One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

Thanks all for the kind words. Lucky to have  made so many good friends from the kite world.

Doing pretty well here and hope to go home soon.  The bowel and other systems take a while to wake up after such a surgery. Once things come back on line, I'll get to go.  It happens when it happens. Like Jan said, I won't need another surgery on my damn liver! Would have been a complex and dangerous surgery.  Now I've just got to get back on my feet from this go around and I shouldn't have to come back here for a good long time. 

Can't wait to see the real world again. Looking forward to seeing my dogs. Amazing how much the little guys can cheer you up. Wish they could come to the hospital.

Like Jan said, going to fly kites this summer.  Hope to see many of you guys out on the field so we can bs and toss some kites around , just like old times. Being here helps one to appreciate how much fun there is to be had and how many great people there are to share the time with.

See you soon,
JW

Just have your wife slap some "therapy dog" badges on them.  Problem solved  Wink  I know what you mean though - dogs can be pretty good medicine.

Glad to hear you've come through this with a much better result than you were expecting.  Now get the old plumbing going, and get the hell out of there  Cheesy

John,
  I haven't been to kite hill in a long time, but I can't think of any better reason to go there then to see an old friend again.

Take Care

Hi all,

Just made it home from the hospital! Feels very good to be out of there.

I'm thinking I'll be doing a lot better in only a couple weeks from now after I get some strength back and figure my diet out.

JW,

You'll be up and about in no time!

By all means listen to the experts for now, but afterward, stick with unprocessed food as much as you can and you'll be fine.
After all, who doesn't like the sound of antioxidants taking out free radicals that run tear a$$ing around your system  Wink  'nature knows best'....

Yes, I'm going very slowly, especially with the diet.  I don't want to risk ending up in the ER.  I'm eating tinny amounts at a time and seeing what happens.  Luckily, this chicken soup my bro made me seems to be fine with the system. 

Thanks,

Dang John!
Sounds like you've been put through the ringer...   ...again.
I don't know what I do without my colon.
Anyway.
I am glad to hear that you are going to be all right.

It would be nice to see you again, and all of my Kite Hill friends.
Those were good times.

Would be fun to see you again.  I'll try to organize something for this summer.  Doesn't have to be a big deal.

Good to hear John.

 Grandpa K lived a more then full life with few restrictions after a similar surgery. Once things balance out he didn't seem to have any diet restrictions or he ingnored them (like he would've) without many problems. You'll be running around and jumping and climbing trees in no time, after all he was in his 70's and doing it.
