Thanks for all the care

tdogdad(Zone 9)June 20, 2012

Thanks for all the calls and notes regarding my minor heart surgery tomorrow. I am not one for medical events and your concerns eased my nerves. Hope to be happily resting amongst my (hope they will open) blooms next week. I can't think of a better way to repair than in the scent of tropical blossoms. And Laura- you are a gem. Bill

All I can say is I wish you the best. Your such an awesome guy and I(along with so many others here)owe much of my plumeria success to you.

Hoping you fell better. I will say a prayer for you, and I wish you nothing but the best for tomorrow!

I am sure you will have loads of awesome blooms to enjoy during your recovery. Time for you to enjoy the fruits....(wait, wait) I mean INFLOS OF YOUR LABOR!

Take care, and if you can....I think it would be great if you knew someone who could keep us all updated.

Prayers for you Bill! Minor surgery is surgery on someone else, but these things are pretty routine these days. I'm sure you will go through all well!

I am back. Modern medicine is something else. One day they are inside your heart burning spots that are acting up and the next day you are home walking in your garden. I can't work or lift heavy things for a week but I can be fully active in the surf in two weeks. Of course, last night was no sleep at all but today I feel really good. Thanks to all my fellow addicts- may we all have grand inflos in life. Bill

It's truly awesome to see you back here Bill. I agree. Modern medicine is awesome! Had that first back surgery..had 2o+ staples in my abdomen and they released me the very next day to go home. I was up and moving that same day.

Thanks for letting us know your feeling ok....and thanks to you Laura for passing the message along!

Ellen- some vitamin company hijacked my account and is sending out ads. I sent you a reply to your e-mail.
James- you are too funny. A vegan healthy meal coming from a guy who brought me 8 of the most high calorie, decadent cup cakes from King's bakery. You are prohibited from any further gestures of friendship over 1000 calories. LOL. Thanks- I greatly value your friendship ans so enjoy yakking plumie stories with you.
