    Hey, remember when I asked what a heart attack felt like?

    I is one of the cool kids now. I has a zipper, even if my jersey doesn't.

    This actually happened a year ago, but there are some weirdos in here who aren't on Facebook...

    I had a quad + mitral valve repair.

    Recovery is slow. I'm not one of those "lucky" people who had a heart attack, went to the hospital, and had a CABG the next day. No, I had my heart attack in 2013. Then I finally started seeing a doctor in 2014. Then my shop went away in 2015, but by that time I couldn't do much anyway. I hired a kid to do everything. Then the shop closed and I lost everything. Then I became poor enough to get insurance.

    Once I had insurance, i got a heart cath. It's attached. The heart surgeon told me I had 6 months to live in July 2016. I quit smoking (3 years now!) and went vegan for as long as I could take it. That gained me 2 years. Finally, I couldn't put it off anymore... I was taking 100 nitros/month. So, I had heart surgery 08/21/18. Then I had my 20 year old umbilical hernia fixed 12/6/18. I'm done with surgeries for a while.

    Of course, 30 years of smoking and hard living take their toll. I also have copd, diabetes, arthritis, bursitis, sciatica, etc. So recovery isn't as easy as it could be. Total recovery is, of course, impossible since copd is fatal.

    But I can walk 2 blocks without chest pain, and my guts arent falling out, so there's that. Lol.

    And OOOOF! Sorry you've had to deal with all that, but i have to say your attitude is fantastic considering. I know, you don't have a choice you're probably saying, but I see plenty of patients who go in the opposite direction and do poorly, so keep on keeping on.

    Damb Plat, you are one tuff mother to go through all that and still retain some semblance of a positive attitude. May I be that way when/if something as bad as that happens to me... but Iím not sure I will be. Iím definitely the angry complainer type when my health ainít so good.

    Hope your recovery continues and your condition improves as much as itís able to.

    It's not so much a positive attitude as it is various mental illnesses that are currently being treated with Zoloft...

    2015 lost my 55 year old step brother with perfect medical work up in Cornwall, NY. Dropped dead as he entered his home. Worked out everyday. Great shape. Corpotate lawyer, Purdue Pharma lead attorney. We talked often that the corporation was relinguishing underlings in accounting while placing more pressure on him as the signatory. Smart guy. Dead.

    Glad you're aware.

    I'm with Wetworks.

    Great cleavage.

    Holy crap--makes my minor problems look, well, minor.

    Still, sitting up and taking nourishment is good, as being able to ambulate. Sorry to hear about the shop misadventures. For some of us we're still in the "great Recession" I guess.

    Positive thoughts for recovery, man!
