I want to begin by expressing my appreciation to those of you who submitted comments or sent emails to me indicating that you missed us and hoped we were OK. I can't begin to adequately share how meaningful they were.
It's been a tough spring and summer for Barry and me, but we are fine. Shortly after my last post, we learned that Barry was still having some heart issues. Fortunately, he didn't have another heart attack, because we acted promptly. However, he did end up with two more stents being installed. Since then, my complete focus has been on his rehab and working to learn and do all we can to help prevent another episode. Consequently, my heart and mind have not been on posting. I'm just now beginning to realize how much I miss it. And, I want to apologize for not at least posting something to share what was going on in our lives.
This recent heart event, along with some additional medications that Barry is taking, has created another surprise in our lives ... erectile dysfunction. Barry had previously experienced it on occasion. However, after this heart event, it came on with a vengeance. We have learned that it is pretty common with heart situations. Needless to say, it is frustrating to both of us, but especially for Barry. However, we have been learning how to work with it. I don't want to go into more detail right now, but will try to share more in subsequent posts.
