One Year Ago ...
« on: September 15, 2009, 11:26:41 PM »
Sept 15th, 2008 ... the date of my heart attack ... so, after 7 flatlines, defib'd, CPR'd, 3 months of CardioRehab, and 9 months of running my way into 61 pounds of weight loss ... I've lived ...

Went for a stress test last month, but beat it - and, they couldn't finish it.  They couldn't get my heart rate up high enough.

Went for a retake of that test today, and ALMOST beat it again --- but, finally got my heart rate up where they wanted it.

So, here I sit today with a stent (at least they told me they put one in - I have no proof ... LOL), weighing in at less than 200 pounds for the first time in 20 years, and down to a size 36 for the first time in 20 years.

I'm doing better than I'd expect --- to be honest, it's better than I've been in at LEAST 20 years.

I do want to thank Randy Z for encouraging me through this running thing.  I look forward to the day we actually do get to meet face-to-face.

And, thanks to all you guys!

Got my entire stress test result back ...

less than .5% (POINT 5) damage from the heart attack ... 0% remaining blockage ... "it's as if you never had one" ... chance of reoccurence: LESS THAN 1%

I'm a gladiator!  An incredibly giddy gladiator!

People who think they know it all really annoy those of us that do.

Swore I posted but guess not.

Way to go Tony. You've come a long way. Keep up the great work and healthy habits. But please don't take anymore ducks out.
