Just reading your blog. In hospital they transfuse us full of fluid which thank heavens goes with the help of the fluid tablets so that would probably explain the weight fluctuation.
The double vision is something you should refer to your GP. One thing I have found with the cardiac surgeons is they take no risks what so ever. Do see someone about it ASAP.
Let's not worry about the weight gain. I'm sure with your walking regime you'll be dropping the weight before too long. How far do they want you to walk. If you need a walking buddy you can give me a call.
Ahhhhh...the sleep interuptus...well... you are not alone in that area. Keep on doing well.
Harold, Welcome Home!
So glad to hear that everything went so well.
The wonders of modern medicine...Thanks for keeping us informed. Now take care & do what the Drs. tell you.
Best Wishes, Caroline & Doby
My thoughts and prayers are with your for a speedy recovery. I had my open heart surgery about 4 months ago November 7th. I live on long Island Ny. I had my surgery at Boston Childrens Hospital. I'm one of the younger patients they see at 32 years old. Jon B
Hi Karen and Hal,
One down one to go! Mort and I are thinking of you and hope all goes well on the 31st. Hopefully, Michael will keep us posted. It is nice to know that we can check up on you through this web site. Xo, Paula
First of all, I just realized that I should have written my name on that first post - it was indeed from me (Jeff).
Second, I only now realize that this whole shebang is open to the public, so the whole world can see this Journal and all the comments. Just a precaution to all you people who were planning on posting anything 'inappropriate'.
How smart of you to set this page up! It's such a wonderful way to keep in touch and know how you are doing. Terry and I are sending you all our special thoughts and prayers. If there is anything you need or that Karen needs I hope you will not hesitate to call on us! We love you!
