I almost spend Thanksgiving in the hospital, but still get something done on the T’Bird.

An episode of chest tightness, mild headache and general “Well this doesn’t feel quite right” last Tuesday morning at work led me to go down to the ER, which lead to being admitted, and nearly ending up on the heart cath table. Fortunately, that didn’t happen, everything ultimately pointed to no cardiac injury, the (extremely) high blood pressure I had initially was probably stress. After a stress test, which was OK, I was discharged late Wednesday afternoon and we made it to my sisters for Thanksgiving without any problem.

As part of my new stress relief program, I got a little but done on the T’Bird. The new tulip panel is completely welded in, and the shortened tonneau cover is also sporting a new lip at the rear edge. I got all the welds finished and ground down this afternoon, and am ready now to start slinging some filler on. It feels good to go out into the shop and get lost in a project for a while.
