Thank you to two special people!

Hello MM forum

I wasn't able to spend time here for a few weeks, and I want to thank two very special people who helped me out and made sure that everyone who posted got a cheery response and the help they needed. So thank you, Rick and Kay, from the bottom of my heart! I knew I could count on you guys

Didn't mean to disappear on all you all, but I ended up in the hospital, 450 miles from home, with the worst case of bronchitis I've ever had. Since I couldn't catch my breath, they ran some standard heart tests on me and found an aneurysm that was a complete surprise to me. It had no relationship to the bronchitis, other than that's what led them to find it. So how blessed am I? Who would ever think that getting sick far from home would be a good thing?

Missed you all, and I'm glad to be back at "work" here!

Wow, Cyndi, so glad you're back amongst the living! An aneurysm! Those are not that common in women and usually have zero symptoms. How big?

Definitely the happy accident of the year. Glad they were able to detect and deal with the aneurysm before it became a serious or life threatening problem. We're happy to have you here and back in the pink!

Re: Thank you to two special people!

Thank you guys Kay, it's just a baby aneurysm at this point, and since I'm generally disgustingly healthy, it's unlikely it would have been found any other way than by "accident" like this. Rick, I'm glad to be back too, but I'm not quite in the pink yet...still struggling a bit with breathing, but it is soooo much better. Next week stress test, then the following week, off to the cardiologist. Yay for early detection!

Re: Thank you to two special people!

Awwww...thank you guys! I guess I didn't realize just how wiped out I've been. Next week I've got a follow-up with my cardiologist, and I'll prolly find out then if we're gonna need to schedule surgery. I'm betting on "NOT"

Re: Thank you to two special people!

Thank you all I got the all-clear from my cardiologist yesterday. No surgery, just occasional monitoring. She says the breathing issues are most likely left over from the bronchitis that put me in the hospital in the first place. I've never had it take this long to fully heal, but then...I am getting older It just pisses me off since I used to run marathons and now I can't even run around the block!
