David Welch the Louisiana Flash
« on: September 13, 2015, 12:19:37 PM »
 OK , for those of you who don't know , our friend David Welch , Sickbay 987 here on WG , is facing some health problems . Scheduled for open heart surgery this coming  week . David is an RN , and has been on the other side of this deal more than once , but it is different when it is you going on the table . He is in good spirits , his biggest disappointment is missing the Okie camp out this year . Anyway , as David said to me , prayers of all types are welcome , Voodoo , a Buddhist chant , wave a dead chicken around , a quiet request to God for his recovery , anything will be welcomed  :laugh: My guess is the Docs will fix him right up and we will be seeing David and his lovely wife Colleen with the kids in tow at many more gatherings  :bike-037: :thumb:

David,

Everything is going to go perfect with your surgery.  The doctors will have warm, steady hands and the scar lines will be straight.  :)  Prayers will be going up from East Texas for you, Colleen and the kids, and all your doctors and nurses and other caretakers. 

Being on the other side will open your eyes to what some of your patients are going through!  My 97 year old aunt, a retired nurse, broke her shoulder a few years ago and had a very painful recovery in physical therapy, worse then when she broke her hip.  She felt guilty for all the times she pushed her patients to do things that hurt them, but were necessary to regain the use of whatever was injured.

Follow orders and you'll be back on your feet in no time!

The latest lowdown from our little coonass buddy;


I'm home. I feel beat.. worn out. But, day by day I'm on the mend... thanks for all the thought and prayers, not to mention the Virgin sacrifices. Thanks to you all. Picture coming.

Good news David!

Good to see you on the recovery road David.

As you probably know a number of us here are members of the "Zipper Club" and know what you had to go through. Early days yet. One day at a time.
