Health Update And James Wisniewski Injury

First about me.  Had a tough 48 hours or so and was told to take it easy the rest of the day, but here I am with a quick update.

I have a small growth in my small intestine which causes all sorts of trouble.  The good thing is most of the types of tumors are not cancerous and can be removed with a simple procedure.

I will probably face that soon but in the meantime, medication should help with the issues I was experiencing.

Thanks to all for the well wishes and I will be taking it easy the rest of the day.

Also this, hockey related...

RALEIGH, NC – Ron Francis, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that defenseman James Wisniewski will undergo surgery on his left knee after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) during Thursday night’s game in Nashville. Recovery time for the injury is estimated at six months.

Acquired by the Hurricanes on June 27 from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Anton Khudobin, Wisniewski skated just 47 seconds of his Hurricanes debut prior to suffering the injury. Wisniewski, 31, is in his 11th NHL season, after totaling eight goals and 26 assists (34 points) in 69 games with Columbus and Anaheim in 2014-15. The Canton, MI, native was originally selected by the Chicago Blackhawks in the fifth round (156th overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. He has appeared in 552 career NHL regular-season games with Chicago, Anaheim, the New York Islanders, Montreal, Columbus and Carolina, totaling 53 goals and 221 assists (274 points) and 459 penalty minutes.

Glad to hear you’ve discovered what was causing your symptoms. The anxiety over not knowing can often be as bad as the condition itself. Rest easy and do what the doctors tell you to (no matter how frustrating that is).

Heck, just knowing Cleary is off the roster for good should help some. grin
