    Thumbs down Life Sucks

    So......yesterday morning at 6AM I'm laying on the operating room table at the local hospital. I was there for an Angiogram. That's where they cut an incision in your groin, cut into the femoral artery and slip a catheter in with a camera and fish it up to the heart to have a look-see. The plan was that if I needed a stent or 2, they would put it in at the same time. A stent is a little thingy that will inflate the artery where it's blocked.
    Well, things didn't go as planned. They found so many bad arteries that they couldn't do anything. Now within the next 2 weeks I have to go back to the hospital and have Coronary Bypass Surgery on multiple arteries. I'm a heart attack waiting to happen. I'm told that this is the most common surgery performed in the USA. I'm scared shitless.

    You'll be just fine, Paul - this is pretty much routine for doctors now, just be sure it's not an intern doing the work.
    Maybe now, you'll go easy on the A-holes asking for free manuals and firmware, or bitch about advertising; or maybe not.

    Before they do anything, make sure the doctor has the correct manual. Good luck to you Paul, you will do great.

    I've known a lot of folks who had bypass surgery, Paul. Never a hitch with any of them. You'll be fine. Take care.
    I know I should be ashamed of myself. Strangely though, I am not.

    Well that really sucks Paul!! Fortunately this is a very common procedure that goes well for most people!! You'll be A OK! Get well and get back to selling manuals.


    P.S. I think I'd give the Doc a free manual..........

    Now that's what I call 'comic relief'! Very nice.
    Best wishes Paul! You'll be back bigger, stronger, and faster in no time!

    We're all rooting for you man. Have a quick recovery. =^..^=
    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    My father in-law had multiple bypass surgery in mid February. He is 77 years old and was out of the hospital in under a week and is already out walking 2 to 3 miles a day. Best of luck, hope you bounce back just as well.
