  • surgery over

    Well, thanks all for the prayers. I am back home recuperating from my colon surgery. It is not an easy surgery but the good news was my heart behaved itself the whole time. Only had to spend one night in ICU. Next week, I return for a new ICD and a new cast on leg. Then we hope to stay away from Mayo Clinic for a couple of months. Again thanks everyone for notes and prayers.
