Default New News from Gordo !!!

As some of you may know, I've had quite an eventful summer. I've experienced some incredible highs and devastating lows. The begining of summer I had an incredible opportunity with Gino in his new Super V Dragon. Unfortunately I never made it to Florida. The day I was to fly out, I suffered a severe anurysm.
A lot of things worked in my favor that day. including having an immediate response from the fire and Medical crew whos outstanding on-scene treatment gave me a fighting chance against some heavy odds, and doctors that knew just what to do to fix an already abby-normal brain.
I spent roughly the next 2 months in the hospital
enduring a number of surguries. Even though my friends and family had been told my chances of survival were not good, On August 11th of this year, I walked out of the hospital with friends, family, and one particular young lady who had been there with me from the begining.I've known this young lady for quite some time, and reaized that something I've been missing all these years had been right here in front of me all along.
A week ago, I asked this young lady to marry me.

She said yes.

Congratulations Gordo!

It's great to hear that you are up and at it again.

I know a lot of prayers went out for you and maybe she is one of the blessings.

Take Care and have a great Turkey Day!
