Getting to the Heart of the Matter Again, Unfortunately

Almost seventeen months ago I had a mild heart attack, requiring a procedure in a local hospital. Despite what I thought were pretty good efforts to exercise and change my diet, it appears that I have another heart issue. On Thursday morning I will go back to the hospital for another procedure. If all goes as it should, I could potentially be back home for dinner and spend the night in my own bed. I certainly do not want to focus on the possibility of anything going wrong.

Although I am not exactly a young adult anymore (!), I certainly do not really feel like I am getting older until these nagging health issues pop up.

Here's to looking forward to posting the results on the flip side ...

Well, obviously, they hide all the ugly parts under the top layer. You see one of those laying around, you'd consider throwing it out.

Anticipating elective surgery is more worrisome than the procedure these days.

Relax further. We're planning a charity tournament to get you your own jar on Futurama.

Like a good Catholic guy, the morning starts with a trip to church for confession. The gambler in me definitely wants to hedge my bets ...

It was a bummer to read this. But, glad an issue was identified before it caused a heart attack or the like.

As your other friends have said, I'm looking forward to reading your post-procedure post.

Good luck!

Taking care of yourself this last year and a half will help immensely with the procedure. I'm sure you'll do fine and we'll hear about the cute nurse that did the shave prep a coupe days thereafter.

"Had a heart procedure this morning. Still alive and kicking! : o )"

Your tweet of 2 hours ago is reassuring.

You need to stare at more Boobs. It's a scientifically proven fact that it improves heart health! But I digress...I hope everything goes as it should. Good Luck and god speed.

Lightning, please note, it was PokahDave, and not I, who made the comment about staring at boobs. Just saying......

For some reason, the only person not wishing you well was sevencard2003. What a self obsessed fool.

Good luck and make a speedy recovery. Like the blog and hope to be reading it for many years to come.

@ NBShuffler71 -- You would not have expected Richard Burton or Sir Laurence Olivier to have played some bit part in a movie, would you? : o )
