Oh, Patty, I am so sorry to hear what you had to go through. But I am glad things are slowly getting back to normal. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

My Dad is in convalescent care but is not doing as well as last time. He has been diagnosed with depression and is definitely suffering from anxiety as well. I am not going up as often (used to be at least once a day) and am alternating with my sister. I have my chronic pain program which is very intense (two full days a week) and some other health problems that I am getting a whole bunch of different tests for.

I get on here when I can. I appreciate that I am missed when I am gone, just like I miss others when they go under the radar. We are all family here and it really shows. Thanks everyone for caring.

This week is DH's first ever paid holiday (he mainly worked for himself or on contract) and with Dad looked after we are planning some day trips, relaxing with movies and TV shows we have recorded or are on Netflix, and are even taking a Valentine's Day trip.

So, my attendance will remain spotty, but know that things are okay with me.

Patty, I glad to hear you are doing better. Looks like you dodged a bullet. Follow doctor's orders and you'll be as good as new.

yes, patty. concentrate your efforts on helping your body to recover from the ordeal you have been through. from what i've seen, you're a spitfire, and you can do it once you set your mind to it! :) you are lucky to have had such an excellent hospital as washington hospital center available to you--especially in the area of cardiac care. that and your own mental and physical strength and determination, helped pull you through an extremely dicey situation. best wishes for your future rehab and recovery. keep a good thought.... :)

Patty, it is IMPRESSIVE to know you walked to the ambulance! Wow! You have to come from some hardy stock there, gal!

Needless to say, we are happy to hear you are home and on the mend. What a scary ordeal. Glad you are back online.

That's all right. I will stand by and watch the two of you go nuts and laugh the whole time.
