I had lost 2 pints from the knee surgery and 3 from the bleeding ulcers. My Dr said I was dying and started giving me blood transfusions, which brought me back to life.
Spent some 4 days in the hospital and then home.
Since then I have been going through Knee Therapy, and taking large amounts of pills to help me recover from the knee surgery, ulcers and slowly replace the 5 pints of blood I lost.
So for this Christmas I have a new knee, and my life back. Dr said it will be a long recovery maybe 3 months back to normal.
I feel that God has opened another door for me, as I have my life back this Christmas!.
Agonyea, it just shows how tough you are. Many folks would have bled to death from an ulcer.

Speedy recovery and Merry Christmas!

A very Merry Christmas to all!

Everyone is here- kids and grand kids, although I had to drive nearly to Roanoke to pick my son and his faily after they were involved in a 3 car pileup.

No one hurt but the car is shot, so I got an extra 7 hours with the grand daughters!

I made a donation to the "Human Fund" in everyone's honor here.

Agonyea, glad ur OK. Seizures suck. I flopped around like a Bluegill on the floor in the check out isle of Wally World about 4 years ago. 1st one.

Take your meds Ranger...quit trying to be a tough guy, which we already know you are. Best of health for 2019.

Praying that all have a safe and very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year. Remember Jesus is the reason for the season.

Merry Christmas, SOCNET !!

Agonyea - very happy to hear you are still with us - hope your Christmas is especially blessed.

And I am sending my thoughts, prayers and gratitude to all our brothers and sisters spending Christmas somewhere on the globe away from their loved ones.

Let me know if you need any local help/input with the car situation. That's my AO.
