USMC "The Few The Proud"
That day that the doc talked to you after your op, after you thanked the Lord you should have bought a lottery ticket, regardless I think you came out smelling like a rose. Glad your ok.That's how to spend your money. Part of my tongue had to be cut out back in 2004. The first question the ENT surgeon asked me after looking at the sore on my tongue was, "Do you chew tobacco?" I hung my head and said "Yes". After the surgery, he came to check on me in the recovery room and said it wasn't cancer. He put his hand on my shoulder and spoke very slowly , "Don't chew any more tobacco, OK? ".
What I went through was absolutely terrifying, but the Lord had great mercy on me! Many times it doesn't work out that way. You're so much better off with a nice gun!
