24 July 2013:


Good afternoon ladies. I am sorry that I have been unable to post of recent but I have been a guest of the NHS here in the UK following further end-stage cardiac issues. I was actually discharged on Monday following a period of being stabilised. I have known for a little while now that there is no further surgical intervention that the specialists are prepared to undertake and so it is simply a case of 'keep taking the tablets' lol. I am sure that you can all read between the lines as to what I am saying and so I would greatly appreciate it if I could ask you not to be concerned for me or to feel any need to reply to this post. In any event, I hope that this will go some way to explain my recent absence and being AWOL in the future. Take care lovely ladies.

I am sorry I missed it when you posted this. I hope you enjoy being home again. We sure missed your humor. Can't promise I won't worry when you go AWOL but say a prayer for you instead. I'm sure she who must be obeyed will make sure you follow doctors orders. Take care!

Blessings to you & your loved ones. You seem to be accepting of your health issues & it reminded me of my mother's. She too had heart issues ( 5 replacements, etc.)& was told she's be extremely lucky so see me go off to school. She accepted that & went about the best quality of life possible. She lived to be 73 years young,,,,,so sometimes end-stage issues can go on a lot longer than expected (& I so very much hope that for you too !!) Have a wonderful day, Judie

You show those doctors they are wrong. Take the tablets and enjoy every minute of the day, as we all should cause life is to short to fret about.

I'll keep you in my prayers

Dennis, I don't post much here at Cute, but do try to make the rounds from time to time to read and give flowers to all Cuties. I just want to say the first time you posted..I was delighted to have a Cute Brother...finally. I can't speak for my Cute Sisters, but I think most will agree what a joy and inspiration you are to all of us. My Sisters are all so special and I'm so blessed to have them in my life...even if only as Cyber Sisters. I feel I know them...for real because of all the life events we share with each other. We pray, laugh, and cry together and that makes up for a very special Cyber Family. So if it's okay with you, since I believe in the power of prayer, that I will remember you and your lovely wife Anne in my prayers and thoughts as I know most of our Cute Sisters will.
Big ole huggers to you and thanks for being a special Cutie!!

You have every justification for feeling the way that you do about your Cute Sisters. They are, indeed, all lovely ladies and for my part, I owe a debt of great gratitude that I have been made so welcome. Thank you for your caring and support.

I appreciate the fact that you don't want us to worry - but, remember the majority of us are women and our middle names are "worry" - that being said - we also care about you - you will be in our thoughts are prayers!!!! Hugs to you, Laura*

What else can I do except say that I missed your posts and wish you good luck ? As you already know - life can be strange and medical advice should be taken in context ( I am an ex Nursing Sister ) Not to say that they are wrong but then they are not always right either !!

Dennis, So good to hear from you even though it is not nice news. My thoughts are with you and Anne. Take care of yourself and take it easy. My DH had a quadruple bypass nearly 4 years ago, so I know how worrying this is for you. Hugs Sarah.

1 comment
dennis999 by dennis999 25 Jul 2013

Thank you Sarah. I've now had two quadruple bypass ops (well, the second time was to bypass the previous bypasses, followed by (I've lost count of) numerous stents being put in since then. My problem is partly heredatory (hardening of the arteries) and partly years of taking in noxious fumes and smoke during my early career. This latter explanation has been added to remove any potential concerns for your Husband. Take good care of him and ban him from painting jobs.....lol.

I do hope you take good care of you! I know that all Firefighters are very good at caring for others...Please -- take good care of our friend. You provide balance and a lighthearted fun to this Cute place!
I am sure you just wore your "ticker" out trying to save many from fires. Perhaps the specialists would consider installing a newer model -- if you tell them Cuties around the world worry for you.
Please take the advice given...get a Cute Buddy.
Hugs and a flower for your garden.

Thanks so much. I am sure you are right, Ann said that a newer model would suit her down to the ground.................oh, you meant a replacement 'ticker'....lol. Unfortunately, a replacement is not going to happen!!

Hi Dennis, I am a fan of having a Cute Buddy. This person could actually call you and check on you. The other option is to teach your wife how to post so that should there be a repeat performance, someone can let us ???(you fill in the word) know. I have 1 who checks on me and 1 that I check on, and she checks on someone else, and around the web we go. I like to think of it as taking an active role in this group, and since you have already read the concerned posts I hope you agree. Glad you are well.

I totally agree with suedewsbury, as long as the sun continues to rise we will continue to be concerned! You are a valuable part of our cute community and were missed. I am glad you are stabilized and continue to do as the doctor has said. Please keep us updated and drop by to share your project wisdom and sense of humor as often as possible. Hugs, Barba

And we all thought you were away on holiday. Please do as you are told and keep taking the tablets - everyone has missed you .
Asking us not to be concerned is like asking the sun not to rise tomorrow. It isn't going to happen.
