Same request as before = please leave here for most exposure. Coiling procedure did not work and will have to do another type of brain surgery. 2 by 3 or 2 by 4 incision on right side of head. Dr. will actually go under the bottom of brain to get to thbe aneurysm in order to clip it. Wish me luck and keep me and mine in your prayers. I g0 in on 4/6/04 and will be in the hospital for 7 days and in recovery for at least another 2 to 3 months. Hopefully there were will be no complications from thisl Love John and Belinda. Thanks.

As always, I will hold you in my thoughts- that day, that week, those months. You tell Belinda how to navigate here and let us know how it goes. I don't want to wait that whole week before finding out how things have gone for you (please!)

You got it! Just realize, I could also send you CD in the mail as well. That's right: Dudy not only prays, but caters as well! I have doughs with whatever mix you'd like, with the exceptions of poisons or precious metals for pricing reasons of course.

On that note--WORD!;P

Thanks for all the support and prayers. For those interested I will be going in for a Craniomity on the right side. Dr. states they go under the brain to the spot where the aneurysm is and clip. Thing is, it seems they have to go between the optic nerves. Thanks again. Will try to get the wife to come in and post the results. Love you all. John

The aneurysm is located at the "Anterior Communicating Artery". Have gotten all my affairs in order just in case - beneficiaries for insurance, unpaid salary, death benefit, TSP(like an IRA), will, etc. Last thing I would want to do is mess up the wife - I want her taken care of if things happen. Living Will already prepared - did that when I went in for the Coiling. Thanks all for your support. John
