Well this family has been busy since Christmas,No wood cut yet. My eldest son became Ill about Christmas and had been fighting an infection,the doctors were giving him antibiotics after antibiotics,and he would get better, then sick again. Eventually he was hospitalized for 5 days and given IV antibiotics and killed off the bacteria. On his follow up His doctor discovered a heart problem, this was related to the infection which had turned into infectious endocarditis before they got the infection killed off. It had damaged his aortic heart valve. The local doctors were at a loss as what to do next,and as the weeks went by waiting on them he was getting weaker,but weekly blood cultures were showing no infection . Well the wife and I contacted a doctor at the heart hospital and got him an appointment on a Thursday,That doctor reviewed what had happened and listened to his heart,then scheduled him for a test the next day (Friday). When the test was complete the doctor Admitted him immediately to the hospital and scheduled him for open heart surgery on the following Monday,to replace his aortic heart valve. After the surgery the surgeon said that 2 of the 3 leaflets on the valve were destroyed from the infection,and that 70 % of the blood that was pumped by the heart was back washing in to his heart, He was only pumping 30 % of the blood out of his heart. The surgery was a great success, and now 4 weeks later he feels great except he says his chest hurts a little every now and then. YA' THINK!! The doctor traced the entry point of the infection to a small tooth cavity he had been putting off having filled. Who would have thought that a cavity could kill you. The point is FIX YOUR TEETH, Im am hoping to get to cut, split and stack wood over Memorial weekend. And I have about 1/2 cord stacked in the barn to start next season some standing dead to get and maybee a pecan tree which will season fairley quickley.
