So where have I been? What have I been doing? Nothing very fun. I was having back problems last anyone heard from me. Well it got worse. I developed blockages in my legs and damn near had to have them amputated. I've had a lot of vascular work done including what is called a left to right femoro femoral bypass. They took a teflon tube and attached it to the left femoral artery ran it under my skin and attached it to the right femoral artery. This allows blood from my left leg to enter the right leg as the artery to the right leg is 100% blocked. I experienced muscle and nerve damage in the legs due to the lack of blood flow but they were able to save the legs. I still have pain when I walk and must use at least one cane and sometimes 2 but at least I still have my legs and I'm still in there swinging away. If anyone still remembers me drop me a line. Again I beg forgiveness.
