When Cliff and I returned from our morning walk, a message had been left on our answering machine; it was Arick, saying he and my horse are fine, and they rode all day yesterday. In 24 hours or so, I'll see Blue again! (Oh yeah, and my grandson too.)
I've been surfing, looking for all sorts of heart bypass information, and also reading the booklets given to Cliff by the hospital and doctors. Everything I've read says he can get back to fully normal life in 12 weeks, not the five or six months we were told by physicians. Perhaps they give a longer time in case things aren't healing properly, so it won't be a disappointment if they have to keep you home that long.
We won't get our hopes too high, but hey... maybe Cliff will be on that motorcycle this summer after all! He'll see the cardiology group a week from Tuesday.
