Cut to the chase...COPD, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Farrow Wraps.......then
November and Congestive Heart Failure....I gained 40 pounds in 4 months, all fluid, all in my lungs and around my heart. Mr. Ruffin put me in the hospital on the 12th of November and busted me out 16th. We had our 30th wedding anniversary on the 13th in the hospital....
I'm so much my age, 58 on the 8th. I told a young nurse in the hospital that I had been ridden long and hung up wet too many times and she had no idea what I was talking about. Youth is so wasted on the young.
I've lost the 40 pounds in a matter of one week thanks to diuretics by IV and an overhauled low, low, low sodium diet. I have a long way to go, many mountains to climb, but God is with me, and of course Jim and Clif. Jim refuses to let go, he has a new workout schedule for me.
Cut to the chase....I'm getting better again.
Thank you to those who prayed for my sorry ass...and my grateful soul.
