We have officially decided my wife and I are coming. I'm sending the registrations right now.

Super!

Stay Healthy Del.  Watch the blood thinners, those scare me as much as a heart attack. 

Later

Me too, but badly needed for the time, my Drs goal are to get me off them as soon as possible.  I had another episode last night, not as bad as the one Saturday morning but we woke up the neighbors aganin and the EMT's and the ER people as well as the Cardio Dr assured me  that calling 911 was the right thing to do.  It was not a heart attack but unchecked could have went either way.   It was not acid reflux and likely none of my acid reflux problems over the last couple have been acid reflux, taking that med and them going away right away was luck, not a fix.   
they upped my meds, monitored me and sent me home early afternoon, there should be nitroglycerine waiting on my porch in the morning so I don't have to call 911.    The long term plan is to get down to just the low dose aspirin but until then as things work themselves out the only options is the blood thinners or a redo and I'm not really wanting to do that again, will if I have to, but it would make me very grumpy.   Being field dressed sucks.

The problem was confirmed the day after Thanksgiving and suspected the week before, I was going to save this picture to show up there but I'll show it now, this was Sept 14th in almost 90 degree heat at an event, my friends were worried when I sat down but I assured them that I was fine and only having acid reflux and some cold tea would help, it did or so I thought it did, so I went back to cooking, my Okie buddy was taking pictures and just happened to take it.   

I showed it to a couple of the cardio Drs. and they are all of the opinion that I am not having an acid reflux problems, and this happened a couple times last year at the muster while you were shooting and like this day i sat out about 15 minutes and went back at it.   My surgeon told me I'm a tough old Coot, not sure if that or damn dumb, don't matter I wished up.  They are very sure I will be back up to snuff by next year, most likely by fall when I have my first event.   i won't have it any other way, Rehab starts again Monday, I wanted to head up there on Monday or even Sunday but it ain't going to happen, as soon as I get the OK I'm going to try to build up to walking 2-3 miles a day, I was up to a mile and a half in March and then got hit by that mild pneumonia and had to stop and cardio rehab had to stop also due to the whatever it is.

Hey Del, you're doing pretty good.  Just stick to plastic or wooden spoons for a while, no knives.  I was on thinners for a month and doing leather work.  Not necessarily my best idea....

Looks like I should be able to get away from work for the Muster. Got a new sub at for my route, finally got one I think might work out. Going to try and do what we did before, get a room at the Rodeo Inn, and commute to the shoot. Got no answer on their phone this evening, will try again in the morning.

Went to two appointments today, adjustment to the meds is working and I feel better, I may have had a mild heart attack last Saturday morning, if I did I pulled it off because after reviewing all the test results Heather says there is no damage from it if I did, likey the EMT's Nitro stopped it as it was actually happening because there was a flutter of some sort on the EKG in the ambulance that was gone by the time I got to the EG.  Still looks very good for a full recovery, made one hard decision I was afraid I'd have to make, I will not be training one last bird dog due to I have decided I have no business out tramping by myself.  A bit hard because he showed more raw potential than any of the others, no matter, got a good friend out of the deal.  As my one friend says, he is a handsome Lad.

Did go to the basement today and saw that pile of iron, going to be hard because wanted to pack Sunday and be up on site monday. :-[

If anyone has a 1901 Krag hand guard they don't mind parting with, could you bring it to the muster if you are going?

    Jack and I are planning a fairly early departure tomorrow AM,  should arrive before noon.  Would you and your sidekick like a cinnamon roll from The Sweet Shop in St. Paul?  Jack and I don't want you drooling on ours!
