Happy New Year 2009 from the Eastern Time Zone
2009-01-01

Posted on 12/31/2008 9:04:33 PM PST by rabscuttle385

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind ?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days o' lang syne ?

For auld lang syne, my jo,
For auld lang syne,
We’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stowp !
And surely I’ll be mine !
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pu’d the gowans fine ;
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary foot,
Sin auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl’d i' the burn,
Frae morning sun till dine ;
But seas between us braid hae roar’d
Sin auld lang syne.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere !
And gie's a hand o’ thine !
And we’ll tak a right gude-willy waught,
For auld lang syne.

I was already having a subdued New Year’s Eve due to some unexpected muscule pain in my left arm, but I feel even worse, since the first thing I saw in the New Year was the Clintons hugging and dancing on live TV. Where’s the Scotch!!??

Happy New Year East Coast! One hour to go here in Chicagoland. Mighty cold in both places. Had a nice prime rib dinner at the restaurant with family tonite and feeling good. Hope you all have a better New Year than the last, which shouldn’t be too hard considering what’s happened this past year. Here’s to better times ahead.

Did anyone notice that the NYC Times Square ball didn’t drop when Hill/Billary pushed the button?

Dems can’t even drop the ball right.

Happy New Year East Coast!
It's my birthday, spending it alone. I cheered myself up and made a car salesman very happy today by bucking the economy and buying a new car! I must be crazy...what the Heck!

At age 28? I don’t think so. I’m not obese and have no other health issues, saving near-sightedness and having a cold at the moment.

Can you find a comfortable position for that arm -- so that it remains comfortable as long as you do not change positions? If the pain returns -- even if you haven't moved, you better suspect angina!

Such warning signs are definitely not something to ignore (says the guy who now has two stents...)

Happy slightly buzzed New Year.

There won’t be enough alcohol in NYC to alleviate the pain come the 20th of this month.

Oh no...

Thanks for the concern. It definitely hurts less when I lie down, and it subsided somewhat when I took some Tylenol.

At age 28? I don’t think so. I’m not obese and have no other health issues, saving near-sightedness and having a cold at the moment.

Young is the worst age to have them. You haven't had enough years to develop the collateral circulation that lessens the impact of an infarction. For young people, the first sign of a heart attack is usually sudden death.

As far as a cold is concerned, look at this:
Blood Coagul Fibrinolysis. 2007 Dec;18(8):713-8.

Inflammatory changes during the 'common cold' are associated with platelet activation and increased reactivity of platelets to agonists.

Kreutz RP, Tantry US, Bliden KP, Gurbel PA.
Sinai Center for Thrombosis Research,
Baltimore, Maryland 21215, USA.

Epidemiologic studies have shown increased rates of myocardial infarction after upper respiratory tract infections. We hypothesized that changes in platelet activation and reactivity and inflammation occur during the 'common cold'. Previously healthy individuals with viral upper respiratory tract infections were studied (n = 18). Venous blood samples were obtained during the time of infection and again after 6 weeks. Platelet reactivity was higher during the 'common cold' as measured by low-dose ADP-induced aggregation (46 +/- 28 versus 27 +/- 21% 6 weeks after presentation, P = 0.003) and was higher than control individuals (22 +/- 8%, P = 0.003). Platelet P-selectin expression increased during illness (2.3 +/- 0.2% CD62-positive platelets versus 1.8 +/- 0.1% at 6 weeks after presentation, P = 0.017; and 1.7 +/- 0.2% in the control group, P = 0.03). C-reactive protein (3.7 +/- 1.3 versus 2.2 +/- 1.5 mg/l, P = 0.004) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (27.6 +/- 28 versus 12.7 +/- 9 pg/ml, P = 0.03) were increased during the 'common cold'. There were no significant differences in levels of soluble P-selectin (P = 0.18), soluble vascular adhesion molecule-1 (P = 0.59) and soluble intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (P = 0.23). Increased platelet reactivity and activation during the 'common cold' are associated with inflammation as measured by increased levels of C-reactive protein and tumor necrosis factor-alpha, but not increased levels of endothelial markers. These findings support a pro-aggregatory state that, in part, explains the thrombotic events shown by epidemiological studies.
