I will be away for about 4 to 6 weeks!

I wanted to let you guys know about some news from my end. I have been teaching since January and that is why I have not been on the blog much...just ran out of time. But this time I will again be away but for a different reason. I am having open heart surgery on Thursday may 7th.... valve replacement. I had no symptoms but passed out while doing some work and stopped breathing. Basically, Zach, my son, saved my life. Sort of freaked me out! So this Thursday I will be going under the knife and recovery time is quite prolonged so as soon as I am able I will be back on the blog. Don't think I have skipped out on you! I will be thinking of all of you and have a great Spring/Summer. Dan

Good luck dear Dan, I hope it all goes well for you.
I have had open heart surgery, you will be alright and will feel much better afterwards. The recovery and its limitations is a pain but just be patient and take it easy.

Oh Dan, sorry to hear this but thanks for letting us know. I'll be thinking of you, hoping all goes well and wishing you speedy recovery and time to take things easy while you heal.

WIshing you the best with your surgery and recovery. Passing out was a blessing in disguise, really, so you could find out something was wrong. My sister had the same operation a few years ago, and she is stronger for it.

Jean!!! It is great to hear from ou and thanks for thinking of me! Yes I am on the way to a full recovery. Not there yet but will be by early to mid August...but the worst is definitely behind me. I am certainly gald this issue is behind me. I have to admit that the anticipation was worse than the event itself!

Wait. Sort of freaked you out??? I'm not sure how I missed this (except I've not been on the blog lately), but I'm happy to know that you are back!
A great time to recover, summer. As long as you don't need to run to the shelter.
