Howdy Folks

I have a couple of friends at work, one named Glenn who has had major heart bypass a few years ago had a stroke recently and isn't doing too well. Good guy, very mellow. After 30 years with the company, furloughed and had to relocate from St Louis to Texas. Recently he was recalled to St Louis but turned it down in fear of being hit with another furlough shortly after going back. Had a stroke a few days later. His hearts in St Louis but too risky of a move. Its a dizzy world around airplanes. He ran out of sick days and has used the last of is vacation up keeping money flowing in.

Another fellow named Chris, jack of all trades and talented airplane tech has a baseball sized tumor in an area between his heart and lung. There was a minor surgery a few weeks ago to knab a piece of the tumor but he was told the sample wasn't large enough and tests were inconclusive whether it was malingnent or benign. Pretty invasive surgery is scheduled for Monday. Everybody knows and likes a guy like Chris.

2 good guys. Real good guys.

Tough news...thoughts and prayers for them. Hearing stories like this make me rethink whether I should be so opposed to a national healthcare plan.

Haisja,

Sorry to hear about your friends and co-workers. It's bad enough that have to be dealing with their medical issues, without the additional burden of how they're going to pay their bills. Don't know what to tell you beyond that I'm sending good thoughs and prayers out to both Glenn and Chris and their families that somehow things work out for the best.

Jon - keeping your friends in my prayers and wishing them health and comfort. And sending a hug your way, too, for being a kind and thoughtful friend.
