:( As most of you know in October 2005 I had 5 bypass open heart surgery. I was having trouble with my low back and had a MRI done. It found I have a 5 Centimeter anuerysm on my aorta plus having 3 ruptured discs in my low back. I go to a surgeon today about the anuerysm and may have to have MAJOR surgery again....Looks like I will be down for at least 9 months.......Please include me in your prayers.......Otey

Otey,
You know I'll be keeping you in my prayers. You are such a dear person and I wish you the best. You've gone through so much these past few years, but just remember that God loves you!

I only wish you were a little closer so I could give you a big ol' hug!!!

Otey,

I had a 72 year old friend at work back in 1990 that went through a very similar situation as you. He was getting tired easily, so he went in and they found 4 blocked arteries, and an anuerysm in his aorta. He had to have open heart surgery first so he could make it through the one later for the anuerysm. He had the heart surgery, then 5 months later they did the second one. He just died recently at the ripe age of 88 years old, and the years in between were healthy and happy. If not for the heart symptoms, he surely would not have gotten a chance at those 17 years. You'll sure be in my prayers.

Otey-sorry to hear this, but you will have a lot of folks wishing you well & praying for you. As has been said-you're a dear man. One of my favorite pictures from the NY trip is of you & it always puts a smile on my face.

You hang in there Mr. Brabston & you'll be back running dogs in no time.
