    Open Heart Surgery

    One of my coworkers, an older gentleman who has been a mentor and in a lot of respects, like another father to me had open heart by pass surgery today. He had five blockages. He pulled through the surgery fine. He still has a long way to go, but it looks like he is going to make a full recovery. I am very thankful. His first grandson was just born about a year ago and it looks like he has a second chance to continue being that proud grandpa.

    Praise be to God.

    Please continue to pray for my friend to continue to recooperate.

    Good news - for a new lease on life.

    To be hoped the grandkids grow a lot more years still able to enjoy their grandfather - and he them.

    Best wishes to your friend, Doc, from one grandpa to another.

    I had quadruple bypass surgery in 1993, still going strong today.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Went and saw my friend yesterday. Even though he was tired and out in left field on pain killers, I don't think that I had been more happier to see him in my life. He is recovering nicely. Thanks for all of the well wishes and prayers. You guys are an awesome group!
