Back In Milwaukee

Sitting here at Froedtert Hospital waiting for Berry Laker son # 1 to get done with his Peripheral artery bypass -leg surgery. He's been in for seven hours and still no word yet.

The poor boy is getting surgery that only old farts over 60 get done. He's hoping no GB Packer, M Brewer or M Buck's player doesn't come to visit him unless he knows who it is. When he and his brother were small, they had surgery at Children's next door and a Milwaukee Buck player came in and they were too small to know who he was? We still joke about that with him.

Pretty proud of him for how tough he is about getting this kind of surgery done. He's looking forward to graduating from UWM and working in the aerospace industry in engineering.

He even might get a visit from Father John.

We just hope and pray everything will go good for my boy. He's in Gods and his doctors and nurses hands right now. 

Hang in there son # 1, we're all pulling for you. 

The old mans proud of you.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.

Son # 1 spent all night in ICU and hopefully will go to a room this morning.

Our Father John from our old parish up north seen him for a little time last night and will stop and see him today.

Thank you all again.

Anony: we met at the Men of Christ this spring, I think.

Thought YOU were Dave Keehn from the parking service, IIRC.
