'Trumpy,' a faultsman, fire fighter, moderator here and frequent contributor to the board apparently has suffered a serious coronary emergency.

His wife Vikki posted this morning at http://electrical-contractor.net/ubb/Forum9/HTML/000435.html in the first entry.

Let us all hope he and his wife make it through this ordeal and wish them the very best.

Bjarney,
Vikki and I aren't actually married, although, that could change in the near future!.
We've been "going out" together for the last 2 or 3 years and we live together, so I suppose that we are kinda married, just don't have the bit of paper to prove it.
The world has taken on a whole new perspective for me, in the last 12 hours and to think that I nearly died, takes a bit of getting used to.
But, I'm alive, that's all that matters to me at the moment.
I'd just like to say that all of the posts that happened over in the Non-US area, had me rather choked up, I never realised that so many people cared about me, especially over a Bulletin Board of all things.
But, however, this is Bill's ECN board, everyone cares here, I reckon.
Thanks for your time guys, it's most appreciated!.

Marc,
Thanks, mate!.
It's only a thing like this that shows us all, just how precious life is!.
I've got to make some hard changes to my life, but, hey, if it means that I can talk to you people a wee bit longer, bring it on, I say!!.

Trumpy,

I hope everything is OK, and I am glad that you are back. It gave me, as well as others, a chance to reflect somewhat.
My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Hang in there, buddy!

A scare like that sure puts things in perspective.

Take it easy, and the best of luck to both of you.

Trumpy,
Thank you greatly for toughing this one out.
You're a guy that's highly valued here, and we certainly don't anything happening to you.
Please take it easy on yourself, and rest up.
God Bless...S

Geez Trumpy, take it easy and take car of yourself. We can't afford to lose any good electricians. I second the motion to keep Vikki around, mighty handy gal!
