Forum Member Jim Mason Very Sick

I don't know Jim, but he sounds like a good bloke, so glad he is making progress.

If someone can supply an address offline to me I will send him something special from the Wild West.... West Australia, it won't be a snake or a kangaroo, get in before the comedians.

Thanks to Trainpop for posting, and each and everyone of you for the prayers and good thoughts.

The heart attack was a surprise with little warning. As we're just minutes from the hospital My wife took me to the ER rather than take time to call 911 and wait for EMT's. Turned out to be a life saving decision. I went out between the EKG and ER gurney. Let me tell you, getting zapped with the defibrillator and still being awake isn't pleasant, but I like the end result. I'm still here.

My wife is as much the reason I'm here as the hospital folks.

To the folks at St  Agnes ER and cardiac unit, thank you, and God bless you all.

I don't realisticly expect to make York in April now, but if by chance I do, and you see me, say hi. Otherwise I'll still be here browsing the forum, and see you in Oct., with my grandson. I'm convinced he's the purpose of my second chance.

Thanks to all, you're a great bunch, and I appreciate you all!

 

 

Grandsons are often the source of renewed hope and life. Mine provides amazing joy in my life. Happy 2nd chance!!!

 

Don't know Jim but he is part of the OGR forum family. He deserves our sincerest thoughts and prayers for a complete recovery. May our heavenly father look after Jim in his time of need.

Jim I'm so glad you were given that 2nd chance.  I know the feeling.  If there's anything you need help with please email me.  I don't live that far from you.  Take care and you're still in my prayers for a speedy and complete recovery.

Happy to say that I've been given the okay by the doc to make the trip next week.

My daughter will be accompanying me Friday as a precaution, and if I can do two days, Trainpop has offered to chauffeur on Saturday.

Can't wait to see you all!

23 years ago, I survived a basilar artery aneurism (that is the artery that comes up and splits to feed each half of the brain. I was lucky. The wishes for good health and speedy recovery really helped me. 

So, GET WELL QUICK!

Those of you who patronized Vince's Trains over the years know Jim Mason as well as you know Vince or me.  Jim's wife called me last night to tell me that Jim had a heart attack and is in intensive care at a local hospital.  The doctors told Jim's wife that Jim had 90% blockage and they to insert some stents.  I don't know when Jim will be able to receive phone calls or visitors from his local friends, but I would ask you to keep Jim in your prayers.  And if you don't believe in prayers, please just think good thoughts.

Prayers sent.  I've never bought anything from Vince's Trains, but I can sympathize with how he and his wife must feel, since I had a 90%+ blockage myself five years ago, and had to have an emergency bypass operation.  The good news is that with time, physical therapy, diet and exercise, a full recovery is possible.  Best wishes to Jim Mason.
