Received another zero on the 9th of April which is good.
Severe chest, stomach and back pain sent me to the ER in Austin, TX on the 23rd. I was in Austin to see my grand son inducted into the National Honor Society but missed it. After a chemical stress test to rule out Heart trouble I spent 12 days in Austin hospital having a gangrenous gall bladder removed and a ERCP 2 days later to open the bile duct. This affected both my Kidney and Liver functions. I only have one kidney so that was a big concern that kept me in the hospital. Kidney and Liver functions are back at baseline levels but have no energy or strength.
I am in Austin as my daughter had her second spine operation this week and Debbie is in Houston for the birth of grand baby 13, a Boy born April 14th. 20 inches and 7 lbs 5 ounces.
Life is good and continues to go forward. Much to be thankful for. We will overcome.
Thinking and praying for you all
