    Exclamation I'm getting Medevac'd to Anchorage hospital tonight...

    Looks like I've been having symptoms of heart "disease". I'm at the ER waiting for the helicopter or fixed wing to transport me there.

    I might not post post a picture tonight but I'll keep you posted.

    Man! You're leading an 'exciting' life, Spin!

    I'm suggesting you go for 'relaxed and boring'.

    Keep us posted.

    Oh my!

    Our family is sending prayers, smoke, and wishes your way!

    As you may know, our common friend Willy N, was also just medivaced to Anchorage from Homer. His heart problem turned out to be something minor. So our prayers and best thoughts are that your diagnosis will be the same.

    What you might not know, is that SWMBO'd and I have some experience with heart problems, and Anchorage hospitals, and they've all been fantastic to work with. I expect you'll receive fine treatment.

    Please have your Captain keep us up to date, during those times you may feel a little too weak to post on the internet.

    Again, all the best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.

    Good luck. Not the best way for a scenic flight but its great that they can get you to a place where the serious stuff can be done.

    Hope your flight is safe and you get the care you need in Anchorage.

    Fingers crossed. I'll look northwest at the stars before I go to bed and think of you.

    Hopefully they'll give you some good "relax" medication.
    Make the trip more interesting.
    Sounds like you're in good hands.
    Prayers and smoke from here my friend.

    Best wishes! Here's hoping this is more along the line of "early warning" symptoms.

    get well soon, I'll be thinking of you
    The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Thank you all for the good wishes. I'm still at the ER. They just put a nitroglycerin patch on my chest. I'm hooked to a bunch of machines. The hospital in Anchorage has finally got a bed for me there. Should be Medevac'ed in a couple hours or so. I was hoping for a scenic flight.

    The cardiologist in Anchorage is a military doctor but he's working at the hospital tonight. Husband says the military doctors have seen a lot of action and that they are really good and experienced.

    Damn! Just saw this & am hoping the flight was uneventful & you are through all the hospital rigamarole.

    All my best & further hoping this is a false alarm - or at least nothing serious!
