Discussion: Blood Clot ALERT!!

Taits: I went to ALL the specialists & NO one could give me any idea as to the origin of the clot. The Hematologist declared that he could find no problems. Seems U have + & - Proteins in the blood that keep clotting in check & ALL those were fine.

I had a Venogram; where they enter the back of the knee & go up towards the groin area. The Hema Doc explained that there is a vein & artery that sort of cross each other at the upper front body area where the leg hinges at the hip & sometimes one can limit the other....but NO problem.


HJ: This link explains it; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_saphenous_vein. The Great Saphenous Vein. It was called a Superficial not DVT; but this link explains more: http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000199.htm

No matter whether Super of DVT; I was put in the Hospital & was not able to move for hours; had to beg the Doc to let me have a bowel movement. It was explained to me that it could go to the lungs & cause severe complications.


It is still a mystery!!

Discussion: Blood Clot ALERT!!

Thanks Joe & Surf88: I had an injury & was not able to make Montgomery.

Blood clots seem to be deceptive; you can easily push the thought aside & characterize the pain as a strain or old age; but if it is waking U up at night; there is something more serious. Not to B taken lightly!!

Discussion: Blood Clot ALERT!!

Maybe this can ALERT & help someone!!!

2008 I was 58 & in great shape; weighed 250; 6'3", was lifting weights; working on a ranch doing heavy work for 8-10 hours a day; no physical or medical problems; taking NO medications except a baby aspirin a day; NEVER on drugs or alcohol (except occasional Nyquil dosage); NO steroids or etc; NO prior physical problems except an appendectomy & LKnee surgery(1991)!!

At night while sleeping my left calf would burn & wake me up several times. I brushed it off as overtraining; but it continued for 2 weeks; then one night I got up @ 2:30AM; watching TV; looked down & the vein in my inner left thigh looked like a RED RIVER. It bulged out about 3/16".

Long story short: 11.08, had a blood clot; then another on 7.09 while on blood thinner. Went to every specialist from Hematologist to Heart to Sleep Apnea Doctors & NO one could find any link to the cause of the Clot. Stayed on Coumadin till 1.06.11.

I hope this message ALERTS anyone that has these type symptoms to NOT delay & get it checked cause this is serious!!!

Discussion: Oldest Senior Participant

Steve: We all fall into that category. My main intention was to give HIGH Fives to these guys. I've been in it since 99; but I know there are some 70 & 80 teams; it would be great to know who has logged the most years in SSB Tourneys.
Imagine someone in their 80's that has logged 30 years X 9(avg tourneys a year) X $300 (est) per tourney = $81,000.00 for the LOVE OF THE GAME & THE COMARADERIE!!! Awesome!!!

STEVE: Injured reserve; will not be in Montgomery.

Discussion: Oldest Senior Participant

Two things I do not think has been discussed:
1. Who is the Oldest Player (on the board or someone you know)that participates or has participated in SSB Tournaments?

2. What Player has logged the MOST consecutive years in SSB Tournaments. How many years?

Thanks

Discussion: survey

Well: I have pushed for a Player Poll (been in the SSUSA since 99). IMO if I was not important enough to survey or poll in reference to the AAA HR or any other Rules, then I am not important enough to Poll in reference to the 1 & 1!!!

Looks like a PP could be launched just as easy as the 1 & 1 count survey was executed!!

Been thinking about my friends that I know down in the Panhandle; hoping everything is alright. Steve, Mike, Patty Mc, Wendall, Bill G, & many others.

Do not know others in lower Ala, Miss & La; but know that ALL of that sector is in my prayers.

Discussion: Black Centenarian

Tri18: Black Centenarian; I had only used it in BP to get to the 200 breakinh swings in; then used it in 2 games; actually did not swing it 8 times; maybe 5-6.

BP was with balls from 2006; they were on the soft side; were dry, never water logged; VERY DISAPPOINTED in this bat!!!

Discussion: Black Centenarian

Just TERRRRRRRRIIIBLEEE!!!!
Can't afford these high priced bats anyway that have NO warranty; I did not even get 250 swings on this bat & got a 4" split.

Problem was: I was not even swinging hard.

I have an OLD U2 & a tank of a 585 & of course my 2 trusty Original Veloes.

Economy the way it is: I will just have to use what I got.

250 swings; about $.75 a swing............Just Terrrrible!!!

Discussion: ex-teammate looking for a team

Bruce: thanks for the info on Wayne; gave him a call; he would be a good fit for our Columbus 55 team. The 55 coach is going to call him & work out some details.

The 55 team is a AAA team & I checked the IP List & did not see him on there; does he qualify to play AAA?

Discussion: Catfish Recipes

Southpaw: you hit the nail on the head on the recipe; did exactly that; used some Lefty Cajun Spice, oil & slow cooked for 30 minutes; wish I could have saved you a piece, but you know.............When I started eating,, I plum forgot your name.... Senior Moment I guess!!!

Next batch: eggs, corn meal, little flour, buttermilk, zesty italian dressing, lemon pepper & garlic batter: cook slow then add some lemon juice.

Better get started!!!!!!!!

Discussion: Catfish Recipes

Somedays are awesome!!!
Started fishing about 5 yesterday with chicken gizzards (had livers, but they were taking them off of the hook); 1 1/2 hours & 2 whole gizzards later I had to stop cause my old rod snapped an eyelet off the end as I pulled in the last one.

Well, all that to say this; 7 catfish; 37 lbs on the scale; largest one was 29" long!!!!

OK, I am bragging a little, sorry; now for the real deal; you old timers (guys or gals) give me some recipes!!!

Discussion: Black Centenarian

Good feedback: I hit most of the balls on a line, so only a few got any air underneath.

I had been thinking about the White Combat, but I do not like the smaller knob.

My Original Veloes were like that; took about 4-500 swings & they were good to Launch.

Will give an update ASAP.

Discussion: Black Centenarian

Broke my last 510 Lauch; used 2 since 07; have an Original ASA U2; but decided to add another Senior Bat; so I purchased a 30 oz Black Centenarian.

Hit BP with it twice; about 60 balls total; hits about the same distance as my Demarini Dbl Wall 30 oz; that's around 300-305' with balls I got from Bill G of AMI back in 06. My Miken 585 outhits it; after ALL that jargon; does this model take a long time to break in?
