Denise, Bill, Kitt , all of my Healing Well friends

I know I have been absent from the forum the last few months.. I have been doing quite well where my NF is concerned.. still contend that I would have it done all over again if it was necessary.. an excellent surgeon and excellent advice from the people here at Healing Well makes for an excellent surgery and recovery experience..

I hope all is well with all of you, Denise I hope you are enjoying those grandbabies.. Bill I have only good wishes for you and your family.. Kitt, I hope this finds you getting better everyday..

I have had another incident with my heart.. I was afib free for over a year after my ablation.. then my PCP gave me prednisone for an unknown insect bite and it kicked me back into afib.. passed out at my cardiologists office and ended in the hospital for 5 days. much better now and out of afib once again...

Just wanted to check in and say Hello to all of you

Nice to meet you, Sandi. I'm new and just had my NF. It's been very trying. It saddens me I didn't join prior and earlier in my 'recovery.'

Best of luck to you.

Good to see you back. I still drop in some in the gerd forum. I'm mainly in the lupus and fibro forums trying to get my head wrapped around these new worries in my life.

Glad the docs got your heart ticking right again.

A rainbow before the storm??? hmmmmmm.. .. oh well.. maybe it is an indication that you have to appreciate the good and beautiful things even tho bad things may happen after????
Who knows.. my Mama always said don't question the good things that happen just try to prevent the bad....

Hope everyone has a great week looking at you... Check ups tomorrow with PCP and Cardiologist.. all good I hope!!!!

Watch for those beautiful rainbows.. they will bring smiles to the saddest face!!!

Sandi,
 
I am absolutely thrilled to hear from you my friend..........remember the "Whatever Happened to Bill?" thread.  It truly served it's purpose at the time as all the members that posted had issues and so much support was shared.
 
I am glad to read you are doing fine but had read your A-Fib was acting up again and I know that causes you high anxiety.  Hope your Cardiologist has found the best way to treat you.
 
Keep on talking with us as we are always here to support you along the way no matter what your problem is your still a member of the GERD Forum.
 
Love, Kitt

Dear Sweet Kitt... I am so happy to hear from you!!!... and all here on the forum..

I am no longer in afib.. my PCP seems to agree with me that the prednisone caused the afib to start up.. cardiologist is on the fence about it and I go to see the electrophysiologist on the 9th. Heart doc has me on 2 heart meds now and the newest blood thinner.. not really crazy about all this but at least I am out of the hospital and back pretty much on my feet... I am happy to report that mu NF is still functioning as it is supposed to.. still cannot eat bread.. can eat well (oven) toasted garlic bread and that type of bread in extreme moderation.. makes me nauseous if I go overboard. cannot drink milk anymore.. hurts my stomach??? but I have not gained any weight back and this makes me happy.. But I have a much better, healthier diet than I had before....

I just am seriously wondering where Denise is.. haven't seen her recently... I miss hearing about your sweet babies....

wanted to tell everyone about my little Abby girl.. she will soon be 5 and when I found myself in the hospital recently, my sweet daughter sent me an audio clip of my precious Abby saying a prayer for Jesus to help the doctors make her Mamaw all better soon... that had all the healing power anyone could ever need!!

Until next time everyone....
If you have never heard Iz sing Somewhere Over the Rainbow.. you are missing a beautiful experience listen...(paste this into your browser) http://www.izhawaii.com/over-the-rainbow-official-video/

More rainbows to come!!!!! Smiles along with them....

Hi Sandi!
Sorry I've been MIA...we went on a little vacation get-away to celebrate our 40th anniversary, and when we came back had all kinds of demands and things we needed to catch up on...my son turned 36, and we had a birthday party for him with all the family, we had lots of babysitting duty (he coaches girl's Varsity Basketball, and has fall b'ball leagues and open gyms and his wife (a PA) works at an urgent care and has lots of strange hours that make it necessary for grandma and grandpa to step in and help out.)
 
In fact, next week, our babysitting schedule makes our heads spin.  We're taking over for open gym, fall basketball league, and open house at the high school where my son teaches, and on the weekend, he's going away for a basketball coaching clinic, and his wife is teaching a class in Washington DC, so we have then all weekend as well!  Yikes!  I guess it'll either keep us young or kill us!  Our son really appreciates our help, and often tells us that he couldn't coach if it weren't for our help.  That is very true. turn
 
On top of all that, I'm tutoring (and preparing for) five students now, as well as spending a day a week in my other son's third grade classroom, so I can keep my finger in teaching and help him out!  I enjoy it, but there's another day that is spoken for!  Needless to say, I'm keeping super, super busy in retirement!
 
Your story about your little granddaughter warms my heart.  I'm sure it was a key to speeding up your recovery!  I can just picture it. <3
 
That prednosone can do a number on so many things...sorry to hear it sent you into a tailspin.  Glad to hear things are back in control, though!
 
It's wonderful to see you here on the forum again!  You've been missed greatly!
Have a wonderful day, and keep looking for those rainbows!  Whenever I'm lucky enough to see one, I think of you!

Sandi-

I think the pre storm rainbow was a good sign. It blew out as fast as it blew in. Then we had a great night picking bluegrass music til the wee hours of the morning.

I'll be a bit MIA again this weekend. Going back down to see our daughter and watch some college softball. staying the whole weekend this time.

Take care,
Bill

Hi Bill,
Have. A wonderful time at your daughter's game! We've got a wedding our of town on Saturday, but I'll cover as much as possible...I'll be around Friday night, and Sunday night (babysitting!)

My son is coaching his girls in fall b'ball Sunday evenings...we're actually babysitting right now so he can run an open gym for his team.

Hope your daughter and her team do well this weekend!
Have a safe trip!
