Hip Surgery is over.. onward and upwards

I had my hip surgery on 2/17. It went well and I was home the next day. It’s now 5 days post surgery and slowing buy surely gaining strength and movement. I have been icing my leg quite a bit and I even went on an outing yesterday to the grocery store with my wife. I was a bit tired when I got back! I decided to take 2 weeks off from work and my problem is I am on my laptop 7*24 and check my emails and can’t seem to get away from work! πŸ™‚

Switching gears, as far as my Prostate Cancer, I just had my second post RP test done last week and after my visit with Dr. James Porter as Swedish, my PSA was undetectable. That was my 6 months check up and he wants me to come back in 6 months for another test. I can ONLY PRAISE THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY for his help with this. I was a TRUE MIRACLE.

As you may know, I am a Christian. I believe that the bible is to be interpreted by the dispensations of the bible. Meaning, there are certain times in history where we are governed by certain times in the bible. In my case and in yours, this period is the Gospel according to Paul in which we are saved by Grace through faith that Jesus died and rose again on the third day and that by the shedding of his blood we are washed of our sins by Jesus paying the price. This “church” age period about to come to an end shortly. I believe with all my heart that it (rapture) of the church could happen this year, 2017. I am not a prophecy expert, but………… I have been studying and all my research as well as many others are showing that this church age is coming to an end very soon. I know many folks don’t believe in the bible or Jesus Christ and that’s too sad as I believe that the bible IS the word of GOD and that it does predict and layout the future of the world. The church must be removed to allow for the time where the Anti Christ will rule for 7 years during the tribulation. This time will be the most devastating on earth ever! Look for the signs in Heaven!

If you are not a Christian, you WILL be left behind to try and make it through this awful period. The people in Israel are looking for a sign, if you check out YouTube and search Revelation 12 or 9/23/17 dates, you will see that there is a SIGN coming in September of this year.

In summary, I can’t understand why ANYONE would not want to know about Jesus Christ? He is the ONLY way to the father and the time of judgement is just around the corner. I would HIGHLY recommend giving your life to Jesus and accepting the Gospel of Paul and believe on the LORD Jesus Christ that he died for you, rose again, shed his blood and sits at the right hand of the father and has a plan (external) for this saints. Please, say the sinners prayer and believe.

In God we trust,

My hip surgery is scheduled for 2/17/2017

Ok………… I am on the books now at Virginia Mason for 2/17/17. I am going to have Dr. Clairbaux do my surgery. He’s done a few other folks that I know with excellent results. I had to reschedule my appointment with Dr. Porter (first follow up) last week as I had a conflict. But, I did the video testimonial and I still don’t see it posted to the Swedish Urology site πŸ™‚

I am listening to a great speaker, The Genesis Files: The Meaning and Purpose of Creation | Faith & Science | John Lennox, PhD, It’s a great narrative of the history of the world and how GOD made the world.

We have our second match tonight for my USTA tennis team, men’s 40 and over 4.5/5.0 league vs Mercer Island. I am hopeful we can pull it out. I probably will try and play one more match before the my surgery, but not sure if I should as I won’t be of much help after my surgery for at least 3 plus months. Unless, we can make it to sectionals and hopefully nationals. Then, perhaps I would be able to possibly help with a good hip. πŸ™‚

God Bless,

Early morning…….Thanks to my dog Tilly…. Haven’t been here to post in a while

I have not posted in a while. So………..let’s get caught up, it’s my brother’s birthday today! Happy 53rd brother, I will see you tonight at the annual Tinsley dinner for your b-day and Kathy’s. I hope you will like your present! It’s been 4 months (Dec 25th) since my prostate surgery. I did a testimonial video for Dr. James Porter last week to show my unbiased support for him. It was something that I felt I needed and wanted to do. He’s the guy that saved my life along with Dr. Steve who did ordered my PSA test to begin with and to Dr. James Brevig who did my open heart surgery almost 14 years ago. I also just had my echo cardiogram last week at the U of W and will be going to see Dr. Otto to go over the results on the 20th of the month. I hope my valve leakage has stayed the same. Man……… taking a step back, it’s a TRUE MIRACLE that I am alive. PRAISE THE LORD as that is the ONLY reason I am.

I try and tell everyone I meet to get their PSA test and an accompany DRE with it. You must have BOTH to ensure things are safe. From the information that I have gathered you can have a low PSA but a DRE that might warrant further investigation if a “nudge” is detected vs the smooth feeling of the prostate.

Not sure what is going on with my dog, but I was up at 1:45 am and again at 4:45am. So, I hope I can play some good tennis this morning. Speaking of tennis….. my USTA league is starting early this year and we should have a great team, this will be the strongest team that I’ve had. My hip is still and issue and hopefully in early June, I will get it replaced by Dr. Clairbueax at Virginia Mason in Seattle. I can’t wait, having a bag hip just takes a toll on your life in general. It really does wear you down and I am sick and tired of it.

Well, make it a great day!
