Denny's Updates

Long time since I blogged. I guess I need to supply an update. By reading the update, you might understand why I haven't blogged in a l-o-n-g time.

 

As you might remember, I was hit by my pickup, last November 2009. I suffered 5 cracked ribs, and recovery took about 7 months, until I healed. Because of that accident, I was dianosed with Atrial Fibrillation, and I had a cardioversion on Feburary 5, 2010.

 

End of December 2009, I was in hospital for Dehydrated Kidneys, which I found out was kidney failure. Because I was on Coumadin, for the atrial fibrillation, I developed rectal bleeding. This went on for several months - a lot better now and off coumadin. But, that's enough medical history.

 

On October 2, 2010, I participated in our local American Heart Walk, raising a total amount of $1,565.00. I volunteer once a week, at a local Rescue Mission. Three weeks ago, I helped with a Ladies Christmas Tea. I 'served' coffee and keep the teapots full of hot water.

 

This past Saturday, I made the menu and cooked for 55 men, at my church's Men's Ministry Breakfast. We had 'fresh' scrambled eggs, sausage patties, hash brown potatoes, orange juice, coffee and pastries.

 

This morning, November 24, I had cataract surgery on my right eye.

 

Total time was about 3 hours -- from arrival time, to surgery, to recovery and then being released.As I'm typing, I sitting here, only able to see with one eye (eye patch on right eye).

 

Other than these few details, I'm fine.

Hey Denny, you certainly went through the medical woes. I did wonder what had happened to you my friend.

 

I'm wishing you a speedy recovery and plenty of good times ahead to make up for what you have been going through.

 

Sue.
