    Thanks guys .I am still really banged up and was told today that it will be a few weeks to feel somewhat normal again.I tell you I had stuff plugged into me everywhere! The intense pain is subsiding a little ,just enough for the pain meds to provide a modecum of relief, but I have to be careful not to move suddenly, rip my stitches and just take a little time to recover.The prognosis for my heart is better which I guess was the purpose of this little adventure.I still have a portion of my heart that is dead and scared badly.I have been staying at my daughter and her husband and they have been looking out for dad. I have a first post surgery follow up appointment next friday so I'll have more. Thanks again everyone for your support and we'll get together at a Starbucks when I'm feeling better.

    wow... look at all them monkeys... and not a one of 'em

    with a hair out of place... kind of reminds me of... well,

    you know...

    edit to add: glad you and the hair made it through all right...

    Welcome back. Do you mind my asking what happened to your heart that you would have dead portions? Did you have a bad heart attack or just clogged arteries? I'm glad to hear you're doing better. Let people care for you for now and take it easy. Get well soon.

    Thank you guys...I have survived 4 major heart attacks over the last 9 years with 7 angios 4 stents.The second one damaged my heart muscle to the point it just doesn't work and left it in a weakend state.Also having scarlet fever when I was little was a factor.The 1st was at 43 and I'm 56 now so I have been on Gods good graces these years.So they decided in the last weeks to bypass five arteries and repair a leaking valve. Still pretty sore and my leg is a little swollen where tyhey took the veins out for the bypass but I'm on the mend.....

    Deros,

    Can't they just use something like Fix-a-Flat? or some of that slime stuff you dump into tires?

    Heal up man.

    That stuff's green - you can't put green stuff into red pipes! Now, if they made a red version of Fix-A-Flat or Slime, count me in!

    Wow, having gone through all that AND Vietnam, I think you're tough enough to stick around for a couple more decades. They may have to put one of them bionic hearts in you, but I think you've got lots of life left in you. At least until your hair doesn't look good anymore. Hang in there.

    Coffee and motrin! They both reduce swelling! :P

    I'm not a doctor. I just think a Starbucks coffee and an OC would make you feel better. Hahaha.

    I still have to OC this here FNP45. I might roll down to the local Starbucks today.
