Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Case's Cousin Just Got Something Unplanned: A Heart Attack

Posted 12-26-2021 at 06:36 PM by case44

I got some surprising news from my mother earlier last week. She sent me a drastic text telling me that one of my cousins just had a heart attack.

It hit home, but it also did surprise me. Yes, there is family history on his mother's side regarding heart attacks. But this particular cousin of mine is just 58 years young, and he's been a bastion of fitness and health for years. He's lifted weights and had become very active for a number of years. My mother told me (in a subsequent phone conversation) that he was doing better by Christmas Eve. He'd been in ICU at a local hospital and had two stents put in, but the reports I'm getting is that he's improving. Now, I was also told that his diet hadn't exactly been health-conscious recently, so that may or may not have contributed to the sudden jolt.

As soon as I get some more news, I'll certainly pass it on to you. Life has a tendency to throw unexpected curves at you. Kind of like my abscessed tooth a couple of weeks ago. But I never would have expected my 58-year-old cousin to even have any type of health problem, no matter the heredity.

    Sorry to hear that. I think the last nearly two years have put a grind on a large number of people who were great before. Not sure if that was what was going on with your cousin, but it may have been a factor.

    I doubt that COVID had any real thing to do with it, shoe. That particular cousin has age and partial family history to deal with now. Not to mention his diet, but his wife will gladly offer help there.

    My Arteries Are Doing Great

    Ol' Case went in to a local hospital for coronary calcium scan this morning. Fast procedure. Came out with 0s across the board!
