Positive Energy, Red - - Ya know I love ya - even if we come from different perspectives.

I just had my own scare - a slightly abnormal and slow heartbeat - but, apparently normal for me. Waiting for the results was torture enough.

Take good care of yourself - - I know you've got more fight in you.

Till then, Annee

God bless and keep you and your family safe, get well soon and take it easy after the operation, easier said than done I know but definitely good advice.

Prayers for my favorite Redneck's rapid recovery. Hurry back. ATS isn't the same without you!

Best of wishes, TRN! To an uneventful recovery!

And don't worry about us, we'll be here arguing about UFOs, Bigfoot, and TPTB just as before. And it was very wise words said, "take it easy" even though you feel like being back. It is your long term health to take care of.

Based on his posts, I believe TheRedneck is one solid individual and I have a lot of respect for him.
Let's all hope that the surgery goes well.

Please do keep us updated.

Advances with medicine and surgery have made the procedure much safer, so try not to stress yourself out too much and focus on getting better

I am taking a moment this morning of quiet reflection dismissing the pettiness of our constant disagreements and properly honoring our magnificent shared journey in this dream we call life. I wish for Red peace and a quick and comfortable recovery. This life still needs him in it.

Well said, mate. Well said.

Mr. Neck...a speedy recovery to you sir !

Disagreements or not he's a fine fellow of principle with convictions to go with his beliefs.

All the best Redneck, here's hoping for a textbook operation and a resoundingly speedy recovery.

When life and health really hit hard, we realize how trivial everything else is.

Tomorrow morning @7:30 AM, our resident redneck, TheRedneck, is undergoing major heart surgery.

Over the past several years, he and I, through very long conversations, have become very good friends. Please join with me in wishing him the best in his surgery.

I know that many of you disagree with him on a regular basis, but this is much more important than any mere political disagreements you may have with him could, or should, ever be. You will notice I said you, as I'm generally in agreement with him.

Any prayers or good wishes will certainly be welcome, both by his friends, and his family.

GOD SPEED your recover Redneck!

Prayers and (((good vibes)) to one of the sharpest minds and softest hearts on ATS. No wonder it needs tinkering, it’s wore out from caring.

I have totally always like the Redneck.

Wish him the best.

Major heart surgery … that will take months to recover from.

Even getting up to walk again could take some time. He must remember to eat, even if he has no appetite, because how else is his body going to get the calories and nutrients / vitamins needed to heal? Make him eat, at least something!!

Do not let him get discouraged with recovery. Recovery sucks … because we all want to get right back to where we left off, and that is not reality for most.

If they put him in a medical anesthetic coma, he may wake up after bad dreams. Some of the drugs for this are dysphoric.

The grafts will heal in just a few weeks.

The sternum, which is split during open heart procedures will take about 12 weeks to heal, same as any break in a major bone.

They’ll have him out of bed and walking at least short distances, in two to three days after surgery, depending on his condition. Getting out of, and into bed, without using your hands or arms, is something that everyone is surprised to have to learn!

He won’t be allowed to lift anything heavier than 10-15 lbs. for the months that it takes for his sternum to fully heal (mine didn’t heal properly the first time and required that I have it re-split and plated a year after my surgery).

About six months after his surgery (depending) he should start feeling 20 years younger.

Then we’ll all be in trouble!
