From people who wanna talk to him that David. Menu had a tough time here for the past several weeks. Watching your dad go through a long illness and then. I'm very sad to report to our listeners that your dad his past. Set time for you obviously in your family. I did absolutely gut it out. My dad was. Just. Just a perfect man today you know and I idolize him you know it it's it's crazy when you see. My parents were from Jamestown battalions from Jamestown this before court Jamestown turned into a left ice. There's a nice quiet. And so be it diet out there. Everyone's. Does that PS family there are two daughters and two sons. And d.'s four siblings archer. The best of friends they talk all the time. And so you know your aunts your uncles. There are there party your life and and you see you don't know how weight issue in some way. And out of mind of a dad had been together almost fifty years every single day. High school sweethearts. That I saw. On the most. Perfect in storybook. Loves. And to see my mom are react to losing your best friend. It. It just aptly got you but I'll tell you this beautiful part is able may instantly and my Brothers are here. And working we're gonna take care and remember my dad. Bigot like as a huge radio guy. And I remember you know I was introduced to come by hourly talk about release did a sports show in the ninety's when the bills were amazing. And so I would go to school and listen to breakfast with the hourly and then I would like Gil Alba Mike Gavin here all wander. And my dad would talk to the radio and I will be like while if I want to press my dad. Comedy jam the Radio One of these days and the decision. To decide to go to radio was really. Maybe two to make my happy because she shot. Yeah it's the only time I can you know you're really shut out. I thought I. You know and I did you know we talk a lot David but I didn't know the your debt that was such a fan of of radio in general and ended that he was paying such close attention. To the show with you and and that's awesome from afar and it's the beauty of it all they did digital age with streaming etc. so he was plugin dollar that's. My dad would listen for hours that day. He would text into real time he would tell me a backdrop comes got a point here you're gonna look stupid. You know he would he would literally give me play by play of every thing. And that you can always tell me to stop jostling the bike which kind of annoys me to be honest. But felt like my dad had doubt that kind of critique that I loved them and they ought to get it it's. You see it if it's so weird when what you see your your someone that you idolize and you see them at their at the end of their life and I got to tell you. This is a horrible experience. But the people hostage if there is any you know it's holiday time. That any opportunity that you could support hospice in Western New York. I gotta tell you these people are some of the most amazing human beings in the world they're strangers stick with your home and they literally hold your hand. While your loved ones you know leaves. And it I I just can't tell you how how beautiful they were and how important they are and really how they're they really should be appreciated more. Yet you know and do we've been through that I've been through that in it it is it's it's first of all it's terrific as you've but you know now experience but. It is amazing. That the job that those people there you know every time you wanna complain about your job. I'll pinch myself and think about those people and I you know you have to be going through it in Florida but. Obviously got a amazingly talented and compassionate people in those same rules appear and it is remarkable what they do so I think it's great the that you say that time are you still with us here. Perry had just won a we're gonna let David go here before the next a break I just wanna give you to the opportunity to. Go back and forth here could stymie or you're going to be kind of fading away from hourly and I'll be the first few weeks issue I recover from your surgery on Friday. They came to use a better term been fatal. I want it say that they have the outcome mentioned these 244. Possible 24 transfusions. Did at least think about that status a lot and we talk about the surgeries all the time and other technology has increased in everything. It's amazing at the end of the day. It's really crazy to think about stopping human heart working on the human articulate seen him putting me here there. We are blessed that it will be able it would be honest with years ago. Something like this with a death sentence you were gone. And so they're extending life. Other doing amazing things and I look at my debt 73 years old. That just seems so young to me and it's creepy to think that because in Russia you know 51 of the good life good job dead. Yeah America the was spoiled to think that. You know we're all of my relatives live to be 95. Yet time you know David brings up a really good point we're just speaking with the caller they're not too long ago who went through this in 1983 and oh my god the team you know the change in. Medical technology. For what she went through you know in 1983 to what you're about to go through. You know the end result you know you're after is the