Like General MacArthur, I Shall Return...
 
Folks:

I am going to be “off the air” for a short while. On Thursday, 14 April, I will enjoy the thrill of a cardiac catheterization on the advice of two physicians. You can probably discern the real reason behind their recommendation here; they want to find out if I really do have a heart!

In January of this year, I had a head-to-toe physical – with some other invasive and not so enjoyable examination processes too. I can summarize what the conclusions were in non-medical terminology for you in the following way:


I am old and I am fat. I have the opportunity to change one of those things.


Since January, I have lost 25 lbs; don’t worry, there’s plenty more where that came from. And I have been exercising and doing lots of things that I know are good for me but I wasn’t doing nearly enough of them. The cardiac catheterization is exploratory because an echocardiogram result was not exactly the way the textbooks say it ought to be.

This is an outpatient procedure and in 95% of the cases, the patient goes home and sleeps in his own bed that night. I'm told by others who have had this procedure done that the recovery challenge is in your groin where they insert the catheter into the femoral artery. Supposedly, that healing process makes walking "uncomfortable" for several days. Whatever...

I’ll probably be "up and running" again sometime during the week of 18 April. Talk to you then…

I wish you a speedy recovery...looks like Daseal will have to step into the primary role of "Redskin Realist" whilst you're away

Are you up to it Daseal? Do you have what it takes?

No one can replace the SC. No one.

Good luck! Having been under the knife a few times, I know those damn tubes can make things uncomfortable afterwords. Relax and get well.

Best of luck to you, SC! I'm sure they'll find a heart in there somewhere-- they'll just find one that ticks to the beat of a different drummer!

My mom had a heart catheterization a year or so ago, and she's doing fine now. One of my mom's cousins has had something like nine of them done, and she's still up and about and doing okay.

My mom did have some difficulty with a pretty bad hematoma where they inserted the catheter. That was, according to her, the worst part of the recovery. It just depends on how careful the medical techs/nurses are when they do the catheterization and when they remove it. If they do it correctly, there shouldn't be that much bruising.

Anyway, best wishes SC, and I look forward to seeing your well-argued, contrarian viewpoint gracing our forums again soon! :biggthump

I'll add my best wishes to those already listed and the many yet to come.

The forum will miss you, thankfully SKINZ_DOMIN8 will step up in your place.

Be well bro.

Good luck, Sports. We'll have to try to keep our unbridalled enthusiasm in check while you're gone! Thankfully, all the skins news seems bad right now, so we won't get carried away.

Feel better soon!

Good luck SC, if you ask nicely they may even cut you open and carve 36 on your heart. So Mr. Taylor always stays close!

Seriously though, I hope you recover quickly and you're back by draft time!

That's absolutely the truth!
Even if I wanted to try, TAFKAS, I have a big test next week!
