    Mondays are better than Fridays, at least the needles will be sharp.

    Best of luck, fella.

    The doc did a final angiogram test to assess what should happen and decided that I didn't need the full chest-open elbow-deep procedure, and instead slung in three stents via a catheter in my wrist.

    Instead of a couple of weeks in critical care, I'm home already and looking forward to a sunny week recuperating with my feet up in the garden.

    Life is sweet.

    Don't even...

    First, you reported what you were told. And shared it here with everyone. I (and most certainly the collective here I would think) appreciate your confidence in sharing with us.

    Next, you raised awareness on the potential for others, and aided in them wrapping their minds around being proactive to watch their health. Helpful and priceless!

  12. Are you serious? There’s no one here that says they were ripped off to this show and want a refund. Happy endings work. Now you dont have to worry if they sewed a sponge or a cigarette lighter inside you by accident. Or mix3ed you up with someone else and now you are Mrs

    But why a spoon, cousin, why not an axe?

    Because it will hurt more you idiot!

    One of my favorite bad lines from one of my favorite bad movies. 2.3 points to whomever guesses the movie.

    I'm lucky. In a family with cholesterol problems, I actually have low cholesterol. My father had triple bypass at 49. He got the religion, changed his life style and lived to be 86. He arteries were still pretty clear when he died.

    Great advice there... I was in denial about my MS, despite walking wonky and falling on my face with the regularity of an 18 month old learning to walk. Saw someone, got help, job done. The quicker you wise up and get help, the quicker people can help you. Hope you are feeling a lot better very soon buddy. ...

    Glad you made it, Mark, with flying colours. I've hard some heart troubles meself, twice. The second time within the last 9 months and I went through a mild surgery, too. My situation was not as bad as yours, but I'd say any heart trouble is a "stopping" one. Feel for you, brother.
