Gardennut(z9Ca)January 9, 2007

I just want everyone to know that Gerry_Wyoming (NepaGardenGuy) is going in for Open heart surgery tomorrow. (1-10-07) Please say your prayers for him. I was told that he is going to have quaddruple bypass. I spoke with his friend today as I have been very close to

Gerry. He (Rick) wanted me to post this for him as he doesn't do gardening. lol So please keep Gerry in your thoughts and prayers as I will also do the same. He is a super guy.

Thanks, Norma

P.S. Any emails will cheer him up when he gets home.

This is not good news. Gerry my thoughts and prayers are with you. I didn't know you weren't well. Please feel better and wishing you a speedy recovery.

Addicted, me...lol

I knew about Norma making a post so I thought after all that time in the hospital I would have a little fun and check it out. I can only sit here for short periods at a time, the chair is most uncomfortable, so I figured a HI, I am back....would be OK.

OK....details...Started having some chest pains at work on Sunday the 7th, some of the worst things I had ever felt before, but not like the proverbial elephant on your chest. Rich was out on vacation and had dropped me off at work so I called him to come get me and take me to the E.R. Spent that night, was supposed to have a stress test on Monday, that got put off and cancelled when I had the same pains again on Monday night. Went in for Catherization on Tuesday...5 blockages 3 of them at 90%, Gee... I guess that is why I had the surgery on Wednesday

All went well, now I just need to recouperate, and let me tell you it is not the chest incision that is the worst right now, but rather the leg where they took the grafts. Swollen about 3x normal size and sore.

OK, gonna go, I think the pain pill is kicking in

Gerry,

Sounds very serious. Glad they were able to fix the plumbing before it got any worse.

Honey Perfume is getting ready to sport it's first bud, I will post a picture when it does. :-)

Sending a HUG!

Hi Gerry,
I spend most of my time on the Antique Rose forum so maybe you don't know me, but I figure even a relative stranger's good wishes count for something, and you have mine. Hope you're making a good recovery. Congratulations on getting to the hospital in time! There IS something to be said for modern technology, isn't there?

Melissa,

I agree, good wishes count no matter where they come from, thank you!

Maureen,

Not sure what is going on yet with some of them, but I guess I shall know soon. Most of them never made it outside, so the indoor method will be tested, good thing they are cuttings, just a bit more expendable than plants....shhhh....don't tell ANYONE I said that.
