I just received an e - mail from Slow John's wife, he's been taken to the hospital.
It seems he has blockages in in arteries in his legs.

Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Paul

Hi Paul
Thanks for letting us know
John, you have my best wishes and prayers for a swift and full recovery
God of Creation, God of All People,
please hear my prayer for a friend
who is facing health issues.

Divine Physician, send down strong ministering angels to restore my friend
to the best of health.

Sickness can be a blessing which makes us
stop and appreciate our life and reassess
and realign our goals and priorities.

It also makes us more sensitive to others
who have afflictions and challenges
of various kinds.

We can offer up our suffering to You
as a prayer of obedient acceptance
of Your Divine Will.

But You know, Lord, we all want to have
the goal of "mens sana in corpore sano":
a sound mind in a sound body.

Please breath restorative graces
on my friend, and the gift of a swift recovery and a full return to robust health.
All this I pray in confidence and in love
to You, Jesus, Who made the lame to walk
and the blind to see, and the sinful cleansed, and pure again, as new-fallen snow.

Amen
You and yours are in my heart my thoughts and in my prayers
Take care dear friends
Yours Hank

"When wild the head-wind beat,Thy sovereign Will commanding, Bring them who dare to fly, To a safe landing."

Default I'm home for now but...

....first I'd like to say Thanks for everyones Prayers & Well Wishes.
6 days ago I went for a scheduled appt. with my cardiologist. The next morning I went back for a 30 minute dye/X-ray procedure to look for some blockage(s) in my legs & heart. I came to in a ambulance that was taking me to Houston's Methodist Hospital DeBakey's Heart & Vascular Institute (about a 2 hr. or so drive), the same place that saved my life several times back in '03 & ' 04. I've been in the ICU for 3.5 days & a day in another room & was finally released late yesterday afternoon. There was a bad wreck on our way home that turned the Freeway into a parking lot so it was after 10 PM before we got home.
I've got lots more to go thru and the holidays will see me resting more than anything else . Guess that's lot's better than some other alternatives right
Anyway I had another artery replacement done in my right leg this time from my groin to my knee



Standing By,
SJ

wooohooo! i was getting worried what with not hearing from you john. now i can say our prayers were answered and we'll keep them up to the one who gives strength to the weakened and in need.[we all need prayers]

now when your feeling up to it ,you should do a slow build thread with one of those kits ya got on the shelf...i'd subscribe. but do take it slow my friend. get well and enjoy the holidays with family.

John glad to read that you made it back home!
Now give yourself some time to get better before you take off and go flying.

Do keep us updated on your progress sounds like you went through a lot again. Never a dull moment in your life that's for sure.
