    I woke up Monday and had a hard time standing up. Sat on the bedside as I about tipped over. I tried to stand and on the forth try I managed to stay up. Held onto the dresser as I got dressed and walked into the kitchen. I walked like one of those "walking dead" folks. My balance was gone. I tried to get a handle on what was happening and thought I had had a stroke. My daughter said I was going to the hospital as it was obvious something was haywire. Went in on Monday morn and they did brain, heart, blood and strength tests. When I first went in and got a room, I went to the bathroom which was a short walk from the room. I came back and tossed up the glass of orange juice I had had before leaving. I am back at my daughter's place and will be leaving for home on Friday. I am still a bit unbalanced, well always have been, but this is different. While here in SC I did take a deer and my gson took a nice one, 3x3 with double eyeguards. At 10 yrs old he has taken 9 deer so far. Has been a good stay and was going to be here until the 5th, but shortened the trip due to the latest issues. Hope I can still keep a TW upright, I do know my flying days and driving semi's is over unless they can figure out what is going on. At least I do have 4 wheelers I can take on some of our expeditions, just won't be the same though.

    Hey, Mr. Straight...sorry to hear you're feeling poorly.
    Sounds like a mini-stroke, but then I ain't no doctor.

    Will you be hearing their conclusions soon?
    Be sure to let us know.

    Are you a smoker? Sounds like a great time to quit!
    Hell, you're just 70 and you have a lot of good years left...take good care of them.

    I just read your are one tough old sumbitch, ain't ya?
    "Jumpmaster", eh? Probably just too many hard landings!
    All those jumps static line on those big ol' T-10 canopies?
    Much respect for the Airborne!!

    I have 211 civilian skydiving jumps on good sport equipment, for the most part. Mainly soft landings but quite a few really hard ones, too. Enough to still being able to feel the effects of those at 75!
    And then there were "a few" motorcycle crashes, *really* feeling the results of those.
    But you know what? I wouldn't change a damn thing...and I bet you wouldn't either.

    If you used to smoke and drink and quite andthen all these medical issues started, you should go back to drink'in & smok'in. Of course, I kid and you should stick to candy cigarettes and apple juice.

    Be well my friend!

    My prayers are with you Plumbstraight. Get better ASAP. Hopefully it's just some vertigo or something simple that can be diagnosed easily.
