Fy anam cara is in the hospital with DVT… :((

Huw… one of my closest friends who happens to be in Australia til the end of summer 😦 is in the middle of a big health scare… Last Saturday he woke up and his legs were extremely swollen… he said, “That’s not right…”  Drove to the doctor, doctor looked at it and said, “That’s not right…” While the doc was in the process of sending Huw to the hospital, he ended up having a mini-stroke right there in the office.  Fast forward to today, the blood clots in his legs haven’t changed and he’s still unable to walk, so he is going in for surgery this weekend to remove the clots – an 11″ one in his left leg, and an 8″ one in his right leg.  He’s been on a slew of meds, including Warfarin stomach shots for a week.  He is keeping in contact with me through G-mail on his PDA and has been keeping me updated daily, although I imagine I won’t hear from him for a day or two when he has the surgery done.  He’s been in good spirits though… ending his e-mails with “…love you and will try get on again soon to say hello. i love you so much, and thanks so much for sending me emails 🙂 brightens my day to no end.  caru chi, huw.”

Cara ‘ch baban… fy anam cara… You need to get better so you can get here in one piece!!!!
