Well as I mentioned a few weeks ago, I fell and sprained an ankle. That wasn't about shit......A week back on 2-6, I got to feeling real bad after getting out of the shower. Opened the restaurant, felt worse and worse so drove the 8 miles to the hospital.
Bnag! Heart attack. Been in Baylor St Luke's ever since. Double bypass. Got the best heart surgeon on the planet, Dr Charles Hallman who took over for Denton Cooley 20+ years ago.

So I'm alive and kicking. Hope to be home in a few days for the rehab.

Y'all get those stress tests scheduled, this shit is no fun.......More when I can

Glad to still have you around. :p
The docs do what they can but they do not have a crystal ball.
If My heart were an inning, the Dr's would have struck out.
Take her easy a bit and than you gotta do what ya gotta do.

Sorry about this but it gives you the right to be grumpy, demanding, annoying, and lazy all day long.
Wish you a very speedy recovery and back home soon.

It ain't just for old people, 2 of my childhood friends (they are brothers) had a heart attack each by the time they were 39. One was in pretty decent shape, avid wakeboarder, standup jet skier, dirt bike rider and mountain bike rider 5-6 miles a day, actually he was just finishing up a ride and was just a few doors down from his house when he had his heart attack. Both lived and are doing good. @Old Texan hope you make a quick recovery.

Well shit! Glad you got the situation handled, and you're happy with the service. Take a breather, take a rest. Customer service and retail isn't some walk in the park. Get well soon!

extended play! thank goodness! as mentioned previously, good of u to listen to the body telling you something not right! PSA, don't hesitate to call for help, there sometimes isn't time to question what your body is telling you.

Im sure you feel 10 time better already, but take the time to heal up. Get some rest, all my best, get well.
