Re: Lucky Escape Last Week, and then some.

SWR:

You are really lucky. Glad to know everything turned out okay.

After I read your post, it brought to mind that television commercial showing a middle-aged guy with his wife hanging on his back. The wife won't let go until he sets up an appointment to get a colonoscopy for colon cancer prevention.

You are also really lucky to have a "nagging" wife who is concerned about your health and welfare! This could be one of many reasons why they say married people usually live longer than single people!

Re: Lucky Escape Last Week, and then some.

I think that considering Shok's recent medical emergency, all the bawdy talk and sexual innuendo should be kept to a minimum for awhile. This means no Jurassic beavers , no Big Wally, yadda yadda yadda. So are we all in agreement here? Nah...I didn't think so.

Nope, below 40 is the threshold. Now if you are a mega athlete, it can drop to 40. The nurse said she never saw below 44 ever. Below 40 accompanied by some kind of dizziness.

Well, that may be explainable. Either going to see a heart doctor or being in front of a hot nurse would probably raise your pulse by 50%.

Re: Lucky Escape Last Week, and then some.

SWR,

Thanks for the heads up, and best of luck as you recover.
- But, keeping your life will no doubt come with a price. "I was right about your heart, wasn't I?? So why won't you listen when I tell you you should have turned left at the Shell station!"

Toejam,
- I thik there might be some disagreement about whether married people live longer-or if it just seems like longer.

Yeah, tech is cool, but I bet SWR would trade places with you in a heartbeat-- so to speak.
