  2. Friday morning 5/24/24 at 7:30 am while at work I started feeling lots of chest pain and thought it might be heartburn so I tried to get my day going. Within a few minutes I started feeling sweaty and the pain got worse. I have been thru this before so I went in to my Bosses office and sat down and told him I couldn't do my job the way I was feeling because it wasn't safe. about 2 minutes later I asked him to please call 911 and I took a nitro tab and removed my dress shirt. "Didn't want it cut off me". Lucky for me the Fire Department is only about 10 blocks straight down the street and before he was off the phone we could hear the sirens. The Paramedics ran a tape on me and told me I was having a Massive Heart Attack and transported me the 1/2 mile to the hospital ER where I stayed for about 10 minutes. Time is crucial in this sort of shit. I was in the Operating room is less than 20 minutes from the 911 call and the Dr.'s spent the next 2.5 hours working on bring me back. From what I have learned so far I had a "Plaque Rupture" in my Aorta meaning the plaque rupture the blood vessel wall and caused a major blockage to the main flow of blood to my heart and also sent clots into the lower chamber. They were able to put in a Stent and break up most of the clots while in the Cath Lab without having to cut open my chest. I sent the next 24 hrs. in ICU because they had to give me a Heparin IV to quickly thin my blood so the clots would break up rather then travel to my brain and cause a Stroke. The next 2 days were in CICU to monitor my recovery. Needless to say my Wife was frantic about seeing me like this and in much worse shape then before during my previous attacks. Good news is both my other Stents are just fine but this new one is in a major area. I had quit smoking cigs 14 months ago because of the last one but my body just makes plaque regardless of what I eat or do. I am now home where I am much more comfortable and with the love of my life and if I keep getting better I can return to work within 14 days or so? However it is hard to keep my stress level down when all I can think about is the medical bills that will start arriving soon and the money I am not making while at home resting. The thought of us losing our home among other things is driving me crazy right now. I would rather leave this earth with her having our home and some savings than to be here and her become homeless. If you smoke please stop, if you eat poorly please try to eat better and if you don't exercise at least try to walk 30 minutes a day. Do this not for yourself "it will help you" but do it for those who love you and cherish you. Tell those you love those words as often as possible because you never know what your final words to them might be or when you might not come home from work. Peace and LOVE to you all.

    I use my 4k 65" ROKU TV for gaming. Has a gaming mode with remarkably low input lag. It's about 6' away. I have it mounted on a stand with casters, so I turn it 90° to play at my desk & turn it back to plop in my bed & enjoy watching movies & YouTube. It's a TCL 65R625. They make a good product at a fair price point.

  16. This streamer is a Scammer! I subscribed to him so he wouldn't shoot me (what kind of sell out kills people that give them $1.50) and then he told me it was $500!!

  20. After having carefully watched the stream, I have come to the conclusion that he is indeed a hacker.

  21. Today’s Weed’s 67th Birthday so I decided I’d make a Rhubarb cake with cinnamon sugar topping. Delicious served with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. I’m adding 2 pictures one of the actual cake straight out of the oven but the plate with the ice cream is from last years bake.

  26. So sorry to hear about this but you are very lucky. Most people do not survive such an episode. Its important to get better first before making yourself sick worrying about the money. Maybe you can finance the bill over time or arrange for a loan. Wait to see what it is before panicking then see what your options are. The guys on the forum may have some good ideas about how to deal with the bills. You never know what a bunch of idiots could up with.
