Get well soon Rodney!
On behalf of Devialet Chat I'd like to wish one of our members - Rodney Gold from Cape Town - a speedy recovery. He leaves hospital today.

Rodney posted this on WBF yesterday (

"2 weeks ago had a massive heart attack.. resulting in an open heart quad bypass a few days later. Prognosis for me looks very good , I am out the hospital tommorow.
I feel like I have been hit by a truck tho .. and have to spend a month at home.
Im moving into my music room for the month , ground floor , upstairs to my bedrooms etc requires a 22 steps up a spiral staircase that is none tooo safe

Nothing about hifi came to mind as I was "dying"... mostly stuff like I hope my wife an kid do ok and find all my investments etc... if I had actually shuffled off this mortal coil.. my hifi would have been taken care of re sale and appraisal by a pal

In the interim , I got lucky , dodged a bullet and have a fresh restart... in celebration gonna get me that other Deviialet D premier I want .. to make a dual monoblock 500 watt system

Overalll, after all this ,my mindset has a spade a friggen shovel and avoid or chase away fools and bulldust artists without blinking an eye."

Sorry to hear about your heart by-pass, but hopefully your on the mend now. My wife's father had 3 heartaches almost 20 years ago and is still going strong in his early 80's, so you'll get there mate!!!

Yes, family are number one when things are on a bit of a low, but I'm sure they will help you get through the next month, and get you back on to a healthy path.

And to have a month living in the music room.

Seriously though, all the best for a speedy recovery.

Let the family take care of you and get well, that's the priority now. Reward them, too, I'm sure it's been tough for them, too.

All the best, and I hope you have a speedy recovery!
