Wow Brenda, I want to wish you all the luck in the world, but I know you won't need it, as you can see, everyone that has gone to an experienced center has done great. I am still suffering from the same symptoms...argg, acities..pain...jvd...but they say he "suspects" it will get better, altho, he told me had I come in without a symptom, he still would have operated on me, because of the weight on the right ventricle would have taken my life. He never could give me a time frame, because they don't know. One thing that has improved...No crazy heartbeats...wow, what a difference that is not having atrial fib, or just plain arrythmia's. I have completely enjoyed living without those.
I was sure you all would enjoy that story, altho it was a bit embarrasing. I know we all have one of those realatives that is painful to talk too, this aunt is living with about ten cats and drives away all human beings. argggg...gotta love her...
Nan, Teri, I was pretty sure it has to be from the surgery, being that my body has been tramatized, along with my mind...lol..I will tell you one thing...if you start that laugh, RUN for the pillow, I am still hurting today from it. Still hurts to breathe in...Mister, Nan...Ter...How long on that?? Have a great day guys. Oh and Mozerk...go to:
WE stopped there so many times a day on the shuttle. My brother and girlfriend stayed there. They have kitchenette which cuts down on the food bill...and they are very nice..also has a deli in the lobby. No need for rides..they take you everywhere...we needed "stuff", they took us to the grocery store...walmart...you name it..super cool people. Tell our Einstein hello when you see him...BUT tell him...no pain like Cathy in ICU!! No mistakes on the epuderal. I know you will do great there. Is he operating under the ribs like mine or the sternum?? Lemme know...Cath
