Bill is a warrior, he should get through just fine.  Please let him know he is being sent good thoughts from many countries!

I too would like to wish Bill a strong recovery. I'm sure he is already figuring out what he can invent or alter to help him adapt to his current condition.

Sending hugs and prayer to him and his family.

Hi Bill’s wife. This had to be a difficult task for you to inform us of your husband’s temporary absence. Thank you so much. Bill has provided so many of us with so much comfort. My hope is the two of you feel the grateful love we’re sending.

Hi to Bill and his family.

i will be thinking and praying for you and yours. Hope to see you back on the site soon. Your creative poetry and writing is looked forward to by so many of us. I remember when you wrote "me and my stoma " to the tune of me and my shadow about 3 yrs ago. Take very good care and God Bless. 

Very sincerely Rosiesmom

Amazing. I was wondering where Bill is and then ran across your post. He is such a regular, erudite contributor to this forum that as you can see, he is being missed by many. Wishing him all the best and a very speedy recovery.

The Royal Brompton is one of the best hospitals in the world for the surgery that Bill needs. A close friend from here went to London for the same operation and was all praise for the medical staff. He said that the Doctor told him that when they opened him up, they could smell the cigars and the whisky! He is quite hale and hearty now. Another patient from the Royal Brompton ran in the London Marathon one year after surgery. In other words, Bill will be in good hands.

Hello Everyone! Just an update and to thank you all so much for your good wishes during what has been something of a difficult time. The worst of it seems to have now passed and I have to look forward to about 6 more weeks of convalescence before I can return to normal activities. I doubt if I will be able to log on here very often to post for a few weeks because I am busy writing rhymes about my experiences as a heart attack victim and a bi-pass patient. However, there is only so much that can occupy one's mind in this respect and I hope to have enough poems for a book by the end of the month. After that I would hope to be able and motivated enough to come back and talk to everyone again on a regular basis.

Once again thank you for your thoughts and good wishes as they are much appreciated.

Best wishes

So nice to hear from you. Rest easy but keep writing.

Nous saluons le retour. Some of my friends and me have all had either stents inserted in the arteries or a by-pass so your poems on the above subjects will be eagerly awaited. Incidentally, there was a gang in New York City called the "by-pass" gang but their speciality was how to by-pass the alarms in a bank! All the best wishes for an early recovery.
