Super-Royce!



I want to take today's post to recognize something I just found out about earlier this week. I was shocked to hear that our own Royce Thrower endured not one, BUT TWO heart attacks right after HeroesCon last month. One person would think having just one in a day would be enough, but Royce is what you might call an over-achiever. My thinking is he told his first heart attack "Is that all you got, punk?" and then laughed through the second one came shortly thereafter. You are the MAN Royce!

Seriously, I am sorry you had to go through that whole thing. I can't imagine what it was like. But I am very happy that you are doing better and getting stronger. Take care of yourself!

That's some scary stuff...but I'm glad to hear you're well, Royce! Get better soon! :D

Wow. Royce I hope you feel better.


And I hope this isn't just another ploy by Gene to make me think there is a Royce...;)

Take care, Royce! Hope you're doing better?

I'm glad I read Gene's blog, or I might have never heard about this!

Get well soon.

Thanks for all the well wishes guys ( and girl! ) Gene is right, there was the original attack that I felt coming on which prompted a call to 911. That one hurt pretty bad obviously, but once they started the transport to the ER, an "associate" of the first one showed up and tried to finsh the job. THAT one hurt like a Son of a.... well you get the idea. Luckily that occurred in the ambulance and was expertly treated along the way to the hospital. Scary morning, all in all! But hopefully, I am good as new and really feel a little better everyday! Very cute post Gene. Funny, I really WAS feeling a little "crabby" that afternoon as I was forced to lie on my back motionless but awake for 10 hours straight before I was allowed to move even the least little bit. So the pic is definitely appopriate! Again, thanks for all the well wishes. It REALLY means a lot! Side note: Little John, I actually thought about joking with you and Gene about how Gene had to "kill me off" after you failed to meet me at Heroes just to avert suspicion about my non-existence. lol
