    Re: Myectomy Canceled

    Great news on the surgery. I loved the cheesecake at the deli and the corn chowder at the bakery. That was one of the few things I felt like eating after my surgery.

    Good luck and keep us posted.

    Re: Myectomy Canceled

    Hi All,

    Looks like everything's a go for tomorrow. Woo hoo!

    I'll be reporting in at the hospital at 5:00 am, so the 'results' should be in pretty early in the day. I know Cousin Laura will do a good job letting you all know what's going on. I'm still not very nervous at all... but i'm sure it will hit me as they're wheeling me into the operating room screaming my bloody head off! LoL. Actually, i think i'm just so excited about having the surgery, i may end up keeping my cool throughout

    Lisa, i left the phone number for the guesthouse with Kelly, so if ya wanna call and chat tonight (or anyone else for that matter) i'm in room 307. I can pretty much guarantee you i won't be sleeping at all. But hey, i have all day tomorrow to do that, right? I have the easy job here... all i have to do is lay on a table, fall asleep, and a couple seconds later (for me at least) it'll all be over.

    Just think, by tomorrow night at this time i may already be out of ICU and on the road to recovery!

    Thanks to everyone, you've all been great.

    Jim

    Re: Myectomy Canceled

    Jim, Will be thinking about you tomorrow; and hope all goes well. The team at The Cleveland Clinic is a great one. My myectomy was in Aug of 2000. Have had some ups and downs (like every HCM'er) along the road to recovery; but going strong, after finding what things I could push and things I couldn't.

    Just keep thing "cheesecake" and I'll get the message! Take care and keep us posted.

    Jim,

    all best wishes and good thoughts for you for your rescheduled myectomy. You're in great care there and we'll all be anxious to hear from you once you're feeling better. Now enjoy today and try to get over to Little Italy for a great pizza at Mama Santos or at least a doughnut at Presti's!

    Jim-

    Go ahead 7 treat yourself to another slice of cheesecake on Saturday-trust me, you aren't going to be hungry for awhile! Not to mention the "healthful" benefits of eating cheesecake (which they may mention to you at Cleveland - @ Mayo I sat thru a Nutrition class)
    Be good to yourself this weekend, so you are all relaxed & in a Great state of mind for Monday.
    I know how you are feeling & I know what you are facing. I'll be Praying for you
    BE WELL

    Hahahahaha. Glen, you are a card. The only affairs I have like that any more is just sitting around trying to remember.

    About all my ailments Ė I just listed the ones that were bugging me now. I checked my list and currently there are fourteen diagnoses posted, and I know I missed a couple here and there. If they donít make themselves known, I forget about them. They just get lost in the shuffle.

    Take care. Iím looking forward to meeting you in August. Weíll all have some fun.

    Jim,

    I have been off the boards for several days due to too many things to do, so just found out what happened there in Cleveland. I will be praying that you will be much lighter after Monday having lost all the fluid and a big chunk of heart as well.

    Re: Myectomy Canceled

    Hi Jim,
    Iím heading to LA tomorrow for an affair on Saturday. Iíll be staying with my daughter and son-in-law and the twins, so I may get a chance to get on the boards Sunday. Iíll be driving back home on Monday after lunch with a good friend.

    Donít know for sure if, or how much, Iíll be able to get to a computer, so let me wish you good luck now. I really hope everything goes as smooth as that cheese cake you had. (Ye Gads, I havenít had cheesecake since 1985. The best was at Lindyís at Times Square.)

    Whatever happens, Iíll be pulling for you.
    Burt
