Thoughts and Prayers

I haven't been active on the board very much recently as I have been dealing with some serious health issues. I am scheduled for surgery at the Mayo Clinic on Thursday and would appreciate your thoughts and prayers. This is a revision to a surgery that didn't go well 14 years ago. Last time, an anticipated 3 day stay in the hospital turned into 30 days while I was fed through an IV in my neck due to complete paralysis of my digestive tract. The doctor who did the original surgery passed away unexpectedly shortly afterward and it took 12 years to find a doctor willing to work on me. I am thankful that I have two of the best surgeons in the world willing to work on me, but in the back of my mind I am dwelling on what went wrong last time.
 
Not Sleeping Well in Rochester,
 
Chris

Chris,
You've got friends all over the country sending positive energy your way.  Be strong and try to put the past behind you.  It's 12 years later which means there's been 12 years of new medical understanding and advancements in technology since the last time you were treated.  I got faith buddy, you're gonna do great!  There's a Crawl in Nashville next spring that needs you to be there!
 
Speedy Recovery!
Buddy

Chris,
I reckon you're still in recovery from a rigorous surgery, but the sooner you let us know how things went, the sooner a lot of people here will be able to exhale.
 
Hoping for some good news,
Buddy

I'm just hearing about your surgery now. We were out of town the last 12 days and just returned home today. 
Our thoughts and prayers are with you!

So, I am out of the hospital and back home in Kansas City. My 5 hour surgery turned into 12 hours and a 2 1\2 day stay in ICU on a ventilator. I was then transferred to a room in the older part of Saint Mary's Hospital where I didn't have a good internet connection to recuperate. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers.

After all that, I hope the surgery was a complete success.  Here's hoping for no more visits to Rochester in your future.

Glad to hear you're home!  Was thinking of KC today as David Sanders was sending me Meshuggah Bagel photos at 12:30 this morning!  Could this be a coincidence?

Great to hear from you, CNW and good to hear that you're home 

We thought about you as we breezed through Kansas City on out trip last month for a quick lunch at Danny Edward's BBQ
 
We'll be back in Kansas City next fall on our cross country trip for a slightly longer period- around a day and a half or so- hoping we can connect then
