Final Pre-Operation Blog

Surgery is now firmly scheduled for Tuesday, March 5th.

My birthday is Saturday, March 2nd, and it's one of those odd birthdays in that I was actually born on a Saturday, sometime around 9:30 in the morning as I recall reading someplace.

In any case, it was nice of the surgeons to let me actually turn 62 before cutting me open. My Father was 62 when he died and even though my general habits of health haven't been tremendously better than his, I do believe my having played sports for about 20 years longer and carrying about 20 pounds less around my middle should have been worth something in longevity. We'll see.

Barring anything of an amazing nature, this will be the last blog post before the operation and quite possibly the last one after it for quite some time. If you want any updates, try Facebook.

I expect MY WIFE will post as needed.

Love you all. Thanks for the prayers.

Happy birthday, my friend.
Rest assured that you are completely covered in prayers before, during, and after your heart surgery. Sending hugs and love from South Georgia to you, your Wife, and your Mom.

Happy birthday! I will wait patiently for your return. You take your time to recover. I’ll keep up the prayers. Peace be with you.

All good stuff coming your way. You are loved back by all I suspect but in any case certainly by me. Enjoy your birthday, hang in there for surgery, feel better when it is complete and I will look forward to your next post. Donna read what i wrote for Jim because it is duplicated for you as well. Thinking of you guys! Pete

Happy Birthday, Jim! You gotta get at least two more years, so you can find out if YOUR WIFE will still need you or feed you when you're 64. . .

Praying for you.

Latest update:

(Info from Mrs. Suldog who is keeping us updated until Sully is up and writing again....)

...”The surgery went well, always the overachiever, it was a quadruple instead of a double. (Guess Mt. Auburn was having BOGO ! ) He is still in a lot of pain and waiting for the magic elixir. He so appreciates all your thoughts and prayers.”.....

Just wanted to keep our blogging friends abreast of the latest.
Thank you to Mrs. Suldog for keeping us informed.
Continued prayers for Jim and his family.
Hugs and love,

Hi my friend!
It’s been a week and a day since your surgery, and I continue to pray that each day is better than the day before. Continue to do what the doctors tell you, and know that prayers are being lifted every single day for you and for your DEAR WIFE and your sweet Mom.
Sending another hug from South Georgia.
