Heart surgery this morning!
Posted by: GeneL
Date: October 26, 2018 08:17AM
I've been feeling worse and worse for the last three weeks. Steadily declining until I find it difficult to walk and I'm short of breath.
My pulmonologist checked my lungs, CAT scan and breathing tests and told me my lungs were in good shape. This left me wondering what my problem was, so when Mavis had a heart related scare and called 911, I decided to go with her in the ambulance.
After several days of tests, including a nuclear stress test, the cardiologist in the hospital wanted to do an angiogram.
Since I didn't know him, I decided to see my previous doctor who had already done two angioplasties and I trusted him.
Well, here I am about to go to the hospital. Couldn't sleep, so I'm up and going to jump in the shower.
If they do the angioplasty I will be in the hospital overnight and will have my dialysis there as well.
Some way to spend my birthday on Halloween!
I really wish that a bunch of my forum friends could be around to lend me a hand. I look at all the collectibles that I have stored for a long time and I could use some help to sell the "stuff."
I could never manage to sell on ebay and my current thinking would be to get everything cleaned up and ready for sale and to take it to the Vintage Market at Saddleback College. I probably could make enough to buy a used vehicle if I'm able to drive again after surgery.
I can't do this on my own, so I'm frustrated because I can't put this together by myself.
As I write this I realized how unlikely it is to think that anyone could and would make this happen for me.
Oh well, I have to get going, so keep a good thought for me and if everything goes well, I will post from the hospital and let you all know how I'm doing.
As always, thanks for your thoughts.

Good thoughts headed your way from up north here, Gene!

And I'll second the request for pics of any cute (female) nurses....

Good thoughts coming your way, GeneL! Sorry I can't help with your collectible clear-out from the other side of the country (and, looking at my garage and overflowing shelves, it's obvious that I could use the same sort of help myself!). However, I'm sure you'll be feeling more energetic soon, and will be able to start nibbling away at the mountain (try the Flylady way, 15 minutes at a time!).

Best wishes, hope your procedure is already over and done with. smiley-signs003

Sending you lots of love and healthy thoughts, GeneL! And remember - one sign of a well-lived life is unfinished projects. Focus on getting better first and collectibles second. wink smiley

Here I am looking a little forlorn, but my doctor just came in and he was obviously in a good mood, so everything should be okay...

Add my name to the list of well wishers. Sending good vibes your way.

As for selling things, perhaps you can hire someone to sell on eBay for you? There are people that do that for a living. I have no idea how that works financially, however.

Best wishes, Gene!

Keeping you in my prayers. As to eBay, they do offer a service to sell your items. Of course you take a hit, but it might be something to look into.

If I lived near you, I'd help you out.....

All my best thoughts...

Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts.

I am so frustrated right now because three times I had written things I had wanted to say about our forum and why it means so much to me.

THREE TIMES! I was typing away, describing my feelings in detail, only to be interrupted and when I went back to pick up where I left off, everything that I had written was gone.

I am too tired to begin again. I'm getting my dialysis treatment right now and since I didn't sleep a wink last night, I am going to keep this brief and then go to sleep.

Tomorrow, with some energy restored (fingers crossed) I will start over and share with you what I had wanted to say.

For now, you wonderful people, I love you and beyond words I appreciate your support.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Good to see you back. Rest up, we can wait knowing that you're still here!

I can relate to the not posting due to your energy levels. I keep delaying updates on my support page just because I want to go into detail, but just can't gue to physical and emotional stress.

Take your time, we'll still be here for you when you're up to it.

I hope and expect the surgery went well for you, and that you will soon be recovered and jumping in the shower (watch out for the soap!). Best wishes for a speedy return to health! We are waiting!
