    Geez, $16.70 is what a bag of Cheez-its costs in the hospital vending machine here!

    Glad you're back on it man. Just in time for the good cruising weather too!

    NOT to hijack Peter's thread - but to keep the topic of driver's licenses together - I DID ace that eye test at the DMV, and did so without glasses!!

    Jus sayin! Thanks bro. Mario. (I wonder if that examiner is still laughing.)

    I be cool. Saw my cardiologist last week. I'm fine. Next visit to him is one year.
    Had my carotids checked by ultrasound and they are normal. I fear stroke.
    Had my eyes checked. No cataracts, no macular degeneration.
    Today I completed week 5 of Cardio rehab, a 12 week course. They wanted me to walk a mile under 17 minutes by week 12.Today I did it in 15:43. Don't challenge an old racer.
    My BMI is ideal and my belly is under the size limit.
    Plus the weather is so good I took the Ventura to rehab. Whooo hoooo.
    Life is good.
    Peter

    This morning I saw the Cardio rehab doctor. I've been in rehab for 3 months now and I am exiting the program. All my test results are good.
    Party on.

    It's been almost 16 months since the heart attack. Time for an update. Two days ago I went to my cardiologist. I aced everything plus he took me off the blood thinners. Hallelujah.
    Two months ago I had a bunch of tests from the ribs down. Just for fun. Ultrasound first found nothing. Xrays next, found nothing. Then the good one ,a CT scan, and it found no abnormalities of any kind. Here you get a complete written report on a CT scan. No need now for a colonoscopy.
    Then just to check the bladder and prostate we did a cystoscopy. Yup , a dick cam by the dick doc. It hurt. According to the dick doc I have remarkably well preserved architecture. Not sure what he meant.
    So I'm fine. I consider myself one lucky bastard.

    Way to go Peter!!! Nice report - and no doubt you're glad to be off the blood thinners. I hate those damned things, especially the finger pricks to tell how its going!:(

    Recently, I've been having all of those studies, and then some, except - for the cystoscopy. At my age its, "All Old Stock," with no doubts about the future. :sleep:

    Best,

    Hello Peter,

    Glancing though some old threads I came across this one and noted the amount of time that has lapsed. It has been approximately 2 years and 2 months since your heart event so I just wanted to check in with you.

    Trusting that all is well, including the beautiful car!
