    OLD AGE!
    The grim reaper is pounding on my door really hard. I'm propping a chair under the door knob. This old ticker is doing its best to keep up with the load and screaming really loud for some relief. Last Feb. 15 cardio Doc, in Manila, and a cardio Doc. here in Dumaguete suggested I get a coronary angiogram, STAT. The angina has been kicking my a s s for the last 6 weeks. I'm 72 and my dad kicked the bucket at 72, (heart attack). Younger brother dead heart attack at 59, was a month before anyone discovered his body. I might be shaking hands with Glenn sooner than I would like. [​IMG] I hope the grim reaper got some really good pain pills to help me swim the river STYX. I hear the water is really cold. Going to try to make it to Cebu City tomorrow for some coronary intervention. [​IMG]

    I wish you all the best mate, as I now also face my own mortality for the second time in 9 years, (stage 4 cancer). My remission is over and only recent medication,(very expensive), seems to have applied the brakes to things a little.
    It is easy to say, but try and relax a bit more, consult whoever needs to be consulted(medically speaking) and never give up. I have also try to adhere to the old adage, "Still breathing, still fighting".
    I wish you the best of luck, medical knowledge and send you good vibes.

    Here is the big boot in my a$$. I am service connected for my heart disease. But now the VA requires me to pay up front for any medical procedures. The VA's plan is let you die and save the money for all the white coats and blue collars. They say just use the FMP, they will reimburse you. I simply do not have 15 to 20 thousand USDs to get in the front door of the hospital. The FMP program is nothing more than a round-about way for the US government to screw their veterans out of their entitlements to medical. If I am service connected than the VA is obligated both morally and legally to take care of my service connected health issues. So the VA has me right where they want me. Between my grave and their bank, they want to take away my birthday. Which they could not do during my combat years in service. And their propaganda machine has the world wondering "Who makes tourists".

    Wow, is there an option to go to the motherland to get it taken care of? Maybe Guam?

    Take care of yourself.
    Nobody will help you if you don't help yourself.

    If I would be in your shoes I certainly would go back right away to my home country (Germany) and would enjoy the best treatment available. Paid by insurance

    You should not create additional headache by dealing with Philippine doctors and VA. That isn't good for your heart either.

    Go home, recover, and come back for another 15 years. First beer is for me. At Grumpy's or Bogart or where ever it suits you.
    Promised.
