Hey Ernie, hang in there, because after you get your replacement part(s) you have to replace that napkin on the bastard wall with something unique and special like yourself! You've got lots to do in the future and you will!!
Love ya brotha!

I saw you for a extremely fast "Hi, Bye" at Oasis.
I am putting in my request for a longer visit after you have recovered from this surgery!
Take extra good care of yourself and I will see your happy smile again soon

Just an FYI. Some guy told me that all of those early 1970's exploitation films about sexy nurses are 100% true. So have a speedy recovery.

I'm sorry I haven't written in here yet. I sort of forgot that I could. Thinking about you and how I called you once in the middle of the night many years ago when my dad was having heart surgery. You made me feel better. I hope we can do the same for you. Big hugs now. Careful hugs later,

I didn't know your surgery was postponed until I got a hold of Eric October & he gave me the news.
You have been in the embrace of my thoughts and I am holding you close in my mind.
Have an awesome surgery & kick some ass!
Can't wait to see you bright eyed & bushy tailed after surgery!
What a birthday gift!
Much love, peace and health.
I love you my sweet friend.

Ernie, so the countdown begins. I can't believe I'm finally on the other side. This has been so hard. Been trying to think of a name for the valve. You are so clever with your puns. I love this chair too . I dont have to Work to get up. I will be home for at least 7 or 8 weeks. Will enjoy it. Wish I could sweep and mop the floors. :(. Anyways, stay well. Lots of liquids and rest and stay away from crowds. Next Wednesday huh? Keep rockin and take care of your mom.

Counting down with you, big guy. The time will fly. Suggest renting out chair for 15 minutes for $15 pre surgery to neighbors to pay for the thing. Get rid of that cold! Best wishes
\"MadDog\" Mike posted a note for Ernie that says:
Ernie, that chair has already been invented
You got any connections with the propmaster from the movie Idiocracy? :)
Lynn posted a note for Ernie that says:
I am with you Ernie in the big countdown...All your cyber friends are!! We have to stick together on this life raft!
Get into a good mind set, get some fresh air, stop torturing your saintly mother and keep writing to us!
James S. Martinez posted a note for Ernie that says:
I am certain all will go well with the surgery. We'll keep you in our prayers.
Sorry I missed seeing you and everyone else for the class reunion. Heard y'all had a great time.
You're looking pretty healthy in your photos friend. Look like you can still run a 10-second 100-yard dash.
P.S. Tequila helps for pain too....or at the least it'll help you forget about it.
Frans Vischer posted a note for Ernie that says:
Sorry to read about your upcoming operation, but I'm glad you'll be better and healthy for it. I'm keeping you in my thoughts and prayers- a lot of people are rooting for you. I'm looking forward to hearing that big laugh of yours soon. Keep smiling, bro!

I have been avoiding journaling for a while. i was the unlucky 1% that wound up with endocarditis after the surgery(that means all of you are in the clear- statistically speaking .. right?) 11 weeks after my original surgery i had to have another valve replacement and now on IV antibiotics for 6 weeks at home. i am doing really well . Mine was a really rare event. I have so enjoyed your posts and know you will do just fine.. sorry your cold is holding up the works but they know what they are doing postponing. I am now 2 weeks after my second surgery and feeling just fine... even having the surgery twice in 3 months i find the actual postop pain and recovery very minimal... sorry i havent posted but didnt want to discourage anyone who hasnt had surgery yet. However if I can do this twice, you will do great...
Cindy posted a note for Ernie that says:
Ernie, SO sorry to hear about the postponement. Yuck! Waiting seems to be the hardest part - of course, I haven't done recovery yet so who am I to speak, but hey it sounded good. Try to enjoy the time....or at least enjoy the booze with your Mom. I'm cut off as of today - realized what a bummer that was at about 5pm.
Hope you're feeling better soon!

Hey Ernie! I had no idea! So sorry you have to go through all that! At least it will be behind you very soon.
Your journal is awesome, never knew you wrote so well!
Miss seeing you at the studio.
Elaine posted a note for Ernie that says:
Oh Ernie, Ernie, Ernie!!!
Tell your lovely Mom hello for me and I have a feeling she will be wanting to either hang you up to age or just chop you to bits before this is over.
I am so sorry you have had the delay with the surgery, but you are on the Floresville United Methodist Church prayer list.
I love reading your posts, it is a wonderful highlight to my day. Esp since school has started again and I am dealing with class after class after class of minions. The kindergarten minions are gonna be the death of me. They have the attention span of gnats and I have to try and teach them how to use a computer. LOL Me: no honey, the mouse is not to be chewed on. Headphones go on your ears, not in your mouth. ughhhh
Keep us posted and I think you may become vegetarian after this, as you may feel eating beef will be cannibalistic. hahahahaha
Silvia Pompei posted a note for Ernie that says:
Mamma mia, Ernie, what the hell??? So much to read about and ponder here, but for now my message is: BE WELL!!!
I'll check back in and read your posts, I've signed up for the emails. By the way... I had no idea you were a comic writer too! You had me rolling with laughter. All these years I just saw your drawings, never read you words. You are multi-talented. You are the one having surgery and you make everyone else laugh! Keep those spirits up, you have lots of love coming form all sides. Miss your groggy hugs in the studio... sending one your way!
