    Thank you all, I'm here/ Warning, pictures added to first post

    Typing with modified success right now. But feeling a little better each day (except for today). Today I pulled off the bandages from last Wed's surgery. Had three pumps, one below the left knee, one above the left knee and one on my right bicep. What an ordeal, drove through that dang gone blizzard to get back to the hospital. Let me tell you, NASCAR pit crews have nothing on those pre op nurses at Indy Methodist Hospital!!!! As soon as I was coherent, I felt my hand feeling better, I can actually feel my own pulse with my hand laying on a pillow!!!
    Due to stitches at my right wrist, it is hard to type efficiently. Plus I wear out easier for some reason! If no one objects, I have some pictures, won't post more than a couple to fully explain what has happened to me the past few days.
    Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers. They were used and appreciated. Thanks for the phone calls. Family, this site is truly all about that.

    Well this is my left leg that donated 21" of vein. 3 different incisions, don't know why, but will ask at the next doctor visit.

    Here folks is the culprit, my right arm. You can't see Oct'wscar in the elbow, but you can see it in the armpit. This surgery they connected the vein from my leg from the bicep down to the wrist. Funny I had a scar right there from running my hand through a window when I was around 4 years old. Notice no complete cut from wrist to bicep, they somehow made a hole connecting the two points and slid the vein in and stitched it together.

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake.

    I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place.

    Welcome back Jon
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.
