When you're standing on the edge of the abyss, health failing, the idea of being sliced open down the middle for heart surgery may not seem terribly appealing, but most people agree, it's probably preferable to the alternative. Despite a lifetime of healthy outdoor activity and a diet no worse (or better for that matter) than the next man's, in 2017, at the age of 66, Nick found himself under the knife for triple bypass surgery. Would this be the end to hiking adventures and long motorcycle trips to remote parts? Not a chance Recovery from open heart surgery is a long, slow process, but with plenty of help, some dedication, lots of careful walking, and heaps of good luck, it is possible to return to a fully active life. This book describes Nick's experiences with 'CABG' (Coronary Artery Bypass Graft) and his eventual return to doing those things he loves. If you are having, or have just had CABG, hold on to the belief that there is light at the end of the tunnel. And when you are able to return to the activities you enjoy, they will seem more worthwhile and precious than before.
