Just checkin in.....

Post by dasmokeryaget » Thu Jul 11, 2019 2:53 am

Just returned from Spring outages at the nukuler
Lectricity Makin factories in South GA and MI in June. Long cold as a bastard spring in Michigan.

I got back in early June.

I feel blessed that I was even able to work. Last fall I took a modersackle trip through the Badlands, The Black Hills, Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse Memorial and all that good stuff, camping out along the way.

I noticed I was feeling weak and winded, so I came back home, making it back just before Tgiving.

I started having fevers, chest pain and I couldn't breath. Long story short, they found an infection in around my lungs (not in). At the same time I was having hiatal hernia problems and an ulcer. Ended up in ER twice and they sent me to a cardiologist.

She set me up for emergency, stress test, sonogram and CT scan that day. Drs were convinced I could have a heart attack any moment. Enlarged heart, fluid, all the signs of immediate heart failure.

By the time I went for all the tests I was feeling no pain, I could breath etc. Every last test came out negative. Drs called it a miracle. I think so. All the credit goes to God.

Two weeks later I was released to go back to work.
Both nuclear plant outages happened to be more strenuous than the usual. Lots of scaffold climbing, very hot conditions, highly stressful etc.

I haven't had any sign of trouble.

Right after I got home, tornado hit my town and a micro burst took out three huge trees in the yard. I've been running chainsaws and splitting huge trunks for fire wood, nonstop mowing all that. Plus doing a lot of vehicle, tractor and mower maintenance and repair.

Otherwise, I've been taking some time to do some recording, relaxing with a pipe, a few modersackle rides and some fishing. I'll be putting out some new music soon.

My bird up and died suddenly but the dog and the wife are fine.

So what the heck has everyone else been doing?

Howdy, good to see you again. I was here back in 2011 using the name Stan. You mailed me some PS LBF. I'm glad that the Lord healed you and glad to see you.

So, basically you're just hanging out and being lazy all the time? :)

I'm grateful you're well. I thought of you recently as I smoked an Alpha freehand that showed up at my door out of nowhere a few years ago.

Good to hear you're in better health. A road/camping trip through the Badlands, etc, sounds amazing.

Bucket list item. Do it. Preferably in the fall.
