#2601185 Catman May Not Make The Game

Posted by Ribs on 11 January 2014 - 02:22 AM

 

ribs, y u swagger jacking my user pic lol why is ur nick ribs and u have a pic of chicken wings anyways

 

HA! Sorry man I didn't mean to step on anyone's toes. That's actually a tailgate special from Bojangles.

 

My handle on every other website is BojanglesSweetT, and I wanted to register that here a little while back, but then it told me I made a handle with my email here years ago before I went universal with BojanglesSweetT.

 

Any way to change handles using the same email?




#2599889 Catman May Not Make The Game

CHF is a big deal, both my parents have struggled with it. Imagine your heart not pumping correctly and not sending oxygen to other organs. your body cant get rid of excess fluid and retains it and fluid fills your lungs. It can take weeks to get rid of all the fluid and then you have to find/fix the issue with the heart. With CHF, it never really gets better, only worse. Hopefully they can fix the issue with his heart.

 

I was diagnosed with CHF ironically enough right after going to the Buffalo game earlier this year. For those that don't understand, your heart has an ejection fraction which measures how hard your blood squirts out the left side when it contracts. Approximately 50% is normal for humans. Mine turned out to be 10-15%. What's worse is I'm only 32. I, and most others with the condition, take Lasix everyday to get rid of the excess fluid backup in our lungs and legs like the poster quoted. It doesn't really effect me day to day other than being tired and really staying on top of the prescriptions. You must avoid any taxing/stressful behavior too.

 

I disagree with whether it can get better or not though. It can get better. Sometimes the cause is viral and at that point you can see your EF raise back up to normal levels in a year or so. If it is caused by coronary artery disease or another root, there are also options there too. I find out the beginning of March if mine is viral or not. Fingers crossed.

 

Get well Catman. Much love and I'm thinking of you.

 

KEEP POUNDING

If Tampa can go up there and do what they did with a rookie QB, I have absolutely no doubt we can go in there and win. I'd really love to be the team to put that streak to bed on the way to the Meadowlands.
