Sorry folks,
Told you all I would tell you all later what happened, so for those of you who have asked & reminded me, here is the short version.
I have been fighting what I was told was Congestive Heart Failure, on my own for 4 to 5 months now, scared totally out of my mind. Turn's out it was Not CHF. I have in fact, all along been fighting blood clots coming from my legs to my Pulmonary arteries in both lungs.Last Wednesday Morning @ about midnight was getting off the couch & actually thought someone had shot me in the chest through the front door. I said, "It will get better like always" , It did not! Had to give in & go to ER. Good thing I did, Had 2 massive clots, one in each pulmonary artery of each lung. Doctor's all said, if I would have waited I would most defiantly have NOT seen noon Wednesday.
So, spent a week in the hospital 3 days in ICU & am now on a new & exciting journey.
A bit of a pain in the rear, but I am still here to aggravate my sweetie Lisa.
On Strong blood thinners, Heart meds, Lung meds, Oxygen 24 / 7. Things will get better, been told it will be a LONG SLOW road, but things will get better. they already have just the 2 days I have been home. There you have it folks, You still have to put up with me for a while longer.
Ya all Take Care & Be Safe.

It's real important to not hook the O2 up to the catheters..

One way to tell is if you start floating up to the cieling like a big balloon.. right away you know you have a "hook up" problem..

Yep... your sure in them!!

a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.

If you don't

It feels good to come out of the ER alive!

My problems have all been to do with my diabetes. I go far too low in blood sugar, and my wife has to call 911 to come & do stuff; sometimes they take me to the ER.
Now she doesn't want me to leave house without her, because she's worried that I'll let too much time elapse before I check my blood sugar. I don't consider myself a very lovable person (I'm definitely a curmudgeon), but I'm very, very lucky that she does indeed love me and wants me to stay alive.

I'm so very glad that you're (relatively) OK; at least much, much better. I hope you stay around for a long while. You're a very nice person, and are a good influence on the site, and I'm sure that you are on everyone with whom you come into contact.

Good to hear from you Bob, Sounds like you are in the same boat that I am Mr, Bob. We both have wife's that love us a bunch!! Enough to bust our balls & see we do mostly right. I know I am a VERY lucky man to have my Lisa, & I know you feel the same about your wife.
Thank's very much for the kind words, I really appreciate it, It makes me feel good.

ecaman, as a side note

I WILL send you the bore light that I promised as soon as I find it, I left it on the kitchen counter and well, you know, the missus 'whisked' it away while I was at work and can't remember what she did with it........$#@!!!((&! :-)

When my wife "straightens up", I never have a clue where anything is. I like things in the same place all the time, to the extent that my younger daughter continually tells me that I'm anal. Oh damn! Should I have said that in some place that Runaway and ebear could see it?

Rest up. I'm going too - it's dinner time.
