State of the Tavern Keeper - Peed Away 10 Pounds and Going

Day7 of my heart hospitalization. I dropped about 10 pounds from Wednesday morning’s weigh in and this morning’s weigh in. What a pisser ;P

Still megadosing furosemide. Peed about 1/2 a gallon between lunch and dinner. Goal is one to two gallons per day.

Monday or Tuesday should be The Stenting. Multiple stents for multiple blockages.


  1. You'll make it. their trying to get your weight under control for the stenting.

  2. O Lord Jesus Christ our God, Who did patiently endure the scourging and wounding of Your most holy Body, that You might save the souls and bodies of Your people, look graciously, we beseech You, upon the suffering body of Your servant Erik and give him strength to endure patiently whatsoever You shall see fit to lay upon him. Bless the means employed for the working out of his cure, granting that he may so endure his sufferings in the flesh that the wounding of his body may be to avail for the salvation of his soul, for Yours it is to show mercy and to save, O Christ our God; and to You do we send up Glory, as to Your Eternal Father and Your All‑Holy, Good and Life‑creating Spirit, both now and ever, and to the ages of ages. Amen.

  3. Hang in there man.
    We're rooting for ya!!!!

  4. The great thing is doctors do stents all the time now. So hope yours is routine and boring.

  5. On streaming services soon! Purge III: The Stenting!

    Good thoughts to you, man.

  6. Best wishes and looking forward to your return.

  7. I remember they gave me furosimide after my heart surgery to help flush the fluids.. Get better man! and if you haven't had stents before.. I suggest being knocked out.. it feels weird feeling somebody inside your heart!

  8. Peggy and I are both rooting for you, man. Much love.

  9. Excellent news! Sounds like you've got a good team working for you. You can beat this.

  10. My last post didn't make it - from my phone so not sure.

    Please take good care Eric, listen to all the nice medical folks now and after you get out of there.
    Thinking of ya and waiting to hear the good news that the procedure was done and went well.
