you may have noticed I haven't been around the past 2 weeks. I have been in the hospital for much of those weeks. I had open heart surgery last Tuesday the 11th for a quadruple bypass. It was found Thursday the 6th during a stress test revealing the blockages and I was admitted to the hospital that day. I just got home last night. I want to stress this, I was lucky I listened to my body and ASKED my Dr for the stress test. I never had the "Big one" heart attack. Instead, I have zero damage to my heart and now have clear arteries...oh and a lot of pain for now ? But this will get better, I will get better and that's the most important thing. Mine started as an ache between my shoulder blades that just didn't seem right. From my cardiologist, he says there are many different precursors so if it doesn't feel right, see your Dr. and ask for tests. It's your body, it's your right to ask. I won't be posting much yet, give me a few weeks but thank you to all that reached out with thoughts and prayers, it means so much to me,
Larry
