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,
Eric

    I'm glad to hear your peaceful mood before having such a major surgery. God bless and keep you and may you continue being calm about it all. I believe you will come out of this alright. Take care and I'm praying right now for your surgery in the morning.

    Blessings,

    My Sweet
    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????
    Love,

    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.
