Having surgery for feeding tube relief today

 

India

Today in about two hours I will go to surgery to have a feeding tube added to my small colon to make it easier to eat and not be upset in my GI Tract.  This has been many weeks of problems and I HOPE THIS HELPS!  I must eat to gain weight and strength, but it has been a struggle indeed.

This should not be permanent, but it should give me much needed strength. Please say a prayer that this solves this problem.

I attach one of my favorite covers ever in my career.  I shot this very gentle image traveling in India with my BTO Group and many of them saw how hard I had to talk this sweet lady into posing in the sunlit Amber Fort.  She was very shy and I really had to convince her to model for me.  Taught my group perseverance for sure!

Club Magazine that year (2013) entered this cover into a magazine contest and it won best Travel Cover Photo of the Year in all of North America…. beating all the National Geographic Magazines, Islands, Conte Nast, etc, etc.  Was a special prize also as they sent me on a 95- ft Windjammer Sailboat week trip all along the beautiful Maine Coast.  I had a ball sailing that week and eating lobsters.

Hope I can report good news soon as far as my GI Tract results.  I am ready to leave the hospital for sure.  I send positive vibes to all of you.
