    I really appreciate all of the Prayers and well wishes from everyone, Thank You!!
    I also would like to thank the ones that called me and kept me cheered up through a pretty rough time.
    This site and it's members "The Brotherhood of Catfishermen" mean more to me than any of you will ever know. Though being huge distances apart and most of you, never having met me, still extended a huge helping hand in a time of need. That is what this brotherhood is all about. You all are truely brothers and sisters to me, Thanks Again..... JW (Dreadnaught)

    They fond a bit of a problem with hardening of the arteries(the smaller ones) in my brain, which caused the stroke. they said with the proper meds and if I quit smoking it may not ever give me any trouble again. But they did say that the numbness that I have now could stay with me or it could just go away in the near future. I am hoping for the ladder of the two, LOL!!!

    Hmmmm, Maybe a BOC "quit smoking support group" is in order. Then we can quit together, and help out JW.

    Good to hear that you are home JW.

    Hypnotism, I know it sounds crazy but it works JW. It's the easy way to quit, I did it and it's like you never smoked. It worked for me for over a year, then for what ever .$#@^&*(_%$# reason I smoked a cigarette at a BBQ contest with some people I work with, let's just say I have to quit all over again! Once you do quit don't mess with them again,they'll get ya.

    It's great to see you back buddy, you are tougher than nails and can whip the smokin habit. We are sure glad you are OK, we were really concerned.

    I also would like to thank everyone, for there prayers and phone calls. It meant alot to John and I. I was shocked on how many of you called JW at the hospital, believe it or not you all called him more than his own family did lol, and for that I'm very greatful and I know he is too. I realized how tight-knit a family this is and I'm glad to be a part of it.

    JW, where you are, I've already been. I quit smoking 18 years ago from 2 1/2 packs a day. It can be tough but a good strong catfisherman can do it. Your mini-stroke is like a "check engine" light on your truck, theres something that needs to be fixed. I had three. Hang tough and get well, we need you on the board.

    JW monday will be 3 years for me without smoking. Doctor told me that If I would like to stay around and fish. That I had better quit. Had 99% blockage and smoking was my only problem.
    So 2 more days and it will be 3 years.( with 3 stints in that time)
    It was easy that time. WI think I went around 3 months without even thinking I had to have one.
    So hang in there, And just throw them down. Also If your lucky like me. It being near the brain on me I would be safe. AS Mine is in my big toe.. HEHE

    Glad you are back home JW.
    In regards to the smoking, I think that if everyone who knows him would buy a 2x4 and if you see him with a cigarette swat him on the back of the head it would only take a few months to get him tobacco free. THAT'S what brotherhood is all about:0a24: ...W
