Time will tell

Well it’s been a few months and it’s taking it’s sweet ass time to heal. One of the things I was required to do was quit smoking and that has been a battle for years even before this happened.

I have tried 99% of the crap out there with limited success. But today I got to shave my scare for the first time in months, wondering if I look at it every time I want a cigarette if that will help.

Well I survived 

So I went into the hospital for what I thought was just a bottle brush cleaning of the vein in my neck. When I got the bandage off what you see above is what Dawn saw .


The look on Dawns face was OMG I hope he doesn’t explode, and she was very easy on me for a week or so as I healed.  So I found out that after this I was not going back to work for 2 weeks , no one bothered to let me know untill about a week away . I thought I go in and go back to work a few days later. It’s been about 3 weeks now and I’m back to work but the scar wound is still healing and after about 6 hours when the aspirin stops working I get a little cranky.

So I have lost 40 lbs I got my neck slashed and now everyone wants me to quit smoking , this has been a fun week ” I don’t know why Eric is screaming at everyone”. I have quit before and everyone has been giving me advice on how to do it. I had to post on Facebook if anyone gives me more advice I would put out a cigaret in their eye.

What a weekend !

No, it’s not what you think, Dawn went out of town for work again. It was a Friday I was looking forward to staying up late and playing some games, made it to 10PM (half hour later then norm ). Woke up not feeling so well on Saturday morning but that’s normal, I didn’t eat a lot the night before. Bad TV dinner I should stop eating those things. Had some OJ and got in the car and was heading for fast food to get something in me.

Not long after that I started to get real dizzy and was having a hard time seeing where I was going. Thought it would be better to pull over and I am not sure if I was talking to Dawn or texted after I stopped. Shortly after that I was in an ambulance on my way to a hospital. Told you it wasn’t a good story.

Seems I am diabetic now and have some cleanup work that might need to be done of the veins, I’m considering it a tune up of sorts. More to come as I get board between tests.
