This is a discussion on HavannaJohn within the Thoughts and Prayers forums, part of the Everything But Cigars category; Our friend Havanna John is dealing with a family health crisis.
He had to take his sister to the hospital.
To all my friends on the Forum, I wish to say a heartfelt thanks for the outpouring of prayers, and goodwill. As it turns out, my sister (who is 70), had a gallstone attack. The stones are so large, that they require surgery to remove, as they cannot be broken up by sound waves. She is scheduled for the operation, hopefully all will come out well, and this will be a thing of the past. I am having a tough time writing this because I am choked up after seeing all the fine people who expressed their thoughts here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, one and all...-John
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "...holy sh*t what a ride!"
