GREAT to hear from you Buddy! You're a tough old bird, and I knew you'd be O.K., but I also understand your feelings, and comments about longevity! Hang in there, and the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) and I hope to see you again soon.

As Bert Stratton (Princess's premiere entertainer) would say, "So Good, So Good, So Good!" So Good to hear from you that you are alive and kicking, and I have no doubt, you will be kicking for a good while to come!
Hang in there buddy, we need you around here!

WHAT A WONDERFUL POST TO START MY DAY!
Todd, so glad you are feeling well enough to let us know how you are. We are not ready to let you go so hang in there and do what the Dr. tells you. All your mates here love you and want you around. If there is anything I can do to help you out please let me know. I can get in the car and be there in a few hours depending on the patrols on the highway it could be quicker.
Love you and praying for your recovery.

Wonderful to hear that things are looking better. At this point you honor all your friends best by taking good care of yourself first. Don't push it, stay comfortable. Everybody's with you.

Todd, this was the first thread I opened this morning as well as every other day since it appeared. But this time, it was ever so special to see your post and hear not only some indication that you're feeling better, but to hear that you will be coming home.

Please, please, please take your meds and listen to the doctors! We'd all like to have you around much longer.

Judy

Am home and took a nap. I'm wiped and truth be told, those incidents took their toll. My EF rate (the amount of blood that is pumped from the heart) is normally 50 to 60%. My current rate is between 20 and 25.

I am on prodigious (and I mean PRODIGIOUS) amounts of Potassium yet it isn't bringing the level up near to what it should be. So they also have me now on a more absorbing type of Magnesium. That was the cause of my problems; my electrolytes were completely out of whack. It's going to take a long time, if ever, before I return completely to what ever "normal" is for me.

Although it's totally against my nature I have promised all as I promise you, that I will be taking it much easier this winter. Jeff told a fellow physician in the room the other day, "You don't know this guy. I do and if you believe that......." I told him, "No Jeff, it's time for both of us to smell the flowers."

Nevertheless, my adored niece DeAnna was there about noon to pick me up and is already back home...and that's after going shopping and spending an hour with me! I am truly blessed beyond belief.

Jennifer (Jeff's wife) and their children Jeffrey and Katie (13 and 16) came every evening to visit and I of course saw Jeff everyday. They all spoiled me rotten. Katie almost literally begged me to please spend Thanksgiving with them (backed up by Jen) and I acquiesced and my family understands as they know next Tuesday will be a difficult day for me and as this will be the first Thanksgiving without her, it will be an entire venue change yet I'll still be with people I love, a love obviously returned in spades.

Again, from the bottom of my heart, Ithank each and everyone of you. Each of you I love as well and for someone whose just experienced what I have, I couldn't lie about such a thing if my life depended upon it.

Blessings on all and Prayers for those on the list as always.

Todd, thank you, for being you. I hope you listen to all who love you,and will slow your pace just a tad. I am planning to meet you in March you know! Don't make everyone who posted here, come down there, and, help you rest.

I found this a while ago, and I thought I would share.


If you fall, and trust me you will fall....
Make sure you will fall on your back...
Because, if you fall on your back, you can see up
And, if you can see up, you can get up....
And you can keep going, and, going, and going.

Good to see you back mate!
I think ''do it while you can'' is the moral too! Not in your case Todd, I think you probably already did it!!

Hi Todd

Glad to read you are back home.

Now we may not be there in person but as Trip says that can be arranged.

Now be good, take your meds and rest. My father suffered from low potassium levels too - but I always put down to him not liking bananas

If I could I would restrict your time on the computer.

Good to hear from you.

Take care

Annie

Dearest Todd,
So nice to hear you are back home and posting again...I bet it will take some time for all the meds to kick in and do what they are supposed to do, that added to what you are supposed to do...Take it easy and may God bless you.

So Glad that the doctors decided you could go home. Please do what they say we want you around for a long time.

You may not physically be able to do all that you are use to doing but you will learn how to live with that. Let others do for you.

Todd, so good to see you are back home. Lack of potassium is a killer indeed. Be a brave patient and listen to the docters and follow their instructions.

Keep sending my hugs from the other side of that big pond!

So glad to hear you are now home, just do what Dr. Jeff is telling you. You are loved by many who want to keep you around for a long time. Rest and then rest some more to get well enough for your big adventure with Ray. Thinking and praying for you often.
