Update Thursday : I saw my heart surgeon today and got a clean bill of health. I do not have to go back to him. Everything is great and I’ve been cleared to go back to work light duty next week. This just after 13 days from quadruple by pass surgery. My surgeon said I was ahead of schedule and I needed to get out of his office so he could see some sick people, lol. Thanks to everyone for the prayers, warm caring words , love and support. Special thanks to my wife Tammy and my family for takin such good care of me. They kept me sane and occupied while I was sitting at home quarantined and bored to death. God has watched over me and I love you all for your concern and support. Berl
