You really want to know ?
Posted by Tanker - Builder on Sunday, February 26, 2017 6:30 AM

Hi , Gang .

        Well , Good news from here .The cardiac therapist cut me loose . Said I was still a week ahead of anyone else he's worked with my age for a while . What I've been doing is simple , I let the body call the shots . If it says Sleep ! Then I sleep .

     I do know that being only on o.c. pain meds has helped a lot . But I did Bump the bruise where the drain was .Ow ! That knocked me down quick .Fergot my little heart shaped pillow thingy .

 Now , Am reading up on stuff I may have missed . I still am a little shaky , but made a hard decision . No more super large scale A/C - No Room ! The ships are getting pared down along with the cars too .

 I still don't have but about 16 Armor pieces so they stay . I am determined to learn to post pictures  , and WIPs . So Sleepin better and loving being back . Can you say Kick in the Rear ? That's what this did to my EGO . Hmmm I walked the other day and had the therapist huffing . Stopped , Really , to smell my neighbor's new roses too . Niiiice !

      Thank You all for your support and kindness . See , This is what I keep telling folks , Be nice , It goes further .  Thanks Again T.B.

Tanker Builder, welcome back!  I'm so glad you've recovered.  I know personally that the road to recovery is listening to your body and moving forward.  You've got the right attitude!  Keep up the good work and I'll be keeping an eye out from a build of yours!!!

Glad to hear you are doing so well! Yes, please post armor WIP. Sounds like you are well onto the road to full recovery, maybe even better than recovery if you keep listening to your body. Cheers! Dman

Very happy to hear that you are recovering well, TB. I'll bet that positive attitude of yours goes a long way to putting you ahead of others, as your doc mentioned.

Keep that pillow handy. It is the best deal in town for the temporary soreness.

Thanks for keeping us informed.

And if you did take the time to learn to post pics, I'll bet it would enhance your online fun. It would ours, being able to see what you are up to.

Hi , Gang .

 Now , Am reading up on stuff I may have missed . I still am a little shaky , but made a hard decision . No more super large scale A/C - No Room ! The ships are getting pared down along with the cars too .

 

 

I made a similar decision wit the large aircraft, unless I have a recipient to donate it to.

For ships I vowed to move to 1:700 scale, though currently working on a 1:350.  It is a RN monitor, however, so about same size as 1:700 battleship.

Good to hear you are doing well....  I only had stents put in (3), but the wifemate had a triple bypass and aortic valve replacement, so I know the recovery process is a slow one.  That pillow is a handy thing, and the best friend at times. 

You will get the pic thing down, any of us will be willing to help.

Glad to hear the good news TB. I've still got the pillow AND the 2 stuffed Teddy Bears that they gave me when the Kidneys were removed. They were good to have around.

I had an aortic valve replacement and triple bypass almost 10 years ago.  I remember the recovery from weakness was very long, but not much pain.  About 2 months after, I felt like a new man with renewed energy, as the doc promised.  Most of the detailed memories have faded away, and that's fine.  I have a big red heart shaped pillow autographed by some of the nurses, too!

Take heart, TB!  You'll be feeling really fine in a couple of months and I'm glad to hear you're OK!
