Warburton health issues

Discussion in 'Off Topic [DB]' started by Paul Warburton, Feb 14, 2006.

  1. Hey cats....just a quick note to check in and let you know what's happening.
    As most of you know, I decided to pull back on my TBDB posting, but not to this degree.
    i'm having an oxygen problem. I realized this a couple of weeks ago as I was trying to balance my checkbook. Instead of lining up the figures up and down the page, I was trying to line them across the page and then tried getting a balance.
    My Doc seems to think this could be COPD...Chronic Obstuctive Pulmonary Disease, or something as simple as oxygen going to the wrong places in my brain. It may have nothing to do with my being a smoker.
    They got me on 24hr. oxygen and several inhalers.
    I miss you all
    I'll keep you posted. They've given me every test in the book. A 14 hour day of nothing but tests has not brought anything to light.

    Hey Paul, we'll be thinking of you. I hope you get fixed up soon.
    Take care!

    Listen, you bastard, stop being all pulmonary and ****. I don't have room for oxygen tanks in my apartment and you STILL haven't come to NYC yet.

    Siriusly, ANYTHING I can do, just let me know.

    Amen to all of the above. Get your **** straightened out so you can come back and make sick comments about your paper towel dispenser in the W.C.
  8. These Rooms would be a good name for a Jim Hall album.....
    Thanks for all your wishes...

    I hope you get well soon Paul, if you need pure air, you're invited to come here, i'll take you to the mountains .... Mick Jagger believes in the Swiss mountains.
    Serious, i wish you all the best.... and if i can help in any possible way, dont hesitate.

  12. Hell Paul, I've really missed your posts and believe it or not play your sampler tunes quite a bit - shoot - I'll have to buy the cd now out of embarrasment. I'm still looking forward to your UK tour. Do get well soon - I'm sure all the great and good will come visiting but you might want to turn down the vice pres.

    Very best wishes
  13. Definitely keep us updated. You are greatly missed around here. I don't think Red Mitchell's name has been mentioned in two or three weeks.

    I hope you're back to health real soon. My mother suffered from COPD for a few years. She was eventually on oxygen 24 hrs a day.

    Paul, get well! You still need to pop in on Ed, steal all his gigs, and make a bunch of records that I can buy!

    Seriously, man. If there's anything, let us know.
