Good to hear from you.
Hey, you really have a good VA system there in Dallas -FtWorth. watching the news most veterans have not such good hospitals to lousy.
I remember my brother in FordahmVA hosp in 1968, he was terribly mutilated by a hanging homemad claymore. He eventually left the hospital but cant be listed as a war casualty because he overdosed.he was terribly damaged. I used to visit him with my Dad who told my mom not to go to the VA and then when my Dad was at work I went with my mother to visit..it was about 15 city blocks from our apartment house.My Dad was WWII/Korea Vet.
Oh well...I'm rambling..let me get a little john Wayne and hit the rack 0500 comes quickly.
Well perfect example...no sooner than I hit the send button on the last message I sent to you and BOOM....something happened with the welding machine...blew all my breakers and cooked the main ..
everything back up and running...thank the Lord.
Sorry for being off the radar a bit...But having 0500 wake ups and 10hr work days.
I have a "professional" crew...but here below Texas you need to bo constantly on top of the whole job, the best crews show up lacking tools, there are constant runs for materials, as they don't plan well. then there is always the unknown variable ie . someone breaks a pipe digging a hole...always something..i'm lucky I have really good guys,,,but still it's south of Texas.
I'm building a good solid area for Sam , ,big area to run and play and train..all quality cyclone fence and steel posts...a lot of welding...and concrete work.
Most days (the last 4 or so I'm pretty pooped...luckily I have to run to the big hardware store by the big Church a couple times a day.
I wish you continued progress. Prayers
I think that was a wise move on your part, leaving that cushion seal bandage on , some extra time.
I had mine on the left Brachial(arm) artery, and I did the same thing! .. All I could imagine was that thing startin' a spurtin' and 911 ...so I did the same, as my Irish Mom's expression, "to be sure, to be sure".
Glad to hear your coming along, but, take it slow, the groin incision takes a few days longer of real rest
than does the arm. You know now, I can't remember if it was the right or left, I'm guessing the left was closer to the heart, but remember that seal on the right....Oh well that's my banged up hard drive.HaHa.
Glad to hear from you, And in good spirits!
Pleasant surprise to hear from you so soon!.I remember that seal thing..good to take it slow and let that artery close up good. glad to hear that all went well.
I'll keep the prayers coming, you take good care of yourself in the meanwhile.
I am still praying for you dear friend, during rosary hour! I am trying to catch to catch up! Too much to deal with sometimes. Went to mass on the 15th, will light a candle for you next time I go to the co cathedral!
take care of yourself
My best count on the wanderers that the "shepherd" had to get back into the lower corral was 11,they were all "beceros" juvenile cattle.(still like little cars with legs and stubborn, hahaha).
Sam seems to be doing fine, I think,Thank the Lord for a good 2 weeks, or more like 3, and weight back on and a couple growth spurts.
Well, you are probably home resting up now. If they went through your arm, I guess I'll hear from you in a day or so, if they went inguinally, probably not for at least a few days.
Lots of prayers for you.
I hope you are comfortable and bounce back quickly.
Look forward to hearing from you when you are able, be careful and don't do to much too soon, follow the Dr's orders.
Well I guess you are getting all ready and rested up for tomorrow. Best wishes. and a quick comfortable recovery. A lot of prayers sent your way. Look forward to hearing from you when you are up for it.
If I'm correct, tomorrow is your cath procedure, and I wish you well. The cardiac team you have at the VA, from your reports seem to be a top notch team, so you are in good hands. Then there are all the prayers being sent your way...so that puts you in the best hands of all!
I'll pop in to the message board later....talk soon.....God bless.....Mart.
