    Talking Donna bugged me to tell you!

    LMBO!!!!! Yes, I was on a looooooong, but awesome phone conversation with Donna cause she was worried about little ol me...So sweet of you hun!!!! and let me tell all of you, she has a huge heart filled with gold...<wink> Thanks for keeping tabs on me...Sure means a lot...
    I have also received numerous emails, cards, and other phone calls as well...
    I am ok...when I went to see the surgeon...Ummm...welll...Not much new news to tell...

    The surgery didn’t go the greatest…Once they injected the dye…the found that the Illiac Artery (the one they were going to put a stint in or do Angeo on) was actually ok…Then when they took the AngioGram of the legs (more pictures of the arteries), they found that in both legs, from the groin aertery to the knee were severely clogged….The Radiologist decided to leave it up to the Vascular Surgeon to decide what to do about it…I healed ok from the surgery…and am doing well…I went back to the hospital to see the Surgeon last Thursday, and basically he gave me two options…to have the bypasses done but that could cause me to lose my legs sooner once the bypasses collapsed…Or to hold off, deal with the pain, walk more to build new blood vessels and wait out the surgery until I absolutely need it….which would prolong the amputations…so of course I decided on the latter…I have dealt with it this long, right? Plus, I am getting my dad to walk with me everyday, he needs it too since he has the same issues as I do, just not as bad…Works for both of us…I won’t be able to walk long distances, but even 10 minutes would help…and I am taking my big dog with me too…he could use it...
    SO basically me new motto is: Just keep walking...lol...
    Thanks again everyone...I love you all...((HUGS))

    I like to listen to audiobooks on my MP3 player but dont' get the spooky ones! Makes you keep looking around and behind all the trees as you're walking. LOL! I think you made the right choice, too! Hope the walking helps.

    Ooh, I agree with everyone that you made the right choice. I would hold off too. Keep on walking and doing what ever you can to get that blood flowing! Wish I was there to walk with you, I need to walk too!

    I was in tears today, but guess what, I walked 4 blocks today!!!!! I am so happy about this...Sure the pain is there, but I think it always will be...So the further I can walk, with the pain, must be an improvement, right?
    Bad news is, the Neuropathy is affecting my left hand and fingers now...Sometimes it is hard to type oor pick up something...This is something I will adjust too...Keep the prayers coming...Thanks bunches and love all the support I get from all of you...many ((HUGS))
