Good evening or whatever time it is in your area.

Brought to hospital last Wednesday amid annoying pain. Tests run left and right with different ideas to what it was.

Second cat scan a few hours ago and doctors delivered a diagnosis a plan of action and general prognosis.

Blood clot along renal artery or whatever they called it. Another in the intestines.

Options according to what blood tests reveal are vascular entry through the leg, surgery, I.v.drip with blood thinners. More known as they continue testing and diagnosis.

It's a life experience- although a little scary, however, with the choices for treatment it has a positive attitude about it which I am trying to absorb.

Hey, life happens and I'm just glad that I've been allowed and given so much and so many wonderful moments. I am oddly content and borderline calm.

Hopefully there will be updates and soon. For now, I'm signing off from the computer, expect and hope to be back soon. All of you have been important parts of my last decade and I thank you all.


Stay well, stay happy.

@Sturgis,
I am relatively new here and maybe we haven't cross ideas yet. But I want to wish you luck. Stay always positive. Be brave.

Jumping on to the unknown is always difficult. Keep your loved ones close and your faith always high.

I hope we can have you around soon.

There are more than a few folks here who have survived emergency treatment for blood clots and have lots of experience with the various blood thinners, their quirks and side effects.

We've got your back, Sturgis. Don't be bashful with questions. This will probably just be yet another speed bump on the road of life requiring a brief slow down before you are on your way again.

@Sturgis,
Positive vibes being sent from over the pond, Sturge. Your humour makes me snort my coffee on occasions, and I'm sure you'll be sitting up in bed in no time, making those nurses giggle.

You get back here asap, otherwise there'll be trouble.

I'm sorry to hear this but happy that an action plan is in place and hoping that you have a quick recovery and come back to spend more time with us.

I know I'm not the only one who has the "Yay! It's Sturgis!" feeling when I see your name pop up on a thread.

Take care of yourself and know we'll be waiting for you right here.

@Region Philbis,
Yes, stay strong.
We all know Sturgis has been strong a long time, and I hear in his words that he is now too.

I'm not your huggiest person in the first place, and a real life hug now would be dumb to the max, but, man, I'm sending some google image bears to represent us..

Dear Sturgis, I hope that by now all the tests are completed, and that your best treatment options were selected and are already under way.

We are all pulling for you to surmount this latest problem ASAP. All the good vibes coming your way should be bouncing off the walls of your hospital room and surrounding you by now.

I hope you'll be able to re-connect with us soon and share news of your progress. Stay positive.
