Just heard Greg Sullivan of Diamond had a heart attack. Not sure if it was during a tourney set-up, but I hear he's doing fine, and will be out of the hospital in a couple of days.

It must have happened after Saturday because he was there that evening. I wish him the best.
Get well soon Greg..

Jake,
Is that for arteriography or angiography or angioplasty? I hope everything is OK.

Flunked the stress test so now they have to check what, where and how much blockage I have. Perhaps insert a stent.

Good luck, man. I'm pulling for you. I hope they come back and say "You're fine, get outta here."

Hi Jake,

I've had five angio procedures resulting in two stents. It's been 10 years since the first stent was put in and 6 years since the second. Don't let them just do an angioplasty, insist on a stent. Good luck.

Hi Dave,

You're the bionic man.

In yesterday's Orlando Sentinel they had an article about a new procedure. A CT Coronary Angiography - a cat scan - that photographs the heart and allows the surgeon to see where and how much blockage there is. It is non-invasive and more accurate then the stress test. Had I known of this prior to the stress test I would have opted for this.

Price of stress test and CT Coronary Angiography is about $1,000 each while the Cardiac Catherization is about $6,000.

Of course since I now most likely need a stent I will need the cath.

This CT procedure is offered in Mt. Dora which is only about 25 miles from my Doctor so I am very dissappointed with him for not offering that option. Only 3 in the State.

And since I do have a pension, and did not apply for VA benefits before Jan 2003, I am not allowed to receive VA benefits and go to the Veteran's Hospital. Just shows that some Veterans are more equal than others.
