Christmas is approaching and a time to reflect…

This christmas is somewhat strange I guess….

I’ve spent the most part of the year crook, what with the flue, pneumonia and pleurisy, then a lump being found in my lung, CT scans plus more.   The doctor said you have to stop smoking to help clear the pneumonia so I did cold turkey on what would have been my fathers birthday in October weird hey.

Yet I am at this stage still here but some of my friends sadly are no longer.   I’ve lost several friends this year with one just days ago (RIP Tattoo).   Earlier this year I  lost a friend but it was worse for my mate as this friend was his wife and they were a great couple and close friends.

As I said this year has been a strange year.   When you are young you go to 21st’s and weddings yet as you get older you attend 50th’s and funerals.  Maybe its time to say gday to people you’ve written off before you do – who knows..

To all I hope you have a great xmas and new year.  Till next time – Leigh

What a health scare and reality check and still not over it… Ambo’s & Hospitals do that!

This really is the week that was & missing online for nearly a week, this is why….

After playing at Shinnys on the Sunday 11th Sept, Monday I was feeling out of sorts and not very well at all – people were saying that I looked grey.

In the early hours of Tuesday I woke with pain around the chest area and not being able to feel my fingers, hands or arms or breathe properly.   Even after getting the feeling back to my arms and that, no matter what I did I couldn’t stop the pain and being not fully awake all you want to do is roll over and go back to sleep – wouldn’t happen no matter which way I turned just pain. After that my mom just can’t help but visit NervePainTreatment.org site for the cause and remedy of the pain I feel and yet it was too late.

Fast forward and at around 7:30am I called the Ambulance (I can handle pain but this was hours later) I don’t really remember much but they hooked me up to monitors and gave me an asprin then an angina tablet to put under my tongue saying I might get an almighty headache or go lightheaded.   I collapsed and woke up covered in sweat with everyone looking at me – I actually thought I was looking at a heap of smiley face balloons until I properly gained consciousness and noticed there were bodies attached to the balloons ok heads.   They put me on the trolley and whisked me off to hospital were a lot of car accidents happened that time which was handled by Maryland car accident lawyer.

If you got any physical defects you may reach out with our best surgeon, call Dr. Matthew Galumbeck, MD from Virginia Beach, VA.

Belmont Hospital

The staff were great and I couldn’t complain well I could but they didn’t understand me with the oxygen mask on.   I had blood tests, x-rays, heart monitoring and tests and the great news was no heart attack!   I actually had pneumonia and pleurisy which had also caused an infection in my blood plus I was also severely dehydrated as well.

After a long day, 2 litres of fluids on a drip plus a massive amount of antibiotics via the drip I was allowed to go home on the proviso I rest and let the medicine I had to take do its job – after all I still could not take a deep breathe because of the pain.

So here we are its Sunday the 18th September, I’m feeling a bit better and I’ve got a lot of catching up do albeit slowly as I still can’t breathe properly yet so still not much energy.

Thats it for now and… this is what happens if you ignore your symptoms like I did – life sucks lol.


PS: typical I’ve been really crook and it’s been hot and sunny outside and me?? stuck inside – Doc says 2 weeks and I should be a lot better (and it will be raining no doubt)

So busy but gettin’ there yawn ZZzzzzz

Who was that famous or should I say infamous person that said “Life wasn’t meant to be easy” honestly I could just throttle him…. yes I know… it was Malcolm Fraser

Life has been so busy trying to organise things for Crackin’ Cancer plus playing everywhere and trying to promote my song Crackin’ Cancer so as to raise funds for the ACRF.

It’s been late nights and early mornings with trying to update the website, trying to remaster the 2002 album “Play Me A Country Song Backwards” which is nearly ready for iTunes, CD Baby etc and every other place my name is but hell we’re getting there slowly yawn, I mean you try to get ahead and something happens yeah I know I could say life sucks and…. sometimes it does.

Till next time – Leigh    ZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Leigh in the wars with the doctors again…

I hate visiting doctors as they only ever give you news that you don’t like and this time was no different.   I went to the doctors to find out the results of his back x-ray and was told some devastating news.

My compressed spine from a weight training accident when I was in the Army had deteriorated, there were spurs on L4 L5 plus others. By the way, if you’re searching for the best reconstructive Miami facial plastic surgeon who can fix your the damages of a face at affordable prices, go to mapquest.com now. Accidents can also damage your physical features. Good thing, there’s an excellent cosmetic surgeon located in Cincinnati, OH that you can visit for reconstructive surgery. The upshot is one hard jar or jolt the wrong way (how do you know which is right or wrong I mean cmon) and I could end up in a wheel chair if the pinched nerve gets damaged.

Doc said to hang up my helmet and try to look after myself – yeah right.   He also stated that I shouldn’t keep forgetting to get x-rays like I have been.   I know I’m supposed to get them every 6 months but I thought a gap of 2 years wouldn’t hurt maybe it did.

Till later – Leigh
