#1: Public Service Announcement

Posted on 2006-07-22 06:17:26 by Dennis Peterson

Last year when I had a heart attack I realized I wasn't a kid any more
and wasn't near as impervious to health problems as I'd thought. It was
truly an eye-opener and in all honesty, a stressful process check. More
importantly, it scared the living bejeepers outta my wife. I had to suck
it up and realize I'd been sloppy about health issues. I don't smoke and
never have, I like a glass of wine with dinner, used to drink very
heavily but whupped that pup, but I haven't paid too much attention to
my general health. 'Til that heart attack. And that had to change.

I want my wife to have a partner for life and I want that partner to be
me. Lord knows she could do better. So in the time since my last perfect
day I've had a lot of poking and jabbing and noodling and exploring
done, and except for my heart I'm in pretty good shape for being
overweight and old as I am.

There was a lot of discomfort and indescribable loss of dignity at
having the specialists and their teeny-bopper assistants examine my
every orifice, appendage, and organ. I've been checked end to end, had
my lungs analyzed, blood pressure managed, diet overhauled, and more.

For all the misery and embarrassment I went through, all the results of
the tests, jabbings, probings and what all kept coming back - good. Very
good. Excellent.

But the real payoff was the tears in my wife's eyes when I finally got
to tell her I was going to be around for a very long time.

So here's the PSA: If you love your spouse then go get checked out while
there is still time to do something about any bad news, but mostly for
the happiness the good news brings. It's good for the heart.

Patty had been on my ass about a check-up. I went kickin' and fightin'
and was sure it was all a waste of everyone's valuable time. I'll
always remember the Doc tellin' me "We removed a couple of pre-cancerus
polyps. I've sent 'em off to be looked at, but I'm pretty sure they're
OK. I can tell you now, if you had waited another four years we would
have been having a completely different conversation."

Then there's Patty's "I told you so" bomb that I just know is going off
someday.

Good on ya Dennis, and good for your wife as well, but you really should
take care of you for yourself first, and everything else just kinda falls in
line.

After a heart attack in '95 with the quad bypass and a Pacemaker
installation this February I fully understand everything you wrote
above. The only thing I would add is to also have all your paper work
such as will, living will, etc. up to date and accessible. No one is
guaranteed tomorrow.

Good health to you and everyone reading this.

Yeah.....wife's been pestering me about making the
appointment for my colonoscopy's....been putting it off for
a year, just too damn busy with my first year of retirement
and all....&lt;sfsf&gt;

Couple years ago I was having some &quot;digestive distress&quot;,
took a trip to the ER.

Doc (in training) there told me I had
diverticulitis......gave me some stuff and sent me home. I
followed up with my own doc (as instructed) a couple days
later.

His comment was &quot;Bullshit, I saw the results of your last
colonoscopy......yer colon's smooth as hell....no
diverticuli........musta been frikkin food poisoning.&quot;.

wouldn't be a joke if it were. I hate explaining these things. ;-)

My grandfather was in his nineties and my father is currently 81 and still
carrying 50 lb bags of salt for his water softener into the house. Neither

booze and take up smoking.

You'll do anything for attention.

&gt; I realized I wasn't a kid any more

The only kid in here is Phil B... and he's not getting any younger.

Ok, this is wrong on so many levels; I had to bring it up somewhere. I
won't mention any names, because it's probably not legal where I come from,
but here it is:

I mentioned taking Lipitor a while back. Someone from RMH had a bottle with
a bunch left over after his doctor had changed his prescription; and he
asked if I wanted what he had left over that he was just going to shitcan.
I sed yes, and got them in the mail, in his container, with his script
information. I trust this individual (that's where the biggest nay-sayer's
are going to come from).

So here's the question... is there something to this that could be used in a

With husband being a recovered alcoholic drinking around him is

and he is a real party pooper.
I stopped drinking in 1984 and just started a little a few years ago.

You just set off so many Predator settings that the feds will probably be at
your door before this message.

But I agree that it's ridiculous to have to throw away useful medications
because a prescription changes. It's against federal law, though, to do
anything else with them.

Mouse had a pain prescription for her gnee. Doc prescribed some codeine
deriviative. Mouse is allergic to codeine. Gives her something that sounds
like what I remember crank bugs to be. No codeine for her. Doc is more than
happy to prescribe something else for her pain, but she has to return to the
doctor the unused drugs. No refund, no reimbursement for our co-pay, nada.

And it had been looking like such a mellow, mellow week end, too.

Well said, and an important message. Even at my age, I take
it very seriously. We have a very, very bad history of heart disease
in one side of my family, including members dying of heart attacks at
48, and even one at 35 (heavy smokers and bad diets for all of them,
of course...And the 35 year old was a physician...&lt;sigh&gt;).

Even at my age, my cholesterol was mildly high a few years
ago. Not high enough to worry about, but *only* because I'm young and
don't smoke. Right now, some supplements (non-prescription) seem to
have lowered it a little over the last year.

I'm still too young for the ol' finger wave test right now,
thankfully.

Definitely something to keep in check. Thanks for the
reminder, DP...

&gt;&gt; So here's the PSA: If you love your spouse then go get checked out while
&gt;&gt; there is still time to do something about any bad news, but mostly for
&gt;&gt; the happiness the good news brings. It's good for the heart.

My wake up call came in Sept '98 when I found out I'm diabetic
by having a meal heavy on carbohydrates, then a big berry flavor
milkshake a couple hours later... which resulted in my getting
light headed and falling off my Sporty (essentially passed out
due to very high blood sugar, just as people who use Insulin
can pass out due to low sugar if they take too much Insulin)

Didn't break anything (but did tweak my shoulder bad enough I
had to stop riding for awhile) but was a very rude way to find
out about the effects of extremely high blood sugar

Y'all take care riding... and take care of yourselves so you
CAN keep riding!

Steve's internist told him:

&gt; &quot;yer colon's smooth as hell&quot;

There's somethin' to brag about. &lt;g&gt;

&gt; Ok, this is wrong on so many levels; I had to bring it up
&gt; somewhere. I won't mention any names, because it's probably

&gt;
&gt; I mentioned taking Lipitor a while back. Someone from RMH had a
&gt; bottle with a bunch left over after his doctor had changed his
&gt; prescription; and he asked if I wanted what he had left over that
&gt; he was just going to shitcan. I sed yes, and got them in the mail,
&gt; in his container, with his script information. I trust this
&gt; individual (that's where the biggest nay-sayer's are going to come
&gt; from).
&gt;
&gt; So here's the question... is there something to this that could be
&gt; used in a positive way?
&gt; Maybe a &quot;Need for Meds&quot; page on thevirtualbarandgrill?
&gt;
&gt; Don't throw out those drugs, recycle them!

I think about that every 90 days when I spend $200 for another
bottle of anti-inflammatories for my fifteen-year-old Labrador
Retriever.

On one hand, I hope he uses _all_ of them, and on the other hand,
if he doesn't, then I hope someone else can use them.

And if the Gluchosamine/Chondroitin that I give him every morning
and evening works for him, I might start taking some o' that stuff
myself! &lt;g&gt;

I'm sure Big Red was very relieved too. And glad you got a clean bill
of health. Thanks for sharing the information, it's a good message for
sure. We spend so much time on vehicle and bike maintence because they
just won't go if we don't. Makes you wonder why we put off doing the
same for ourselves?
