Wednesday was a very scary day. I was at the hospital waiting for the cardiologist when I had a seizure. They couldn’t find a pulse so they began chest compressions. I had two more seizures and wond up in the trauma center in the ER.
I’m still exhausted from the three seizures, but fortunate to be able to take all the time I need to recover. I’m still a very happy guy. I’ve been blessed with a wonderful wife, three children, seven beautiful grandchildren, great siblings, Mother, loving in-laws and of course the best friends a man could ask for.
I’ve done so many things in my life. Had so many experiences that I’ve loved including making people laugh for 30 years. That has been great! I don’t take any of it for granted. I’m thankful for every single show. Even the ones I’ve done in hard core biker bars.
I’ve had the good fortune to run sales and operations for several companies, including my own. I served our country, albeit for a short time, then worked for the Air Force as a civilian for a few years.
I’ve traveled through foreign lands, learning so many things I never would have known. I’ve also traveled to nearly every state in the union and found it fascinating! I met some very special people in my travels and I’m thankful for every single one.
I’ve had people tell others that I’m faking this illness. Obviously that’s not true but I don’t begrudge them because they just don’t understand it. That’s OK. They’re doing the best they can with the information they have.
I have a great relationship with God as well, so I’m not afraid of what the future may hold. None of us are guaranteed another minute on this planet, so I will choose to continue to fight this illness and live each day to the fullest.
I am a very fortunate man.
