Toby..Same with me. Sorry for the late check in so I hope your surgery went as well as mine have. Lost the whole colon to Crohn's back in 96. Have had two follow-on's for the scar tissue build up that causes those darn small bowel blockages. Good news is that it hasn't kept me from any hunting and fishing opportunities and the ostomy makes my friends jealous when the snow is deep and they have to shuck some clothes to take care of natures call! An old man soldier at Walter Reed told my "Son, if you don't have a sense of humor, you better buy, borrow, or steal one cause you will need it." Best wishes for a speedy recovery!!

Update

Everything went as planned. A little more extensive than we had planned. It seems that the scar tissue had attached itself to my liver. Good news is, he was able to get everything cut loose and got the narrow section of bowel taken out and sewn back together. And even better news, there's no sign of Crohn's disease anymore. This was all caused by scar tissue from my previous surgery. Only a few more days in the hospital if all goes well and no infection sets in.

Thanks for all the prayers!

Toby, sorry I had missed this as well. I'm glad to hear that the surgery went well, and even better news that there was no sign of Crohn's! I guess now the jokes can start?
You had to have surgery to stop you from being full of $h¡t? :E Laugh:
Maybe you should stay away from GB while on the meds, but it would be awesome if you took this opportunity to write some more songs! I've been listening to your stuff a lot and I'm BEYOND impressed!!
Wishing you all the best in your recovery. Keep well!

I somehow missed this and will admit that I didn't have a good feeling when I saw five pages on this thread. This is one of those that just got better with every post. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

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!
