Heart surgery tomorrow ends my projects
They are putting in a new valve through the aorta unless things go south I’ll be recuperating over a couple days. Docs didn’t like the look of the spine damage due to wear and tear plus the rollover crash when I was run off the road by the drug cooking neighbor. Over the summer my projects have been stripped of many parts by his thieving buddies. Our place will be for sale either way as I won’t be able to do anything myself. Even video of one of them trespassing and stealing the wiring harness and parts from my Comanches wasn’t enough to have him trespassed. They are making life hell for everyone in the area.
This time I’m not bouncing right back, but whatever happens there will be a pile of bills and everything that they have stolen from my family and others keeps these crack roaches alive (auto incorrect changed the word, but it seems fitting)
Now our lives of work are reduced to near zero and my wife (who recently had her own health issues to deal with) has a pile of bills to deal with.

best wishes Carnuck, doesn't sound like much can get you down, but if you're struggling please know that we're (i'm) thinking of you.

I know what it's like to be in bad health and I feel for you. It sucks to not be able to do all the things you once could, I'm still adjusting.

Good luck on the surgeries and heal fast!

Wishing you a speedy recovery, I always enjoy your sense of humor and your broad knowledge.

Are you getting a mechanical or a "natural" valve? open chest or TAVR? sounds like a TAVR...

Too bad about the noxious neighbors, it is always terrible to have to endure the pilfering from known people

Going for the tavr. Hopefully they won’t have to crack me open.

Sorry to hear about the surgery- I hope all goes well. Here”s to a speedy recovery!

Great news, no chest busting needed, it is like a stent, going thru the femoral artery

Good vibes for your procedure

We wish you godspeed.

gopher_6_9 11-27-2019 02:00 PM

good luck man.

sounds like you need an iwi tavor to deal with the neighbor issue...

rang-a-stang 12-02-2019 05:01 PM

Man, that's a rough hand you have been dealt. I am glad you have doctors to help, a wife to support, and mind that is still sharp. Praying for you, your wife, and your doctors. I'd rather have any of those 3 than a cool FSJ. Bills suck but not as much as losing someone important.

As a wise man once said: We wish you Godspeed.

chubbinius 12-02-2019 05:09 PM

Wow, that sounds like a series of tough pills!

Here's hoping that your surgery went well, your recovery is swift, and karma pays a visit to those neighbors. Healing and health to you, Carnuck.

I made it! A week ago I could almost be mistaken for a zombie. Now my blood O2 is 97% without trying hard. The feeling that I went a couple rounds with a dwarf using the family jewels for a speed bag!

rang-a-stang 12-03-2019 11:16 AM

Wooo Hooo! I love positively answered prayers like that!

I am glad to hear you came through the surgery well!! What does recovery look like?

Carnuck 12-08-2019 01:32 PM

Doctor will probably let me start driving again tomorrow. Found out my neighbor was hit and killed by a drunk driver on Highway 2 last week. After everything he’s been through and survived before it seems crazy. (He had brain cancer, liver cancer, Hep C and they had just pronounced him clear again)

Kaiserjeeps 12-09-2019 10:41 PM

Glad to hear the good news Carnuck. You are not done here just yet.:D
It sounds like you feel much better already.

My mom (RIP sweetheart) lived on the south side of hiway 2 just out of Index back in the early 80's. There were drug problems up there back then.
We all loved her cabin and had many a family function there, but were always cautious of strangers that would drive up and turn around. She was in her kitchen doing dishes one evening and turned around to see a man at her door looking in at her while she washed. She was alone. He ran off and I bought her a pistol and proceeded to educate her on it. She eventually sold the place and it was missed by all. This was before the big wave of meth hit and the theft problems that went with it.
My wife and I moved 5 years ago from Oregon and from being surrounded by meth and other hard drugs. It was the best thing we ever did. At the time it felt like we got defeated and we lost. But in reality we won big time. We now live in Gods country with tons of wild animals and no crime at all. Our neighbors are for the most part normal, out of sight and not difficult to be around. We are SO glad we left. Peace at home and all around you is worth working for. I hope you are able to find a solution with that and either your neighbor commits a serious enough crime to go away or finishes his bad decision on drug use and goes away from what ever reason.
Glad to hear the good news. Sorry about the stuff you have had to put up with.. wow. I am also very sorry about your neighbor.

Hoping you have a speedy recovery and being able to get back to the projects or anything you want to do. That is pretty sad about your neighbor. Survive all that and be killed by a drunk.

chubbinius 12-10-2019 01:44 PM

Happy to hear the surgery, and sounds like recovery as well, have gone well for you. Good luck on the clean bill and doctor's stamp to drive again.

That's sad news to hear after your good news, peace to your neighbor's soul and his family and friends as well.
