Thank you to all for your kind words and concern. I want to tell you that everything is now back to normal. Its certainly a great gift to be able to have your full good health back again. Actually I always just took my good health for granted. Then things changed on Oct 14th. I was told that my kidneys were only functioning at 13%. Not very good at all. In addition the prostrate needed a tune up.
The first hospital stay was 8 days. About two weeks later another 2 days. I had a foley put in the first day, then a few days later came the tubes put into the back and kidneys. My sister came up to my house and stayed with me for two weeks. I was sure lucky to have her. Also the Great support and concern I got from members on this site. Your encouraging words on here and the phone calls. I never expected that. I am truely greatful for what you have done.
I am now fully recovered. Of course I have a few follow up visits with the doctors later on.
Now it looks like I'll be back in the streets cheering "The Bravest on".
