    Took me about a year till I could do a lot of twisting and lifting.....so didn't even want to.
    Gets better Bro;....so hang in there, I still can feel your pain.
    copy that on the little red pillow, still keep it by the bed. also moved the 12GA shotgun out as my primary house gun and replaced it with a ruger 10-22, don't think I can handle the recoil just yet, hang loose brother

    That little pillow helped me give up smoking....I did not want to cough...at all.......that was a Big help.....so far still not smoking.

    Now after a week I did get a call form my cardiologist....on Friday(?)....waiting on records(?) WTH?
    The therapy people called ....as if they knew more that the Doc(?)....
    Is the same group I go to 3 times a week anyway....but I would suppose, they have a different routine and monitoring.

    So we are packed up, gonna head back to the Big City in the morning......and I am/will be shutting down everything as if for the winter....Just in case.
    Did make it down the hill to the shed...unplugged refrigerator, and propped open drained water catchment system...locked up everything....

    Notice my little cut thru road from The Place to Unit 2 washed out some....must have had a heck of a lot of water roaring thru...Didn't get any pictures.

    So in the morning, drain water, shut off gas porch lights, porch refrig. unplugged, load up canned goods...and head back.

    Thanks again to every one for the concern and good wishes.

    Just saw all this Hunter! Glad you are okay and bouncing back. Heart stuff (any medical stuff) is complicated and there is never an absolute answer to anything. They look at the signs, symptoms, and numbers then make an educated guess. That is why they call it "practicing" medicine. Just glad the grave didn't claim you.

    Yup....Thanks....that's the plan for now....unfortunately....

    I have to add, that at this point.....I am frustrated by not being able to do certain things......or if I try to do something.....DW gives me that "stink eye"....like you know better.

    I have never been good at sitting still.....like to stay on top of things....be it yard work, maintenance, hunting projects and "fun stuff".
    Don't get me wrong...like my naps....but stuff bothers me when I can't do them....

    And I had just started rally getting back to normal form before the by-pass.....Oh, Well.
