First of all I just want to apologize to all of my friends here for not giving any notice on the cancellation of my account. As part of a contingecy plan my son was supossed to cancel all the accounts on the left side of my accounts list if anything were to happen to me. Well he cancelled accounts on both sides of the list.

The anything that happened was a trip to the hospital for me. I was having trouble breathing and had pains in my chest. The last thing I remember was pulling up to the emergency room and putting the car in park. I woke up with my family around me and tubes sticking out of my nose and mouth and a couple of ivs. My left lung had collapsed.

After 3 weeks in the hospital the doctors could give me no explanation on the cause. They did tell me I have asthma, sleep apnea, high blood pressure, diabetes, and high colesterol. One doctor upon finding out my daughters b-day is April 4th bluntly said that if I didn't lose weight soon I wouldn't see her next b-day in 2009. He said pretty much said lose the weight or die. I'm currently 250#, he wants me to lose 10#s per month through December, starting April 1st. That'd put me at 160#. The doctors claimed that with the weight loss, the colesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes would most likely go away. They said the sleep apnea and asthma would be easier to deal with also, and that the sleep apnea may dissappear all together.

So, with one more week of taking a pound and a half of meds every day I'll jump into a workout program and eat a little more proper.

It's great to be back and I hope to talk to all of you soon.

I am so glad you are doing as well as can be expected. What's nice for you now is it's warming up in Ohio and you can walk outside. Less boring than a tread mill. Take care of yourself, and do what the doctor says. And keep us up to date on how you're doing.

I'm glad to see you back and that you're ok.

Your doctor is right...I've walked the path you're on...I started in 2004 and lost 90 lbs. My BP leveled out and my diabetes didn't progress to full blown.

In 2007 my life went to hell in a hand basket and I regained 25 lbs and got off my exercise program...my BP has shot up and so has my blood sugar level. I'm now on BP meds for the first time in my life and I refuse to take anything for diabetes as it is only on the high side of borderline and I know I can reverse them both by finishing loosing the weight I intended to lose from the beginning and getting back to exercising.

Even if they don't know why your lung collapsed, just see it as a blessed warning sign to get you going to being healthier. You will definetely breath better when you get the weight off....your whole body will feel better.

Good luck to you...I'm sure you'll have a cheering section here. Let us know how you're doing as you travel this new road.

Good to see you back and sorry for your adversity. You were missed and many people openly wondered what had become of you. While you were away there was a major war of words that raged nonstop for about a week and a half. AMD management finally got involved and cleaned things up. You can contact canu for more details if you want. It has been strangely quiet since then, but many good folks left.

I am SO glad to see you back!!!

I am also so sorry to hear about your problems; damn...it sounds like it was a true close call, but clearly you are not one to "go quietly into the night". Hell yeah! And I believe you can do what needs to be done so your will be around to fully enjoy your daughter's next birthday! Plus, we're here to back you up and support you!




I - and others - did not forget you or your contribution to AMD. Oh sure, when I saw you were gone I said "fuck it!" to posting sexy blogs on Saturdays...but our beloved Professor Borty nugded me...and so Sexy Saturday lives on...ALL BECAUSE OF YOU!!! Ah, you did, indeed, have an affect on people here...You belong here, dear - and it's so good to have you back!
