    I could use some of that Foo Energy!!

    I am in the hospital. I had an. Atrial fibrillation Event. I'm posting from the cardiac care unit right now. Happily this condition is very rarely fatal. It does cause strokes though.

    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    Tom, heal well and soon.

    Mr Stormcrowe, take your time and get better.
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Get better soon! We have people asking about mausoleums and you do not want to get close to that conversation.

    Well,looking better on my end or no change!

    1) Surgery very unlikely......the adhesion appears to be resolving itself. this also means the blockage is breaking up.

    2) A-Fib and BP are still a factor, but resolvable through meds adjustment.

    Glad to hear you should be getting better without further complication. I do believe that Rltot is correct, you need to mend up and get back in the water.

    ........as soon as I heard you were in the hospital, I baked you a get well cake.



    Then I remembered they would not let you eat it in there, so rather than waste it, I ate it.
    I wish you would stop doing this illness stuff, because I'm starting to notice some weight gain.

    My A-Fib type is not a good candidate for ablation. It's due to an abnormality in the S-A Node (Primary rhythm control nerve group for the heart). p(.02) of a successful outcome, so no, I won't be doing ablation. Risk grossly outweighs the reward, in this case.
