It has been a month to the day

This is a video I have of Randy from the Fourth of July trip to the lake. He was getting ready to leave on his bike for home. He had no idea we were filming. This shows his softer side. He loved his little niece.

Do you know what the symptoms of Heart Disease are?

Poor Sleep, low energy, fatigue, exertion, shortness of breath, tightness in the chest, pain in the arms or legs, the feeling of needing a nap.

Randy died on 07/28/08. He went to the doctor complaining of intense leg pain on 07/18/08. He told him how tired he was from working so many hours. He sent him home with a prescription of 500mg Naproxen (Aleve).

I miss him.

Oh, man.

He's even more wonderful than I imagined.

I dislike doctors in general, but I really fucking hate doctors who are not thorough. It's criminal.

Love, love, love.

Oh Becky. I'm sure you miss him honey. My eyes fill with tears thinking about how that must feel.

He was a sweet man. That's clear. What you had honey some people - maybe most people - never get. I guess you know that.

I know that doesn't - can't - help. I'm thinking of you.

Feel what you feel, talk and share hon.

Much love x

I haven't watched the video (because I can't--blocked at work here and at home my connection's too slow) yet.

But I will.

love, James

Oh man, that's the cutest thing I ever seen. I had to watch it a couple of times. That's the good stuff, real good stuff.

I love you Becky!

Awwwwww gave me cold chills.

I have all of those symptoms, except for the shortness of breath. Actually I went to the doctor yesterday due to chest pain. He did an EKG, which came back fine. He upped my Prozac and put me on Klonopin for anxiety and stress. He wants me to do a tread mill test. I don't think I'm going to have it done, but after reading this post...I may.

I can't believe he went in with pain in his legs and all they did was send him home with Aleve. That's such shit. Pisses me off.

I know you miss him, I miss him for you! Wish I could give you a big hug.

Love you!
