    Just wanted to let everyone know, Ken has been posting on Facebook periodically and it appears that everything is OK. Hopefully he'll get some time to log in and give us an update.

    2. Would the metal mesh/plate be magnetic? No to that since it is titanium.
    I've been off PD for a week and a half and just saw your post. Glad you're doing fine friend. Hope you got to see your Sycamores on ESPN2 this weekend as they represented themselves well for a national audience.

    While you'll not be able to stick paper clips to your head the one side effect of the titanium is interesting. My Mrs. has a titanium plate in her neck and everytime we go through a metal detector it sets off the machine. So... don't be surprised and or embarassed the next time you go to a National Museum or such the alarm goes off. Yes, they'll actually have to get out the wand and run it over your head.
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    Tell them it's your bomb hatch. Security folks LOVE jokes like that.

    Glad to hear you are doing better. When I had my shoulder fixed it would go off at the security check points.

    Hey guys, I know I haven't been around much lately, but school, school, caoching and my wife having some medical issues has me swamped. Anyway, I am having brain surgery on Tueday to remove a non-malignant tumor that I've been carrying around for a while. It is right on the surface of my brain and under my skull, so it should be pretty non-invasive.

    I'm going to ask that you keep my wife in your thoughts and prayers more than myself. I'm not worried but she is really stressed. I can't wait for Tuesday to get overwith for her sake. Anyway, thanks in advance and I hope you all have a blessed Thanksgiving if you celebrate it and a wonderful week!
    My Step mom had I believe virtually the same thing. That was a couple years ago and she is doing fine, I tease her all the time that surgery actually made her smart

    The toughest thing was seeing her right after surgery, she looked liked she went a couple rounds with Mike Tyson in his prime

    It took a few months before she started to really feel "normal" but I thank God she really seems ok today

    God bless my friend
    Sittin on top of the world!

    I didn't really think the thing he took out was affecting me at all, but I have noticed a difference since then. It is truly like a pressure has been released in my head. I'm just so grateful we found an amazing doctor and I have been able to recover so quickly. 3 weeks ago today I had the surgery and today I went to my school for my classes Christmas party. Amazed and blessed I am!
