Bypass
« on: March 17, 2017, 07:14:07 pm »
This coming Monday it will be 3 weeks since my bypass. Boy am I bored  :(. They say I need at least 3 more weeks before I start doing much and not much then. I've got enough sense to know I can't do much now but I hate it. How have any of you manage to get by after something like this. I stare out my window and look at my mill and logs thinking what I'm going to do with them in a few weeks.

 I know just how you feel. That being said, you'll saw them log's and make some great lumber cause you've had the extra time to see them for what they'll produce. I get bored then mad that I don't have the energy to get very far in a day. Don't let it get you down, your on the mend, the time will go faster each week. Soon you'll be sawing and wonder where the time went 😀.

I hope you the best. The doc's said I should feel great after recovery, I guess I should be great-full for that. Just never been down this long before. But I've never been 63 either :)
