I am sure many of you are wondering  about how Craig (Dogger) is doing.  Unfortunately, it seems he is not doing to well!  Evidently what started as a bad back that had him in extreme pain and down for months was complicated by a biopsy of his back that allowed an infection to enter the blood stream where it settled in his heart and has attacked his heart valves.  He is currently in the hospital and he thinks he will have to have open heart surgery to replace damaged valves.  This is certainly not good my OT brethern!  So I am calling for increased prayer support for our ailing brother!
He currently has his son's laptop at the Hospital so he is reachable however his energy levels are at all time lows!  I am sure he would appreciate a note or two but please don't bombard him with a bazillion questions!
Below is a copy of a PM he has given permission to share!
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
Damn Craig,  I don't know what to say!  The Blue bird of happiness sure has left a calling card on your windowsill.  This is very serious stuff!  I hope and pray the antibotics kill the infection and there is no damage to any heart valves!  Thank God they found this problem!
You make sure you listen and obey the Doctor's Orders!  Your already on the prayer list but just got bumped up several pegs!  Rest assured that you are missed by many on the OT!
Ted, pryo and myself have been updating everybody when you check in.  I am sure this news will concern many!  If there is anything I or we can do please DON"T hesitate to ask, afterall we are Brothers!
 
I know your a fighter so I'll just say TAKE CARE of yourself and do what the Doctor's say!
That is an order by the way!  You take care my friend and brother!

Morning Bud! The following is a copy & paste of a note I sent to Ted tosave time and my flagging energy!
 
Hi Ted thought I should give you guys an update cause I sure haven't been around much.
 
I am living proof at this point that if I didn't have bad luck I'd have none at all!  Sending you this PM from Sunnybrook Health Sciences hospital, Have been here for a week.  As it turns out my back trouble has become the least of my worries.  I may have mentioned that I was having constant fevers and night sweats.  I was really feeling bad last week so checked in.  Turns out I have a nifty little issue called endocarditis, just a fancy word for inflamation in the heart valves.  Apparently this bug migrates as well and is what kicked off the back issues.
 
I am on an extensive antibiotic regime and will probably be here another 4-6 weeks.  Have to meet with the cardio guys next week to see if I might need surgery to replace an infected valve.
Remember when you and I talked a couple of weeks ago?  Well it seems this bug got into my blood stream from that back door procedure I had.  That is a crappy state of affairs!
 
If I need to have the valve replaced my stay will be longer.  My son brought his laptop in last night for me.  Please feel free to pass along my PM to any of the fellas who may be wondering where the hell I am.  I would love to PM them all but just don't have the time or the stamina to do it.
 
 
Neat huh!  Hope to hell you're doing better Bud!

A note for hope. A good friend here has been fighting this same battle for the last year and a half. Minor back sugery that got infected. He has been back home for 2 months and is getting around with a walker. Stay strong and recovery can be there for you. It is a long hard battle. Make sure that you have someone close to you around to watch over you. The Doctors and Nurses will not give you the care to recover. It has to be your friends and family. Our prayers are with you.

A Collect for Grace. O Lord, our heavenly Father, Almighty and everlasting God, who hast safely brought us to the beginning of this day; Defend us in the same with thy mighty power; and grant that this day we fall into no sin, neither run into any kind of danger; but that all our doings, being ordered by thy governance..., may be righteous in thy sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Just got in the door and read this.  I thought that you had a back problem, Craig.  Well, we will put you up front on our prayer list so that you can get home quickly and get healed up.  I hope that those antibiotics work right away.  Get well soon. 
 
After you are feeling better we will work out a schedule where you can work at the Ed Show office for a few months of fifteen hour shifts in order for you to catch up on your work!     Bucky

Guys Craig is feeling much better since the Antibiotics have broken his long term fever and night sweats allowing him to get good rest but today he had the ultrasound test that will determine wither or not he has to have open heart sugery to replaced damage valves!  His Cardio vascular Surgeon son-in-law seems to think thats a given!  He also thinks its no big deal....a routine surgery now-a-days.
