Barry Finn is in the hospital recovering from a mild heart attack. What he took for flu symptoms were disguised by his diabetes.

I talked with him about ten minutes ago and he's in relative good spirits. He expects to be there for a couple more days so we'll miss him at this weekend's sessions.

He is not really anxious for calls or visitors, thus good wishes should be posted here. Otherwise, PM me - Tom

Thanks for telling us this. We (speaking for everyone) cherish Barry and I'm sure we're all relieved to hear that he's being well taken care of.

It's all to easy to ignore symptoms until it is too late. Remember that! I will.

Now, Amos, if yer gonna threaten Barry that you'll "sic a bevy of adoring wenches on your sorry ass" if he doesn't get well soon, he'll be in that hospital bed waaay too long.


Barry, I can't say I'm surprised that you overdid the late nights and long music sessions and drving and stuff, but I'm really sorry you ended up in the hospital.   Glad you survived the heart attack, though, and hope you'll take advantage of the situation to get some much needed rest.    Love and light and strength to you and yours, and please get well soon!

Might be worth getting the word out about what happened to Barry. I had a mild heart attack 2 months ago. It didn't feel like one - I'd been having chest pain for about three months, but thought it might be oesophageal spasms (I've had that for a long time, and occasional episodes of reflux). Or at worst angina. Then I got an attack that felt no worse than the previous ones, but wasn't brought on by exertion. Called an ambulance; the EMT guys did an ECG and it looked normal to them, but they took me into hospital anyway. Blood tests showed a mild heart attack.

They did a whole lot of investigations, but the clincher was the treadmill test, hooked up to an ECG. I didn't get very far on it before they called a halt. The nurse looked quite concerned, then asked if I was diabetic. From what the ECG was saying, I ought to have been curled up on the floor moaning, but I didn't feel much at all, just a bit tired and uncomfortable. This sort of masking of symptoms is common in diabetics, and also in women. Dunno why it happened to me, being neither.

The moral is, get chest pains looked at sooner rather than later. If I'd continued to ignore what was happening to me, I'd doubt if I'd have seen the year out. As it is, an angioplasty seems to have more or less sorted the problem.

Good luck, Barry.

Unfortunately this has to be changed to an OBIT thread.

The mudcat has been down for a few days and during that time he passed
away. You can find out more on the face book pages for Mudcat and on Barry's page, too.
