So What Happened?

K0PIR

I'm an Amateur Radio enthusiast. I love the hobby and experimenting with radios, antennas and software. On my YouTube channel I upload videos on the Icom 7300 and Icom 7610 along with Ham radio software programs. I hope to inspire people to try new things in Amateur Radio.

Oh man what an ordeal! At least they finally figured out the problem and how best to treat it and you’re home. I know how little fun it is to be in the hospital for that length of time. Been there done that!

73 and get well!

Rich, so sorry to hear about your experience of Field Day. I’m glad you’re recovering, though. Strokes don’t begin to match the fun you can have operating outdoors. Do the therapy and get better!

Hi Rich,
Sorry you had to go through all of that, I can emplize, I had a quadruple bypass last year and went through months of therapy.
I hope you recover and return to reg. lifestyle ASAP.
Please do all the therapy, even the little exercises, like putting the coins in a piggy bank, you’ll need to retrain your muscle memories.
All of this Radio stuff will still be here when you are better.

Hope you heal soon. Did they rule out the possibility of a tick bite. Here in PA there has been a very large uptake in tick bites this year. A friend went for a walk in the woods and pulled almost a dozen ticks off when got back to the house. Get well soon. Enjoy your information. Bob KB3VS

I pray you get better and return to your norm.
It’s sad when the activities that bring us joy can also hurt us.
May your therapy go well and bring back your health, strength, and stamina.
Keep us posted as we do care how you are doing.

You did good to get a local diagnosis. A Motorola employee, a ham, and my best friend came down with similar symptoms while in New Mexico and thought it was a cold. When he got back to Chicago, his doctor treated him for a cold. He got worse and lasted two weeks. Moral of the story, get treated by local doctors at the time of the bites. They would know the correct symptoms and solution. You did good. I’m sure the recovery will produce a stronger you. VY 73 k9ORP
