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.
