I'm not sure if Myrna Logan would want this posted but I think it merits some notice. I have received two e-mails in the last few days, the latest being today from her husband Robert.

It appears she has had some medical problems and I will post below both notes that he sent me. As a fellow MOC member I know that she is well known and all will wish her a speedy recovery.

This one dated June 11......
Hello All .....
Well, I took Myrna into the hospital at 5:00 this morning for her
1) EKG; 2)heart x-ray; 3) cardio-conversion; and, 4) pacemaker implant (my non-medical terms).

All four procedures went "very well", no surprises! She was a 'trooper'!! She will be in the hospital overnight so they can monitor the pacemaker, and her, and make whatever adjustments might be necessary.

I should bring her home about noon on Thursday.

Thank you for all of your e-mail, love and prayer support. That means a lot to both of us!!


This one dated today....June 14.
I thought I was going to bring Myrna home Thursday morning,
then Friday, but I just brought her home this afternoon!

She retained a lot of fluid from her IV during the procedure and
then it 'settled' in her lungs. She also developed a slight case of
congestive heart failure. So, they were working on correcting
a couple of things. But her new EKG sure looks good compared to her old ones. Seton Hospital is the 'Heart Center of Central Texas' so I guess she was in the right place to get the best care!

She seems to be a lot better today! But, it will be several days
before she is anywhere near back to normal. We'll just do the follow-up appointments and take it a day at a time.

Well.... I need to let some others know that she is home, so I'll close now.

Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts and prayers. I am indeed home and grateful for my many blessings. Everyday i should get stronger and I now have a beautiful regular heartbeat and a machine that keeps the rate where it should be. Sponge Bob is doing a great job of taking care of me. Even snuck some diet pepsi into the hospital for me. I am also grateful for the wonderful technology that is available to keep us going. Hopefully in another month we will be able to take some short trips. This TX heat is getting to me... I am sure there is a 2nd a/c in our future. Again thanks.. eat heart healthy and keep walking!!!

Myrna,

So glad to see that you are doing well and posting on the boards so soon. Seton is the best for health care. I have used them several times myself.

We didn't have the second AC the first summer we had our 3400RL. We added the second one and we love it. With both of them running you will stay cool even in the 100 heat. I also love the white noise the second AC in the bedroom makes. It sure drowns out the neighbors diesel truck or a motorcycle firing up in the mornings.

You stay healthy and keep improving. Prayers are with you for a speedy recovery.

Colleen

Glad you're better! Take it easy as it takes a while to recoup--been there at least twice, don't want to do it again. After my first big heart attack it took me 6 months to feel like myself again. Doc says I'll be on meds the rest of my life, go figure!

On the A/c, I advise not running the power through the Monty's circuit board. Break off and put it on it's own 110 power cord. This allows you to plug it in directly to the post and not pull extra amperage through the unit. Many times we've had to plug into 30 amp service which would not allow us to run the main a/c and microwave at the same time, much less a second a/c. This way you can get both a/c's running to cool the unit down then switch off the main and maintain internal temps with the front unit. Utilizing the a/c's in this manner the panel powers other appliances only. Secondly, it allows you to cut power to the Monty for electrical work and still cool the unit via the front A/C. Our dealer's service techs love that fact!

And I too, love the white noise it provides. Both DH and I snore so the noise it provides, even just running the fan, helps us sleep.

Colleen.. thanks, we have just broken all records for the hottest June since the Civil War, according to the weather people. We hit over 100 again today. There is no end in sight.
Lisa...thanks for the advice. I will pass it on to my DH. We are doing some inquiries and it won't be cheap. I am doing better every day, but it sure is hard to get out and walk. I try for outside in the early am when it is in the 80's and then walk the inside of the rig. We are not near enough to a mall to do that. Sometimes Walmart and the grocery store have to do...

Myrna,

I have walked a mile in a Walmart Please find some places that you can stay cool trying to stay fit. We are in Sound Dakota right now, but should be back in Texas by the 4th of July. Sure hope the temperatures break before we get home.

Prayers are staying with you that everything smells like roses. I would say bluebonnets.... but they don't smell.

Colleen

Thanks Dusty and Colleen... would love to smell the roses. The poor plants are too hot to even bloom. The Crape Myrtle's are looking great however. It rained a little this morning in the hill country and it stayed in the 80's all morning. We love it. Have walked to the road and back twice now. Safe travels Colleen and bring the cool weather back with you.
