NOTICE TO ALL:
I must share with you some very recent happenings regarding my health.
I was recently diagnosed as having a large, left-sided Bochdalek’s hernia (congenital diaphragmatic hernia, or CDH). CT scan shows that several of my organs have moved up into the hernia. The name means that this is likely the result of a congenital defect in my diaphragm that has been present since birth.
I had a consult with a surgeon at Cedars- Sinai on 9/16/20. After reading all the CT reports and viewing the images, he told me that my condition was serious and should be repaired surgically now. It is not a simple surgery. While I am 80 years old, I have no significant underlying medical issues – obesity, diabetes, lung issues, heart issues, etc. If I do nothing, it is very likely that at some point I will be in a situation requiring a complicated, emergency surgery - possibly done by someone who is not really experienced in dealing with this problem. CDH is not that common.
Faced with this decision, I have decided to go for the surgery now, while I am fairly healthy and can have the surgery done by a very qualified team of surgeons in a first-class hospital. I expect to be in the hospital for at least a week, with recovery at home taking 6-8 weeks. It will not be fun, but I think that once I have recovered, I will face a better future with at least one potential major health issue resolved. The surgery is scheduled at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles early on the morning of October 12th.
Until I had some idea which direction I was going, I did not want to trouble you with this matter. However, I now want you to be aware of with what I’m dealing. It has all happened in the last 4+ weeks.
As a result of this surgery, there will very likely be NO NEWSLETTER at the end of October/beginning of November. Whether there will be one at the end of November/beginning of December will be a function of my recovery. PLEASE - keep sending me, or Pat, things to be included in the upcoming newsletters. I expect to be returning to my “duties” as soon as I am able to do so.
I thank you in advance for your thoughts and prayers.

Well, now we are living through another amazing period in our country’s history. It is like nothing we have experienced before. This COVID-19 thing is very scary! Especially for all of us older folks! Please stay safe!
Thanks to each of you who have taken the time to submit photos and articles for the newsletter. Please keep them coming! I can only use what I receive from you. Those of you with an eye for detail will notice that the first 2017 issue was Issue #1 of Volume #17. Gary ran the Issue and Volume numbers from the very first issue, which was March 2001. Each month I was going crazy ensuring that I had the correct Volume and Issue numbers. Now they will correspond with the year and month of the year. Some editor types will think this is heresy. I think it is practical.
I am sending ONLY issues of "Bushy Tales" newsletters in .PDF format now.

Don't worry about punctuation, or even grammar, Pat Owen is outstanding at sorting these things out. Any photos you have and would like to share, send them along, too. You can just take a picture of your old photo and email it to me using your smart phone. I can do the rest. No computer skill required, No scanning necessary.
