I have so much I could say, and no doubt will in the coming weeks. Might even share some pictures of my Frankenstein like chest. Yeah, you know, those nah sayers. Pttuuee much more important things to worry about in life.
I did want to come by real quick and thank everyone for the support, well wishes, and love. It's appreciated. So very much appreciated. The short of it.... I went to my sisters on Halloween to get pics of Bug and Gage.... a sweet pirate and pretty guesome skeleton. A HillBilly was there along with the green giant and Elvis. Yes I swear this was all BEFORE going to the hospital.
I left somewhat early thinking I would work on the pictures and post, but I just didn't feel right. Indigestion. I burped and got relief so nothing out of the ordinary to think it wasn't. Not right then. It just got worse and different things hurt. I told my sister she needed to take me to ER, something was very very wrong.
Things went rather quickly from there. Nothing like showing up saying you feel like you're having a heart attack and your heart beat is over 150 a minute. Many many tests, and it was determined by the enzimes that I infact had a heart attack. We thought it would be as simple as a stint being put in. Not my luck. I had triple bypass and to be very frank and honest I am very lucky to be here today.
My Dr's were great. My heart surgeon, one of the best. When he came out after surgery and met with my family he asked by show of hands who smoked. Some raised their hands, and he stated 'good, you'll keep me in business.' Some may not find that funny but I do. Straight forward and to the point. And so very true.
I remember bits and pieces and will elaborate more at a later time, but let me tell you I don't know what I did so good to deserve a son like I have, but damn straight I am lucky. He stood up and batted the ball out of the park. I will always remember the look on his face, the tears, and him telling me 'Mom, I still need you.' That will keep me plowing forward and changing the things I need to change.
Love you all, and again thank you so much for all the support and love you've shown. It's gonna be awhile and I am taking it easy.............. rest assured YOU WILL see those halloween shots... and some comparisons between the new and old camera.
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh and one more thing... I came back on line this weekend to over 500 pieces of mail. A ton just got deleted, so if you sent something that needed a reply please email again. One mail I did see though was from Vish.... they did get my journal over here. I have the link but have not really gone to see what actually came and what didn't. All in do time.
