Supposed to be another nice day. 35 degrees or so with sunshine. Coffee in my VFW cup and two Oerios. See, if I eat a big breakfast I gain weight.

Gun club today and work on my shop some more. Go to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Mn tomorrow to see if my recent surgery to fix an anurism was successful. Sure hope so. Don't want to do that again.

Woke up 1am with power out! 6 inches Heavy wet snow........ Ran generator, fixed a pot of coffee (8 O'clock brand). Power was restored by 4:30 am. Usually when we are out it's for 6 to 18 hrs. Was thankful for this one. Thats the price I pay for living in the woods.

Cold day today. High in the 20a but clear sky. Haven't got coffee yet, but soon.

OK, good news at the Mayo yesterday. My Doc is a very nice young man and after the CAT Scan he spent a lot of time with us going over the results and just visiting in general. The Stint, (which is something new for the aorta), is sealed well and not leaking at all. The anuerism is gradually absorbing and will soon be gone. He told me I can now do anything I want with no physical limitations and come back and see him in a year.

Just a couple years ago this repair required major surgery. The Mayo considered the surgery so dangerous that they would not operate until the anuerism reached a dangerous size. Mine had been monitored for 19 years and had just now grown to that size. What the Mayo has developed is a stint that is the size of a lead pencil and up to 18 inches long. They insert one in each size of the groin into the femoral artery and they join together when the reach the aorta, and then one extends further up to the kidney artery's. Once in the expand to the size of a garden hose. It's a permanent fix. It's kinda like when we used to vulcanize a tire from the inside. The blood now flows through the stint itself.

All is good, thanks for the prayers. :D
