Daddy's Ok!! Thanks Ya'll :)

Hey Ya'll,

We finally heard that my Dad's procedure is done and he is doing great!  I'm not sure why the Procedure took so long, but at least it is done.  And it appears that he will not need the full on Bypass Surgery again.  :)  However, I found out that (and I am not sure if I am saying this correctly, as we got this information second, second hand), but we were told that the Valve was leaking fluid into the Heart, instead of out of the Heart.  So I am interpreting (guessing really) that one of the Valves is not closing properly, and is allowing fluid to enter back into the Heart.  For all of you out there that is in the Medical field, or has some experience in this, does this make sense to you??? 

But other than that, he appears to be doing great.  He said that he is able to breath again, and feels much better already.  So I am guessing that this was a godsend that he only had a "Minor" Heart Attack, instead of another "Major" one, or another Stroke!!!  And he should be released in a couple of days!  So I want to send a huge thank you, to all of you that read my blog, and have kept him in your thoughts and prayers.  I may not be a religious person, but I do believe in a Higher Being.  And every good thought counts.  And I know that we can always count on our fellow blogger s to be here for each other!!!

As for our day today, well, I haven't been "stuck" since yesterday, so I am guessing that the stress definitely played a huge part in my sudden tightness!  Today we went into the Nevada DMV, and we were impressed at how quickly we were processed.  We were only in there for about 2 hours total, and that was for both of us, and that included the time for Walt to take his written test!!  At our local DMV in California, it would have taken at least half the day!!

So I now have a temporary Nevada DL, as does Walt, but he still has to take a Driving Skill test to complete his DL, as he has to have a J Endorsement for his DL, to be able to tow an RV over 10,000 lbs, and ours is about 24,000-25,000 lbs!!  We also now have a Permanent Address for Nevada, a Storage Bldg space for what we don't want to get rid of right away, but can't fit in our RV, and the space that we want already on hold for us at the RV Resort.  So we feel like we got a lot accomplished today!!  So now we will be driving home tomorrow.

So again, I would like to thank all of you for your thoughts and response to my question regarding my sudden tightness!!  Till next time.....

Aloha My Friends  :)
