The only "pedal to the metal" will be the brake.
My wife was diagnosed with blood clots in her lungs in the beginning of the year.
5 days in the hospital, another week at home.
Followed by shots, pills, dietary changes, twice-weekly blood tests and doctor visits...
For months.

Not fun...

I will send all the healing light, and prayers I can, to Zakk,..he is one of my heroes
yellow light is a healing wavalength,..so I will picture beams of yellow light going into and filling his lungs.

Zakk is the balls, I love him. He has great taste in music.

I wish her all the best. That´s good to hear.


Did she ever smoke?

My grandfather was doing nothing else but making cigarets and smoking them every day and all day long, watching TV. He quit smoking one day to the other and just one and a half year later he had water in his lungs. After needing oxygen all day long, just being able to sit around and being unable to walk more than three steps upstairs without taking a break, he died after 5 years of that.


Actually I don´t know if Zakk also got that problems from smoking, but maybe. Hopefully he stops, it´s a burden anyway. Lung problems are the worst you can have because there´s nothing you can do if anything hits this tiny network.

I wish him the best.

Quit drinking?
Well, if he doesn't want to take another trip to the ER, that would be a must.
