Cody, Know you are in the thoughts and prayers of your bus family!

It's good to know that doctors can repair the blockage.

Get well soon and we pray for a speedy recovery.

Just talked to Libby on PalTalk and she said Cody's doing well. Said he was sitting up & giving the nurses a hard time. (good to see he's the same old Cody in spirt! LOL!) Anyway he's in the Hospital in Marquette, MI. She just left to go spend the day with him. She said he's still in ICU, but they are hoping to change that today! She's gonna let me know this afternoon if he's been moved and when he can get calls. I'll post more when I get it! I hear he's very determined to make it to the M.A.C.C. Rally, but theres no way he'll be able to drive. But he will have a chaufer if he's able to go! If I have to I'll juggle the schedule around and go drive him myself, if the DR & Libby clear him to go! I will get more info & post it soon. Libby is very thankful of all of you, and said she knows Cody is too!  Grin  BK   Grin

After he gets done recuperating, he will probably feel like making twice as much sawdust.  LOL  Glad to hear he is on the road to recovery.  Jack

Guys, libby snuck the laptop into here for me, I appreceate all the well wishes. I might be up graded from intensive care to the cardiac unit later today.  The doctor said that my heart attack was major and there is lots of damage, he said its too soon to really know how much damage and the next couple of days will tell if the ventricle will hold together. The artery was 100% blocked,but has been opened and a stent is in place. All we're doing right now is waiting to see if the old beater can withstand the blow it took, so right now, I'm drinking decaf, watching infomercials on some really great stuff that they tell me I can't live without, the vampire comes in every hour and a half for a half gallon of blood and in a few days they'll annouce I'm anemic, go figyre huh< they drain you, then medicate you.  thats about all I know for now. cody

Cody,

They will have you skipping down the halls in a matter of a day or so.
Just remember that the fastest way to call a nurse is unplug a lead
on your monitor. Eventually they will double tape the leads on.. Ouch!

Glad they could unplug stuff with a catheter and stent, Mine took major
replumbing in 1996 and later in 2005 an ICD/Defibrilator which recently I am told saved my life when I started circling the drain in May...It was a shocking experience....

Get well and watch out for the head nurse.. Those ICU/CCU nurses can be
a pain in all parts at times. Oh Yeah, Note: They will wake you up to give you
a sleeping pill... Never fails...

Dave....

WOW, my cardiac nurses were really sweethearts. One even stayed an hour or so late after her regular quitting time to sit with me and keep a close check. I ended up sending a basket of flowers to them they had been so nice.

I had an angioplasty first then a couple of weeks later open heart with three bypasses back in 95. I had to go in a couple of years ago and have three stints put in but everything seems to be working fine now. Now it seems like I have lost about half of my lungs so I really can not do much of anything now that I have to exert any energy.

Great news folks just talked to grumpy (opps I mean medicated Cody), he has be upgraded and is out of ICU and been moved up to the Cardiac Care Unit. He's tired and medicated (highly, very many pills I think he said 14 after bfast 12 after lunch & 14 after supper which really a bunch for someone who never does pills!) 1crazytom told him he was gonna rename him grumpy eagle! LOL! We are very lucky he's still with us, they lost him twice and he say's he's got the paddle burns to prove it! We'll update as we know more! If ya want ta send cards or get well wishes he's at Marquette General Hospital, in Marquette, MI I believe he said he was moved up to the 7th floor. He didn't say what his room # was. His real name is Dan Clishe. And Libby just PM'd me and said, he's in room 704! If all goes well he'll get to come home Tuesday! That's what I have so far! Grin  BK  Grin
