As one of the many that Toobroke has helped and encouraged over the years, I also wish to extend my best wishes for a speedy and safe recovery. Toobroke, you are a treasure trove of knowledge and experience, and your expertise is truly appreciated and needed here. My thoughts will be with you and your family, and hope to see you back here soon.

Fish, tell me which hospital. As you know I'm in the hosp business and will check on him.

Too late as I talked my way out of there. When I found out I would be staying for another 7 days I told the doctor I can give myself the injections. After pondering that he agreed to discharge me and within a couple of hours I was on my way home. His nurse gave me a crash course in giving injections and then faxed the necessary Rx's to my Rite Aid pharmacy. Wow is that stuff ever expensive as 14 pre-loaded syringes and a bottle of little pills cost almost $1100 (but my Medicare insurance picked up 90% of that).

A blood clot in the lungs is an extremely dangerous condition as if it were to break loose it would continue on up and lodge in my brain; either giving me a stroke or killing me outright. So I'm supposed to take it REAL easy for the next few months. No fast or extended walking or anything else that increase my heart rate.

I would like to thank all of you for giving me such kind words. You're a great bunch of guys.

Thanks for all the kind words and encouragement guys. I feel perfectly normal so it was a shock to find I had such a dangerous condition going on inside pf me. As the clot can break loose and travel to my brain any time I have to be careful about doing anything that can raise my heart rate. If anything driving my Corvettes lowers my heart rate as it's so relaxing.
