How Has Everyone Been?

How is everyone been doing? I have been away from here for quite a while. I hope everyone is hanging tough. I am doing pretty well since I had surgery. Feels good to feel better. I did go up to Houston to Methodist Hospital. I had lung reduction surgery. It's no joke! Yet, here I am and I give all the glory to God and the best doctors in the world.
