  1. Just got home from visiting my Grandpa in KY. Wasn't able to get much done like I wanted too, stupid mower decided to break down. $170+ to get it fixed. Being the good Grandson I am I paid for it, and cause he had done so much for me a number of years ago. Like giving me a place to live when I had no where to go. Anyway today before leaving to head back home he mentions that he has to get rid of one of his cars, a 97 Crown Victoria P71 (police car). I'm not sure what I'm going  to do with it just yet, but an audio upgrade is going to happen. I can't wait to get it back home so I can really look at it. 

  2. Met pinstripe master Von Hot Rod at the Street Machine Nationals in Springfield MO, who did this to my camera. I like how the red matches the strap for my camera. https://imgur.com/a/m6VZo
  3. Next week I'll get all the information about my SSI and all that good stuff. Finally got an income again and can get these stupid debt collectors off my back.

      I'm going to use it for rent, and bills. Really all I got to pay right now. but the back pay is going towards whatever I want, which oddly I have no idea what that is. 

  4. Just learned the house I grew up in is sitting vacant right now. Hmmm makes me wonder how and if I can get back in. Hell I'd spend my whole back pay to do it.

  5. Just got off the phone with my lawyer a little while ago and it sounds like good news. He was telling me that if I agree to saying I was disabled starting in mid June instead of April the judge will grant me my disability. If that happens, which it sounds like it will I wont have to go to court next week. I told my lawyer that I would take the deal, been fighting this way to long. I should know more hopefully by Monday. My court date is Thursday, Will be nice to have some kind of income again.

      I'll give you the short version. I was born with a bad heart, 36 years later I've had two major open heart surgeries. Both needed or I wouldn't be here today. Plus a host of other health problems.

      I read your story a while ago crazy how people on  disability and seem normal but then people who need it have to fight for it , shits crazy hope it all works out brother I remember when u were posting about your 2nd surgery not that long ago glad to see u doing better.

    4. hershy314


      Thanks brother, it is crazy how this whole thing works. I am doing a little better since the surgery. Still trying to get used to the new limitations I have, as if I didn't have enough limitations before lol. All honesty I almost did not answer that call Friday, only cause it was a number I did not recognize. My caller ID showed it as a Topeka KS number, but I'm glad I did. 

  6. Today was a good day, the main source of my stress is some what out of my life. My mother and her bf finally split up. This was something I saw coming a few years ago, but both were to stubborn to admit it til recently. I mean this dude would sit around for the past 2 years and basically drink from sun up til sun down every day almost. It's one thing to have a few drinks, but drink nearly a case a day is crazy. I mean it was nearly impossible to deal with the man when he was drinking. Today there is no alcohol in the house. More importantly no fighting. That was something I really hated having to deal with. Sure couples fight, but almost everyday over the smallest thing is not normal. Really only thing I miss are the dogs. A yellow lab named Molley and a pug named Katie. Molley was my buddy since the day I had to move back in with the parents. Saturday she is going in to have a tumor removed, or at least that's the plan. I hope it works and she recovers. 

  7. Just over 2 months after open heart surgery and I'm still here. Well duh, I'm typing this so yeah. Surgery was a success, got a mechanical valve tickin away inside me. Seriously sounds like I'm listing to an old analog watch 24/7. Why hasn't it driven me crazy yet? Well, I'm not sure. Another bit of good news, well possibly good news. In July I have a hearing about my SSI. If I get that, my life will greatly improve.

      That's good to hear

  8. My surgery went well on Tuesday, just got home today. I actually got back sooner than I thought I would. I was told I'd be in the hospital 6-8 days, instead I was in there a total of 5. Would of been 4, but I knew that my brother and his family wanted to see me and my cousin and aunt wanted to see me, so I stayed one more night. Here in about 8 weeks I'll be back to doing all the things I was doing before.

      Glad everything went ok!  Scary shit, or it would be for me.  Even with insurance I dont wanna know what those bills are gonna be.  How long before you can listen to bass?

    3. hershy314


      Thanks guys, means a lot. Yeah it was scary for sure, but having gone through once before it wasn't too bad. Really the surgery wasn't the bad part, it's the recovery that'll get ya. They gave me a little pillow that when I have to cough I have to hug it. If I don't, the incession could tear open. I do get pains and stuff cause of the surgery, but that's to be expected. As far as being able to listen to bass again, I'm not sure. I currently have no beat, hell I don't even have a ride. But what I do know is that, I can't do anything strenious for 6-8weeks, cant lift anything over 10lbs for like 4 weeks.

