    Staying the Course -- June 9, 2020

    Hello all! Enjoying your posts. Sorry about your son, Anne. Two of my daughter’s children are dealing with depression brought on in part by their mom’s alcoholism and all the chaos that entails. My grandson age 20 moved in with me two weeks ago to get away from it all. My 12 yo granddaughter...

    I went for a cleaning exactly two weeks ago. I’d had the appointment for six months and my dentist had just reopened. I thought seriously about canceling then decided, as Paleowoman wrote, that I was more of a danger to the staff than they were to me. My temperature was taken, They gave me a...

    Staying the Course -- April 28, 2020

    Texas has begun a reopen process with malls, restaurants, and movie theaters allowed to open at 25% capacity. How that will be monitored I have no idea. Imagine traveling to a mall or theater only to be told they’d reached their capacity and you can’t go in. Tonight’s news reports will tell how...

    I’m checking in SB! I read the storms killed 33 people. And there are now people without homes in which to shelter in place. I just count my blessings each days and say prayers of gratitude that my little world is OK. I’ve been able to work from home and draw a paycheck. So far my flight...

    I just read two articles in two minutes about COVID19 patients near death on ventilators being successfully treated with EMCO heart-lung machines (one article called EMCO a procedure, the other called it a machine). Is this what was used for our OHS? (Sorry I can’t post links to the articles on...

    Doing good in Houston. I’m blessed to be able to work from home. Being an introvert I’m ok with self isolation. Got my three dogs here and they are suitable company.

    72 year old surgeon

    I don’t think you’re being silly. My surgeon had a world renowned reputation established over 30 years or more. When he spoke with my children after surgery he reported incorrectly on my procedure. I forget exactly what he misspoke but I was a bit put off by it. He’s a busy guy but that little...

    Most likely going with a mechanical .

    I had a 70% blockage in one of mine. The only problem I had afterward was swelling in the calf from which the vein was taken for the bypass. one of the things I did to psyche myself before surgery was to tell myself repeatedly that many people would trade places with me in a heartbeat. I...

    I can't get life insurance anymore after my surgery. Suggestions.

    I’m not familiar with direct cremation. I will check it out. I think the quote I got was based on one night of visitation. I’m not certain but I think my children would want that. my husband and I had talked about death after we met even though we expected to grow old together (he was 49)...

    Most likely going with a mechanical .

    I went at six months, one year, and annually since then. Each visit takes no more than a few hours. I get an RKG, echo, and blood work through the surgeon’s office and it’s paid for by the study. I see my cardio separately at my expense.

    I can't get life insurance anymore after my surgery. Suggestions.

    It cost me almost $30k for my husbands two funeral services 19 years ago this coming January 11. One in Houston where we lived and a second in Detroit where he was from. It was a sudden death so my decisions were emotional, not logical. I checked into cremation her a few years ago and even that...
