    Alan came out of surgery last week and had been doing fine. Yesterday something went wrong, his heart rate got up to 220 while being taken back to hospital in the ambulance. He has experienced kidney failure and swelling of the latest knee surgery. He is in the CCU. I will try to keep everyone informed of his condition.

    For now I think no news is good news. I will speak with his son in the morning and let every one know.

    Just got off the phone with Alan, he sounded like hell but at least his kidneys are working again. His heart has calmed down since the kidney's function. It appears the pain meds for the knee surgery along with a touch of the flu dehydrated him, so with nothing to do the kidneys went into shut down mode, which sent signals to his to do something. Thanks for everyones prayers and good wishes, I know it helped. He is going to try to call me tomorrow and could be out of the hospital on Sunday if every thing goes well.

    David thought mine and others who posted over on HR would be appropriate here.
