About Me: Female, 68, Lake Jackson, TX, member since Jul 2007
Have had 3 heart attacks since July '04. Have CAD and 3 stents in Right Coronary Artery. Recently diagnosed with severe svts and started on
antiarrythmic drug. I have 4
[More] children, raising 1 foster son and 2 granddaughters.
I love coming in here to see how others deal with their disease and help those I can by experience. It's a comfort.

Just a quick note to say hi!
I trust all is well with you. I've recovered well from my bypass, it was was a wonderful decision to procede with it. I have no angina, wonderful energy, it was a complete success. I have no more angina, and recovery has been a breeze.
Using a happy face note because. . . . . Flycaster got through surgery just fine, no complications. They were able to fix things the way they wanted. He had to get up and walk this morning (ouch!) and will go home on Monday. Poor guy will have to sit around and take it easy for awhile and I know that will bother him. He loves to be on the go but his delightful wife will take care of that. She's a real sweetheart. Enjoy the day.
Just a quick note to say hi! Just wanted you to know I spoke with FlyCaster's wife. He's still in surgery but so far everything is going well. Probably another 2-3 hours before they're done. Keep praying.
