    Well guys, looks like i will coming back here less now. Found out wednesday that my heart is drasticly enlarged. went in for the flu, found out that it wasnt the flu... my blood pressure was 189 over 100. needless to say i havent been back to work or left the house since. Some of you guys also know i am expecting my first child in September. Thinkgs like this just affect you psyce pretty heavily. this is what my father was diagnosed with when i graduated high school. he was given 6 months to live and that was 6 years ago. still it weighs heavily on my family. so i will be spending more time trying to get my life right and not so much looking at gear.

    i didnt mean for this to turn into a "poor me" thread. i just wanted you guys that i consider freinds to know where i have gone. you guys have my email as well as most of you have my phone number. Take it easy guys and i hope to see you all again very soon.

    Good luck with all that stuff you have on your plate. You seem like a pretty tough spirited dude, so I think the odds are in your favor.

  15. Does your family have a history of Marfan's? I have been going in for tests, because my Aorta is bigger than it should be. It may be some branch of that, and just for referenc how tall are you? Height is a sign for things like that, I am 6'6" for example.....:( :confused:

    good luck:bassist:
