Hi all, I have been busy for the last few days, but i'm back now. Hope all is well?
My brother has hemochromatosis, and had a mass on his adrenal gland. The surgery was tricky, and he could have died on the operating table. He/we were lucky, and he made it through just fine! He is now at home recovering. I went up there and spent some time with him.
He has to walk so far every day. So many times, each day. And then gradually increase the distance each day/week. He is not happy to be missing work, but fully realizes he needs to recouperate before going back. After he recovers fully, he is scheduled for other things. He will be very busy for quite a while.
I was hoping that everyone here, would join together, and send him good vibes? I am positive it will help him! I walked with him several times, and I can tell he is in much pain. He is committed to his recovery, which is a good thing! I am, also! I will go up to his house as much as I can, and help him with what ever I can!
Please keep him in mind. Send him good vibes. I thank you, from the bottom of my heart!!!
I am still smoke free, and exercising as much as possible. I feel better than I have in a very long time. I am even sleeping better! Just wanted to let everyone in on whats happening in my life right now!
I want everyone to know that, I am thinking about all of you, also!!!
