    For those who know Walt AKA Rusty stump, I've found out that he has been hospitalized with a heart condition. I got this from another site on which his wife said she would post any results/changes. Pat

    Here's some real good news!!!

    Thanks Fellas, Rusty

    Hi Walt here!

    They have a computer station at the hospital so I logged on. I'm doing a lot better. It was a cross between something wrong with my abdomain or my heart. Right now they have rulled out my abdomain as I had a CAT scan with additives today and it came back negative so far. Tomorrow morning I'm having a heart catheter of the left ventrical. If there is anything wrong with the heart they should find it then.

    Right now it seems that it's the fact that I eat too fast and am swollowing air when I eat plus I drink too much soda. This is causing a build up of air in my stomach which is putting a bubble behind the heart and pressure on it.

    Well I'll know more tomorrow. If everything goes ok I'll probably go home tomorrow afternoon.

    Walt

    My best wishes for a quick recovery, Walt! And good luck for the tests! :wave:

    I know that bubble stuff with the stomach - had something like that a few years ago, when I was in a complete stress situation at the job.
    At this time I was wolfing down my food like mad, having no time for a decent meal.
    One day I thought that my heart was going to quit, and I ended up in hospital, too. But then a rigorous control of my eating habits did the trick. After only a few days those symptoms simply disappeared and never returned.

    Hopefully you'll be also back to normal real soon. I keep my fingers crossed for you! :thumb:
