How Was Your Bypass Recovery And Cardiac Rehabilitation Experience? Carol: I was in there for several days, the bad news seeing I was in there over at Thanksgiving and that’s not the time you want to be in the hospital. My daughter had come for 10 days from Colorado to be with me so, I had to farm her out to somebody for Thanksgiving but I did well. Of course, I'm a competitive person so, in fact I was doing the rounds with the drip thing, all the other people walking around the hospital circle there and when we got through my daughter says, “Mom, I always knew you were competitive but I thought it was only about golf.” Because I was trying to do laps on all these people out there. So, that was good but I did well with this recovery and came home and I did well for myself. So, do what you need to do. Got into rehab, that was in November and January. I got into rehab program there that was just outstanding. I went three days a week for three months and the nurses in there are just wonderful. Every time I go back over to the hospital to see people like I always go in there and say hello and they just think it’s great because I look good to them.
