Bomat: Still alive...but not kicking as much

Recommended Posts

 

Hi guys...

 

Sorry it's been so long,but I HAVE been in both the hospital (for surgery)

and then a Care & Rehab Center from January 1 until May 26.

 

I developed a Venus Stasis ulcer in my left calf which became infectious that

was removed on January 1. Doctors told me they removed nearly a liter of fluid &

other crud during the operation. I didn't realize HOW sick I was before finally

heeding my wife's urgings to go to the hospital...but now,given what I've learned

and seen,I'm convinced that IF I hadn't finally listened to her-when I did-I would

probably have died!

 

Of course this has turned up 'a few' other problems,all being looked after

now...so I'm now just a 'sick 70 year old man!' Thank God for Medicare & Medicade,

the week in Harborview Hospital was almost $59K,and the Care Center was over $1K

a month!

 

Lots of therapy involved...almost had to 'learn to walk' again,but am on the

way back now.

 

Thanks to all in the hobby that may have wondered 'where I was!' I appreciate

your caring. I will eventually be able to contact the guys that I regularly was

in communication with...but not sure how long it'll take. My energy levels seem to

fade faster these days and still am bothered by Lymphedema in both legs,which may

or may not prove to be surmountable! Time will tell!

 

Anybody who wants to Email me (mathergolf@comcast.net)-rather than waiting for

me to contact them-please feel free to do so. That'll get you a faster response!

 

By the way,did Thorn Smith's 26" Nomura win BOTY Cruiser?

 

Thanks Guys...

 

Bob
