I have been very fortunate to have very few encounters with the health care system during my life, but stuff happens, right?

I will be back and ready to whip my weight in wildcats by New Year’s, so don’t get too excited liberals!

  1. Take care and stay healthy by listening to the Doctors!
    I did, CABX 2001. Still here!

  2. Beth, Thanks so very much! It’s not exactly what I’d like to be doing tomorrow, but you know how it is! All the great encouraging messages like yours are making it easier. That’s for sure, so thanks!

  3. Thanks so very much, Paul. I sincerely appreciate your comment and your praying for me.

  4. Beth, Thanks so very much! It’s not exactly what I’d like to be doing tomorrow, but you know how it is! All the great encouraging messages like yours are making it easier. That’s for sure, so thanks!

  5. Very funny, Pat. Thanks! I got home about an hour ago from the hospital. They weren’t sure I would be released today. Yesterday’s surgery was a tad more complicated than the docs expected, but they did let me go after all for which i am grateful. Onward and upward!

  6. Hey Dodd,
    I got home from the hospital about an hour ago. Thanks so much for your good wishes. If you had told me a month ago that this was in the cards for me, you could have, as the clichĂ© says, knocked me over with a feather! Completely unexpected! I was completely asymptomatic! Can you believe that/ That’s life. Everything is fine until it isn’t.

  7. I was too, until they found I had a silent heart attack. They found some minimal blockage in the arteries and scheduled tests for 1 year later. 5/8/01, right side 99 5 blockage, left at 40 %. 5/8/01 CABX. If anyone has family history of heart problems, 54-55 get checked out. Better safe than gone!

  8. CORRECTION:right side 99 % blockage, left at 40 %. 5/9/01 CABX.

  9. Randy is SOOO right! In about 50% of cases, the first symptom of coronary blockage is a fatal heart attack. Great advice, Randy!

  10. Thanks so much. Susan, for your good wishes. Yes, this surgery is apparently pretty common, but I wasn’t expecting it. My understanding is that the surgery was done by two doctors and a robot. Since I didn’t hear “Danger, Will Robinson, I guess everything went well. 🙂
    Happy New Year to you and yours!
    Best always,
    T
