125. Thanks.
I'm glad you made out better. Atrial Fib? Sounds like. Especially the heart stop and go treatment. (It didn't work for him and they did it twice.) Anyway, that's why my Dad was taking Coumadin -I think that's the name of it.

How wonderful to hear that people still get treatment without insurance! I thought maybe those days were over now what with corporate, for-profit healthcare everywhere.

And hey! don't be counting your days - as long as they adjust your meds right you should do ok. Both my grandmother (who lived until 98) and my Dad had A-Fib and it wasn't the actual heart problem that killed either of them. You know that saying - it's never what your worry about most that 'gets' you.

Alone in the forest with no family? I can see where that would be good and bad at the same time. With divorced parents who both remarried I've been experiencing a lot of loss lately and feeling more lonely myself. My Dad went in 2007, my Mom died suddenly of lung-cancer in 2008, my best-girlfriend (since 3rd grade!)died in 2009 of the exact same cancer as my Mom and this year my step-Mom died of complications from Diabetes. Now it's just my step-Dad that's left. Well... and one son who has a lot of trouble with life due to alcohol.

Still, a nice place in a forest sounds pretty appealing to someone in a manufactured home so at least there's that. and having a computer and the Internet helps, I'm sure. If you ever get too lonely don't hesitate to PM me, I'm on my computer a lot --actually, due to DU, a bit too much. :D