  9. Tomorrow morning I'll be checking into the hospital, finally getting my much needed heart surgery done. I'll be honest and say that yes I am a little nervous, but more excited than anything. I will be getting a mechanical valve put in. Did this for a few reasons. One reason being that they last a long time, basically it will last me the rest of my life. The other reason is well part of my first reason, and that's I don't want to go through this again. Yes this is my second open heart surgery, and I know what to expect. It's cause I know what to expect is why I don't want to do it again. In the end it will be worth all the pain I'll be in for a few months.

      Good luck man. Will be thinking about you tomorrow.

    4. Ron36


      Get well soon brother. 

  10. If I get a mechanical valve during my surgery in a couple of weeks, would that make part cyborg?

      I believe so!

    3. hershy314


      Guess in a couple weeks y'all can say you know a cyborg lol.

  11. Damn nice truck, that will tow anything you want and then some. I'll admit I'm a little jealous.
  12. Nice job on the patent, and credit score. Getting a good score is hard to do, working on mine. The new Caddy is a great buy too. Not a fan of the look, but it's not mine so what I think doesn't matter. Hard work does indeed pay off.
  13. Completed my last day yesterday, saw my final grades and happy to say I'm no longer a college student.

  14. Damn close to finishing school and getting my associates in Graphic Design. Final day is January 6th 2016. I'm so glad to be finally done with school. Can't wait to see what happens next.

      It has been a long road and thanks.

  15. Just learned that I only have 3 classes left till I graduate. 3 and half years to get a degree in Graphic Design.

  16. Heard from my dr today about my CT Scan I had last Tuesday. Only problem they found was two leaky valves which at this point only have a moderate leak. They wont do anything unless it's severe. So we will just have to keep an eye on everything and see how everything goes.

      Slow down some dude. Best wishes also.

    3. hershy314


      If I slowed down even more people might think I'm dead lol. I already stopped working (not cause I wanted to, but thought it was best for my health). Bout the only thing I do is walk to the mail box and back everyday except Sunday. I working on getting my disability, sucks doing this at my age but I do need some kind of income since I'm not able to work right now.

  17. Going back to St Louis on Monday for more tests on my heart. Trying to figure out why I'm always have no energy. I get plenty of sleep, about 8 hours every day, some times more. The possibility of surgery is not out of the question yet, but I really hope it doesn't come to that.

      Maybe water? I don't know but I hope it all works out for the best of you.

    3. hershy314


      They think there is a problem where they reconnected the aorta tube to my heart when I had open heart surgery back in 2000. I'm going in for a CT Scan on Tuesday so they can know for sure.

  18. So yesterday I was in St Louis to see a heart dr cause my heart dr here was concerned about something he saw in my last echo and wanted a second opinion. As it turns out he was right to be concerned. The echo does show I am having trouble, nothing really major. I have to go back in September for a CT Scan with dye to see how bad things really are. Hopefully everything checks out and I wont need surgery for another year or so, but I'm ready for whatever happens. I mean I can't do nothi...

    1. hoit


      hang in there bro. hope all turns out for the best!

  19. Just sold my truck today. Crazy thing is not even 5 minutes after I sold it I get a call from this lady wanting to trade her Mustang for my truck. Should of asked what year, but considering I just sold my truck I guess it doesn't really matter.

  20. Just found out that I may need another heart surgery, I've got to go up to St Louis to get a second opinion. Even though I've gone through this before, it doesn't make it any easier. Oh well, gotta do what I gotta do.

      Sorry to hear the news, and hope the best of luck on everything.

  21. Lightning stuck near my house last night. Knocked out my internet some how, wont get that fixed til Friday. Some how it also fried my video card in my desktop. It wouldn't boot up til I pulled the video card out and now it works like it should. If you're wondering how I'm posting this I'm at a local coffee shop.

      My large tree got drilled last fall. I lost my internet router, one ps3, and a few other things. Was odd how it took out some things and not others. My ps3 was on a surge protector to. Was a trip. Just ate the cost and bough all new shit.
