    Not much to tell (yeah right), I restarted my life about 9 years ago, after spending almost 5 months in the hospital with a fungus that started in my lung that spread to the INSIDE of my brain. The largest of the masses inside my brain was the size of a golf ball, and 10 more of gradually smaller sizes. The Doctors didn't think I would make it, BUT I have a GREAT wife who stood (and slept) by my side. And With GOD in control ALL things were/are possible!
    I play mainly the "games" because they are easy to type. When I type it's ALWAYS like playing Boggle, the way I see the keys, they are always moving around the keypad, dyslexic now I guess (among OTHER problems of the mind). BUT AT LEAST I CAN TYPE AGAIN, even if it's only with one finger. Only on a VERY good day can I do much more.

    PS for a much more detailed account of my (first AND my latest) illness, it can be found in the arena of CHIT CHAT, under the heading of INJURIES, ACCIDENTS AND ILLNESS at Post # 52 and Post # 57 !

    PPS, I go into it A LITTLE more detail about me (like I haven't said enough) in "The Getting To Know You" thread, Post # 70.

    PPSS, even more personal stuff in "Have You Ever?" post # 1097

    PPPSS If you want to see a SHORT story I did, then check out "Have You Got Any Pets" post # 29.

    PPPSSS I've been asked in a couple of PM's about my new (to this site) picture, so I figured I'd answer the questions here once and for all.
    1) Yes, that is a real live Burro.
    2) No, my wife does NOT consider this cheating !
    3) No it was not trained to do that. I was actually warned against doing it at all (I've never been a great listener).
    4)No, it was not in ANY way Photo shopped. It happened as you see it.
    5) yes, there was a trick to it. If you look in my left hand, you will see a small bag. In that bag is Burro Treats. I put a LONG treat in my mouth. And even if it looks like my eyes were closed, let me assure you my left eye was WIDE open.
    6) No, no Burros were hurt while taking this picture.
    Any further questions, feel free to ask away !

    As many of you know, I've been on vacation visiting a couple of hospitals (including tours in ICU's) for 2+/- months.
    I wasn't in any condition to go into great details, but let me assure you, I am now closer to healthy then to dead (which for a while was a very real possibly).
    I CAN say that my condition involved a simple (simple..ME?), gall stone removal, a MASSIVE infection, medically induced coma, and other ugly stuff.
    Which, I've said, can be now be found in The CHIT-CHAT Arena under the thread INJURIES ACCIDENTS AND ILLNESS Post # 57.

    My "newest" health issue, as of May Forth (May The Forth Be With You) is a hernia at the operation site of my gallbladder site.
    I have an appointment with the surgeon tomorrow.
    As most of you know, Any surgery is (for me) inherently very risky
    with unknown side effects each time.
    I'll keep you posted as I learn anything.

    I've been in & out of surgery again for said hernia and again had some side effects and posted them in a brief note on INJURIES, ACCIDENTS, AND ILLNESSES Post # 75


    Thanks to all of you for your thoughts, prayers, PM's, etc.

  1. Thoughts And Prayers

    MONICA, We are believers and our PRAYERS are with you, your people, and ALL people suffering from the current fires. We know what you are going through. About 10 +/- years ago, when we still lived in the mountains, there was a terrible fire and MANY people lost there homes. Several of them were close friends. If you need someone to talk to, I'm here every morning and both my wife and and I are here in the evening (I'm almost always home but I don't check my mail like I should) feel free to PM me/us. Your Friend, Mike
