    after latest visit to cardiologist they put me in for surgery and implanted an internal heart monitor, and i may have to have an ICD (Implanted Cardioversion defibrillator)
    doc said i can do some electrical work but absolutely no live work at all(even low voltage)
    and i am limited to what welding i can do as well:mad:
    so i guess all i can do now is train people.

    Not funny, Cardio Version is it I had a procedure whereby they stopped my ticker and restarted it, touch and go for a while, best get your teacher's hat on Mate, or should I say Miter Board and Cape, that is if you understand what those two items are, being from over the pond, anyway whatever you decide all the very best.

    I guess then I'll talk to the local school and see if they need a trades teacher!
    at least I'll be able to start the kids on the right path.
    I can keep a class interested easily (and thats no easy trick for most teachers)

    I know someone who had to have an ICD fitted in his 40s! They're amazing bits of kit.

    A hard and inconvenient situation to have to address.
    I hope the life change required can go through with a minimum of distress and that it may turn out to be beneficial in the long term.
    Good teachers are hard to find, so you could be enhancing the lives of many others.
    Hope all goes well.

    if my teaching drums the fact of safety first and to think before acting then i can have confidence in their learned skills.
    I had one apprentice who was dyslexic, Ittook a little more work but well worth it. she's a top notch spark now

    Drinking isn't a good idea as I expect medication is needed along with the ICD.
