My good old Earle:
Thanks for your sweet note of concern. Let me hasten to say first that Dudek's diagnosis was over-pessimistic. There was no coronary and no angina.
I had what the doctors call tachycardia a very fast pulse 150 beats per minute which wore me down a lot. I went to the Hospital. Nothing organic purely functional and nervous strain on the heart but serious enough to keep me in the house for last month where I am now.
The pulse has slowed down under digitalis but it has left me weak too weak to get out of doors. I trust I can get out by the new year.
Bless you & your family and my benediction covers any stray cat or dog you may have in the house.
