  1. Very nice. My Al was a gardner, also. I am too tired and achy to plant one this year.
  2. Hard day for you, George. Birthdays and anniversaries are really hard, as is every day. Peace to you. Gin.
  3. Mitch, I guess. that means I have to order something! Gin
  4. These last few days have been so hard AGAIN. I go to church and miss so much going with Al. Went out to celebrate my grandsons graduation and miss Al being there. Go to the health club and remember the many years we went together. I guess it never ends. Gin
  5. Glad to hear that at least the surgery is over. Hope the car starts behaving and the follow up has good news. Gin
  6. Karen, lit sure has been the saddest and loneliest time of my life, also. I try to get involved in different activities, but it does not change being without Al. Family and friends are done mourning...I am not.
  7. Gwen, If you ever figure out how to heal a broken heart, let us all know!! Post it in Capital letters. Gin
  8. Doc said the pain should gradually decrease. It was a very long walk to his office. Hate doing these things without Al. Now doc wants me to see regular cardiologist and pacemaker doc.
  9. hi Karen, I am coming along very slowly. Lots of pain with incision and left arm and shoulder. I hope to see my primary tomorrow to see what he thinks. I am sure that my age is not helping the healing. Will let you know what he says. Thanks for checking. gin
  10. marg. I was not on any drug that lowered my heart rate. I tried to talk him into giving me a drug to raise it, but he drew me pictures and explained why it would not work. He called ahead and I did not have to wait at ER. They were waiting for me.
  11. Hi all,. I did not feel well Monday morning, nothing specific....just off. Took my BP. Fine. Then I checked pulse....only 44 instead of a regular 75-85. Had an appointment with eye doc. Called regular doc and he said to keep my eye appt since he will check BP and pulse. My pulse was only 40 there,. Then I went to see my internist,. He took an ecg and now my pulse was only 34. He called cardiologist and got me an appointment with cardiologist for the morning. He was adamant that I go directly to hospital. By 2pm Tuesday I was operated on and now have a pacemaker. I was fortunate that I did not have to brood about it too long,. It is so hard to go through these health issues without our mates. They kept me overnight and now here I am. The incision site hurts a lot and I can not use my left arm for much. I have a good friend who has been a trmendous help and my 2.daughters have been supportive. One is a cardiac rehab specialist so she knows what questions to ask. It was a 3rd degree heart bloc. I am not as tired as yesterday, so that is very good. Gin
