CHAPTER 27 - Recent most best ride I ever had, "I'm alive and still kicking"

Chapter 27 - October 2013 - Best hospital staff and surgeon Commissioned

Chapter 27 - A picture is worth a thousand words - Memory Lane - Inspired and Based on a True Life Story

While the surgery for this operation took several hours for this marvelous surgeon with the name Michael Castellano at the 501 Seaver Ave location, to perform and the 5 day hospital stay for re-cooperating after the surgery, the Leg work to set it up took just over 5 months of seeing various doctors, going thru various tests and also getting doctor clearances.

While we are on the subject of testing I also had the opportunity to be sitting next to the famous singer Vito Picone (health test site) from the mid fifties that made the number one hit of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and also later gained his own local TV Show plus starring in several movie character actor roles such as "Goodfellas". Based on google he is still performing in different parts of the country.....Nick..October 29, 2013

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vito_Picone

While I was in the hospital several of the nurses said I resembled Jack Nicholson even though I just cannot see this resemblance or agree with this comment but my daughter also suggested that I looked like Jack ...

Vito Picone the Famous "Goodfellas" actor is situated to the right of Frank Vincent another star in his own right......

This is my dream photo from over sixty years ago taken in Akron,Ohio when I later drove mum up to Canada to visit her brother Jack and his family.....This photo was taken with a family relative when I was roughly 16 years of age....This was also the age that I and a friend named Curly would visit Mary Ellen after school was over for the day......Mary Ellen and I are still communicating to this day thanks to 'Classmates' where I have also met many other friends from the past.......


Video and audio clips


The famous "Goodfellas" fight scene starring Frank Vincent, Vito Picone and Joe Pesci......


As I mentioned in the title of this Chapter, the Hospital staff and my magnificent Surgeon were able to keep me alive, feeling well and still kicking......Needless to say the monster in this video is supposed to represent me the author....


Another marvelous and Funny scene with Jack Nicholson and Nurse Ratched.......


"You ain't seen nothing yet.!!!"


This wonderful song definitely also belongs in this story line

Yesterday on Oct 7, 2014 it was 53 years that Elizabeth And I were married to each other which in itself made for a glorious occasion in our lives but I also received a phone call from Dr.Megna's office and received further good new from a lady called Dina who said that my biopsy from a colonoscopy that was performed last most showed up good and I was cancer free.!!!

cooperhawks 4 days ago Hello??? A colonoscopy doesn't simply detect colon cancer. It is also a preventative measure that screens for pre-cancerous polyps and REMOVES them. A spoonful of yogurt that can only detect cancer that is already in your body is hardly a reasonable alternative to a procedure that can prevent you from getting colorectal cancer in the first place by finding and removing the root cause......Note: This comment was one of the many comments added to the, "new cancer test with yogurt instead of a colonoscapy".....See comment above with date of Oct 4, 2014.

~ About a week ago my wife and I met a bunch of old timers down at Great Kills Park and it turns out that one of them sang with the singing group known as 'The Expressions' ~ He said he knew Vito Picone as they both went to the same High School together when growing up ~ He also indicated that Vito married 4 times and that he was in the 'Goodfella's' movie, which I already knew ~ This came about when I mentioned that Elizabeth's cousin was in 'The Godfather' Film and when Elizabeth mentioned Willi Cicci he called out Joe Spinnel's name ~

I guess the young lady that Vito was sitting with at the Health Test Site that I mentioned early on and above was not his daughter but more likely his wife lol ~
