2014 - 2015 Season

Warning to All Fish -- I’m Back!

Karen and I got back to Lake Worth on the 12th and after unpacking, etc., I finally got out on the water again on Sunday, the 16th, and boy, was it ever good to be on the Lady K that day!

And how good was it? Hey, I caught two yellowtail snappers, a squirrel fish, one sand eel, and a dozen or so blue runners and that was pretty good, but if you look at my past three months, you may feel that it was far better than that!

You see, I nearly died and that wasn’t a good thing at all! Hopefully, our health writer and editor and publisher, Betty, may find the time to write separately about it, but in brief, on 8/29, I awoke with severe pain in my left inner thigh. The day before I spent nearly four hours in my dentist’s chair as he struggled to remove a dental implant that he had predicted "was so loose that it will quickly come out". Well, not so much.

Most of us have either read about or even know someone who has suffered from a pulmonary embolism. In brief, that’s a blood clot! Your knowledge probably goes back to hearing about someone who spent lots of hours during a long airplane flight and often enough, a blood clot forms, generally in a leg, and this is no easy problem to deal with.

But my blood clot hit my leg and when I talked to my DDS about it, he was clueless, or at least he acted innocent. So fast forward, the clot traveled into my lungs and early in October, I woke up, went downstairs, and suddenly couldn’t breathe, collapsing to the floor! Long story short, the Rescue Squad responded to my 911 call, as did an ambulance and the N. J. State Police and they hooked me up to oxygen and took me to the local hospital.

Two days later, the head of the I. C. U. of the facility heard my story and immediately realized that I had suffered from a pulmonary embolism and after conducting several tests that proved him to be right, quickly had me blasted with what they call a four hour "Clot-Buster" and the clot/s quickly went away from my lungs. It still exists in my leg but may go away soon.

I am now on a blood thinner for the rest of my life to try and prevent a future clot but the bottom line is that, more than likely, had the DDS gotten me up every hour to walk around, this never would have happened.

So, wherever you are, train, plane, dentist’s chair, get up and walk around often, willya?

Scuze me, gone fishin’
