How many time do I have to tell you to chew your food ;-) I'm so so 
glad that you are OK -- after all, there are still 4 years of the 
project to run ;-)

I too get oesophageal spasm, and it is NO fun, but its better than 
the big AMI. I've just come from a funeral on friday for a wonderful 
friend Anna. She was not so lucky, and her chest pain (with no risk 
factors or previous problems) was a big AMI. So we farewelled her, 
and were saddened by the 3 children all under 12 -- puts it in 
perspective, and makes you want to enjoy the time you are given.

Keep punching and keep well. Good to hear it was a false alarm ;-)

Cheers and here's luck
