Big Smoke Needed For Walosi!!!!

    I'm sad to have to bring y'all this news but Walosi was put back in the hospital Tuesday night. He had a relapse of the CIDP that put him in the hospital in September. Walosi also has Congestive Heart Failure. He was at least able to tell them what was going on and that he needed help. Walosi is on a respirator and is undergoing plasma "replacemment" therapy which is supposed to do away with the footprint of the disease he has. With the complications Walosi is very weak. This is the last sentence of his son Brian's email to me...

    "Yvsa, right now all we can do is "bring smoke" and pray hard. :( Please put out this prayer request and I'll keep you posted.

    Sad news. I will wish him a fast recovery, and hope that he can rejoin us when he feels better.

    Smoke up. If somebody knows Wal's full name, dob, and birthplace send it along and I'll stick him on Medicine Buddha prayer list.

    Thanks for posting this Yvsa. Not exactly the news anyone wants to hear but at least if we know we can help in some small way. Consider it done.

    Done. I hope he can make a full recovery, so he can raise the next generation of woodchucks. His advice on woodfinishing has always been right on target, and resulted in some beautiful wood handled Khuks hanging on my wall. He IS one of the good guys! :)

    This in from Brian who has been here lurking under Walosi's name so if you should see it you'll know who it is.;)

    Brian wrote in email to Yvsa:
    .... "Talked to the hospital this morning, Dad did well through the
    night. He got allot of rest.
    He's a tough old bird, too stubborn to let things get him down for
    long.... and that's a major plus on his side."

    Sometimes it pays to have the genes of old survivors on your side. The Cherokee were/are tough, had to be too survive all of these years.
    If anyone will make it through sheer stuborness it will be my brother Walosi!!!!:D
