Hello everyone, this is Buzz, Giblarry's partner
« on: August 16, 2009, 05:48:04 PM »
Hi everybody.  Since Larry joined this forum, I've been reading and trying to catch up.  I think he has told you all something about our history, so I won't  restate all that. 

Just had my 2nd anniversary of quintuple bypass surgery last month!  Had to change all my meds after that and it's been a bit of a challenge to get back to some kind of normalcy.  Those of you who have had bypass due to AIDS know what I mean, I'm sure.  I guess my personal mission is to do my best to help those having problems to get through them and get back to a healthier state. And for those who haven't had any heart/Hiv/Aids problems to prevent their occurance. 

So I'll do my best to answer questions and respond to comments on this or any other topic regarding Hiv/Aids.  Hope to hear from you. 

Much love and light to all.

Hey Buzz,

Welcome, very happy you've joined in.

I am trying to avoid heart complications, as they run in the family. I may be picking your brain as things arise.

Glad you're here and I look forward to getting to know you better.

HUGS,

Mark

Hi Dennis.  Nice to meet you.  Glad to see your partner is doing well.  You are right about taking Heart Meds and eating right.  Makes all the difference.  I might be picking your brain about cooking.  We're still learning, but making progress.  Thanks for responding.

Hey Mark,

I had family history too.  My Dad passed away suddenly at age 67 from a massive heart attack due to clogged arteries.  He didn't do anything to monitor himself.  Said he hated doctors!  So education and monitoring are very important.  So pick my brain ( what may be left of it) anytime.  Still learning but have picked up a lot of info along the way.  Thanks for your interest.  Hope to talk to you soon.

Pick away anytime you want to, I have a lot to tell you about a Heart Patient, that I've learned in the last 7 yrs. about cooking, Joel, can tell you a lotta things as well  ;D
