Woo-Woo! I'm back!

Well, It's been an interesting couple of days.

Saturday, after lunch, I was having chest pains, and I had my wife take me to the ER. They looked at me for about 45 minuyes, then put me on a helicopter to Dallas. Woo-Woo. Hadn't been on one since 1972!

They stuck a low pulse Cardo-difibrilator on me, and that sucker popped me about every 10 minutes. That wasn't fun, but I can take it. Got to Baylor, and they ran the same tests the other hospital ran, then took me to surgery. They did an emergency angiogram and found a 90% block artery. Put in a stint, and took me to a room.

Tried to get out Sunday, but the Doc said no way. Begged and whined until they were glad to see me go today. They wanted one more day, but I told them if I had to stay there any longer, I was going to start smoking again.

That did it! They kicked me out at 3:00 this afternoon. Have to go back Friday to get the stitches removed. Feel great. Ready to test out that 10mm between noe and Friday.

That reminds me. The doctor told me, don't lift anything heavier than a wash rag. I told him I would lift anything heavier than a 1911. He didn't get it. Sandy had to explain. He he he he!

What did I miss?

Measure twice, cut once.
Empty the clip!

    You did not miss anything, we missed you. Glad you are back and doing well, I was first worried the "I will miss him forever" thread was about you. Glad to know you are still kicking. Don't lift anything heavier than a 9mm.

    There is a bit of a disagreement going on in Iraq. Other than that you have not missed much. [8D]

    Good to hear from you buddy! Don't you have that girl trained to let us know what's going on???

    Had us concerned, even Chris/Maggie was about to spend the money for a phone call.[:D]

    Congrats on catching that one in time. My grandfather had the same thing happen, got up from breakfast and felt funny. Better to get a stint in time than a bypass when you're turning blue. Hope you recover quickly.

    Heff: Best of luck on your full recovery. Looks like God is
    with you. Now, take easy for a short bit. If youre lucky as I
    am you will be shooting for a LONG while yet. So take it slow
    for a bit.

    dheffley, It sounds to me that you had a lot of your friends worried.
    Take it easy you old reprobate and do what the doctors tell you, because I enjoy your posts and we all want you around for a long time.

    Welcome back and follow the docs orders you set at the bench and have someone place the gun in your hands already on the sandbab rest. Then have them load and chamber the weapon. All you have to to is sight and squeeze the trigger. [:D]
