    Default near death and back

    Last week working in the shop getting my Suzuki ready for a trip to Tuscon I got very dizzy and had to go to the house to sit down. After about 15 minutes of it getting worse I decided to call 911. I was so dizzy I couldn't push the buttons on the phone.I was thinking well this must be it for me and kind of resigned myself to death.Luckily my wife came home just then and saw me in distress and called 911. So off I went to the hospital for a blood clot removal in my brain. No side affects at all.That took care of my trip,but I'm still alive for a next years trip. Still want to do a run to AZ.I'll be 70 in Nov.Still have a lot of riding to do after PT is done.I'm close to God and I told him please not yet and my wife walked in just then.

    A speedy and full recovery. Please keep us updated. I'll send you a private message with questions eventually because I have (am) a horse in that race.

    It's Tucson, but now that you are recovering, I'm sure you know that. Cheers, bud. Glad you're alive!
