Headed to Baton Rouge, LA for some firearms training with Matt Vincent. Needed to do some gear prep. Had a good planning meeting with him. TJ from TG Holsters (Use NICK15 for 15% OFF) stopped by to drop off some of the holsters we will be working with this weekend. Got a good training session in doing some deadlifts and Sorinex CMB Snatches for time. Then crushed some delicious Steak seasoned by Tacticalories.
Three months later, I suddenly went from 170lbs to 120 in 3 weeks. Turned out to be Crohn’s Disease, an auto-immune condition that attacks the G/I system. Lived in a hospital for a month+, emergency surgery to remove large intestine which doc said would have disintegrated & killed me if they waited a few more hours. Lived for 6 months with an ostomy (intestine sticking out my abdomen into a bag)
