    Hello everyone,

    I want to take a moment here to update my friends and family on something that has happened in my life. Last Wed. I had a blurry/wavy vision in my right eye while I was driving to work which I thought was something stuck in my eye. I decided to call my eye doctor to check it out. They ran some tests and told me to get to the hospital asap. Well everyone what it was turned out to be I was on my way to a heart attack, I got here just in time. I have been here since Wed and I am under great care but my heart and kidneys have suffered significant damage. I apparently have had high blood pressure for awhile which we all thought was just anxiety. I am expected to be able to live a semi normal life meaning no fast foods ,restaurants,smoking you name it. I am very grateful to be alive right now and have every expection of being around and doing everything possible to keep it that way. As alot of you know I own a small business laseriffic which I will be selling here in the near futute for the benefit of my health.
    My last bit of information is get your blood pressure checked regularly as it has serious side effects if you dont.

    Sorry to hear that. Take care of yourself.

    And once your on BP meds, don't settle if they have side effects that suck. Work with your doctor until you find one that works for you. I recommend trying Diovan. I LOVED that med. Had the most amazing dreams every night while on it. Unfortunately, I had to go off and change to something else once the dreams started moving into reality with mild hallucinations. But if you can do that BP med to control your blood pressure and get the great dreams without that side effect, it's fantastic.

    #15 1 year ago

    All the best to you Joe. When I was collecting in the hobby, always loved your work. It will be missed.
    I'm glad you're getting treatment. I've been treated over 30 years myself for high blood pressure. Your message is spot on. Get checked and get treated.

    #16 1 year ago

    Joe my friend. We spoke couple weeks ago about my wife and her heart attack on long call. Omg brother, i am in shock. You know i care for you and i wish you complete recovery and good health.
    We will talk soon and I wish all the best in your future plans with business. Sounds like a good time to step back, slow down, enjoy life.

    #17 1 year ago

    I have had 7 different BP meds already and they feel they have the correct ones. No dreams but I do feel better. I have a chemical stress test tomorrow and if no blockage shows I should be released. I will be closing laseriffic next week but will keep products stocked the best that I can through Cointakers and Planetary till the business is sold. I really love what I do but I happen to love life and my family more.

    #18 1 year ago

    Eric call me next week .

    #19 1 year ago

    Wow.. Take care of yourself. Feel better..

    #20 1 year ago

    Holy crap,Joe; do what you gotta do. Kind of amazing you caught things in good time

    #21 1 year ago

    Take care of yourself and do whatever is necessary for you and your family.

    #22 1 year ago

    Hey Joe
    Hope that tomorrow's test is OK and that you will be released.
    Wishing you the best.

    Sorry to hear, glad you are under great care!

    #24 1 year ago

    Joe,

    Get well, man. For those who haven’t interacted with him, Joe is a GREAT guy. We did a project together, and you, sir, are a class act. I wish you the best. Who knows, maybe one day pinball stuff will be considered relaxing to you and you’ll come back to it.

    Best of luck and health.

    Blessings to you Joe . You have a strong constitution . Rob Knapp

    #26 1 year ago

    Sorry to hear this Joe , many of us have really enjoyed your work and all the great toppers you have produced now and for years to come . Thanks for your artistic talents and creativity !!! Get well soon !!

    #27 1 year ago

    Joe - close calls are scary, but glad you are still with us. Seems there was a thread about 6 months ago about how to recognize signs of a heart attack (or maybe it was a blast-o-gram email from a friend... not sure). Worth looking up... In any case, do what you can to try to keep it that way.

    Sorry to hear it but that’s the right perspective! Best of luck to you, take care of yourself, and just consider our books settled if they’re not already.

    Joe:

    Boy I am sure glad you had warning signs. Thank god!! I hope you feel better and get well soon. I have been on blood presssure meds for 15 years. Runs in our family. Bad genetics. Your toppers are simply amazing!! I have them on most of my machines. You have been a asset to the pinball community for many years. I appreciate all you have done for me over the years.

    Get better. God Bless. Tony

    Get well soon

    #37 1 year ago

    Hey, Joe, I got my LOTR topper last week, thanks for your quality work. Also, I'm not sorry for you I'm actually glad. You are lucky to have found out before the heart attack hit. Now you can take better care and live a long life.

    #38 1 year ago

    Glad you got in there in time! Take care of yourself - and if others do have high blood pressure,you need to get it corrected. Serious shit.

    #39 1 year ago

    Joanne and I are very sorry to hear about your close call.

    We absolutely love all the toppers you have made for us and trust that you focus on health and family.

    Cheers Buddy,

    Hi Joe,

    I am glad you are OK now, as I know what you are going through.
    Time to slow it all down to heal.
    You'll be just fine, and are taking the right steps......
    Look forward to seeing you in full R&R mode.

    #47 1 year ago

    Thank god you caught it in time, Joe. Hope you're feeling better and will be back home soon.

    #48 1 year ago

    Wow sorry to hear that Joe. You might not remember me but I bought a few toppers and some mods in the past. Early reaction can make all the difference so thank God you acted quickly. Take care of yourself and focus on the loved ones and your health. That's pretty much all that matters in my book. All the best
