My wife keeps talking about retiring from music and we are 64 and 62 respectively. I wanna play as long as the "guy in Chicago" 'cept I've predicted I'll die at age 97. Hey, my dad turns 90 next year, so longevity in my lineage. Thanks for peekin' in Randy. I follow you on Facebook and enjoy your posts of some of the weird instruments you play in bands.I played for years with a guy in Chicago. He played alto, tenor and clarinet in multiple bands right up until the week before he passed at age 101. ... I'm 63, and will be happy if I can keep up the pace for another 15 or 20 years.
AAA (abdominal aortic aneurysm) is genetic. Get yourself tested NOW, then every 5 years or more, depending on what your doctor tells you. IIRC, it was just an X-Ray. It's a much higher risk in men. Source: that's how my father died. Smoking is a big-time contributing factor. (Seriously. Get tested. I want to keep you around. Yes, this is one of the few threads that I'm 100% serious.)My Dad only made it to 76, due to an abdominal aneurysm that was mis-diagnosed for a week before the doctors finally figured it out.
I mentioned elsewhere I was diagnosed with back spasms a couple months ago. My back has been hurting for the past month, but I haven't had a chance to make a dr. appointment. I shall do that this week.He went to the ER two days in a row and they kept telling him it was back spasms.
