Just thought I'd let everyone know that I'm going in for small bowel surgery tomorrow morning. I had a similar surgery back in 2006 for Crohn's disease, and now I have scar tissue built up in the area where my previous surgery took place. This is causing me to have intestinal blockages. So, they will have to go in and take out the scarred section, and put it all back together. I will be in the hospital an estimated 4-7 days.
So, I'd appreciate a few prayers and good vibes sent my way if you don't mind. It will be a long uphill climb to complete recovery, but I've done it before and hope to do it again!

Thanks!

My son has dealt with the same since he was twelve. Two major surgeries for precisely the same issue. He is 37 now. Fully understand exactly what you are battling, and please know you are indeed in our prayers.

Thanks! I've been dealing with it on and off for 30 years. I had the surgery in 2006, and have been mostly symptom free since then. Until just recently when I started having blockages. I hope your son continues to do well too!

Fear not our prayers and blessing are on the way.
Post surgery is a bitch. I'm into 2 weeks post operative for my shoulder and only have up to 9 months physio left. But like you we will get there mate.

Why do they make hospital food soft.
So it won't injure some one when you throw it out the window

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
