OMG Warren! Congratulations on still being on this side of the White Light. I hope there wasn't too much damage. I went thru s imilar medical incident away from home 4 years ago. However i was only 300 miles from home and I had my wife and many good friends there to help. Being far from home in such a situation is un-needed extra stress.

Get well soon. We are all rooting for ya!

Well that really sucks!!

But I'm glad you're alright, and if you're like my son in law, feeling better than before.

Jesus, Warren, I'm so sorry to learn of this. I hope you'll be able to do the things you love after your recovery.

Best to you, and your family.

Two ambulances and two hospitals later I am now the owner of two stents. Being 3200kms from home is a pain in the behind though, cause the surgeon won't let me fly, But the inconvenience is better than the alternative.
HOLY COW, Warren!!! That's waaaa-aaay beyond "interesting" and on into "Scared the sh*t outta me" territory. Glad you came thru it and got some "repairs" done. Hope your recovery goes swiftly. Where were you? How are you getting home? Do we need to set up a "Locost Relay" to ferry ya back to the house?

Keep us posted, please Sir!
:cheers:

Thank you all. I got a third stent last night and it looks like they may even push me out the door tomorrow.

I am in Fargo ND. The docs don't want me to fly or drive all the way home, so the current plan is to drive the truck and iceboat to Winnipeg (my wife will drive, not me) for storage and then catch a Via Rail train home to Halifax via Montreal. Plans are still a bit woolly, apart from the need for a cardiac rehabilitation program upon returning home
