For those of you who have been following my brothers conduction I would like to thank you for that. For those who have not but would like to here is the link www.caringbridge.org/visit/johnnyhudson His wife tries to keep it on the positive side, as it keeps her strong and it gives hope to all the family members. My brother has been in and out of surgery 14 times for different thing since the 21st of April this year. They are trying to fix issues that was caused when he dissected his Aorta and then they put in a new Aorta value and then they had to fix some leaks. Then again they had to go in because of a blockage and then due to kidney failure and then twice more because of stomach issues caused by all this. Then they went in because the right kidney died and then again for open heart massage because he went into Afib. They have removed the right kidney, and part of the bowel, did 6 bypasses, 5 grafts and are looking at having to removed 4 toes off the right foot due to lack of blood flow to the lower body, and now the left kidney is not functioning the way it should. So I am going to get typed matched for a transplant for him. So these issues have kept me and my family tied up right now. They have even made my issue look small as my own medical issues are small in comparison with those of my brother. The cancer I have is back and I have had a mild stroke back on the 10 of April. So as you can see my plate is a little full right now. I said all of the above to say this. I owe 4 people out here 5 rods for different functions. I am behind and I am sorry about that. If you still want the rods I will get them out but understand that I have more important issues right now. Or at lest in book they are more important and if they are not so in the eyes of others I am sorry. I have had 1 cancel on there order because I could not meet the dead line they have set and I am sorry about that. I am spending all my free time in Colombia SC at the hospital by my brothers bed side and helping his wife with things around his house. I have not even cut my grass nor finished anything I needed to do. So please forgive me if I put my family before my rods and other things, but to me they are more important at this point in time as they are taking my brother back to surgery as I type right now. Thanks so much.
