Figured the mods wouldn't like my rhyming title. Fifty plus years of shotgunning, trap, skeet, hunting, is going to change for this "seasoned" shooter. Did great this year, finishing second at my home club, second at th big club with my team and first at a new to me club with our age group team there. Now, several health setbacks. Severe stenosis in aortic valve. During workup before surgery four one heart artery 100% blocked, another 80%. There weeks ago I got a stent in the 80%. Tuesday, the 15th, I had TAVR, surgery to replace the valve. Went great. Thurday, heart would stop, start, and quick to the ER. Temp external pacemaker followed by a permanent one on Friday. Asked the surgeon if, after the six week "No lift left arm very high" restriction, if I could go back to shooting trap. "Left or right?" He asked. " Right". "Three months, go easy, have fun". I'm already planning. Dig out the 1100 Trap. Start loading some 1150 fps 1 ounce #8s, finish cardio rehab and go for it. Merry Christmas to all my HR friends. It is great to be here. God bless you all. Hug your families as tomorrow is never guranteed. Stan, the 76 year old second time survivor.
