Well a great big hello to all my friends and nighbors.
It’s been a while since I wrote items so I hardly know where to start.
To start I had to go to my carodiologist in July and August, so he told me about this device they could implant to see if it will help my heart function rather than a transplant at this time so on September 13th I went to the hospital to what I thought was an overnight stay and I come out the night of the 21st. I got the implants on my birthday. It’s a CRT-D Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy device. It has three wires or they call it leads going into my heart. Recovery has been slow, but I’m doing better. I’m back working on my quilts. The implant doctor was super. Ken and Randy both met him. Ken and Wendy was there with me during surgery.
Well that’s enough about me, but I’ve had so many people ask if I had stopped writing items.
I really don’t have any news. Delmas came by a couple of weeks ago and took me to the chili supper at Wasola Fire Dept. We saw several people we hadn’t seem for a while. And the food is always good.
Delmas and a group of guys have gone to Colorado elk hunting. Jim is from New York. He came with Delmas to bring me some apples and grapes. I made them an apple cake and some more goodies to take with them on their hunting trip.
I couldn’t ask for a better sister than Audean. She came up here and washed my hair and rolled it when I came home from the hospital. I couldn’t raise my left arm for 4-6 weeks after surgery. So another week or so I’ll be there.
Roger has been busy-busy. I don’t see him very long at a time, but he comes in to check on me. We did watch boxing on television Saturday night.
We had good services at Frye Church this morning. Bro. Gaither’s great grandson was our speaker. He did a really good job. He had his little family here from Nebraska visiting relatives. Bro. Roy McCullough will be our speaker next Sunday.
Well not much news here so I’ll try to do better next time. Have a good day.
