    I think Bill has many more years of Yankee playoffs ahead of him and hopefully a few Dtown Tigers as well.

    Nice to hear pal.

    When I was a young kid I tried to get my mum to quit and would buy those little exploding pellets from the joke shop and put them in her smokes so when she lit them they wound pop after a little while.

    ...she stopped smoking...but only because the exploding pellets blinded her!

    I did that to my mom too. I got in SO much trouble when one went off as she was driving to work one day!

    Congrats on the Anniversary. It's been a while since I've seen the charts, but I think that lung capacity/function is back to near 100% at the 3 month mark! So Breathe Easy!

    ya know i never thought to do that to my mom as a kid. i'm actually surprised i never thought of that. she's since quit though. anyways Bill it's been about a week or so since i last was on this thread and i'm so thrilled and happy to see you out of your coma and back with your family, are you still in the hospital or at home? and of course with this family you have here as well. congrats on staying clear of the smokes for 3 months keep it up man. and most of all be well my friend and take it as easy as you can too

    As of right now I am in a "Sub-Acute Facility" which has a primary focus of Physical/Occupational/Speech Therapy. I do various exercises with personnel 3 hrs a day and I am slated to leave for home again on Sunday 8/9/15 and continue as an out patient.

    Perhaps, when I get oriented next week, I'll take a stab at the turn of events and conditions that occurred for yours and my own benefit. Certainly, we have enough qualified medical personnel and old farts to maybe make some heads or tails of this mess and do each other some good. Info, tips and similar experience thoughts would be greatly welcome. Just remember, this will be delivered through my limited knowledge and only if you folks want me to rake a stab at it. You just may feel "Bugger, isn't it just good enough to be above ground and leave it at that", as I myself often do as well. LOL



    Edit: Amazing anecdote passed onto me by an RN. For every 1 day spent in an ICU unit, totally immobile and drugged, it takes 7 days of therapy to recoup!!!

    Very interesting Edit note.

    By the way not sure why they would label you as a Cute Sub ...would have thought you to be more a Dom.
    Also: When you're comfortable it would be welcome by at least a few to know what suddenly got Big Bill down.
    It may be helpful to share .... for us and for you. Healing involves understanding and accepting.

    you have more knowledge of it than i do my friend. though my mom is now a retired RN funny enough. so she may know what all you went through, than again she was still learning stuff after nearly 40 years as a nurse as well. so i don't think that was her department of what you are going through. she worked in the ER mostly. at least in the past decade or so. anyways having said that, if you want to share with us what you are going through, perhaps that also can help you deal with it as well emotionally i mean as well as physical. there no doubt are folks on here who have no doubt maybe been through what you have recently, or work in that particular field i have no idea i'm just guessing my friend. but keep getting better man.

    Well, Bill is back (home that is)!!! I still have a few weeks of recovery through Physical therapy, but being home is a damn site better than being at the hospital. I would still appreciate any suggestions, tips, words of wisdom from some of our more medically inclined members through "PM" and you can rest assured those PM's will remain confidential and be greatly appreciated. I'll know better tomorrow what the goals and scheduling will be for me to continue "out patient" P/T, but at least a plan is in the forming.

    Now to the task of thanking all you wonderful folks here for the amazing out pouring of well wishes. This should be a form of therapy as well!!! Many thanks to all you folks out there in TDT.Org world!!!!

    Great News! Glad to hear you are back at home Bill!
    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King
