Take care LP. We will be thinking of you and your dad. It sounds like Dad will be all set, so that is one thing your won't have to worry about. That will allow you to concentrate on yourself. With DH at your side, you will come through just fine. You have a great support system with him. We will be looking for your return on the weekend.

People get busy, go on vacation...take a break. Happens all the time. We just welcome them warmly when they show back up.

Your neurosis and my anxiety disorder would get along great together...

Just know that it is noticed when you are gone.

And post if know you're going to be away awhile. We worry when one of our regulars drops off our radar.

Say, I LIKE the sound of being a regular around here - it's a nice place!

Be safe, LP.

and about those small pies: I saw some in a local grocery store. They were priced at $7 for just two small pies!.....anyone care to open a small pie shop with me?

Anyone see the 2007 movie "Waitress"? I got to thinking, way back then, that I'd love to open a pie diner like that one. But my hubby says that although I'm a darned good cook (and pie baker), I don't have a good business head....oh well......Dreams.

I tried to post from the hospital, but had a lot of operator error.
Thank everyone for your kind words. I will briefly recap the events.
On 1/20/12 I went grocery shopping. The check out girl asked me if I was ok, I said I just didn't feel well. I got home and started unloading the groceries and I thought I was going to pass out. I composed myself and got everything put away. My heart would not slow down, it kept racing. I waited all night, no go. Too long I know. At 6am (01/21/12) I called myself a ambulance. I had to walk out to it because they went to the wrong apartment. I was in room 8 and my ex-daughter in-law's father (oldest grand children's grandfather) was in room 4, he had a stroke. We both got shipped up to Washington Hospital Center. He was released before me to rehab where he had a heart attach and did not make it. Anyway. On the 23 they put in 3 stints, then sent me to Echograhm. There they found Aortic valve stenosis. The disision was made to do open heart surgery so they did a bypass on the stints that were just put in. On Wednesday they found fluid building up around my heart. They were going to intibate me and put in a drain. I asked to have it done under twilight, as that is easier on me. They said NO until the next day and said they would try it. It went smoothly. Within hours I was back in my room eating dinner.
I have a long way to go to be fully rehabbed.I still feel worse then I did when I walked to my ambulance. But is it is so good to be home.
