Greetings Loyal Airmen, well the Air Chief is back though minus a pesky organ. Just one week ago we were admitted into the Medical Center of the Rockies, one of the finest hospitals in Colorado, where surgeon Dr. Lee removed my cancerous prostate gland.
All of this was on Thursday. Valerie and our beautiful granddaughter were with me at the hospital and Cora snapped these pictures of us only a few hours after the surgery had been successfully concluded. Everything went like clockwork, we were told and that the Air Chief would most likely be on his way home the very next morning.
Sure enough, the following morning Dr. Lee met with us for an hour explaining what recovery would be like in the weeks and months ahead. He cautioned us to take things slow, ala no quick four miles walk but go back to building up our strength gradually. Our body has to get used to a whole new plumbing system and that too is going to take some hard work, but we are committed to doing all of it. With that the Doc gave us the green light to get the hell out of there and within two hours look was back home sitting behind the desk in his office ready to get rocking and rolling again.
Right now, we want to thank all you wonderful, Loyal Airmen, who kept us in your prayers during this entire matter. Those prayers sustained every single day, lifting us up to Our Loving Creator. We will be forever grateful to each and every one of you the rest of of our lives.
And since we didn’t want this Flight Log to be simply an Air Chief medical report, we wanted to leave you with this latest on the proposed Brother Bones series. After several unsuccessful attempts to sell the concept to a TV streaming service, the producers handling Bones this past week managed to get original book in the hands of a very well known and successful Hollywood writer/director who may be interested in producing a “pilot” episode. So not great news we’d hoped for by now, but the project is still active and moving in a positive direction. Rest assured we will keep all of you Loyal Airmen posted on any changes in that status. Till then, we keep all fingers crossed.
And there you have this week’s Flight Log. Thanks ever for stopping by,
Ron – Over & Out!
