ONE MAN'S JOURNEY - Part 12


SORRY..... WORDS KEEP DISAPPEARING FROM MY POSTS. I EDIT AND PUT THEM BACK AND NEXT DAY THEY OR DIFFERENT WORDS DISAPPEAR........
Really getting tired of this, fixing it is a full-time job!!!!

They say that, “Life is what happens, while you’re busy making plans”. Well, whoever came with that was messianic!

In the 70s was a pretty bad recession on Long Island, not just , but we seemed be the hardest. Property values plummeted, businesses were declaring bankruptcy at an alarming rate and many people lost jobs and houses.

I had been in my office for about a year and half, but had been doing pretty well. I still had skeleton staff because I needed operating cash and also very qualified people to hire. Turns out wasn’t necessary.

In the blink of an eye, four of my top accounts declared bankruptcy within 3 days. , none of them fucked around………. They went Chapter 7, with no appreciable assets to liquidate. Shock wasn’t the word for it!!......................Between four companies, they owed my company about $45,000. Doesn’t sound like much, but in today’s dollars that would be close to the $2,000,000 mark…… just following the old adage that money doubles every 7 years.

I had my own accounts payable to worry about, and they didn’t want to hear any sob story about losing $45,000 in one felt swoop. Frantically, I begged, borrowed and stole (my own IRA and investments) to attempt to stay afloat. It didn’t work, and the pressure on me was mounting daily.

A few days later, at 4am, I awoke with the most God-awful pain across my chest. I couldn’t breathe, my arms felt like solid lead and I could hardly move them. I woke some time later in the ICCU of the local hospital. I had a serious cardiac event that was definitely going to require major surgery.

My wife in her infinite wisdom, got the members of her family and a rented truck, and cleaned out my office (except for my prized Karastan) so that the landlord couldn’t padlock the door and claim my furnishings, for breaking my lease.

But things weren’t going be easy. My particular surgery was still a rarity in the 70s, with two specialist surgeons in the entire country were performing . Bad news was that my cardiologist said I needed the surgery now………… but the waiting list for the surgery was out 7 months. So as with the rest of my life, it was a gamble…………… will I make it the OR, or will I be 6 feet under?

I was given very specific orders, along with several meds. Of course, sex of any kind was out of the question……….. though getting an erection under those circumstances was not a probability. I was instructed not do anything even slightly exerting. Definitely no stairs, ever! No lifting anything more than two or three pounds. Plenty of rest, no coffee, no tea, no alcohol, no salt, and I was reminded again, no sex………even self sex…….. HA!!!!! It seems that even the strain of an ejaculation was dangerous. In short, I was a fucking mess!

I was at home, but had be driven weekly my Cardiologist’s office be monitored by Electro-Cardiograph and Echo-Cardiogram. They even performed photo-imaging of my heart from various angles, to see it's action. The slightest change would have prompted adjustments in my meds and/or re-admission to ICCU. I was lucky that I maintained a steady level of heart function.

Being a 40 y/o guy, I was depressed that this might be the end of my sex life, in spite of the fact that I had enjoyed enough to last me two lifetimes………. Lol.

About two Months later, I was informed that I was on the short list. My surgery was scheduled at one of the best East Coast hospitals, in three weeks.

If you want see if I survived the surgery, you have read the next blog………….

OMG really OMG. I am so sorry to read about the loss of your business. I cannot imagine what that would be like and then heart issues. I have been through a triple bypass but was 58 when it hit me. Obviously you survived . However have to keep reading to see how you pulled out of it all.

The heart problems were in the cards for a while. Family history, etc..... but it was exacerbated by the pressures of the business problems.
