So glad to read that you are headed home to TAKE IT EASY AND MEND !!!!!!. Beats the alternative, and i won't be long before you are able to do stuff if you take it slow now. I am no one to talk, because I get very impatient, but your wife needs you to get better and we sure need you here!!!!

Well I don't agree with anything but the first sentence. Getting old beats the alternative, dying sure doesn't look easy to me from the outside looking in, I'd be lying if I said I'm not afraid of dying, at least I know what I have here and where I'm going.


About a week ago, I was checking the mineral feeder. In less than a heartbeat, the world was spinning around me. Like a flash, I recognized that I was going to faint. I went down, I barely hit the ground with my knees when I regained full consciousness.

I have a friend who is an EMS employee. He took my blood pressure. It was 106/64. My pulse was 54.




I called my brother and ask that he and I make contact once a day. Because if I drop dead, I don't want my 2 dogs to die of thirst.

But one thing this taught me: GOING OUT LIKE A LIGHT IS THE EASIEST TASK THAT A HUMAN WILL EVER COMPLETE.

Dying is easy. The devil is in getting everything in order while you are still in a conscious state.


Becoming dehydrated will make you dizzy and you can pass out. I have been taking lisinopril/htz 20-12.5 for the past thirty years. We have to adjust the level of the HTZ in the summer when out working and sweating . My doctor is aware of this and works with me on it.

Just seeing this thread now, been a few days since getting on CT. I am so GLAD that you are back home and back to posting. Do as the medical professionals tell you. I hope your recovery is quick and uneventful. :)

HAha, I can relate to that GB, I had 4 lonnnng days and nights in hospital with my knee. Probably why I recovered so well, no one could hold me down when I got home, just had to do things. Not saying that you should do the same though, different situation, you just gotta put yourself in their hands for a bit.

That was my big problem when my foot had me down. I read an incredible book, American Brutus, about John Wilkes Booth. TV was awful, but at least there were Bowl games and the NFR. I did a lot of movie watching, that helped. Good luck with your boredom, and I'm glad you're on the mend!

Have they restricted your walking ??? you can kill hours just walking. That's what i have always done after a surgery that restricted working. However i've never had anything that evasive as a heart surgery
