Default Not my idea of a good night.

Yeah, that'* me, after being at the ER for about 7 hours :(

My heart is on the fritz...I knew I'd eventually have to deal with this, as my whole family seems to have heart problems. I took myself in because I knew something wasn't right.

So far they've got it narrowed to major palpitations, Premature ventricular contraction, and tachycardia. Yeah, that'* right...I'm tacky lol.

I'm back home now, loaded on morphine, ativan, and vicodin, so I'm pretty sleepy.

What frustrates me the most out of all of this? I was going to replace my plugs and wires today!!!

Sorry to hear about this. I will keep you in my prayers.
Right now I'd worry about your plugs and wires, the ones in the Bonne can be replaced in due time.

I know how it is with that family crap. On my moms side all the men die young, she has no brothers left at this point and shes just 67. The women live nice long lives. On my dads side they all die young.

My wife dreams about us retiring. LOL - sorry honey, odds are I'll be a memory by then; esp if I keep putting in 16 - 18hr days at work.

Thanks everyone...no, I'm not that old which is why I'm a little freaked out about this...I just turned 24 last month, so this is the last thing I expected.

I was basically told to just take it easy, and don't over-exert myself. Doc says they've ruled out anything life-threatening for now, I've gotta check in with my doctor Wednesday and see where to go from here. I'm feeling a little bit better than I was last night, but I can still feel the palpitations, so I may just end up laying around all day. Isn't that what Sundays are for anyways?

I've got a few of my friends over that are probably going to either help me or do my plugs and wires for me today...they're not Bonneville crazy, but I'll turn 'em, don't worry.

Later guys!

You're gonna let your Honda friends near a Bonne.

Maybe getting the chance to work on a real motor will convert them.

Hope you feel better soon. Glad it'* not life-threatening, at this point anyway.

X2 on not letting Honda boys play with your motor. It might freak them out that your spark plugs aren't right on top of the engine. They'd have to get some dirt under their manicured fingernails.
