Thanks to everyone for your concern.

Unfortunately, I was too anemic for surgery Friday. So they admitted me to the hospital where I sucked down 3 units of blood. Made me thankful that I had "paid it forward" by donating over 2 gallons in the past. They got my blood count back above 30 (40+ is normal) from 23. The nurses couldn't believe I was walking upright at 23.

I am back in the office today. Hopefully we can do the surgery this coming Friday. I will do my best not to bleed between now and then.

Mrs. Hold was very supportive Friday and Saturday. She does care very much, even if she cannot show it the way I would prefer.

When you can see it coming, duck!
