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...

  3. 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

    1. 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

    2. Deidre: thanks for the kind offer, and I will follow your advice on getting better.

    3. GT: thanks for the words of encouragement.... I am down to 170.5 pounds when I get up in the morning, but have almost always ate healthy except for the snacks (which are a thing of the PAST)... You keep well also

  5. 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?

    1. Gosh, Red, I can't believe I said that 3rd sentence.
      I was just trying too hard to be funny.
      I hope you know that I wish you and Cindy nothing
      but the very best!

  17. 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
