    I don't expect to die

    I was just thinking. In my convoluted humor sort of way.

    I'm 61 years old. in my life I've experienced the following medical procedures.

    *removal of my left hand
    *cheek bone replaced with metal
    *left wrist screwed together
    *Two disks removed from my back in two separate surgeries
    *most of my teeth removed after over 20 root canals.
    *gall bladder removed
    *appendix removed
    *1/2 of my colon removed.

    I’m more likely to run out of body parts than I am to die
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    Darn! Just don't have your sense of humor removed and you'll do fine.

    Just another gimpy, toothless, gutless wonder with a "crappy" attitude and loose screws, here, as well. It's always nice to meet another "brother" in arms.

    Can I join the new club?

    Sixth decade here, too, and I'm a gall bladder and one kidney lighter......almost died from a MRSA blood infection three years ago!

    I have a body, but what doesn't hurt, doesn't work. Most body parts are either too tight, or they leak...and the list goes on...

    I've got an idea.

    Lets get together and share. Maybe together we can build one healthy 25 year old??

    What do you think?

    You should last longer than expected since your blood supply has less parts to sustain now. Just the way I figure.

    Also in mid 60s; all the parts are there but they don't work.
    I've paid off the student loans and mortgage for a couple of docs. My wife has paid off the student loans and mortgages for a whole class full of medical students.
    She is BIONIC; held together by high tech plastic and electronics. I'm just held together by tough old glue.

    I turned 25 last week. I don't know how 'healthy' I am, depends on which standards you use.

    This sounds like the right bunch for me to hang with. If you are accepting 75 year old, partially bionic males, I'll join. Qualifications: pacemaker/defibrillator, replacement lens in both eyes, no gall bladder, shot twice, stabbed once, two torn rotator cuffs and enough scars for several people.
    Its a shame that youth is wasted on the young.
