Damn!! That is terrible sad

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

TrivialPursuit

To summarize, he was sweating, threw up, and his chest was heavy. He learned he had a heart attack. Had he not canceled two shows, he would have been dead. It was his LAD, which is more commonly referred to as the widow maker because once it gets blocked - you die. Few people come back from that. I think Bill Clinton had the same condition.

He made an update on his Twitter, and a longer one on his Facebook page:


I was trying to do a killer standup special this evening but I might’ve gone too far. After the first show, I felt kinda nauseous. I threw up a little but it didn’t seem to help. Then I started sweating buckets and my chest felt heavy. Turns out I had a massive heart attack. The Doctor who saved my life at the #glendale hospital told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (also known as “the Widow-Maker” because when it goes, you’re a goner). If I hadn’t canceled the second show to go to the hospital, the Doc said I would’ve died tonight. For now, I’m still above ground! But this is what I learned about myself during this crisis: death was always the thing I was most terrified of in life. When the time came, I never imagined I’d ever be able to die with dignity - I assumed I’d die screaming, like my Dad (who lost his life to a massive heart attack). But even as they cut into my groin to slip a stent into the lethal Widow-Maker, I was filled with a sense of calm. I’ve had a great life: loved by parents who raised me to become the individual I am. I’ve had a weird, wonderful career in all sorts of media, amazing friends, the best wife in the world and an incredible daughter who made me a Dad. But as I stared into the infinite, I realized I was relatively content. Yes, I’d miss life as it moved on without me - and I was bummed we weren’t gonna get to make #jayandsilentbobreboot before I shuffled loose the mortal coil. But generally speaking, I was okay with the end, if this was gonna be it. I’ve gotten to do so many cool things and I’ve had so many adventures - how could I be shitty about finally paying the tab. But the good folks at the Glendale hospital had other plans and the expertise to mend me. Total strangers saved my life tonight (as well as my friends @jordanmonsanto & @iamemilydawn, who called the ambulance). This is all a part of my mythology now and I’m sure I’ll be facing some lifestyle changes (maybe it’s time to go Vegan). But the point of this post is to tell you that I faced my greatest fear tonight... and it wasn’t as bad as I’ve always imagined it’d be. I don’t want my life to end but if it ends, I can’t complain. It was such a gift. #KevinSmith

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

The first one is hilarious, the second one is very funny and the tribute is very sweet.

From Kevin's twitter:

"Home again, home again, jiggety-jig! Home is where the heart is and the heart is feeling good! It’s actually getting more blood flow and oxygen than it has in a long time. So I am ALERT, to say the least! Thank you for all the kind words, folks - from Vegetarian Kev, Day 2!"

Kevin is cool. And he's a very lucky man.

Lately I've been thinking a lot about the heart. Wednesday i had a stress test done. I could be developing some heart issues...

I was talking to this guy, and he was telling me about his triple bypass surgery. He was in his 30's when he had it(about 9 years ago). He said one day he went out for Chinese food and afterwards developed pain in his lower sternum. He just thought it was bad food or indigestion, but after day two he decided to go to the hospital. And that's when he found out that he needed surgery. The doctors told him that if he had waited any longer to seek help, he would have died.

Take care of your heart health. It's important at any age, but especially as we get older.


Anyway, glad Kevin is on the road to recovery.

[Edited 3/2/18 15:59pm]

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.
