Well guys and gals I haven't spent much time on here in the last three months. I went into the hospital three months ago and they gutted me like a ship jack and give me a tune up. Well the way they explained it to me I didn't have much choice in the matter. I thought well I'll be back on my feet and running wide open in six weeks. Boy was I ever wrong about that. I spent a week in intensive care and when they sent me home I felt like someone had parked a mack truck on my chest. I was told upon leaving the hospital to watch my eating and exrcise all I could stand. Well I crawled on and off that tread mill for three weeks and it got easier all the time. My wife and kids said you are doing great at this time I figured being alive was doing good. I went back to the DR at 4 weeks and was walking good and not having to set down and rest any. Did I mention during this 4 weeks My wife had took me to wal-mart every day to get something and had walked the fool out of me there. At 4 weeks I went back to the dr and saw a few of the guys that had this type of surgery at the same time of a little before I did and they were dragging around or in wheel chairs. I couldn't believe that and My Dr. was tickled to death on my progress. Took me off a whole bunch of meds to. I have visited here a few times but have stayed long but now I can get back to posting pretty regular again so I'll be here more now. I feel like I am 20 years younger and eating like a horse. I have gained 25 lbs in three months. I will be retiring in about 6 months so Until then I will be around a bunch aftrer that the wife and I are going to travel for about six months. Sorry for the long post but for those who know me know now that I am back to my old self except with a good tune up.
