    Roy, take care of you. I am really glad yall weren't hurt anymore than just what happened. Sorry about the truck. It was beautiful but it can be replaced. You and your grandson cannot.

        I'm sorry to hear about the heart attack but glad to hear you and your grandson are both ok, relatively speaking. If you need anythint let us know, if you were in Vegas I'd offer bring you dinner.

        I'm glad you have the outlook on getting a second chance, its the same one I had. While I didnt have a heart attack, but I did have emergency heart surgery when I was 22, just 6 months after my son was born, and was back in the hospital 2x that year for complications. Take your time healing up, be strong, and enjoy every moment you have with the family.

        Glad to hear you’re doing better Roy. Time to get well and put yourself first.

        That was a serious crash on top of the cardiac event. It could have been worse.

        Please keep us updated when you have the time and feel like it. We all want to know how you’re doing.

        YR

        Get well soon Roy. I know you are somewhere around my age (63) and getting over a lick like that takes longer than it used to. I hate it got destroyed, but the Big Dodge did it's job protecting you and Buckethead. I'm certain the 2 of you will ride again another day. Take care, and take the time to heal up from the crash....and especially the heart attack.

            I thought I would take a moment to update everyone. I’m feeling better everyday the worst part is the chest pain. From what I understand what I’m feeling it the result of the CPR. Even when done properly , it is normal to crack/break ribs. I know this from 33 years as a firefighter. This iis just the first time I’ve experienced from the receiving end. When I have to cough it is pure torture. But it beats the alternative. Thanks for all the calls and well wishes.

              Glad you're healing... :thumbsup:

              Maybe think of naked women when you cough to distract you from the pain.... banana-hit.gif

              If that doesn't work, have someone kick you in the nuts.... nutkick.gif

                  My mother in law was in a bad accident last fall... She was in ICU for three months, broke all of the ribs on one side and a few on the other... I could see the pain in her face when we visited her and the nurses had to rotate her in the bed so she wasn't sitting on the same position for too long...

                  I know it's painful, stay tough...

                  I guess the best advice I can give you is try not to cough... (Captain Obvious....)

                      Very best to ya. Follow doctor's orders. A friend of our family, now gone, had TWO major open heart surgeries in his mid 70's He lived to be a ripe old age 1917--2010, he was NINETY THREE. Christ he was in his mid to late eighties used to drive all over hell to go to farm related equipment auctions.......just for fun.

                              I had open heart surgery 10+ years ago..... Anyways, they gave me a firm pillow, and told me, if I had to cough, or sneeze, hug the pillow tightly... It still hurts but it does help.
                              Hope you recover soon!!