same but the way they do it now is just if it's remarkable I'm not belittling what your boss put to go through by any stretch it's a serious stuff but. The technology's amazing right. I'll be the outcomes. What you do you can actually just if you look at the abstracts on line. The outcomes for open heart surgery and bypassed. Has that improved dramatically via the mortality rate is not anywhere close to what it used to be a in oh. And duct tape David's father was just far too young 73. Years old. And we live in the society now where you know eighty it's it's the new AD but people are are hitting eighty more and more and more. And anytime we lose somebody in their seventies. If it's very difficult to or in their sixties or you know god forbid that in the fifties and especially. You know what it's. I know that this is so cliche about their cardiac heart disease is in fact. The silent killer. And you know David my obviously officer for the number of discussions about this and you know Dave good news is going to be going through the grieving process and he. It is you know obviously will be good days there will be bad days because David for those who don't know was extremely close to his father and David stand was Byrd are proud of the work David did on the radio. My mum on the other hand are you Tom Bauerle mother. Who I I don't local news speaks. I need an adult. But David is. David is going to be David is going to be fine you know both of us so all of us actually have. Experience. That the parents or a parent and there's a special kind of of sadness the comes along with that. And in some ways sister reminder of people circle of life and beat perpetuate shin of out of your DNA. And the closing of one chapter and he realized that you take a different role in terms of the family totem pole was you know going from the kids to the elder statesman so. I guess the long story short everything is dynamic everything is changing and and I think we're all entering into different chapters in our lives and sadly sometimes entering into the new chapters that brings with a great deal of of sadness and and reflection. Yes David you know time is lost his dad I've lost my dad and I think what you'll find is. You're gonna go through obviously very difficult time but you'll remember your dad in such positive ways to you know things. Sounds like I think when you're working when you're on the radio you're going to be thinking about him and I think that's gonna help me get through for sure. Well listen I Tom Tom was really sweet you know walked me through a lot of what to expect and and that on the spot on and and you know I was shared with these some of the things that. That that Buick through which you're dead with the VA in and and can be made to people that helped him. Listen this is or it's a horrible spot and go there one thing debt relief. He had to change me when I was young might get hugs were like. I mean we were family I I told my dad I love them I kissed him on the mall he was at work Italian man where I'm ashamed of well I love for each other and are simply. It simply is if she's got. And it's all you know there and ran him for all of their gathered around the bed were saying good by the way our father and I had with the chance to. To move might dead on the hospital bed. And we were alone and he wrapped his arms around me that kind of brace himself but to me. It was so hard I had when I was six years old and I got stung by B and I was able to just hold my dad like one last time and it was. It was the perfect ending for me and and it's horrible things that yes yes dad you're horrible but again it was a very religious guy. I have never in my life I've seen some amazing Americans. Do some crazy stuff. For god and country and and unfortunately with that you see a lot of tragedy and trauma. And I can tell you what. A person facing cancer knowing that they are dying. Knowing that they have hours to live and they look at it hit it head on. That is the equivalent of you know charge and machine gun nest that there's nothing different with fighting that fight. Then fighting terrorism and you know cancer survivors god bless you and support hospice. Sorry Dave you'll hear you on the air tomorrow and before really gonna just read a text.

There's a very important part of edits by will be done at one of the hardest ones that we face as human beings is. If we are asking the almighty that our that is will be done. That we have to accept the results even if we don't necessarily like them but we have to stated that whatever the result that is what was intended to be so. I have. I don't have any long term trepidation so about that but I'm very grateful for your prayers just actually been proven scientifically that. People who were praised for even if they don't know after being prayed for have this statistically significant better outcome. There are those who have operated for. Which I find fascinating. Larry well you've got the prayers coming from bill bill thank you very much Martha is in Williams though he Martha you're on WBM with Tom hourly with top. And Jack and I'm not that I'm group in the new I would settle. Little genuinely. At who went back catalog outlet. That could eventually confirmed that again. I'm saying. I have been threatened.

