Cowart's Common Room
Good report

I saw my surgeon this week, and he is thrilled with my progress. I don't need to do the follow up cardiac programme, as he feels I am active enough. I was on 7 heart tablets which had me feeling rotten, and turned me against the smell and taste of food. I was really force feeding myself, as I don't wish to lose weight. To my delight he said I can discontinue the lot. He says I do not have heart disease, and that my arteries are all clear, which is great news.It was a mecanical fault, and he figures I will be flying around for years. He has now handed me over to Surgeon number 2, who will look after the second Aneurysm. I am having an MRI scan done on Monday, and then seeing the surgeon on Wednesday. At least I will then know whats happening with it. I still have to pace myself. I had a few falls where my blood pressure had dropped, but that is fine now, except the pain in my bum, where I fell down on concrete.

I am hoping to do a little light work in the garden this weekend. Tigger is O.K. Snoopy is badly behaved, but getting better. Kevin my brother is still in hospital. My heart goes out to him, but we just have to cope. Will keep you posted. Oh, by the way, stilll off the ciggies!

Re:
Blackbird's Avatar I'm happy to see your update Tiggy! What great news that you can stop the meds and that you are basically very healthy. But, that shouldn't really be a surprise because you are very conscientious about your diet and daily life.
Keep it up! Take care and keep resting as much as you are able- I know it's hard for you to sit still.

Buckets of healing purple vibes to you all.

Faith's Avatar Excellent news Tiggy - thank goodness you can get off the tabs and maybe you will fancy food again. You are so little you can't afford to lose weight. Though Snoopy is naughty, I bet he keeps you amused and is lovely company. Take care, Faith xx

Ivy's Avatar Great to see your update and such a good one too. Hope Snoopy will learn his lessons soon ( do use a professional dog trainer they can do miracles when a dog is young but the older they get , the more difficult it gets and you are not in the right shape to do it all alone!) Sorry to hear about the fall on your behind. Hope this is a thing of the past now that you don't need heart medication anymore. Keeping my fingers crossed for good results on the scan.

Re:
Withy Brook's Avatar Wonderful news, Tiggy. I hope that you do not have to have the second aneurysm operated on but if you do, it will not be nearly as bad as it is so much less than the first. Keep taking it gently - you sound as though you are being a good girl so far! Trouble is that once started on the garden, one finds oneself doing more that one should - or I do, anyway.

Re:
Pondside's Avatar Such good news, Tiggy! This made my day, as I often think about you. The Great Dane had two aneurysms but both dissected and we have had a very long haul. Your good news is such a tonic!
