    Thank you one and all for the good wishes, prayers and kind words. This is something that has been coming on for some time but I didn't realize the severity of it until I was hospitalized before the operation quite unexpectedly.

    I still have some residual numbness in the right hand and fingers but slowly that is going away. No pain in the chest which surprises me. I really expected a lot considering the cuts, scars and scrapes life has given me along the way. I breath like I honestly don't remember when and have grown to love my pillow like a kid with his teddy bear. Those of you that have had this or similar know exactly what I mean.

    If I can keep the thieves at bay I intend to serve the modeling community along with my friends Roman and Marek for a very long time.
    God Bless you one and all,
    A very happy DeWayne

    Wishing you a speedy recovery.

    My father has a valve replacement op several years ago and I remember him vividly cradling his pillow when he needed to cough. Did'nt help that one of the male nurses in the ward was a real comic and kept making everyone laugh!

    Any way, please get well soon and all the best.

    Thank you all. In the photo I sent I was still overheated from the pain medication. This was shot at just a little after 10 AM the day after the surgery. I was able to keep the beard as long as I gave up the cheek fuzz for tape :) Still have to keep it wound up for a couple more weeks but at least I still have it.
    On the Macchi file, there was a correction that needed to be made and I didn't know any other way to do it without breaking up the file. I hope to reduce it at some point this year.
    Oh... I am getting my surgeon involved in card models. He has an 11 year old son that thinks these are the neatest thing. He's currently working on the Berlin 9. Roman, you should be proud. My doctor also likes the odd aircraft.
    Happy to be back,
    DeWayne

    Glad to hear you are back and kicking. My father's bypass gave him an additional 30 years. If the hospital comes up missing a few scalpels, we all know where to look....keep on keeping on, fella.
