I HAVE NEW PARTS!

In an attempt to keep you informed,( as well as a shameless attempt to grab some sympathy) I am writing this. For several months, now, I have not felt very well. Around the end of April, I had a slight episode with my heart that seemed to be not too serious. However, it seemed that I just couldn't recover from it. I was just forcing myself to do the things I had to do and then I would go straight back to bed(Maybe that's why I ain't been blogging much lately?). So, anyhoo, I went to a different cardiologist who quickly scheduled me for a heart catheterization. This past Wednesday, I went to Florida Hospital, in Orlando for the procedure. Turns out that one of my main coronary arteries was 80% blocked with bacon, pork chops, country ham, and not a small amount of fried shrimp. The good doctor opened up the artery and put in a shiny new stainless steel stent to help keep it open. According to him (the doctor), I will now feel like a new man. I'm excited about that prospect! Only, it hasn't kicked in just yet. I'll try to let you know when it does.

Mom said she doesn't think you look good. What does that mean?

I hope you feel better soon.

Here I thought this was going to be about one of your Chevys. Too bad. Well, at least you got shiny parts somewhere. Take it easy and get well.

Jeremy,
It means that nothing much has changed in that area of life.

Steve,
Thanks.

David,
The sad thing about all this is that I haven't felt like tinkering with the old cars for quite a while. I bought a '79 El Camino several months ago and haven't even put a picture on the blog. Now do you see how sick I am?

It's worse than I thought, then. Weaverus, come forth!

(Lame, I know. At least I didn't say "he stinketh.")

I'm glad you got your ticker tuned up and cleared out. Did the good doc see any of that nice juicy steak I watched you enjoy at T4G? Hope your back to your old self soon!

I know the emotions that go along with heart issues.

We'll keep you in our prayers and trust that you feel like a new man soon!
