Things were a bit confusing for awhile. I had apparently developed a pneumothorax, but it is gone now. There was a time there that I was concerned about it, but it turned out ok. I will be discharged tomorrow, and will stay in the hotel, for a couple of days. I have already made tentitive plans for going down to Florida, but the exact day, (possibly Friday or Saturday) is stilll up in the air.

I am still rather weak,(notice no green bold writing), but I am seeing improvement almost hourly.

This wing of the hospital has a roof terrace, and is beautiful. On one angle, you can see the city, and Lake Erie over to one side.

When I get back home, and feel a bit stronger, I will fill all youse guys with all the gory details.

@Phoenix32890,
Is this going to be like a CSI autopsy gory? Weren't you asleep? The best therapy would be South Beach but my wager is hot and humid.

Great to see you, Phoenix, even it you ain't green. (I knew something was missing.)

Get better quick. Good trip home.

Apparently, my condition was a bit more than what my &*)+ cardiologist anticipated. I ended up with both an aortic valve replacment, and a single bypass .I think that I will be changing docs when I get home.


Goodness me, Phoenix! Shocked

But it's really good to hear that you're on the mend now. And that they're treating like a princess in there! Very Happy

My best wishes for a fast recovery.

Here are a few spares just in case they are needed. The good thing is that you can also use it as a visual aid when telling people what you've been up to.

Glad you are on the mend. Sunny Florida is awaiting for you.
