    Default I am back.. Sort of..

    Moderators: If this is posted in the wrong spot, please forgive me.

    Some of you may remember me. I know its been well over a year since I have visited the forum.

    Well it has been quite a ride for me over that time period.

    Flash back to April 6th 2018 and I had a massive case of congestive heart failure. Ended up with 17 days in the hospital, quadruple bypass surgery and a starting cost of $267,000.00
    And while they where at it they spotted what they suspected was lung cancer but I was too weak for a full investigation.

    So then my heart started doing some weird stuff, so another round of monitoring and testing. With luck, no device needed, just a weird heart beat that does not have any threat of hurting me but drives the nurse nuts when trying to take my vitals.

    Next after that, Yep... stage 3A lung cancer and emphysema. Woo-Hoo a 2 for one sale..

    So now I am half way through 30 radiation treatments and 7 chemo sessions. Then I get a month off before another round of testing and then possible surgery.

    Oh.. I also went blind in my right eye because of all of this.

    So that is what has happened to me in the last year+

    Anyway, I am back. Starting to do some more with Alpha so I will be visiting the forum from time to time.

    Anyone else think they've had a bad year?

    Dave or anyone that is/was on the skype group. for some reason my skype lost all my user and log in info so I am going to setup a new account and will need to know how to join the group again. Please message me with the info. Thanks.
