Guys 1st of all let me thank all of Y'all for all of the Prayers and Smoke!!!! In spite of or despite (of) the fits of depression I suffer with there's been a Duesy of Health issues with me in the last few years that have added a great, great deal more misery to the already present depression that I have had since I was a youngen. The smoke and prayers along with God's help ( I don't use the term "God" much as people assume, well if you want to know about it e-mail me and I will elucidate further.) Anyway the above has brought me back better than new as the health issues I normally have to deal with physically are those odd and unheard of diseases that no one gets except me. (Again if you wanna know more about that then e-mail me again, as above.) This bout to the hospital was actually a really good thing, saved my life among other things. I could have very easily walked west this time around and for a while didn't care one way or another. And maybe now the tide is turning away from me. Here's why.......... The latest issues I have been dealing with lead me to believe that I was gonna have to get into Barb and mine's hard worked for retirement funds principle as insurance'es don't cover it. That was the biggest reason for the depresssion as I didn't know for sure the process would work and if it didn't the money would have been spent for naught. ( The secondary reason of it being, well I won't get into that.) Not a good thing at all!!!! The smoke and prayers all of Y'all sent up along with God's Love has seen that I won't even need the treatment now!!!! YEP!!!! NOW AIN'T That the best News Ever???????!!!!!!! For one thing the diagnosis was congestive heart failure. The good news and news that I nor Barb was aware of is that congestive heart failure is considered curable by our local hospital even if not anywhere else. Now this isn't and doesn't mean those who have had or need bypass surgery. That's a different animal altogether. Congestive heart failure is when the heart is weak and has no previous damage from heart attack where parts of the heart die from no blood present. My heart has only a three small arteries that are clogged. Yes, one is clogged for a goodly length at 80%, the other two small ones are blocked maybe 30-40%. The bottom line gang, rather than bore all of you with all my medical problems, is that along with a *full cut out*, as much as is possible of Sodium, along with a regimen of weight loss and exercise I can recover *Completely* from the disease. That doesn't mean I might not have episodes down the line if I don't take care of myself, but I know I can beat it. My other medical problems aren't so easy. A couple of other decisions also became apparent after spending a few days in a hospital bed. I had a little trouble adjusting to a new mattress, which I have been trying to decide what to buy, but I woke up this morning better rested than in years!!!!!!! Barb and me stopped on the way home from the hospital and ordered a new mattress depending on what info I would call the gentleman back with. We will have our new special 8" hyperfoam mattress by next Tuesday! Now I have to go find myself a recliner. I have never owned one before as most are too big for me. Body mechanics, dayumed sure *Not* because I'm petite.
