Blimey! Turn your back on the place, and all hell breaks loose.

You poor darlin's - how terrifying.

Give him my love - and a few bunny smooches.


If he EVER smokes again, I'll kill you me own self, Bernie, you hear?

What a fright! and I'm talking about having to see Bernie with his hat off.

So glad the crisis seems to be past.

Give my best to Bernie when you see him.
Red Stripes on me when I see him.

Such good news. May the ICU be too small to hold him after he wakes up from his stents.

Hold your dominion.

The upside <for me> is that Bernie is going to be so much more kissable as a non-smoker Cool

Tell him to hang onto his hat for a big October smooch.

~~~~~~~~

Good going, Lola.

You reacted in the very best way - got the fella where he could get the help he needs.

The lounger probably needed to cool off in any case.

~~~~~~~~

biggest hugs to both of you

Just got in to Washington from San Francisco, and out of whimsy checked in to A2K and found this.

I'm very glad to learn that Blatham has come through this OK, and that you, Lola dear, are OK too. Odd that such events are what it takes to remind us of what is really important. Apart from a mutual taste for Bernie's wit & lyric flights, and Lola's delicious irony, there is almost nothing about which we agree. Despite this I count you both as valued friends.

It is evident that others here do as well, and, from the selection of characters here, I would say that you two are very well endowed in that aspect of life.

Lola your description of Bernnie's wisecracks while in the benevolent control of the medical types rings true. We are all lifelong prisoners of our personalities - some of us just find that more confining than others.

Don't undervalue the power of Irish Catholic mysticism. I'll arrange for the force to be with you.

Good lord! The lengths some people will go to in order to get out of an argument with me. First Bear, now Bernie .....


Awful glad to hear he's doing well now, and that you were there when the episode started. And also glad to hear he decided to quit smoking, because now he doesn't have a choice. No more smoking ... period. Cigarettes will kill you.

Please make sure Bernie takes care of himself, follows doctor's orders, etc. I'm praying for his full recovery and good health.

Ok, Tico, but down the Bernie voodoo doll. You've had your fun.

Good, quick thinking, Lola. I'm glad he's ok and hoping it's a long long time before this happens again, as in never.

I just got in and set the suitcases down, and I find this!!! Whoa there, Mr. Mountie! You're not supposed to get sick when I'm not here to empathize! You're taking all the fun out of it!

Seriously, all my best wishes to you and Lola, and do everything they tell you to so you can get out of that damn place fast. In other words, bite the bullet and be...agreeable. (I know, I know, but it's not for long.)

Unseriously, it seems awfully odd that you should have a heart attack when you STOPPED smoking. Maybe it was the patch. Those things can kill you...I'd give them up right away if I were you.

Hugs & Smooches to both of you...

Lola, what a shock that must've been for you!

<couldn't have been very pleasant for Bernie, either>

Tell him to keep a stiff upper lip, be nice to the doctors and rest so you can bring him home soon!

Take care of yourself too! Sending hugs and best wishes to you both.

As an aside, re the patch, here's the American Heart Association link on that... (the possibly relevant bits are towards the bottom of the page).

Well, obviously, ask your md if you haven't already, Bernie.

Lola, your's is one of at least seven instances among my friends where the difference between surviving or dying depended on a loved-one being near who thought rationally and quickly, doing all the right things. It's almost as if your flight home from Texas was a life-saving flight. Congratulations on handling a dangerous situation so well. You most certainly saved Blatham's life. Now he owes you big time!

I hope our post printouts are a comfort to Blatham because the ICU can be a dreadfully cold life-saving mechanical place to be. Extra love and human contact with the patient really helps to keep up their spirits.

Hugs to both of you between tears of joy that he's getting better.

Thanks Osso,

I printed it out and I'll bring it to Bernie. Apparently there's a discharge education class or classes, which we'll both attend.

Bernie called a few minutes ago and said he was fine except for the "little thing" that happened last night. Not sure yet what the "little thing" was except chest pain.........I don't like hearing that. They started the nitro drip again (I guess they had taken him off). Bernie can look so healthy and spritely. His positive attitude (joking and light hearted, minimizing any pain) can be deceiving, as we all know now. They said also it may be a couple of broken ribs from when they were pounding on his chest to revive him yesterday in the ER. At least they have him there and can monitor his vital signs. Oh dear........I'll be glad when the procedure tomorrow is over.

I'll learn more when I get to the hospital. Visiting hours do not start until 12:30. I'll be there waiting at the door. Maybe I'll go slightly early and they'll let me in.

You guys hold forth with whatever it is you do to beg mercy from the Universe and I'll do everything I can to help the medical staff. I still think he'll be ok, but he may not be so out of the woods as I thought yesterday.

I'll let you know later. But it may not be until after 7:30 when I leave the hospital. So don't worry if I haven't gotten back to you before then. If someone who has my cell phone number wants to call me, you can leave a message on my cell and I'll return the call when I check my messages. Then that person can report back until I get home. If not, I'll check back in this evening.

I'll be here for a few more minutes. So if someone wants to do this and doesn't have my cell number. Send me a PM and I'll send you my number.

I love you guys for being so supportive.

Lola
I found Baltham's last post before he started playing chicken with his heart. His prediction was correct, but for different reasons.

ps...will be very busy over the next few weeks and likely won't get much time to continue this here including the survey of your references/links - which isn't aided I must tell you by how many joke threads you post in.

And a nod to the author of this thread...this is important stuff. Thank you.

Lola, can't you guys drag a justice of the peace in there or something so you have a little more access to Bernie? That sucks that visiting hours are so limited.

Broken ribs, yoiks. Brings back how serious this all is. If he comes out of this with just broken ribs and otherwise hale and hearty, fantastic, but I know that broken ribs are themselves quite a trial.

Hugs to both of you.
