  1. may you find peace and THANKS for posting here. We will all be missing you.

  2. Hey there Bear! Just stopped by to check up on you. I see I missed seeing you online by only a couple days. Hope you are doing ok!


  3. Ok folks. I’m back even though you did not knew I was gone. . I was at dialysis on Wednesday. Suddenly had a sharp pain across my chest. Felt like a football helmet hitting me full tilt. I was immediately taken off the machine and put on a EKG machine and taken to the ER. Nice place to crash, right in the hospital. . Wednesday continued with CAT Scan, Echo Cardiology and X-Rays of heart and lungs. Results- negative damage. Then a fine breakfast of latex scrambled eggs, lousy coffe, a really nice blueberry muffin and a bowl of pretty good oatmeal. Daughter brought food. Thursday continu
  5. Get some ice creepers for your shoes or boots. If you have ever tried walking on an icy luge run we jokingly refer to as walkways or driveways, you'll appreciate those little steel teeth keeping you upright. Stock up on those little hand heaters. They work well in a bed or sleeping bag. Hand cranked radio will save on batteries. Many radio stations were on the air during our big Ice Storm. They had generators and volunteers coming in helping clear ice. Some of the radios have flashlights also. Batteries!! Flashlights for everybody. If you plan to use the so called Space Blanke
  6. Muslim Brotherhood and all the other extremist groups run by Iran are hoping that Egypt swings to extremism and they know Israel will not stand for that next door to them and will take action. Then the whole Middle East erupts in a renewed Jihad against Israel. If you don't think that will not effect oil prices and supply and cause a major upset in the world then you need to start paying attention to the news.
  7. I'll just stock up at the yard sales starting Dec 22, 2012
  8. Acessing the net right now from the apartment. :-)
  9. Do not go back to work on that hip. See the specialist first. You may jepordize your case by returning to work. The Workman's Comp should be assigning you a case manager who is usually a nurse to help you with your medical appointments and arranging any therapy. Youmay be eligible for up to 7 years of salary compensation while out of work. In my case I drew the entire 7 years and worked with my nurse case manager. He was extremely helpful and even though he was employed by the carrier his first duty was to me the patient. May not be as nice depending on the carrier. Your state s
  10. Finally home and feeling well. Dyalisis isn't as bad as I thought. Although I wondered if they were driving the big needles to the vein and artery or if they were looking for Chilean miners. So now I have to have regular dyalisis every Monday - Wednesday and Friday forever. Also unfortunately this means I have to live in Bangor near the Dyalisis center for 5 days a week and only come home weekends. That's the rough part, being away from my Sweetie, Mrs. Bear. Her job allows a lot of free time though so I foresee many long trips. Thanks to all for kind words and thoughts. Much appr
  11. I titled this after the movie because of the end of it. Going right off the edge of a cliff. On Tuesday I laid down with a headache and slept for a few hours. I awoke with my head spinning and severe nausea. Ended up in an ambulance and the local ER. The stabalized me and transferred me to the larger hospital in Bangor. My glucose meter read over 500 and after insulin treatment I stabalized. The thing I have been avoiding for 4 years is now a reality. I had two dyalisis treatments and am scheduled 3 days a week. I spent 3 days in the hospital and am now home. Feeling much bett
  12. Contrary to popular belief, I was NOT poking around Madison's room!! My spirit was there, but it hung out mostly at the range and the dinner table :-)
