Well, after a couple of days in the hospital, I'm back. They are concerned as I have a thin-walled annurism in my aorta. I have been lots of medication and strict guidlines. I have to hire someone to run the day-to-day business at my shops. It will be difficult as I love to work and am a hands-on boss.
The prayers and wishes meant so much to me as I had a friend check this forum for me. Even though none of you know what I look like or what kind of person I am, you selflessly sent wishes. This is greatly appreciated. When my wife read some, she cried and now understands my "addiction" to this forum.
I'll still be able to make basic decisions but my doctors (3 different ones) are afraid of a sudden rupture of which there is no recovery.

PS. We are still starting my 300C build next week for the show...I just won't be doing much myself. If ya'll don't mind, I still would like to put my 2 cents worth in this forum.

A very deep thank-you, Wes, Daytona Beach

Welcome back Wes. Hope your medications and doctors help with your condition, keep strong and listen to your docs. You still have more to contribute to this forum and more importantly to this world.

Nice to have you back boss. I know I don't comment to much on the visual and performance threads but I think your work is A++ and I see you put a lot of heart and love in your work (not many pros do that anymore). God Bless Wes! :D

Best wishes Wes. Doctors told my dad he probably had less than 5 years to live because of his artery problems when he was 39. He passed away a couple of years ago at age 80.

Wes, Nurse Linda checking in here....

First of all: Thank God you're home, you scared us!

Secondly: Please follow your doctor's orders, an aneurysm is nothing to take lightly. You're one of the lucky ones- you know; most don't... remember John Ritter? We are fortunate to live in an age when it is easier to be proactive about our own conditions and treatment, take advantage of all your resources.

Finally: Kiss your wife, hug your girls, drive your C and let go of your stress. We don't want you turning in your Chrysler wings for the eternal variety for a very, very long time!! ;)

Now you listen to Nurse Linda, Wes.

Hey, if you really wanna chill out, come on up to Ottawa. I've got a place for you to stay. I'll go to Daytona and help run your shop for a while....:D

Glad to know you are back Wes, keep the faith brother we'll continue to pray for you and your doctors. Any plans to have surgery to correct this thing?

1 Doc wanted me to have surgery yesterday. 2 doctors say with medication I can put off surgery for awhile as long as I am regularly checked. We went for the advise of the 2 docs since my thin-wall is on the curved part of my aorta and could rupture during surgery. I will have to have it repaired within 10 years or so. As I get older it apparently is more dangerous.
I feel ok today but tire easily. The docs say I have to change my diet and stress levels immediately. So, yeah!!! lol Not much choices for tasty food.

PS. I was pretty scared but I was watched over. As I've heard "God must not be finished with me yet".
