Hey, Jim. If it's at the point where surgery is necessary, there are many great vascular surgeons and centers...and many treatment choices as daiwa said...you've got everyone's good thoughts and prayers, mine included.
My wife, the cardiac nurse says, "If it pops, you bleed out very quickly. Not much chance of survival at that point.
Umm, err, ok. Thanks for the encouragement, Lisa.
I love you too.
Thanks guys for the encouragement. I love you guys! Really, even Jafo.
Lisa says at this point surgery is the only option.
Thanks, Seth. You're a good friend.
Quoting is fucked up. But then, so is life.
On the other hand, misdiagnosis is still an option.
It's just an Xray, for fuck's sake.
Just in case..... See you soon Xiandi! Love you girl!
Damn Jim! Please take care. My thoughts are with ya.
Cut the morbid crap.
Just thinking that if the plumber asks if the arteries are the blue pipes and the veins the red ones, run like hell! The sumbitch'll hook you up ass backwards and you won't know if you're coming or going!
Good to know...
Hang in there, lad...
I had a plumber once fire up my gas HWS .....instructions said 'depress button 'A' ....he said...."well, press is push...so depress must be pull...."
I cried a little.
The best Wishes from Germany…..
May the force be with you…….my thoughts will….

Hang tough Jim, give 'em Hell.
Luckily, he didn't just sit there and heap insults on the button. Might have thought insults would depress the button.
We All Fn U Red ! KNOW IT !
Sorry to hear, Jim!
Jim, you've got my prayers.
Good luck Jim. I was recently diagnosed with an enlarged Aorta and spinal stenosis. Aging is impacted by what we accumulate over the years. I am taking a statin now, blood pressure medication, and a muscle relaxant. I have also lost 30 lbs.
I see a neurosurgeon this week.
I plan on living for many years longer because I really enjoying annoying people.
All the very best to you and your treatment Red.
All the best wishes!!!
Thoughts, prayers, and best wishes to you!
