Well, we heard from him just today on the other forum, and he is feeling very weak and like a pin cushion. They are still running all sorts of tests, and I guess we were previously misinformed because he said the surgery is Friday meaning NEXT Friday. Coming to us third-hand, we thought that meant earlier today
He sounds like he is hanging in there and he is being his same old funny self, but we know that he is terminal. We all are, really, but he is truly looking his mortality in the mouth. He's known it for a while, as have we, but just really started taking it seriously this week after his heart attack. I don't know if he is a transplant candidate or not. He promises to give us more info when he feels a little stronger, but he has always been a very private person.
In the meantime, he's resting in the hospital, being taken care of and able to check in once in a great while. If I know him, he's playing Majongg on a laptop when he's awake and not too groggy from the meds.
He knows that people are praying for him and sends his deep thanks - he's a bit embarrassed by it but I know that it means alot to him. He doesn't want to be any trouble, LOL. But we all want him well.
Thanks for checking in - you people are wonderful and I love you for caring about a random stranger just because I do.
