9 days in LaGrange, Texas

I flew from Omaha to Houston on April 5th, on the flight I laid back to relax but had a breathing problem so I sat up, then tried it again and couldn't breathe so I sat up and didn't have a problem for the rest of the flight.  I met Mark Percival in Houston and off we went..A couple of days later I called the ambulance thinking I was having a heart attack, but I wasn't.  I went to a doctor the next day and they made an appointment to see a doctor 10 days later in LaGrange,Texas. Danny & Kay took me to  the emergency room on the 18th of April with a collapsed lung after 9 days in the hospital I was informed that they had done all that they could do and wanted me to see a specialist  in Austin,Texas so I was transfered to a hospital in Austin thinking I was going to have an operation which was a 60 mile ride in an ambulance. The lung doctor walked in and said my condition was normal and he wasn't going to do anything and not to do anything, not drive, not lift, push, pull do nothing and see him in a week, so that is what I am going to do.
I always thought I was going to get out the next day and kept telling Connie not to come down, but when they were going to transfer me to Austin, Connie and Missy drove straight through to meet me there along with Danny and Kay Brown. I appreciate everyone being there.

Mark Percival put up with me over 2 weeks while we didn't know what was wrong, he had to do most of the work, I couldn't do it. I hated to see him go. Thank You Mark.
