(Bill) Clinton: Lack of sleep added to health problem (Bubba needs Freeper medical advice alert)
Seattle Post Intelligencer ^ | April 21, 2010 | Deepti Hajela

Former President Bill Clinton said Wednesday that he will manage his stress better after undergoing a procedure to unclog a blocked artery, but emphasized that he has no intention of slowing down.

It would be a mistake to stop working, Clinton said at an event focusing on childhood obesity.

"I've been given this gift of life by my surgery five years ago, the medicine I take, the lifestyle changes I've made," he said. "I don't want to throw it away by being a vegetable. I want to do things with it every day."

Clinton said he would make changes like getting more sleep and being more disciplined about exercising every day.

"I intend to continue to work as hard as I can, but I'm going to manage the stress better," he said.

Clinton, who had quadruple bypass surgery more than five years ago, was hospitalized Thursday to have a clogged artery opened after he felt discomfort in his chest. Tests showed that one of the bypasses from the surgery was completely blocked.

The former president said his hectic schedule in the wake of the earthquake in Haiti probably played a role.

BC should go to Canada if he truly believes their health care is better—this is my medical advice.

Hehehehe. Just what I was thinking. No time to get much sleep in with so many chicks available to him.

Better yet...he clogged a bypass? Idiot. What’s he eating these days? The interns might be a heart-healthy snack, but a lot of the food he likes isn’t.

Anything and everything. As you can tell, he has no restraint or discipline in his life, never has, never will.

Sleep lab referral comes to mind

Middle aged, Male, s/p heart attack
A natural setup for Obstructive Sleep Apnea

A Bonus
C-Pap is not exactly a fashion accessory in bed
Women are not likely to be too excited about
sleeping next to a freight train

This is the second thread in as many minutes to mention the gubmint’s obsession with childhood obesity.

Meanwhile, we have underwear bombers, Terror training camps in Yemen and even in the USA, Iran going nuclear, Syria threatening war with Israel, Soldiers getting caught trying to poison their entire army base, A mosque being built at Ground Zero, a tanking economy, and double digit unemployment.

“Childhood Obesity” is between the kid, the parent, and his or her doctor, period.

Exactly! Clinton is in real trouble if one of his bypass grafts is already blocked. That’s some serious plaque after only four years.