She said look if you look at that he would never got amnesty decree. Mood that that can build a stack. I'm Chad can do England. I would try to give them an in depth. I was solid acting was what they did. Epidemic at Christmas time there's an internal. That this goes south so deliberately. Tried to get people that I eat out compared to discipline that it. Got outside early in the little bit and indifferent about it and I had a chance. We've been proud of god bless you. And not spend time. Actually I was like a maniac. Sometimes yeah. I couldn't get a budget today and it was better stop. Kelly Martha thank you very much appreciate all that. Well Somalia's future bride is very very intent on making sure that I eat too. Properly. Actually that's where we started talking delicious healthy food together. A good remarked to work doctor roster that it's very interesting that. It would you know for the past month we start eating broccoli and Brussels sprouts and then know that all that stuff went with some minor exceptions and of all the of all the times display that you get pretty nasty. CPB for this could see it as it is ironic you have to laugh about it Larry Lola. Don't lose thirty pounds because you know I don't know it'll be like word in the field somewhere with you mean you can't lose thirty pounds that's Fisher. Go back. Eight Darcy up in Youngstown Darcy or WBM a time buy hourly. Eight RC hand just a moment because I just made a bad for 53 at WB yen. We're gonna let time go in just a few minutes and then we can continue with your phone calls after 5 o'clock wishing Tom well. You're close encounters with some cardiac experiences will take those phone calls as well after the 5 o'clock hour. Wanna get a few more minutes and a few more calls with Tom let's get back to Darcy Darcy sorry about that you're back on the time hourly and WB yen. I think Tim you're gonna break up all the guys are out. And permit its wish you well and I had two things do you and we donate blood your name that you need so much of it. And what. Priority life like since this like conducting its capital Q what has become crystal clear that was. Not so much like what come into focus if you wanna share that pure. I think it's great that you're bringing this to the worker to them the same age issue and you think you're you're not. Old enough to have this happen in that sense you know and then somebody your age it does happen. Opens your eyes and goes well yeah yes. Yeah where there. When well actually just I mean look it's it's always a good idea to donate blood if you'd like to but I do so worked or sort crystal clear. The reason for people late in the surgery is sort of my platelet count get to that level where we don't have to go through all of those transfusions. If they were to have done it yesterday for debate before then we would have been talking that increasing their risk of extra penguin nation exponentially. So. I tend not to be a big error. Sometimes Arab leaders sometimes and not that term with all that with all blessings. I should be able to get through the surgery with only in my own blood being used. This first things that have become crystal clear this might actually surprise people but. I actually do have a very strong faith in the in god and higher power of the almighty god the almighty so. I think if anything. It's simply has solidified what committee where is. I know that surprises a lot of people given my language in the way I live my life prep. I have a very very strong. Trait that. His will be done and sometimes I think it's good to put that Padilla. Sometimes it's good to put it to the test because anybody can say that when the times are good. I think true test of faith is when things are so good when you do actually have a risk of realizing mortality. Do you hold on to that say or do you abandon. So I think. That has just. Become more crystal clear that it was but it was already got a crystal clear. And what I have a chance to meet people like to picked gates Dick vascular institute this guy. From Andover mass please the president of gates says he came over to see newspapers Christopher lane. Big fan of his regular thirty WB EMI he offered as well wishers and the medical director and VP. Buffalo general medical center doctor Colin McMahon all pokey is a term or west guy. And I'm looking at more these guys he was kind enough to drop by and say hello and offer words of of encouragement so I don't want to give a shout out to those gentlemen and really good you know and you know the other thing too crystal clear. I'm glad you brought that up and left and it gave shouts out to Chris lane and our Colin McMahon medical doctor is that. You know it it's so easy because we are searching practically divided country I've done my part to make that happen but because we are so practically divided. That when you see people of various backgrounds various persuasions various ethnicity. And they're all working together for one common goal and that is the betterment of the health of the patient. It is very reassuring in the history did distant times that. People from such disparate backgrounds can focus on the common purpose and make things better for all of us. Terry Tate Tom Morgan thank you very much Darcy for the call by the way and that commonly go get some rest and which all the best will be in touch obviously as we have been and I will keep watching for the updates on FaceBook and the hourly in Bellevue page.
