    Wondering where I\'ve been? Suffered a heart attack...

    Yep... Last monday morning at 9am I went to my knees and couldn't get up. I was taken to the hospital by my friend who just happened to drive by and saw me by my van on my knees. Was rushed to ER and spent the night there on medication and under observation. Next day I was transferred to the local VA hospital where they did an Angiogram and found that I had a collapsed artery on my heart. That led to the installation of a stient (small steel tube) to open up the artery. This all happens by going through your femoral artery in your groin and up to your heart. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    I got released on Friday night at 5pm and am recovering nicely at a friend's house for the time being so that I'm not alone. I won't be on the computer much but will hit here at least once a day for my fix... Oh and by the way... I don't smoke or drink any more at all. Haven't had a cig since the heart attack and don't even miss them... Let me tell you smokers something... The heart attack is pretty bad, but not as bad as the ordeal you go through to fix it and recover. Quit smoking now.... Stop.... Or you will be headed for the same treatment I got. And it aint fun...

    Love you all.. and see you tomorrow...

    speedy recovery to ya..

    i had the same thing 2 years ago, stent, etc.. really is a wake up call.. cigs did it to me.. well, cholesterol was a little high too..

    you'll be amazed at the progress you make in a years time if you stay off the cigs, bad food and get some excercise...

    If you could just get Janie's Ranch back up and running, you'd have a great fitness program to get you back on track. Hope you have a speedy recovery nonetheless...

    I was just wondering yesterday where you were, I figured you were out on an expidition.

    I hope all's getting better and you're feeling better soon. Great news on the butts, keep your wallet fuller and your breathing a little better, not to mention the dozen other benefits of quitting.

    I guess this means I'll have to take it easy on your from here on in. I don't wanna be responsible for the next time your ol' ticker shuts down..... /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Take it easy, brother. How does this affect your skydiving?

    Re: Wondering where I\'ve been? Suffered a heart attack...

    ouch, not good, in last coupel years or so and especialyl lately ive been worrying about health and foods and such and ive decided no more meat and no more junk food of any kind and no butter or oils or anything fried, etc etc am recently changing over to good clean grains foods and fruits vegetable like we are meant to eat in nature mostly, and i worry about not getting any exercise and stuff thanks to months and months of winter being stuck inside and i can tell that i need to changew stuff in life i cant even walk several blocks without having asthma like condition lungs swelling and im only 25 and 135 lbs and sometimes i feel prickly type feelings in my heartbeat at my heart its wierd. i dont smoke and rarely ever drink anything, i have enough problems now at 25 with lungs and junk let alone anything else that could go wrong if i were doing things that i shouldnt be doing, i want to live to at least 40 and thne dont care much after that unless things in my life turn around by then, in which dont look they are going to anyways, and if ever had to go to hospital for anything that major then i would just kill myself anyways i dont want to go through any of that stuff, screw that, id rather just log out early and thats what im gonna do if i end up with health problem with heart or anything else bad,. but so far my dad si in great health at 43 and he smokes even, so i think ill be fine as long as i always eat decent and keep active and such in which i am working towards and worrying about now finally at 25.




    good luck and happy recovery /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
