AOK on the aneurysm

Hi, Moh

I'm OK. They stitched a dacron hose in me, inside the bad aorta. Sick as hell, just after surgery, then doped to the gills for a few weeks. I should be drug-free in a few days. I was in for an ultrasound of my liver. The liver was fine, but they discovered the aneurysm and sent me right down to emergency. Otherwise, I hadn't had a clue anything was wrong. The puppy was 9.6 cm, about three times normal size, and ready to pop any time. I was ready to see my Maker, or to stay here; so no qualms about the operation. I'd say He wants me here, for some odd reason.

Anyhow, it's good to see you again! Greet Oz for me :-)

So, how are you?

Hey -- that reminds me. I've lost all 40 pounds that I was overweight, and the swelling that's been in my ankles for 20 years went away as soon as I got home. I'll bet I've had this monster in me for a long time. He's a good God. Some folks may not think He exists; but that's their problem:

Hebrews 11:
[6] But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

So, how are you then? Any aneurysms and excitement, or just dull, boring wonderful?
