Looking forward

It's been two and a half weeks since Pally joined me in taking care of my heart.  Our plan was for Roy to pamper me (guy style) and for me to enjoy it and focus on getting better.  Unfortunately it didn't work out that way.

I was recovering from serious (but not difficult) surgery while at the same time Roy was suffering the cold to end all colds.  I now know what he'll look like if he lives to be 100 - terrible.  We managed pretty well, but I think I needed less nursing than he did.

When we could finally take a road trip, we went to the
 casino/outlet mall.  It felt so good to be away from the house.
Roy's cold prevented him from holding my hand before and after surgery.  I missed that, but we both agreed that he was much too contagious to be visiting the hospital.  He never went inside.  I signed myself in, and he was waiting at the curb when they wheeled me out to go home.  Not what we had planned at all.

So now we're both better.  I'm still not allowed to drive, square dance, or go to Curves, but that day is coming.

I'm seeing the doctor almost weekly so the tech can fine tune Pally.  It makes me laugh when he says "I think I'll raise your heart beat a little," and he does it.

More next time.



  1. Oh, gees, you two are a team! I hope Roy is better and you are too!

    Can you notice a difference in how you feel with your new device?

  2. We are both much better. We're even doing a little catch-up work on the place. I feel much better, but I still tire easily. I think I just have to give it time. I am so impatient.

  3. Wow, what a transition! And timing for his cold was less than stellar... he should really work on that.

    I hope you are feeling way cool very soon!

  4. Shakespeare, I'm doing OK. Thanks for coming.

  5. I'm glad you felt well enough to get out of the house! It's hard to believe it's been 3-1/2 weeks already!
    Love, Cindy


I'd love to hear from you.
