I Want to be Very Clear Here…LOL


Sounds like someone…

When I was a kid growing up in a Catholic grammar school…every year that school Started in September and with in a few weeks….It was time to start taking Orders for the School Christmas Cards, wrapping paper, ribbons and Gifts…

The neighborhood was flooded with Catholic School Kids…selling this stuff…same stuff every year. The Parents and Relatives ALL had to Buy…

I seen also an Ad on the Back Page of a Comic Book that you could Earn Money Selling the Same Stuff…
So I signed up for this and was soon EARNING some Good Money for a Kid 12 or 13 years Old…
One year I did make over $150…Did this till I was about 16…

I think it was about the 6th or 7th Grade that I seen an Ad in the NEW TV Guide for Delivery Boys…I started doing this till I went to High School…

In High School (Freshman Year) 9th Grade, I worked in the Cafeteria Kitchen washing Trays on my Lunch Hour…(Free Lunch all you could Eat)My lunch money my parents gave me was better off in my pocket.

When your 15 in Highs School Summer the only Jobs around are Cutting Grass…Sooo…

But when I turned 16..Real Money…I started working a REAL Job…PAYING TAXIES and EVERY THING…

Let me Interject a NOTE of Wisdom from my Father here…He Said:
“If your going to do a Job, do It well enough that you have NO Fear of putting your Name on IT.”
These are words that I have tried to Live By…

So now at 64, I have been on SSI for 9 years do to Damage to my Elbows and other parts of my Body…

The longest I had ever been Unemployed was about a Month and a Half…Just before I went into the Navy for a Second Time…

I have worked in a few Different Fields and Job Titles…Have been a Union Member and Boss…I am an Engineer…

I have Enjoyed my Work/Learning Experience and have been Proud to PUT My Name on Many Pieces of Work…

OhGod/OhGod/OhGod Part #2…Or Taser me Bro…


Or Taser me Bro…

On September 28th, my 64th Birthday went in to see my Primary Care Doctor @ the VA Hosp.
When the Nurse checked my Vital Signs BP-Pulse-Temp. and listened to my Heart…

It seems that my BP-Pulse was well below Normal also my Temp. and she said my Heart sounded like a Cheep Coffee Grinder…

Wile I had been Waiting I was Hungry, so I had a Large Chocolate Candy Bar…At a little after 11AM…   (this is Important)…

I was RUSHED too the Emergency Room…

It seems that I was in the Middle of Heart Arrhythmia…brought on by the Loss of Blood from the GI Bleeding…the build up of Fluids in my Legs and Stomach area…

This was at about 12:30-1:00 PM, Lunch time…they Wanted to Jump Start my Heart then but the Guys from Cardio said not to…the only thing I had in my Stomach was (drum roll) the Large Chocolate Candy Bar…they had already shaved part of my Chest and had something plastered there and some thing on my back…had a Hart Monitor on, EKG hook-ups, IV’s…So they sent me up to CCU to be monitored till the Chocolate was out of my System…Seems the  Chocolate has an Effect on the Hart. So a little after 11PM on the Night of my Birthday…I was Jump STARTED not that bad of a Jolt…I’ve been Hit with Higher Volts.

So the next few days were spent being Monitored for the Heart…and they started to Figure out what was causing my Rectal Bleeding, Stomach and Leg Swelling…Low Blood Volume and Low Potassium…

It seems that I am suffering from  Lower Colon Syndrome…Extreme Inflammation…All this ties together with the Heart…The Low Blood Vol. knocks the Heart out of  Synchronization also causes the Fluids to Build up to replace the shrinking of the Blood Vessels…and this can be linked back too the Diverticulitis and the Hematoma…

And Boys and Girls How did we Find out about this…? Can we Say “COLONOSCOPY” they only did a partial this time ‘I will go in for a FULL one SOON’….

I am on the mend…feeling Stronger everyday and Thanking GOD Everyday….
