....Bruce spent a quiet mellow Christmas Eve with our family (not counting the grandkids squealing and playing)...he was heading out day after Christmas with Sister to head south for a mini vacation and visit other family....never made it...I received a call from his sister later that day saying he wasnt feeling right and asked to be taken to emergency room-good thing because they discovered he had a hole blow out in his heart and had emergency open heart surgery....if it was 20 minutes or less longer he would not be with us.....he is currently in ICU and is very sore but ok and hanging in there considering all he's been thru....just spoke with him on phone a little while ago...he's going to be laid up a while with therapy after he heals up....I'm sure he will jump in here and update when he's able to and add to or correct anything I may have gotten wrong/left out.....in the mean time any prayers are welcomed and appreciated....
.....stay tuned....

I returned home to my Kitties Friday night. I am sleeping (?) in the recliner for now. Kitties are happy I am home. All 3 sleeping in chair with me.

The doctor that operated on me said that in his 32 years as cardiologist he never encountered anything like my situation. Scar tissue at my original stent site and ablations blew out. 2 blood clots saved my life. They stemmed the flow enough to keep me alive. Hole about the size of a nickle. They lost me once on the table but got me back. 20 more minutes and it would have been too late.
Me listening to my PTSD paranoia saved two lives as I would have been the one driving to Georgia. An accident at speed on the highway could have cost my sister her life as well.

Feeling very blessed for 2020.

Glad you're home and out of the hospital. Rest up and if they give you physical therapy do it, some time it's PITA, but it works and helps recovery.
Still prayin for ya.
Ron

Home almost a week now. Home health care has kept me busy. 3 nurse visits, PT, OT, Social Worker, bath aide and another nurse visit today.
Next week have appointments with My primary care Doctor on Monday, Shock Doctor on Tuesday and my Cardiologist on Thursday.Next week I have post op followup with my surgeon. Got one friend to give me a ride on Monday and Mario is giving me rides Tuesday and Thursday. The followup I will be able to drive myself, was told 3 weeks before I could drive and that will be 3 weeks and 4 days.
