RECOVERY


Good Morning; Afternoon or Evening,

Today is 18 August 2015.  I want to express my deep, sincere appreciation to all of you who have expressed well wishes and Prayers for me.  On 10 July, I was rushed to the Veterans Medical Center here in Miami.  Arriving at 0605, A quick CT Scan, and by 0800 I was in for Emergency Surgery, which lasted 8 hours & 49 miniutes.  I then spent 7 nights & 6 days in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit.  A Femoral Artery Aneursym, the size of a Mandarin Orange was repaired by Vascular Surgeron Dr. Arsha Bornak, with a team of another Vascular Surgeon, a Plastic Surgeon, Dr,. Harvey Chim (to place a muscle from my right leg over the aneursym repair section (to prevent infection).  I want to express my sincere appreciation to the team of four doctors, the Anesthesiologist and Surgical Nurses, and to the SICU team of Doctors & Nurses.  The Miami VA is the BEST in the nation.  I have followed the Doctor’s Orders with almost seven weeks of ‘Bed Rest’  (HATED IT!), and now am eager to respond to over 3,800 emails on my website (mphelps@MichaelPhelpsNovels.com).  I am very grateful to see the sales of my latest books, ‘DAVID JANSSEN-Our Conversations-Volumes One & Two’ and ‘DAVID JANSSEN-MY FUGITIVE’ by Ellie Janssen & Michael Phelps have continued without my being able to market them via the Internet.

I am BACK, and hope to spend at least a couple of hours a day as my strength and energy continues to improve.  This has been a very long and hard recovery . . . guess I’m getting old!

THANK YOU ALL!

Best regards,

Mike Phelps

    Michael, take your time and recover completely. There’s a peaceful gallery of sunsets over at Before Sundown on the Welcome Page for you to view. Could be helpful to calm your mind and concentrate on healing! Chryssa (aka Christine)

    I don’t know you, but that condition certainly sounds ultra-serious, so I’m happy you got quick help and I do wish you well!

    Glad you are doing better…too close for comfort, that is for sure. Similar experience here with bypass surgery and my best advice is to do EVERYTHING that the doctors tell you to do. Healing takes time. Godspeed with your recovery and our prayers are with you! Take care, Pat
