    I had to check in on this thread before work this morning. Glad your sense of humor is intact. Maybe one of them nurses will let you peek under her mask?

    Man, maybe this sounds weird, but over the years I've found it much easier to pray with a guitar in my hands..... I'll do some of that for you this evening.

    Like everyone, I'm glad you went to the ER, and I'm glad they are helping you. Get better!!!

    It's not failed yet... You can't die. Heaven don't want ya, and Hell don't want ya to take over the joint.

    well heres a little update.
    looks like im going to be here a day or two more.
    the drug they gave me to slow the heart rate had no effect, so now they gotta figure out whats up with that.
    just had xrays done....next stop echo room. then cat scan room......and then on to the room that houses the geese that lay the golden eggs.
    havent eaten in two days, so they ordered me up a bigass breakfast with all the stuff.

    Just got back from a CT scan myself, and checked in. Nice to see you in good spirits. I'd like to drop 17 lbs in a day...

    Admit that after checking the forum this morning, between posts by Ben, Thom and you I was a bit leery of getting my own CT.... but I'm layin' low the rest of the day. You do the same and hang in there. My condolences to all who are suffering today.

    Good vibes to you, Kelly. You're on your 8th life, so follow your doctors' instructions.

    You seem awfully young to have these issues . . .

    Edit: Just read about the heart issues you have had since a child. That is unfair and yet I don't know any words to make you magically get better. Mom always said when we were little kids our problems could be solved by a chocolate chip cookie. Once we started growing up and had real issues that we had to sort through it pained her that she could not make our problems go away so easily.

    So take this post as that metaphorical chocolate chip cookie which may not make you problems go away, the empathy is real.

    Get well soon.

    You still owe him a real cookie.

    Well... You gotta be feeling better now that you lost that 17lbs of fluids. I’m glad you had the good sense to get to the hospital And they’re doing their thing. Get some breakfast into yourself and concentrate on getting better. There’s a whole catalogue of Malmsteen riffs you need to be working on when you get out.

    Good luck. It sounds as though you are getting good care.
