Papa’s World – Family Krohn – two seasons – cold and warm – I LIKE WARM!

My season is WARM and WARMER!

Ever since I had my Heart attack some 7 1/2 years ago –

I get chilled very easy – even before I did not like the snow – ice and cold!

But – the families seem to like it – skiing – snowboarding and playing in the snow!

When we were back home for the Holidays – believe it or not – we went to a winery!

Where we had wine – snacks and a fire in a fire pit.

The pit was free and offered by the winery!

I bundled up and made it through -but by the end I was cold!

Here we are – outside – about 7 PM. – Marcus – Papa – Bode – Sherry – Taylor – Tammy – Cassidy!

I have to admit – it was unique – but I very seldom drink wine –

I just can not get into the dry wines!

Now – a sweeter wine I can sip on!

Sherry Cassidy Taylor – Tammy & Bode

What a difference 3 weeks make!

From snow and cold to sand and somewhat warm!

Even though it was not as warm as we would of liked – for Jan. it was okay!

I am not shoveling snow – I can layer up and walk the beach!

School break – and a quick trip down – Marcus could not get away.

The first thing they wanted to see – THE BEACH!

The little ones love the beach – sand and water.

And then we took them for a walk along the ICW at Barefoot Landing!

Watching the boats traveling up and down –

and seeing the boats in the marina – where a lot of people are living on the boats there!

WHERE WE ARE UNTIL END OF JUNE!

Papa’s World – Living life to the plus – one day at a time – blessed that I can!

Another in the series of my year in review blogs – 2020.

Well – where do I start – I have lived another year – in most cases – I wouldn’t be here!

2020 has been a very strange year – but – here I am – living through it!

For those that do not know – seven years ago I had a heart attack!

Not your normal one if there is such a thing –

but they called it a “WIDOW MAKERS” one.

I ended up with FOUR BY PASSES!

and walked out of the hospital 52 hours after surgery!

We have grand children – and I am blessed to see a picture such as this!

So – a year in review of 2020 – it is scary – frustrating – wonderful – satisfying –

nerve wracking – joyful – nail biting – and any other adjective you can throw in there!

But – here we are on another adventure – after selling our house during a pandemic – living our lives one day at a time!

You never know as I can attest – just what the day before you can bring!

Now – we are building a new home near Ocean Isles Beach – N.C.

And being careful – wearing our masks when we are close to people and inside!

I see no sane reason to refuse to do that because it infringes on your liberties!

Come on you folks – who protest this – it is a common being nice sort of thing!

We old folks – well we have been around and wish to continue to be around –

so just wear them – it will not hurt you – and it may save me from covid19!

There – that is my take on the pandemic!

It is indeed a strange year – one of challenges but joy when you see your family!

ZOOM is now a big part of that – staying in touch with virtual meetings –

church and religion – shopping and home delivery!

And the times you spend with friends after quarantine!

We stay safe so we can enjoy friends – getting tested – being careful –

2020 has brought many strange things into our lives –

Who could imagine every day walking the sands and surf of the beach!

2020 – with all its quirks – and I am living to see it!

So – you see – I count my days as blessings – no matter what comes before me.

Yep – happens to me – but who cares!

In this past year – we have become more and more dependent on each other.

We have become closer to family if that is at all possible.

2020 has taught me things –

2020 has in a way – been a comfort for me in that we are once again

on a adventure – every day – planning – looking – exploring!

The sun rises with the one you love!

Papas World – six years and one day ago – 4 by passes.

I remember standing in front of the fire place –

the night before I was to leave –

I had to be there at 7:00 AM.

I looked around and wondered if

I would ever stand here again?

I was scared – I did not want to do this.

Six years later

I had a routine I had to do before I went to bed –

Instructions to prepare for major surgery

I kept looking around – in the mirror at my chest

Knowing in less that 24 hours – it would be changed

for the rest of my life – if I lived.

It is hard to describe how one feels when in 24 hours

You may not be alive.

That next morning I had to finish the instructions

and then the 45 to 60 minute drive to the hospital.

All the way there – I sat in the back seat –

looking in the dark at the lighted buildings we passed.

Tammy and Sherry were in the front.

Things run through your mind – do I back out?

Then a calm comes as you pull into the parking lot.

You are there – you start walking – and then like a second breath

It becomes real and you just want to get started

and not think anymore.

You have the most important person in the World by your side

They prep you and put in the ports

You say goodbye and they wheel you down

but first they inject what they said was a mild calming effect.

They came to the doors and I remember seeing everything seemed

to be black and white – and then nothing – I was out!

I awoke 3 1/2 hours after they finished – they had started at 10 am.

At 2:00 pm.

I was closed up and by 6:30 pm.

I was standing.

I recovered really fast – less than 48 hours later I was discharged

And once again standing in our living room in front of that same fireplace.

This time – smiling and thinking I am alive and here I stand – 62 hours later!

Sherry & Tom
almost six years later

I owe my health to my wife – who has steered me in the right direction

both in what I do and do not eat.

What supplements I do and do not take.

SIX YEARS AND ONE DAY AGO –

I HAD A MAJOR OPERATION

A OPEN HEART OPERATION

WITH FOUR BY PASSES

I AM ALIVE
