Thank you one and all for the good wishes, prayers and kind words. This is something that has been coming on for some time but I didn't realize the severity of it until I was hospitalized before the operation quite unexpectedly. I still have some residual numbness in the right hand and fingers but slowly that is going away. No pain in the chest which surprises me. I really expected a lot considering the cuts, scars and scrapes life has given me along the way. I breath like I honestly don't remember when and have grown to love my pillow like a kid with his teddy bear. Those of you that have had this or similar know exactly what I mean. If I can keep the thieves at bay I intend to serve the modeling community along with my friends Roman and Marek for a very long time. God Bless you one and all, A very happy DeWayne PS: Site is open now but will remove scrolling message in a couple days.
