Those who run Tulsa field trials and hunt test have probably noticed I have been absent over the last year. after years of having an inherited hart problem I have progressed into heart failure which is now considered end stage. I last ran the fall 2011 Sooner trial and was then hospitalized for a week, must have been those Qualifying judges. I have been in the hospital 3 times since then, twice in the last month. After the last one I cardiologist would not clear me to go back to work. I have been listed for a heart transplant at Integris Baptist in Oklahoma City but now have to have my large intestine removed due to some bouts of diverticulitis over the last 5 years. Unfortunately I have not been able to do any dog training so my dog is going crazy. Tie intestinal surgery will be done in Okla City in Integris as I am considered high risk due to the cardiac issues. If any OKC people would be ablte to give names of inexpensive yet decent hotels in the area it would be appreciated for my support persons during this. Thankfully my insurance from work will stay in force and has very good coverage. Thanks in advance guys.
