PostSubject: Sorry....   November 5th 2010, 12:31 pm

havent been on much.... but should be back at full swing now...

ran into some medical issues....

was at work and my blood pressure skyrocketed... asked a buddy EMT/PARAMEDIC to take my blood pressure..170/112 .... he wanted to get me in a ambulance and get me to the hospital... thought maybe a heartattack
was comin or even a stroke with those high numbers...

made it thru the day and hit my doctor the next day... put me on blood pressure medication and others... and ran tons of tests thru the last couple weeks.....

he said from being a ex football player and boxer my heart is strong...no heartattack but blood pressure was way high.. (and losing my father at a young age and finding he had 2 heart attack in the year before he passed...but he never went in about em and didnt think it was anything but just heartburn...I was worried)

so went in for a heart stress test (run the threadmill)...most my size last about 5-10 mins on the tread mill runnin.. I did 15 mins... so heart looks good!! thumbsup

but also did a ultrasound on my organs/arteries and found I have a good size gall stone...so will have to get in and get the gallbladder removed...

good thing is...my blood pressure is now to a good level 110/75-120/80ish....
and I have lost very close to 20lbs now Rock On ...watching my diet and all...hoping to lose 40-50lbs!!

now have to come up with cash to pay the medical bills Sad ...which is going to be tough since barely makin it by now!!



and just found out my step granfather has been brought home from hospice and doesnt have very much time left...
been real stressful on my granmother...since she just lost my dad...and now her husband in such a short time...


so just been alot of stress with my medical..and figuring out how to pay the bills...and then have to pay for the gallbladder to come out... on top of the regular bills... and then to be there for my grandmother thru all this..
just been tough...and ALOT on my mind....


but wanted to give my CAMM family alittle heads up and wanted to let ya know whats up and where I been...
and should be on alot more again....and sorry havent hit last couple CAMM events....

but still here if you guys need a hand with your rides or photoshop or anything!

Love ya guys!
Chris/Dartboy

Glad you are okay Chris. That same thing happened to me last year and scared me to death! I seriously thought I was dying. I'm glad it turned out that you are okay.

Thanks for checking in. I was wondering where you have been lately. Don't be a stranger.
