VAM of the Week! Sorry!

Post by bob259 » Tue May 12, 2020 8:26 pm

I have missed a number of weeks at getting a VAM of the Week up BUT I have a good excuse. Had an operation on November 7th and as I was recovering from that I had a massive heart attack. Was in the hospital for 16 days over Christmas while they buzz sawed me open and did multiple bypasses. I'm okay now and getting stronger everyday. I'm very lucky to be alive and it was not a fun time. Anyway it probably would be good to pull my name off the list for Vam of the week contributors for now.

sorry i just read this for the first time today. glad you are still with us and on the mend. on the one hand, it's a bad time to be in recovery, and yet it is the best time too. eat as healthful as possible, and take time to smell the roses like never before.

Thanks for all the comforting comments. I sometimes wonder why some people just flop over and die whereas people like myself live on. Trust me it was violent and damaged the heart. I probably should have died. Doc says with exercise the heart will get back a lot of what it lost. I am thankful to be alive and I guess the good Lord just didn't want me yet. Must still have something he wants me to do.

I'm guessing there's a VAM of the year discovery on your horizon ( and I'm sure more) ;)
glad to hear you're on the mend.... :)
