He starred in a movie where glow in the dark condoms were featured, and it made me laugh. And I am distantly related to the guy.

I had to read that about four times before I figured out that John Ritter didn't nearly kill a farker.

This sounds interesting. How far is it from Florida to Arkansas.

Will a house land on me in a tornado?

I'd like to come and celebrate life a bit, Zygar, but it's not in the cards for me for some time to travel.  I hope a good time is had!  Happy Birthday, mister :)

Which Farker died?

Ditto.

oh wait. I did meet another Farker. A TFette. She moved out here to date me for 6 months. It ended badly. So uh.....let that be a lesson to all of you.

REALLY short history of what happened: Had AAA, took 6 hours to get go surgery, got "paddled" twice to bring me back, had tube in my throat and couldn't talk and was in intensive care for almost 3 months. Over it now, but as I was recovering my ex-fiancee read fark article headlines tome and the articles themselves when I nodded

I would love to come and celebrate your non death with you, but I'm exhausted from dealing with my best friends 26-year-old daughter (she was just sent home from Sloane Kettering after a year of cancer treatments with no chance of survival). That and I live on the East Coast.

/just put my husky in the back of the SUV after she had three seizures  in a row  and my wife is now driving her to the animal  hospital:(

Yup
 
2019-03-17 01:13:11 AM  
That phrasing makes me think that you would like to get revenge on John Ritter for what he did, seeing as it almost killed you, but he's already dead. But I guess we could desecrate his grave for you. But whatever he did, at least gain solace in the fact that Mr. Roper thought he was gay.

There's a Farker on my favorites list who has a nylon tube where his abdominal aorta used to be. He continues to live a depraved, thoughtful, hilarious life. Let that be an inspiration to you, Subby, and many happy returns of the day.

My husband just celebrated his 50th and survived the same event (aortic dissection/aneurysm) And open heart surgery back in 2016. Congratulations on making it through. he's doing great and he's incredibly lucky.

And don't worry about having to come to Arkansas...if you look closely it's in Mississippi, the only state that ranks lowest in pretty much everything/

Sure, John Ritter is good, but he's no Josh Ritter.
Also, my grandma had a AAA (abdominal aortic aneurysm) and was written up and the oldest person to successfully have a certain procedure done. She lived a good long while after, despite her many complications, and I wish you the same!
 
2019-03-17 01:40:53 AM  
For no rational reason, I live in constant fear of aortic dissection. I didn't even know it was survivable. So thanks, subby.

What is an ascending aortic aneurysm?
The aorta is the largest blood vessel in the body. It leaves the heart and forms an arch.
The arch's downward portion, called the descending aorta, is connected to a network of arteries that supplies most of the body with oxygen-rich blood. The upward part of the arch, which is the section closest to the heart, is called the ascending aorta.
The part of the aorta in the chest is called the thoracic aorta. The portion further down in your trunk is called the abdominal aorta.
An aneurysm is a bulge that forms in the wall of an artery. It happens when the artery wall weakens. Aneurysms anywhere in the body are dangerous because they can rupture and cause massive internal bleeding. An ascending aortic aneurysm is especially serious. A rupture in this part of the body can be life-threatening.

Damn, too bad you're having it on a weekday, I'd love to get a chance to come back near my undergrad stomping grounds (Univ. Memphis 2002) to visit.

Long road trip from Athens, GA for a random Tuesday night. Wish I could make it, but have fun either way.

Shh. The only joy I have left is counting the celebrities that I outlived. Like Luke Perry. I just didn't know Ritter was dead already.

Not to make you any more paranoid but my husbands symptoms were weird. Numbness/tingling in his left arm and cheek when he woke up he ascribed to sleeping wrong. Then increasing sciatic pain down his right leg with no history of back trouble later that morning whenever he tried to walk more then a few feet. We got him to the hospital for a bad back that night, they listened to me about the numb cheek that morning and said there is no pinch point in the neck for the face...that's brain. ER doc put it all together and got him a scan and saw the AAA said you're going to get open heart surgery now. Six hours later he has a new valve and a Dacron ascending aorta. But he still has a dissection all the way down his aorta into his leg that has to be monitored.

Unexplained back pain should be checked out. Even if it's weird and lower body like his.

Wait, they've moved Arkansas to Mississippi. Heck I need the chef diagram to find Kentucky.

Hey there! Can't make it for your birthday as I'm fairly far away, but I will be celebrating my own 49th on the same day. :)

Hey, I'm in the Augusta area.

My dad had the same surgery in 2001 or so.   I don't recall the exact year now, but that was his first.  He's had two more replaced since, but they were monitoring those so they weren't as dangerous. He's still kicking at 83 having had multiple other surgeries for other issues.

It took 5 heart specialists to catch it.  The first four said he was fine and there was nothing wrong, but he didn't feel right.  The fifth drew a picture of what it would look like and sure enough, he was dead on.  Afterwards, we asked why he described it as classic symptoms when the other doctors all said nothing was wrong.  His response was a simple "They normally diagnose this in the autopsy." So most doctors would rule it out if you were there talking about it.

As a CT MRI tech who has done hundreds of scans on AAA's, I just like to say that that is awesome. I'm in North Central Montana, but I'll be there in spirit!!!

Zygar: wearsmanyhats: ascending aortic aneurysm?

Yup


Now I'm confused... AAA is an acronym for abdominal aortic aneurysm... Was your aneurysm in your belly, or in your chest? If you had a aneurysm blow in your chest, and you survived, you are among a very small, tiny percentage of people... Abdominal aneurysms are much less nefarious and Sinister, more easily diagnosed and treated. So which is it, man??? Inquiring-minds-want-to-know??

That's pretty cool, do you have a link to those medical articles? I actually think I saw those years ago...
