Off topic Health Update

I just want to extend my thanks, again, to the Twin Galaxies community. I am back in the hospital today and had another successful cardiac procedure. This is my third procedure since my heart attack on 11/14/17.

The good news is that this should be it. Now I start on the road to recovery. I should be released from the hospital on either Friday or Saturday. I start Cardiac Rehab next week.

Thanks again for the support.

    Thanks for sharing Robert, will you be well enough to go and see Star Wars when it comes out in a couple of weeks?

    Most definitely a wake up call for many of us. I changed my eating and drinking habits since you posted about your heart attack.

    My best years are still to come. All games and no work. Hopefully many if them.

    Brothers and Sisters, please take care of your selves.

    Thanks for the update, glad to hear you are continuing on the right track. What exactly am I looking at in the pictures? What does rehab entail?

    I live it up once a week and eat as clean as I can the rest.

    Love You, Brother-I'm a nurse that doesn't have too much faith in our medical system, but it sounds like you are getting proper treatment.

    A side note to Random-Daddy's heart is pretty strong. He'll fight to be ok.

    They made me write down some “official” rehab goals. I am not ashamed to say that one is that the tip of my list!

    Both pics show my Left Anterior Descending coronary artery.

    The left pic shows before stents were placed, right pic shows after. My heart is now getting a lot more blood supplied to it. Hopefully this means it will keep on ticking!

    The Rehab is a controlled mix of monitored exercise and diet. Need to get exercise, but it needs to be done under monitored conditions for a while.

    I think this is a great mindset. We all need days where we can let loose a little. A 6/1 routine like you describe is great. The 6 clean days far outweigh the 1.

    Not sure if this slipped past you, but in the self-professed geek culture we live in...
    Stents?
    Now you're bionic!!! Awesome!!!
    (One of the jokes I use about my cochlear implants, haha!).

    Off-topicish, not sure if you have stumbled across this in your new hobby research-
    Tarantulas move in a very mechanical way, if you pay enough attention-their movement is based entirely on a hydraulic response, they push lymph into a limb to move it, and it "unmoves" because of the hydraulic pressure built up inside, like a piston-some refer to them as robotic, I think that is why.

    That's not as interesting as their breathing procedure(booklungs), but it does seem very biomechanical to me.
