Did you have symptoms that were tied to the blockage? How did you decide to get it checked? I think I'm at a point where I need to start paying attention to that sort of thing.
Sometimes, I would find myself out of breath for simple things. Then I started hyperventilating while laying in bed. Then I would be good for a week.

I had booked a trip to New Orleans for this week. I decided that I didn't want to go and have problems away from home so I went to get checked before this week.

The EKG was abnormal so they scheduled more tests for last week. They saw a defect in my heart and scheduled an angiogram with the warning that they would fix anything that was clogged more than 70%. Once they got in they found that the defect was 95% clogged. They cleaned it out and inserted a stent. The only real problem for me is that they went through my right arm so I'm limited with it. I was awake for the whole thing which was weird. I could feel the stuff moving around in my arm and chest but it didn't hurt.

If you're out of breath from doing basic stuff that you normally do, get checked. I would not have suspected that it was as bad as it was. If you feel tightness in your chest, an EKG wouldn't hurt. They're not invasive. The other tests are, but worth it.

It ain't even halftime and I'm over the 2L mark.....this is gonna be a rough one.
Beer is too light for this crap. I'm not blaming....we have no starter quality (and in some cases no second string quality) skill position players on offense due to injury. But it's still hard to watch I need to feel like i am really doing some damage to my liver

I'm a forward thinker.....I look at the damage 20 years from now. I don't have 20 years left so by the time the damage shows up I'll be long dead from a heart attack or getting run over by a bus. I will not be able to donate organs though....they will be well used

You don't understand....you know those religious fanatics that flog themselves? Well I am flogging my liver as penance for the sins of the New Orleans Saints offense

The only difference I really see between this offense and the offense from back in the day is at least back then we had Morten Anderson.

The only saving grace is that I have Knox...the tight end for the Bills in a fantasy football money league

We gonna need the ml's to know just what we're dealing with
At this point I have no idea what I am dealing with

Let's put it this way...I'm to the point where I am actually grateful for spellcheck
