Sansa85 :  Ugh, no one ever wants a crash course in heart medicine!! It’s nice they were able to do it in the cath lab, at least!

He has zero information about it unfortunately. As soon as his cardiologist mentioned surgery, he kind of zoned out. I had a million questions when he told me about it and he didn’t ask anything. He should have another echo-cardiogram in July to gauge where he’s at, I think I’ll go with him because he just doesn’t retain info very well when he’s stressed. After seeing your post yesterday, we went for a nice long walk & had a healthy dinner. I told him we need to start looking after ourselves better, so here’s to living long and healthy lives!

Hang in there, bee! Is your husband on a statin? With his personal and family history of heart disease, he should be! Statins reduce your risk of heart attacks and strokes and are really well tolerated medications.

My goodness, Bee. It sounds like you have your own little post surgical unit to manage.

I am happy to hear that your daughter is doing all right.  No doubt, she’s not very comfortable, but, she will get there.

If hubby is fretting over the lawn, I would imagine he’s definitely feeling stronger.

You mowed the lawn?!  I can’t even imagine. There are people who will do that if you give them money.  

Remember your self care, Bee.
