Hi fellow woodworkers and friends,

I am happy to announce that I had my surgery on Wednesday and have been home since late yesterday.
Surgery went well and discovered that it was just in time ! My liver is damaged from the obeisety.
They tell me it will heal on it's own and should go back to normal after a while. Weighed myself yesterday and down to 315lbs. My goal is to be 210lbs apx. The pain is not bad at all. I took the pain meds at 5AM and they say every 6hrs and I still don"t feel I need them and it's 2PM. Got a bad case of bursitis in my left elbow and it seems to be going away. Staples to be removed next Friday and then I'll be ready to make sawdust again ! Thanks to all for your best wishes and support throughout this process.

Dan

Don't feel bad Rick, neither did I, so I was shocked when the surgeon told me the next day. She said it was a good thing I don't consume much alcohol.

No cardio issues with me. You are right about the white flour and sugar. I don't have to quit beer for I really don't drink much of it at all. I must however stay away from all alcohol for at least a few months to heal properly. I used to live to eat, now I will eat to live.

1. In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth and populated the Earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, green and yellow and red vegetables of all kinds, so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

2. Then using God's great gifts, Satan created Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream and Krispy CremeDonuts. And Satan said, "You want chocolate with that?" And Man said, "Yes!" and Woman said, "and as long as you're at it, add some sprinkles." And they gained 10 pounds. And Satan smiled.

3. And God created the healthful yogurt that Woman might keep the figure that Man found so fair. And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat, and sugar from the cane and combined them. And Woman went from size 6 to size 14.

4. So God said, "Try my fresh green salad." And Satan presented Thousand-Island Dressing, buttery croutons and garlic toast on the side . And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast.

5. God then said, "I have sent you heart healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them." And Satan brought forth deep fried fish and chicken-fried steak so big it needed its own platter. And Man gained more weight and his cholesterol went through the roof. God then created a light, fluffy white cake, named it "Angel Food Cake" and said, "It is good." Satan then created chocolate cake and named it "Devil's Food."

6. God then brought forth running shoes so that His children might lose those extra pounds. And Satan gave cable TV with a remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels. And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering blue light and gained pounds.

7. Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with nutrition. And Satan peeled off the healthful skin and sliced the starchy centre into chips and deep-fried them . And Man gained pounds .

8. God then gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite. And Satan created McDonald's and its 99-cent double cheeseburger. Then said, "You want fries with that?" And Man replied, "Yes! And super-size them!" And Satan said, "It is good." And Man went into cardiac arrest.

9. God sighed and created quadruple bypass surgery.

10. Then Satan created Cuts to the Health Care System. Amen!

Kind of hits the nail on the head....and a position that more of us find ourselves in more often than not. Look at our processed foods. I was looking at canned peas the other day, sugar, what the heck for? It adds no value or nutrition to my knowledge. There's a rant brewing deep down inside, I can feel it swelling. Maybe that's my belly.....or worse
