Ay carumba! That doesn't sound good at all! Are you feeling ok now? Get yourself down here in some warm Florida sunshine and soak up some vitamin D. Hope you get approval to travel soon!

Thanks Judy. I'm feeling better and stronger and more impatient with each passing day. Actually, my orthepedic surgeon said that time in Florida would be better than Physio!

I will definitely see you soon.

Yay! That's great news, Barefoot! Your orthopedic surgeon sounds like one smart cookie. Lounging at the pool and learning how to oil paint will heal you in no time!

Oh dear,
I googled pulmonary embolisms and see that it is blood clots. I hope they have it under control. I hope you are feeling well and you stay well and healthy. I hope. I hope.

Barefoot, I can empathize with you. 2 years ago I had a knee replacement. 8 days later I was rushed by ambulance to the hospital due to bi-lateral pulmonary emboli...13 in the left and 11 in the right. Recuperation is slow. I finally had a Celect vena cava filter put in to collect any residual clots. Been fine since then...just took a few months. Hang in there.

Mac9, thanks so much for the words of encouragement. I also have bi-lateral pulmonary emboli, and stupidly, I had chest pains for eight days before I went to Emergency. I ignored the pain until it was non-stop and excruciating. They told me at the hospital I was lucky to be alive.

Ladies, listen to your bodies. If you're having chest pains, get to a hospital!

In my case, the doctors in ER considered filters, but opted instead for blood thinners (warfarin, which is rat poison). I was in hospital for eight days trying to get my dosage at the correct level. But now I'm stable. I sure don't like taking warfarin every day, but it's a necessary evil. In four months I'll be able to stop taking it, yay.

You're right that recuperation is slow. As we get older, I guess we can expect our bodies to start breaking down. Our best defence is a positive attitude. I try to focus on the fact that I'm lucky to be alive. And I know that with the Florida sunshine, my recuperation will be much faster, so I'm hoping to get to TV before the end of January!

So sorry to hear that, Barefoot, but very glad to hear that you will be ok. Wow, that is really scary! We are so good about taking care of others and we would never let our dogs go with an ouchy for very long but we ignore things in ourselves. I am glad you are on the mend now. You are in my thoughts for a speedy recovery. Hugs.

Here's to a quick recovery Bare and now you can stay til the end of May as it doesn't warm up much before that up here, at least not in the recent past. Take care of yourself and we hope to see you soon.

Cheers,
LW888

Larry, thanks so much for your supportive note and kind thoughts. I believe that these little setbacks are meant to make us stronger and more appreciative of all the joys and pleasures we have in TV. I'm healing fast and we should be on our way soon to TV.

Perhaps we'll all meet at The TOTV Crispers Lunch in Jan or Feb.

Billyg, the luncheons are the third Friday of the month at Crispers. Unfortunately, this is the same day as the VAA meeting. Hope to meet you one day!

Sorry, I should have told you about TOTV meeting at Crispers when we were talking about our Book Club. I thought you knew. I have my fingers crossed I'll be able to be at the January 20 lunch. Some people have lunch, others just have a snack or soft drink.

As Judy said:

3rd Friday of the month
3 PM
Crispers
Southern Trace Plaza, CR 466
