I met Ray in March 1978 through his wife, Meg, who is a very good astrologer. At 10:30 a.m., on February 4, 1978, in Dayton, Ohio, Ray had suffered a heart attack, probably caused by a clot in the artery. Meg asked me to do a Med-Scan because she had progressed Ray's chart to July of 1978 and did not like what she saw: in fact, she saw his potential death at that time.
Ray suffered from arterial sclerosis (clogging of the arteries with plaque buildup). At first his condition had been misdiagnosed as arthritis. Since Ray had been complaining of shoulder and arm pains, the doctor thought Ray had bursitis or arthritis and in 1976 prescribed water pills to reduce the high blood pressure. Ray faithfully took the pills for six to seven months and then began to feel terribly dehydrated, while the pain in the arms and shoulders increased. So, he quit taking the pills without informing the doctor. Since he felt the doctor had not helped his situation but worsened it, Ray unfortunately never went to another doctor about the continuing pain, which was actually the sign of an impending heart attack: especially in the left side pain very frequently occurs under the shoulder blade (the scapula) and down the arm when a heart attack is imminent; sometimes shooting pains run down the arm, or there is a tingling sensation or numbness occurring for a few seconds to minutes in the hands and then disappearing.
Ray's arterial sclerosis was finally diagnosed after the first heart attack in 1978. His diet aggravated the disease: he was strictly a meat and potatoes man; he also enjoyed fat, eating it from meat, eggs fried in grease, etc. At the time I met him he was 5'9" tall and weighed 148 pounds.
An interesting note: Ray had four kidneys.
