Didn't really realize it, Mama..

Until the first few dives were over and we were all comparing how much air was still in our tanks when we came up.. normally my wife and I have about the same amount of air remaining.. this trip she would have 900-1000 pounds of air in her tank and I was in the 400 - 500 psi range, meaning I had sucked quite a bit more air than she had.. Reason being - my guess anyways - was that a valve blockage that was discovered after a dive trip in 2014 (where I was having the same issue sucking air and never able to catch my breath) had gotten worse..

I did have an EKG Tuesday, which was abnormal, but haven't been able to schedule an appt with a cardiologist yet to get another scan of the blockage..

So, to answer your question, I didn't really know before the trip, although I had a sneaking suspicion because I always run and lift weights before a dive trip and this time after running I was sucking air pretty bad and it never got better after 6 weeks of running..

Friendship is like peeing your pants.. Everybody can see it, but only you can feel the warmth..
