Killing a mound of fire ants always makes me feel better. I know it doesn't do a lot of good for the long haul, but I still feel better.
:D :D

I was thinking about you this weekend. Have you ever tried algerita tea? It is supposed to work wonders for such things. That is what the old timers used to say anyway.

bb, you sure are having the run with illness, aren't you. I hate that for you. Think of how much more you will value your health once you get it back. I know I did.

I have a digestive disorder that forced me to change my diet pretty drastically. I have also had heart trouble that made me really examine the foods I ate. I've made some changes. It isn't that bad. You find new favorites. You might have to change the diet a little if you doctor says. You only got one heart. It scared snot outa me.

I hope you get back on your feet soon. You have to get well. You have a new addition to your family coming and I know you are the favorite uncle.

Sorry to hear about your friend, but it sounds like he had a good long life. Just remember all the good times you had!!

Hang in there and do what the doctor says as that is why he is a doctor. You will find it hard to do all the things he wants you to do but it will only benefit you in the long run. Hang in there!

That's always the hardest part.. not being able to do the things you've done every day of your life! But do as the doctor says, and take it easy, and you'll be back! Maybe sooner than you'd like! You never know.. maybe you'll get hooked on one of them soap opera things!

You are not going to be like your dad you are going to make changes in your diet and lifestyle..Heart damage is reparable and it sounds like you are full of gumption and can definalty make the necessary changes to your life to live a long long time..Follow doctors orders until they have your ticker in tip top shape..If they say rest and do not exert yourself then that is what you do..

Feel better BB and hope the doctors get you going in the right direction.. :heart:
