  • surgery tomorrow

    Well, they have finally deemed me healthy enough to remove the lower portion of my colon tomorrow. They would not even replace my defibrillator last week due to this infection too high a risk to make another incision. Soon as surgery is over I will be back active on transplant list. The good news is I will be monitored on the transplant floor while I am in hospital so I can check it out. I am asking all my fellow HCMer's for prayers during this scary time for me & my family. Will check in, in a week or so and let you know how surgery went. Should be fun to have as I am still on crutches from broken foot and ankle. Hurry up March as it will get better.

          prayers

          you are in the prayers of me and my family. I also offer to you being added to a prayer list at my church with membership of about 14,000. That would be a lot of people praying for you, but I need your permission! Just say ok and it will be done.
