AOCH isn't sitting up any more for now. He's going into two more surgeries, one tonight for the filter to try and stop blood clots in his leg from moving up to the lungs and worse. Then tomorrow, they'll be taking him back in to work on his left knee again. The surgeon thinks he can do better for James in the long haul. http://cheezburger.com/8217149184
AOCH UPDATE: He's been MOVED!!! After the six hour surgery on his leg yesterday, James was still in recovery last night at 10pm (his time). Got to speak with him briefly and he sounds in good spirits. He said they would be moving him to a totally different unit and there will be another surgery for his hip on Thursday after which he'll be moved yet again. So, any further cards etc., might want to hold off until he's a bit more settled. We're looking into seeing if they're going to forward anything coming in for him (I expect they will). That's about all for now. The surgery went well although his O2 levels were low. He was running the nurse to death needing bed adjustments, warm blankets and ice chips, LOL. He was having issues with the bed because it was an older model they had to dig out of storage just for him 'cause he's such a large fella. LOL....that's "our" cowhand.
Bear with me on the paypal. I'm having "issues" with the site. It's supposed to allow set up for paypal but right now it's under "WeCare." Credit cards and bank routing are accepted but I'm going to try and change it to go through paypal. Thanks.

Thanks so much MM. You're prayers and wishes are most welcome too. :) I don't know who's doing the fundraiser or if someone is going to or what. I've had a screaming migraine for two days now and am a bit "out of it." Foxy
