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

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!

I am looking for a Safari Express. Was yours made in New Haven or South Carolina? Any other details you can give me? I am very motivated to buy.
