    My leg turned red too, because of all the little broken capillaries from the restricted blood flow. Many veins in the leg are now varicose as a result of same. Leg is better, but never will be as good as it was.

    The Doc told me the Red "Spider Web Veins" would appear. They are the Body's effort at going around the clotted Vein.
    I thought I'd see little Veins, but nope! I got bad looking ruddy splotches.
    I'll know tomorrow and get back with what I learned.

    If I watch Tv or I sit down with a beer and relax my heart can stop and mis a beat, Its not uncomfortable just weird. If I keep my fingers on the wrist pulse I can feel a missed beat.

    If I get up and run it comes in and fires on all cylinders and I love long walks up hills ---my avatar is not really me.

    Its suppose to be not a problem, but I don't like the light feeling in my chest. Damn it just did it

    Premature ventricular contractions !!!!

    Going for a jog this afternoon thatle cure it.

    Frosty, I've had PVC's most of my life. One time while speaking on the phone I got a bunch in a row. I was on the floor without realizing it. I kept thinking; "I better sit down before I fall!" but I was already on the floor.

    I'd look into your diet for info on that. I still have em, but not as bad. I've had some heart med's since then as well. PVC's wont ever go away, but you dont want to many of them. Espcially not in a Row!:p

    Doctor said if it doesnt do it when you exercise then its not a problem. I had a ECG and all that crap and was told I would live fore ever but that was a long time ago.

    Seriously,-- will jog this afternoon in at least 36 degrees in the sun and love it.

    It does it most after one beer when it really relaxes me --after 3 or 4 its starts to increase in speed and never does it. Only when very relaxed.

    Ive wrote a wil out.

    I read about a Sergent in the Us army dismissed for it --he took them to court and got back in --doctor said it was not a prob. Woman next door is an athelete although old now she has it she says it a sign if good health. The heart apparanty decides that there is no need for another beat so soon after the last as there is no draw on the oxygen levels so it misses one out!!!!!!!!!!! Often refered to as atheletes heart. Maybe its not PVC.

    Dunno. Just keep pumping you basturd.

    Thanks for the help Hoyt I know you mean well.

    An alcaholic I am not I just pretend I am,--hic

    I do enjoy a beer now and again. A little of what you fancy does you good.

    Race yer to the pub, last one is a rotten egg, or gets the beers in.

    The Irish side of my family were all Alcaholics. They all died poor, losing everything they ever had to the effects of Booze.
    I drank a lot as a young guy, but not any more.

    Today's visit to the Doc: He says I wont lose any body parts, increased the Lasics and Cumiden doses and gave me a Shot of Antibiots for the Ruddyness in my lower leg. He though it looked like an infection setting in.
    Keep the Leg up whenever possible. Jeez I'm getting tired of lying down, sleeping upside down and just laying about.
    Take care guys, and thanks for the support.

    The Doc mentioned Olive oil and we have cooked with it.
    Virgin and Extra Virgin!
    That is a very kind offer Adler, but it would be too expensive.
    We sure do appreciate the offer though.

    That Scientist sounds like Ben Franklin. "In Beer n' wine there is good stuff, in water there is Bacteria!"

    Greek olives are the best!
    Were the fires in your olive groves deliberate arson?
