Wow! Glad that you made it through that.
That is almost exactly the description of the event that just claimed my father's life (including almost not making it thru the surgery itself). So I know pretty well (from the outside) what you have just gone thru....and know you'ver had a tough go if it, for sure.
Take it slow and her's to a successful recovery.
Thank You John, your words mean a lot to me...As I've said in the abstract, I'm sorry to hear about your father. I can attest, to the fact that these things can come out of the blue to knock you for a loop. I don't really know what else to say to you other than to say also take care of yourself and to give yourself time to successfully recover..
