Shit Happens

Well, I should never have posted about the fickle finger of fate.... an idea from Laugh-in comedy show of so many years ago.

My age: mid sixties...
my activity level: reasonably high, officiating where running is important, playing baseball, walking extensively when on vacations, snorkeling in the Caribbean..
I do NOT smoke, but did in the past, but stopped over 30 years ago.
5'10" 182 pounds - oops this is actually obese
Eating healthy meals (thanks Cindy) but overindulging in chips and baked goods.. and wine..
Family history of heart attacks..

Result: I had  heart attack two weeks ago today...

I am recovering well, after an emergency angioplasty to put a stent in an artery...

This blog will restart as I recover, as I have a few built up posts that I can use, and real easy other posts...

Welcome back, Red, and please get well soon. That finger pointed straight at you!

Hi Red,

I'm sorry to hear that you're hurting, but pleased you are a survivor. Best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery.

Hugs,
Bonnie

Holy crap!

Get well, Red!! I would offer to spank you to make you better, but I think what you need is to some good healing after the operation. You are young yet: eat better and work out, and you will live very long.

My best wishes to you and your wife and family,

Deirdre

Hope your recovery is as swift and complete as mine was. My attack took place in Nov of 1996; I had the same procedure as you describe. Haven't had any more problems in the 12 years since. Cut back on the chips and fatty red meat and exercise. GT

Whoops I messed up the math 1996 was 16 years ago

ricky said...

I agree with all of the above.
Relax, Red, take your time, as time heals all.
And, err, if Cindy isn't busy . . .
I'm kidding, I'm kidding, I'm kidding, OK?

Keep taking the tablets and do what they say. Your partner has even more reason to control you now.

Gosh, Red, I can't believe I said that 3rd sentence.

I hope you know that I wish you and Cindy nothing
but the very best!

Glad to see you're doing better, continue with your recovery. And try not to aggravate your wife, it can be very painful when you're back to 100%. Trust me I know.

Take Care
