I want to thank all of you personally from the bottom of my heart for your thoughts and prayers it meant allot to me that i don't know how to put into words or express I'm still here and kickin just not as hard but I'll get there I'm on the road to recovery wow this t2 beat me down in the beginning but I'm winning the fight all my labs are great a1c in hospital 6.0 so why a day surgery turned into a 4 day full blown hospital visit, OK so as you know i had surgery last week that took a turn for the worse towards end of surgery by bp fell to 60 was already kinda low as it averages about 100/60 and i quit breathing something about dying in the or made the whole hospital jump for about 20 minutes, my wife told me that when she heard the code called she new it was me she just had a cold feeling at that moment I'm so glad they were able to fix the problem that had arose and brought me back i was on the ventilator for about 20 hours and the wired monster as i call it the whole time, I looked like a robot that was tore open wires and tubes everywhere they kept me in hospital till this morning now i have to do a sleep apnea test to rule that out never reacted that way over the last 6-7 surgeries maybe body is just tired of going under the knife i just need to rest for awhile when i got out i went directly to physical therapy wasn't happy about that im just really tired they said not sure ill ever walk again unassisted but time will tell the surgeons had to cut away more dead mussel than they anticipated to close the two fistulas. but i feel good hurt a little still and my chest is bruised and sore from the compressions and the paddles but getting better. i thank neverlowbg for keeping you all posted and passing on your thoughts and notes to me they cheered me up i hope that was last surgery but only rime will tell over next couple weeks.

Glad they 'brought you back".
