Oh that is great news Hawkeye. I had really wanted an update on you. I am glad you are on the mend and if you need any help on straightening out those doctors I am only 5 hours away.

Take it slow and easy and let Mrs. Hawkeye wait on you for a little while. My cardiologist recommends a glass of red wine per day. I hope yours will do the same as soon as you get some of your strength back. Until then please take it easy. God bless you.

Welcome back, Hawkeye! Hang in there - the recovery time will be over before you know it and you'll be dining and wining again At least, we all hope so! Who else can we count on for finding new and wonderful wineries??

Hi, Guys and Gals,

I got home Wednesday afternoon. It took them 6 hours to check me out for some reason. Lots of complications all not related to the surgery which took 4+ hours. I still feel like I have been run over by a MacK truck.

I am on a extremely limited diet. I get one rubber chicken leg per day along with 1 plastic green bean but the best part is that I get to choose which meal I eat it. I am not sure if I will ever be able to go back to my favorite restaurant here in Chattanooga to eat.

Somehow it got out that I have taken many trips to Napa Valley so I had a lot of my Docs coming around wanting suggestions. I told them I would lead a tour when I got permission (maybe that will speed things up with them). I had three primary doctors whil there, a cardiac surgeon, a cardiologist and a kidney doc. The cardiac surgeon told me that his partners were really interested in wine but that he himself was a Budweiser man. Told him id I had known that, I would have asked for another surgeon.

I am in a 4-6 month recovery time. Let's hope it is shorter.

Thanks for all your prayers and thoughts, they are all appreciated. I believe that I know who Grenache girl is, but I am not at liberty to divulge that type of information.

I apologize for any and all spelling errors, I just didn't have the energy to correct.

By the way, Grenache Girl, thanks for the beautiful flower arrangement. Thanks for remembering.

-Hawkeye

I spoke with Mrs. Hawkeye late yesterday. She said he is out of ICU, doing well, "holding his own" and in good spirits. The nurses all like him and say he is funny. So, it sounds like he is being "himself"! Mrs. Hawkeye sends her thanks for the well wishes and thoughts.

I wish I had thought of that before his surgery - setting up a way for Mrs. Hawkeye to let us know how things were going... if I hear anything, I will certainly let everyone know!

If any of you have direct contact information to Mrs. Hawkeye, maybe you could check in with them and see how our pal is doing?...
We may have to up the ante beyond that Spottswoode for his "pick me up".....

I'm sorry I missed this until now. I just got back from Napa. I had some good thoughts of you while there and will continue to do so.

P.S. I would not know how to keep Damombo or Yesilovewine in line even if they needed it.

Hi Guys,

I will be off the message board for a while. I will be going into the hospital tomorrow (Monday) to have open heart surgery to replace a valve. The operation will take somewhere between 4 and 6 hours. The cutter has promised me that he would have 2 bottles of Spottswoode Cab available in case I need a transfusion. What more could I ask for?

Richard, Jeff, Bigsemi and Rebel, I will leave it up to you guys to keep Damombo and Yesilovewine in line.

If y'all are so inclined, I would appreciate a couple of thoughts somewhere around 2:30 PM eastern time tomorrow. Maybe even raise a glass to me.

I will leave it up to you all to help our friends while I am away.

Cheers!

-Hawkeye
