This is a quick note to let you know I have been discharged from the hospital and am now back in my motor home, enjoying life once again.
My thanks to all the people who took the time to write notes of best wishes and to offer suggestions. It is heartwarming to read all the messages. I can't possibly answer each one individually but I have read each one and I certainly appreciate the kind thoughts.
The doctors have assured me that the chest pains were minor and are not an indication of heart problems. In short, I was told to not worry about it. Once the incision from Tuesday's surgery heals, I am to go on with my life the same as before.
However, the doctors also suggested I take things easy for a few days until that incision heals: no lifting, don't get too tired, and things like that. Since I am living in an RV campground in Florida at the moment, I find it easy to comply with those suggestions!
I plan to take a couple of days off from the newsletter, then will start in again slowly. I'll probably be back to full speed within a week or so.
By the way, one of the doctors who treated me is a genealogist who reads this newsletter! Meeting him was a double pleasure.
Thanks again to everyone who wrote.
