About to have another boo boo.

I am laying here in a hospital bed after pre op tests this evening waiting for brain surgery in less than 12 hours. Please pray that everything goes smoothly and there are no complications. Another fun filled adventure! I may ask to do this again. I will have my fellow colonites on my heart and mind. We just take our lickings and hopefully keep on ticking. If I am together enough afterward I'll update. God bless all of you and of course my angel on earth is sleeping beside me on the chair in my room. I love you and wish you the best. Here is to hoping that I wake up feeling like a new man and that each of you wake up tomorrow refreshed, renewed and peaceful. If you think of me in the morning do it with a little prayer and a nice relaxing cup of coffee in the morning or whatever your version of coffee in the morning is. Blessings to each and every one of us. I send my good thoughts and speak gods blessings to all of you who are wounded and hurting. Sometimes it is hard to keep the faith but we can only do it one day at a time. You have to put a puzzle together one piece at a time before you start to see the real picture. Sometimes you have to be the ant that doesn't know he isn't supposed to be able to carry a rubber tree plant ,but the next thing you know, there goes another rubber tree plant. Time to go now before I start busting out with a bunch of cliches.
Love you guys,

You are telling me that you don't know, that each and everyone of us are with you? I've already accused Buzz of farting in a couple of rooms, yours included.
You know my dear bald one, we are there with you, in mind and spirit, there is no getting away from us, you're stuck!!!
Know this, all will be well, too many of us ready to kick anyone's arse that doesn't do you right. Your surgeon will be good, the nurses will be kind, they know us, your following too well already for it not to be.
To the spirits that I know and worship, they give you all they can, my mother earth, my father, my Gods, they surround you my friend, they give you hope, and life. Have faith, all will be well, it cannot be any other way.
I'm the only one with a worry, which is, How badly is Buzz going to kick my arse for accusing him of farting????

I am sitting here with my coffee as you suggested and meditating on what a wonderful, brave young man you are. I am asking for peaceful healing for you and for all of us.

I don't know what else to say so I'll just continue drinking my coffee and keep thinking good thoughts and my heart is praying for you Eric.

You are in my thoughts and prayers and praying that all goes well tomorrow. Glad your mom is there with you. She is your angel. Don't you worry about us on the board, you just get strong enough to post that all went well and then come back to the board when you are able. Have a speedy recovery.

Hey Eric,

It's the next day and I'm going to assume that the surgery is now over and that you are resting/sleeping off the effects of the anesthesia. I'm hoping when you wake up that you do not have any major headache or anything like that and that you will be feeling better and better with each passing day.

There's no expectation for you to post in the next day or two unless you are feeling totally up to it. But something tells me with this kind of surgery, they may have you fairly drugged for a few days (what do I know... maybe not... maybe you will be up racing the hallways within 24 hours of surgery). Either way, when you do come back to read the messages everyone has left for you, you will see that we were all here with coffee in hand, no matter what the time of the day, sending good, healing thoughts your way!

Your son.......well what can you not say about him...funny, sarcastic, witty, point blank,and a simple pleasure to talk with. I am certain that he is the apple in your eye. Someday I hope to meet the woman that has raised the bright young shining star that he is, and what he brings out in everyone else is amazing. His wit, humor, and remarkable savvy to circumvent his feelings to aid in his journey instead of hinder is remarkable. Only to be passed on through his mother that after raising such a remarkable young man most likely knows her way around just by having to raise him as you did.....You my dear deserve a Purple Heart...and your son, a heroes medal for the son he has become......for the remarkable young man he signifies every time he speaks.....Love to you both, Clift (Buzz)
