    Thanks, gang! I'll be having bypass on my femoral arteries-left leg is first and finally the right leg. That should do me for the forseeable future!!

    Just want to say something positive ... the smoking cessation is going to be VERY beneficial to you for this surgery.

    Hugs and good thoughts for you.

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    Monday night I drove up to check on my SIL because she wasn't answering her phone and found her dead in bed. She was only 61. She had a pacemaker and very possibly was abusing alcohol and/or prescription drugs, so this wasn't totally unexpected, but it's still a shock. There have been other times she hasn't answered her phone when I've been sure I'd find her unconscious on the floor or worse, and she was just sleeping because she'd stay up all night watching tv and sleep during the day. My brother died May 2012 and he was her whole world, so they're back together again. I feel a bit guilty though because normally I'm in touch with her at least once a week, but was busy last week helping my son and his wife with some remodeling and didn't call her. I know it likely wouldn't have made any difference to the outcome, but I sure wish life had a rewind button.

    Kip, I am so sorry for the loss of your sister-in-law and for the way that you found out about her passing. Did she and your brother have any children? Despite your misgivings about not calling her last week, it looks like you were fairly attentive to her. I don't speak or write to my siblings as much as I should. Your post is a reminder to reach out to those that I feel close to. We just can't take that time for granted, can we?

    My thoughts are with you and your family.
