    Folks, i have been in recovery from a quintuple bypass on 8/2/18. I suffered a heart attack at least a few days before going in to the hospital, and if i had delayed going in for 4 more days I would not have survived according to the surgeon. I'm recovering well, and getting better every day. I'll keep you all posted.

    I'm getting better every day. I'm going back into the hospital late December for a scan of my heart to determine if there is permanent damage. Looking forward to getting strong enough to do things again. I had to hire a lawn service after a few mows with my wife helping me out. The reason for this is my blood sugar drops dangerously low when I am active some times. We are attending some diabetic learning classes this week to personalize recipes for me. Anyway, things are looking better, and we are Grandparents since September 22. Morgan Nicole is her name, she is perfect, healthy, and very spirited. I really need to get my self in better health, and help her grow up.

    Well folks, I'm getting worse, not better lately. I had a setback that started on 10/4. My blood sugar crashed under 40 points, and since then it's been rough. I have congestive heart failure, and have had my Doctors chasing symptoms since. My meds have been changed, increased, decreased, etc. I started a new medication today, and so far no bad reactions. My Dr. says no hunting until we get this under control, and I start back in cardiac rehab. I'll know more in two weeks about long term issues. Right now, I'm home bound pretty much.
