Welcome to my CaringBridge site. I've created it to keep friends and family updated. I appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most.

Through the encouragement of my wife Carol and good friend Gina, I've decided to write this blog. This is an overview of what has changed my life forever. On December, 14th 2015, Me and my family would hear the term "Abdominal-Aortic-Dissection" for the first time. 

I've added some links below. Although the first link is from the still "BLOODY" hurt.

- http://http//
(http://http// ( (http://http// (http://http//
- Congestive Heart Failure
- Kidney Failure
- Pneumonia
- Erectile wait. I had that already.
I will be adding journal entries of my journey back to good health. So please follow along...

My journey will be mostly anecdotal with some serious moments. Don't look for angels coming down from heaven, or puppy dogs and rainbows in this blog....if I launch an "F-Bomb" or other expletive...I apologize in advance.

Let me get the sponsors out of the way.

BARD Catheters and Foley Bags..... "If you're not using BARD then Urine Trouble". 
Depends Undergarments....."Need to change your pants?....It Depends"
And Drive Mobility Products....Don't have a leg to stand on? Try Drive Canes and Walkers.

Thank you and enjoy the ride.
