Hey guys
Things have been sort of at sixes and sevens as the Brits say. I've been having some aggravations and will be going in for some cardiac surgery next week, dang it. I've missed your posts and meeting new folks. Hope everyone had a blessed Christmas and a nice new year. I haven't even had my rifle out since July. Isn't that a kick in the butt?

Good luck and a speedy recovery.
A little muzzleloader target shooting is good therapy.
I, too, had a little surgery yesterday. Had some skin cancer removed from my face. The doc took a chunk of meat out of my cheek. Then, three pretty girls hovered over me as one of them stitched me up like she was sewing a quilt.


Know what you believe in. Fight for your beliefs. Never compromise away your rights.

Here's health to you, Mountain Ranger! Maybe some pretty girls will hover near you, too.

Good luck and hope you have a speedy recovery. I know you'll do better then I did. Mine turned out to be gas, that was 20 years ago and I still have it.

Thank you all for your kind thoughts and wishes. I went through the catheterization which was a complete failure. I have two arteries that are completely blocked. My doc has referred me to his partner who he says 'has all the neat toys' to possibly accomplish getting into, then putting stints in. There was also a hint of having to do a bypass, dang it. Looks like I'll probably get to go through this again in February. *Good Grief*

I also have a new med... a long lasting Nitroglycerin taken daily, so that should help with the chest pains.

Am hanging in there though! When I get the OK to drive again I'm going to try to sneak out to the range to take ole 'one shot' out to put a few balls downrange. That will be good for morale for both of us!

Y'all keep your noses to the wind.

I recently underwent open heart surgery to replace my aortic valve. The good news is that recovery can be complete and you can get back to your favorite activities.
To be honest, recovery is trying and uncomfortable, but that is only for the first short period after the surgery.
Now, I am working with a personal trainer and almost have my strength back.
My cardiac Surgeon:

I wish you a fast and speedy recovery.

Well it's February, so here's some prayers that they can stint you instead of the full monte. My oldest Brother in Law had stints put in..., really makes a difference and they're getting better at it all the time.

Hope they get you straight! Heck, cut one end off your powder measure and have them use that for the stent, talk about black powder in your veins!!
