Well, Tuesday Dad goes in for total knee replacement after 2 failed attempts to save his knee after an accident on his part time job.. He is 70 and retired but won't stop going!! Keep him in your Prayers/Thoughts... He is a tough cookie but anytime you go under sedation it is scary especially at his age... I'll be in Franklin Co and back and forth to the hospital in Cary this week...
Ya'll "catch em up" for us!!!!!!!!! tight lines and good tugs!!!

PS, for those of you who know Mom's ordeal she is mending well and looking forward to the Spring fishing!!!!

Bless you all!!!

Sundrop,

I am glad to hear that your dad is doing well and sounds like he will be on the move real soon!

I am sorry to hear about your wife's back. I understand completely as you know the situation with my wife's back.

Please don't hesitate to call if you need anything even if it is moral support. A lot of people don't realize that sometimes it can be tough on the care giver also.

Mark
