Tryin' to Stay Alive in the World------
« on: March 24, 2022, 03:48:14 PM »
Had to put this somewhere.
I spent about a month trying to figure out why I a so knocked out.  Turned out to be brain hemmorahge.  Another six weeks confirmed that , along with some surgery for pressure, fluid, etc.

On the plus side, I'm still alive.  On the other hand, things could be a lot better.

I'm aiming to go to the first  contest in New Jersey to cheer.  maybe get cheered out of the flight circle.

Wish me some luck.

The contest got delayed a week due to rain.  Barry Lyter jr. drove, due to PA rules.  I have to have somebody check me out for a driver's license.  Barry's Dad is also Barry,  close to 84 and can still put up a decent match.
The weather was beautiful.  Everything went smoothly.  I got some cuts.  Didn't crash or midair.  Spent half my time coaching opponents on how to get lined up.  Didn't have much if any dizziness or stumbling.

The next step is exercising and some weight lifting to get strong again.  I lost lbs. to this fiasco.  It's going to be difficult t build muscle again without getting fat!

I want to send a big cheer of Thanks to everyone who posted or called in with encouragement.  It was so great, even though I was half asleep mostly in the hospital.

Fortunately I don't actually remember much of what happened. A dim view of a big, barely finished open hall with half a dozen gurney's.  Somebody gave me a few pills and a drink.
The last think I remember until  I woke up in the recovering area, which was the same as where they got me.  Recovery seemed very slow.  It took another 2 weeks before I could walk
much.

So another thanks to all the great people who fly model airplanes and go to contests and get-togethers.

Thanks,
Phil Cartier.
