well once again im calling on the powers of the yb


see in about4 hrs a dear friend of mine{bob mckenna}is going under the knife for a second time this year

the first time in may he had his entire knee replaced from mid shin area to mid thigh-the first surgery led to major complications,including blod clots that traveled to his lungs requiring filters in his bloodstream to help this situation,he died once on the table the first time and needed to be defib'ed back{paddled}-he already scared the shit out of us once,now this new knee needs some work and the area around it isnt healing properly-and they believe a blood vessel may have ruptured in the knee filling the knee with fluid and blood that drains when it wants to-he had a fall after this first surgery

worst part is 3 weeks ago we buried his lovely wife of 25 years for major cancer and stomach complications :(

his son is also a good friend of mine and is so distraught and i just dont know what to do or say anymore-talking to bob a few minutes ago on the phone and wishing him the best was so tough to do knowing it may be the last time i hear from him

even after losing his wife a few weeks ago his spirits have been as good as someone can get in this situation-but now were all really scared

please pray for bob
