Make ya laugh. My wife on her way out to work said "I'd suggest yoga, but you'd take about 2 minutes of it, get bored and be off taking something apart."

Man are you guys some toothpicks.* I'd have to cut off a couple of limbs to get down to ~175.* Last time I checked I was in the 240 range.
Oddly, I had you pictured as a little bitty guy.

Re: How healthy is your lifestyle?

I have a little bitty guy, but I just put him to bed.

I've always pictured you as a guy I used to know that seems a lot like you. Looks like snidely whiplash with a perm and the ends snipped off the handlebar mustache.

I've always done my best to avoid picturing both of you.

Re: How healthy is your lifestyle?

I'm on my way to have an angiogram to check on the coiling job they did on my brain anuerysm three years ago. If it looks good I won't have to have another for five years.

I hate to say it but it beats a day at the office ...

Re: How healthy is your lifestyle?

Oh Helen, I think I would rather go to work. Especially since I am sitting here goofing off right now.

Good luck on the procedure.

Yes John, I'm roughly the size of your average linebacker. Well, a somewhat pudgy linebacker.

I could lose ~20lbs. Put the baby in my baby backpack and took a 5 mile walk with him last night. He's a lot better than those little ankle weights for giving you a little bit of a workout.

Thanks, Martha ! I enjoy your posts !!!!

Well, it's not a bad procedure. They gave me a valium type drug via IV and a heated blanket. It's kind of like crawling back into the womb :

I was hoping I could put this behind me for a while, but it looks like the aneurysm isn't completely sealed. It's slowly growing at the base. So, I have to go back for another angiogram in 3 years.

The good news is that they now have brain stents, so he can stent it then pack more coiling in. The coiling procedure is pretty close to a painless procedure, not much different than the brain angiogram. And, I don't have to take any medication and it is totally symptomless.

Todays findings are not the worse news I could have had. He said there is very little risk of a burst at this point. We just need to keep an eye on it and do another coiling procedure when the time comes.

You'd think with all the metal in my head I could get better reception on the cell phone !!!
