FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY LVAD DAILY NEWS AND INFO FEED

12 February 2010

Captain Phil Harris From DeadliestCatch Discovery Channel


The Man Died Feb 9th 2010 ...after Looking better, was discharged by the hospital and had a stroke at home... Whoa.


His FIRST stroke was televised on one of the programs season....ummm i 4get, but i saw it... Harris was tough as nails, While at a very rough sea Capt Harris was thrown into a wall injuring his ribs/back...then later on thought he had the stomach flu... While back on land... days later, the hospital said it was a stroke!


Like me, the heart attack was mistaken for food poisoning and a week later, i saw a doctor, only to find out i didnt have any CHEST pains and ARM numbness or pain. It was only my extremely sour stomach symptom!
AND THE GOOD SAGA CONTINUES...
