  • Long Winter

    As you may already know its been very cold for a long time here in New England. It makes it hard to cope with the disease process.I,m becomming more symptomatic again, but the good news is I,m going to see my freinds at N.E.M.C. on Feb. 3rd. Hope they have some new treatment for me. You may recall I had surgery last April, the Doctors determined I should have my mitrel valve replaced. After the healing process I was feeling almost little or no chest paine. I,ve always been very short of breath and easily fatigued.This I,ve learned to live with but the chest pain is very difficult to ignore.I,m hoping for some help on tuesday.I,ll try to you all posted.

          What a day to go to NEMC. Today is the Pats Championship parade. When they won the Bowl 2 years ago there was 1.2 million people there... they are expecting more this year. Hopefully Dennis was able to get to his appointment on time....
