As Pluric said I am is nephew, he is a great uncle I used to be more active on the forums. I changed jobs to special Ed. Jr. High Teacher about a year and half ago which required me to go back to school. For my program I teach during the day which counts as my student teaching and go to school at night. After homework I use ADV as my entertainment. With an overworked brain I am afraid to leave some incoherent message
Anyway, yes last week I suffered a cardiac arrest and the doctors did give me a 2-3% chance. Hick you might of heard about this but I guess they are trying a new hypothermia treatment. They cool my body down to 33 Celsius. I guess the perspective is cool him and he might die or let him be warm and die. Needless to say the cooling worked. I now have this doohickey in by my heart that acts as a pacemaker and a defibrillator when needed. I also have some burn marks from the defibrillators that I received when the paramedics revived me at home. I am most proud of those, 1: Between this and my wife's CPR this is what kept me alive. 2: Who else has defibulators scares?
The open heart surgery people have a zipper club I think us defibulator people should start our own club.
I was told not to work until after Christmas break. This sounds fun and all but, when you can't do anything and you are not allowed to be alone it gets pretty old. Hopefully when it gets warmer and my heart decides to work again I can join you guys more often

In the mean time I will be going to endless amounts of therapy some mental some physical. I went to my first therapy appointment on Monday. It was to a speech therapist. I felt like an idiot. Speech therapist do a lot more then teach talking. It's more of a how to function in society type of thing. The questions she was asking me were so basic and I knew I should know them but just plain didn't
Congrats on getting through the ordeal.....CPR is a life saving skill, glad to hear it worked and kudos to the resuscitator (try spelling that without a dictionary.....)......

Sooooo, to make a long story longer, please include your personal
email when you send your information. If you want that on the list
too just say so. Otherwise it's ADV handle, name and number on the
phone list. I'll scan it and send to your email.

I did get my Word Perfect to unlock so no more hand written additions.

PM me now to be on the ADV "A list".

Yeah, how about just sending the word file? Seems like scanning a printed copy is a bit of a hassle. It also makes it easy to make changes to the file as all that Todd-Squad needs to do is add the new info.

Just add a Modified date to the corner of the document so we know when it was last updated.

If we're putting the SPOTers in the list, would it be nice to have one emergency contact info for each?

That way, if we need to, we can use each other to contact others that might care if a fellow FF is buried under a pile of cow crap or needs new underwear after making a pile of crap in their pants. I'm just thinking if we need to call someone's wife to let her know that we have a horde of trailers on their way to rescue their loved FF and all they need to be concerned about is making everyone dinner for when we bring pieces of motorcycle home along with a stinky FF.

Your example sounds so similar to an event I've heard of before.
What kind of fool would hit a cow and get covered in cow crap???

Really what are the odds?

Well if you're dumb enough to trail ride on a Strom I guess anything is
possible.

Pluric if you want I can put it all in excel and email it out. That way it's easy to update. I know technological dohickies are hard for you older folk.

Petevan, glad your still with us, your wife is an amazing person to keep it together enough to perform cpr. Feel free to post, I think most of us consider what Pluric posts as an "incoherent message".

I sorta get the technical side of it, but whats the socio-buddynomics protocol?

First choice is to ride with a couple of you FFs. And riding is like drinking -- ONLY do it alone or with someone.

Seriously, its a huge favor to ask, and Im offering to do the same if the role is reversed but in the unlikely event Im alone and in a pinch, would one or two of U 'tards come and help me drag the Bigass Dirtbike out of the ditch? Or load the broke bucket-o-bolts into a pickup truck? I'd buy the gas, beer/ Sprite and pizza, maybe even a surround-sound system.

Any suggestions how to set this up?
I tried to get this thing going awhile back:

Glad to hear you are okay!

What kind of arrhythmia do you have?

The cooling thing has been around for a while. We are using it on babies that have suffered severe hypoxic (no oxygen) insults at birth. We cool them down for up to 96 hours.

The waxing seems to have helped you a lot.
Also you're taking the "Wash rinse repeat" a little too literally.

Nope, not me. I try to avoid those porn sites that pummel my inbox with spam.
