Hope Arnold will let me post this here. For the last week, I have been treating what I fully thought was heartburn. In a way, I was unknowingly playing a sort of Russian Roulette with my cardiac health! I am in the ER and am stable, and will be monitored overnite. l already have five coronary artery stent placements, and likely will visit the cardiac cath lab in the morning. At 76, and with 14 years of dialysis under my belt, I hope I am still tuff enuf to lick this latest medical issue. LOL! Please keep me in your thoughts, guys, and THANKS!
This is my favorite thread, so it made sense to post here. There are some GREAT collectors here, and I really love to share your treasures!
Hang in there. We’re all pullin for ya.
Prayers up, for ya, Pal. Be well.
Beowulf...another old O Gauge fart from 2001.
Hang in there.
Positive thoughts for sure! 🙏🙏🙏
Good luck. Keep us all posted.
Get well soon, and stay that way; we'd sure miss you !
GERRY: WAESHAL! from "Beowulf", my first forum handle in 2001! Waeshal is the Anglo Saxon (Old English) greeting, which means how is your health?
THANKS, ALL! ☺
Hoping it is just heartburn with a little extra troponin due to inflammation. Best wishes for a complete and rapid recovery whatever the diagnosis.
Kick it's butt, Art!
Sending best wishes for a quick recovery.
LANDSTEINER: Saw my GI guy before going to the ER, and he guessed cardio involvement. Center line angina with no radiation, no nausea or sweating, mod BP elevation, normal pulse, and no shortness of breath. Elevated T enzyme, also not unusual for ESRD dialysis patients.
Hang in there, keep busy reading the forum, you’ll be home running trains in no time!........Pat

Thank you, mate, from down under, and all the rest of the OGR gang!
Best wishes to you, sir. Few things more dull than a hospital room. It's nice that you have access to OGR!
Get well and get back to playing with trains! You’re still young at 76 and have many more years left, so hang in there. My dad is 94 and still building wooden airplanes.
Hope you feel better soon!
GEORGE: Your dad is my new inspiration man!
Thank goodness for these smart phones! Mine is an old school Samsung Galaxy S-5.
Art, you are in my prayers...
Sounds like you are a diabetic, regardless I hope you feel better.
John: Fortunately, not a diabetic. Just an inherited kidney condition called PKD. THANK YOU for your kind words!
Beterschap! Get well to play trains again!
Best wishes to you for a harmonious outcome Art. Been trying to get my old ticker regulated again as outpatient.
You have been a participant here for many years and I am sure that will continue--my prayers go to you for a healthy outcome.
Fred: dank je wel! Dewey: GREAT to hear from another original forum member! Norm: THANK YOU! I am sitting on the edge of my hospital bed with a higher BP, than I or my nurse would like, with some mid-line chest pain, and a headache from that durn nitro drip! My lovely wife is on her way, bless her soul, so I am trying to feel better. These hospitals and their protocols are just like the Army: hurry up and wait! I am so glad some of you fellows are online at 4:30 US Central Time! I have not slept a wink this night!
Can't sleep? I get that, and all to well. I sleep when I can now; no opportunity is passed up anymore. The time of day or night has little to do with it anymore. More sleep helps me sleep more regularly it seems.
If you want someone to ramble at while there, or want a ramble to read that just may bore you into sawing logs, my mail is listed.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery. Every tinplater is precious.
