HMMM  , hope that wasn't meant to cheer anybody up :huh: The older we get , the more our own mortality is thought about , but at a time like this , that type of talk doesn't help IMHO !

I predict that he will 1) have the nurses logging on and posting to the forum for him soon, 2) he's probably scoping out his "next ex," 3) post-op, he will really be scoping out the "next ex" and 4) be home shortly doing the happy dance or playing his drums!

Stay strong as you always are John. You will be in all of our thoughts. There are a lot of good vibes coming your way!  :huh:

See I took this more as Terry, is saddened by this and it's hard for him to even talk about it.  Just shows depending whos reading it or what mood a person is in, how they will interpret something....now's whos right? Heck I don't know!

I would go with how Jenny interpretted this, is how Terry is feeling. Terry, I heard that quote once before too. Now that guy is going to be running circles around us!!!

I agree Terry is hurt by this & expressing that in a manner mayby not meant to negative .. But the part I think NOT needed is "He was not sure if he him self would see another Xmas , as of last summer " ... I put myself in others position when I think about what is happening & what is being said . I would not like to be sitting in the hospital waiting for an operation Monday reading about me not thinking I would make it this far . I know there is much more negative things that could be said , BUT i think any negatives should not be put out there now ...It's almost like Terry didn't know John would read the post Or it was already post humous . John is a VERY smart fella & I'm sure he knows what he said & anybody who reads this forum knows John has been in a slump about his physical condition . I would like for John to hear positive reassuring things instead of something that could lead tonegative thoughts & results . my 3 cents

I understand what you are saying Rodger!  I suppose it just shows how much you care and respect John!!

I'm sure Terry did  not mean anything negative in his post, some people have a hard time writing their feelings down (not saying Terry does)

I believe John knows there are many of us supporting and praying for him right now...and all waitting with POSITIVE feelings when we get the report that all went smoothly!!

Me included!!

   I don't want to be right or wrong , I want Terry & everybody to understand posting anything possibly negative at this time , isn't good for anybody , ESPECIALLY John . At the very least that sort of talk , is depressing to anybody who cares about John  .

Positive vibes as H said !!!

Renee,

    John is doing as well as can be expected....and resting.  I spoke with him earlier....his doctors are optimistic about the surgery and about when he will be released from the hospital...so that is great news!

  There probably won't be much new till later Monday, after surgery!

Keep checking back.

thanx  Jenny for the update, its so good that we have you to keep us updated, I hate when people disappear from a board and no one knows what the heck is going on!!! From what I can gather by reading posts that he has done, he is tough and will make it thru this with flying colors! Not to mention all the love, respect and friendship he has from people here! He simply has no choice to get better and get back here!!

John is on the phone with me now and asked that I type this for him, as with all the IVs in his arms it's hard for him to post:

I really appreciate everything that everyone is doing for me and the best wishes, I wish I could thank everyone individually, but I just can't right now, but I will thank every single one of you when I'm feeling better and get out of here!

No work at all for atleast 2 months, I can't even drive a car for the first month.  So the donations you have made with certainly keep me alive and eatting until I can get back to work, you have no idea how much I appreciate it, and what a great bunch of people you are, even though I knew it, it just shows it to everybody!

"God bless you all"

John

awwww......making me cry here :'(

Concentrate on getting well John, Selfishly I'm thinking it will mean more time you can spend on here! Thankfully with the advances medicine has accomplished this last decade, while a triple bypass is serious shit, its a very common procedure anymore and the stronger you are the better and faster your mending!

From what I have heard, you have a great big HEART so they may need two surgeons huh? LOL!!

Take care and God Bless U!!!

Terry , I agree with you . As you said  " came out wrong ......and I should not have even mentioned it ." I wished you had left it at that !!! I thought I was polite & not rude when I responded to something that would have been hurtfull to me if I was sitting where John is now . I had respect for you until you did the " take a pill DUDE !!!!! newbie ;P " . While I think it is funny because it is childish , I refuse to go any further in this thread about your post , because of the situation with John . It's not up to me to teach you manners & etiquette . At your age if you don't know saying something like that in a public forum where John would read BEFORE going under the knife is wrong , I don't think you ever will . IF you made the last reply in humor I apologize for taking it seriously ( I do take offense at the newbie comment , the other stuff can be done kidding , but seems being called a newbie is an universal internet insult )

my friend John , I'm sorry if this upsets you at all . Hang in there & get well .You are irreplaceable !!!

          :huh: Class of 55 !

    edit:  ;D  Class of 54 & 55
