I never wrote about our news from last week. You all know about Earl's health problems and in Sept. he went in for a procedure to have a balloon inserted into his carotid artery to open that artery again. Well, when he went to the Dr. last week for his Doppler test (which checks the arteries to see if they are open) they told him that the artery was closing again and his chances of living thru surgery was only 5% if they tried to go into that artery again. They don't want to even try and do anything unless he starts blacking out and/or losing complete control of his arm. We all know how stuborn and bull-headed he can be, lol. I think he is realizing that he can try and do something about it by changing his lifestyle. Let's hope it works. I love him so much and don't know what I would do without him.

  1. I hope he gets his butt in gear and makes some changes. We don't want to loose such a good friend and "family" member. Please let us know if there is something we can do to help. Even if you need someone to talk to. Just call us! We love you both!
