Started sawing too early
« on: May 18, 2020, 12:02:53 PM »
Had a pacemaker put in a week ago last thursday.
It is for a condition called a left bundle branch block.
Electrical in nature prevents the left ventricle from receiving the proper electrical pulse.
Doc told me the consequence is that my ticker isnt working at full capacity.
Was told no heavy lifting for a while.
Felt great this morning so went up and sawed 2 Aspen logs, slabs weighed probably 30 to 60 pounds or so.
Big mistake should have listened to my doc.
Kinda sore right now.
Hope I havent  wrecked anything.
If I had half a brain I would be dangerous.

while in residency in Albany, an old Dr. Beebe got a pace maker.  He grew flowers and came to the hospital and gave them to his old pt.s even though he was retired.  He was being discharged and we told him not to raise his arms above shoulder ht., or it might pull the wires loose from the heart muscle, until it had time to scar in.  He stood up and did a practice golf swing without the club.  He then asked if his arms went above his shoulders.  He had a T time at 1 pm that day.  He had the oldest shoes but always polished.  He walked with a shuffle as he was in his 80s.  His golf swing was not half bad. :)

Pete,

   Sorry to hear you have been on the puny list. I hope you are back running on all 8 cylinders real soon.

   When I saw the title of the post I thought you were saying you started sawing too young and I figured you had to have a kid sitting in a booster seat on the fancy Magic Man's mill seat to do that. :D

So....what's wrong with having a booster seat?  ::)   I was actually sitting on the seat's back while sawing that 40 incher last week.  ;D

My shoulder has been complaining so I am fairly confident that I have given the stitches a workout.  Folks, old men don't know how to quit doing what we have always done.  I told the shoulder and knee that if they were going with me, they had better hop on, shut up, and hold on tight because it was gonna be a bumpy ride.  :o

All right young-uns obviously I'm gonna have to tell you what Daddy told me. "Son, you're never going to make it to 9 if you keep doing that".

Feelin much better today but will only saw when I have a tail man which will be tomorrow sawing some 3x5x 16 wagon bed stringers.
My surgeon also told me no extension above the shoulder, but it is hard as I sleep with my arm  over my head a lot.
In addition to this my foot surgery is now 3-1/2 months  past and the foot still hurts by day's end.
