Health update for journal [View all]

In November 2017 i had surgery to repair an abdominal aorta aneurysm. This was inter vascular surgery, a stent was installed. The surgery was hard on my lungs, decreasing capacity.
About two months ago a routine ultrasound exam found the stent had slipped or something and it was leaking. This not good, the aneurysm growing again. Surgeon said he would go back in and repair damage stopping the leak. This was done soon after the discovery of leak.
Yesterday I went for an ultrasound to check on surgery. Unfortunately, the surgeon came in and told me it is still leaking. He said he did not think i would survive massive surgery because of my lung condition. He said he will consult with additional experts in the field to see what can be done and call me with options available.
I did not tell him, but i did tell my family, my main concern at this point is surviving long enough to vote against trump next year.
If I don't make it please do what you can to get someone to vote for me.
Thanks for all you do.
