I am going to cover all my bases and give you my well wishes for a speedy and the least painful/invasive treatment as possible, here as well as FB.

I am also going to take some time to "see" you healthy.

Well these circumstances are sure to get a rise out of Toerag! Michael I have a friend here who just went through all of this. Can't say it's a lot of fun but at least you'll be well when it's over. Hang in there and I pray God guides your doctors.

Mike,
Adding my prayers and hugs for healing on to the rest posted here. I'll pray that the antibiotics do the job they are supposed to and that the surgery is minor or ( with any amount of miracles ) not needed at all.
All my prayers and hugs

My prayer has already been sent.  May the antibiodics do their thing, so surgery is not so invasive.  Just keep thinking in rhyme and your wit and humor will heal you quickly.

God bless,

Knuffels from me Michael, you know you're always in my thoughts and heart and tell them antibiotics to do their job.

Ballad for a Dear

Michael Mack ainít no ordinary Jack,
Heís a pillar amongst all men.
~ Known for his wit and his naughty charm,
And his story-telling pen.

Thereís a boyish twinkle in his eyes.
His broad smile lights up a room.
And his poetry is loved by all.
~ His quill has quite the plume!

As of late ~ heís been bummed out.
~ Things ainít runniní as before.
Heís now laid up in the hospital,
~ With indignities galore!

But never fear, our Balladeer,
Will soon be on the mend.
Ya cainít keep a good buck down,
~ God bless his bottom end!

~*~

Michael, know that my love and prayers are with you and that I am sending a s--tload of antibiotics your way via Angel Air Express!



Nurse Linda

Dear 'deer,

I am thinking of you and promise to work on my homework in the workshop.  I am waiting until you come back (is that a good excuse?)- there's no substitute, you know.

My thoughts are with you.

Dear Mike,

          Got back online this morning after a week out of town and find that you're scheduling surgery.  Really, Mike, a simple concession note would have done just as well, but you have such a flare for the dramatic, I guess you had to go for the bold statement.

     I can't help the bad joke.  When a friend gets ill I get upset, and you are a friend, indeed.  Humor helps.  I'm glad you have the VA, the folks there are top notch, and it sounds like you're getting top notch treatment.  The anti-biotics will quiet things down internally, if I understand the message at a bit of a remove, and then they'll be able to go in and assess the situation and do stage one of the fix.  Maybe later they'll go back for stage two.

     I hope everything goes very well indeed and that the pain that's been such a bother gets resolved.  I hope that they're able to deal with the underlying issues simply and straightforwardly.  I'll keep in touch.  I am offering prayers.  You already have my affection.

Love, Bob Kaven

Steve, Toe is more of the tumor type and, as such, can grow on you

Thanks again, folks. All will work out for the best and I'll be back to bug you soon.
