    Not A Happy Bunny Today..!!

    I had an appointment this morning at the local hospital to see the vascular surgeon. Looks like I'm heading for femoral bypass surgery soon-ish. My right leg's blood supply is "quite compromised" as he put it, and the left one "can be sorted out with a sort of surgical 'drain rod'..". He's quite droll..!!

    Oh well, stuff happens eh. Good job I don't mind hospital food, although not being able to shoot is going to be tough to put up with..

    I'm praying for you, Tom. The blessing is, of course, that we live in a day and age where this type of surgery is available and successful.

    If you can't go to the range at least you can come here and complain about not being able to go to the range.
    Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
    Hope everything works out well for you.

    I'm just wondering how the offer of a loan of my .308 cleaning rod would go down with the surgeon..!! Or, maybe, a .22LR bore snake.. that would certainly shift any obstructions.. LOL

    Not a pleasant thing to face, but remember the prayers and best wishes of your friends are with you. Some of us have received harsh news a time or two on this side of the pond. Faith, friend!

    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.

Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune

    I hope your surgeries go well for you. Maybe you can shoot sitting or lying down?
