I am a Texas boy by birth and by grace. I am 4.5 years post liver transplant that was forced as a result of Hepatitis C. I’m starting to feel “normal” again. (That would be the NEW normal). I am currently on my 7th treatment for Hepatitis C. Hopefully, this is the one we have been looking for
I am a Christian and constitutionally conservative. I am married and have 4 children, ages 21-30, a daughter in law, and a grandson (2.5 years old) and a granddaughter (2 months old).
My wife and I have a French bulldog (Murphy) and a Rag-doll cat (Oiu Oiu). I also have “yard friends” – 3 squirrels and numerous songbirds – that I feed routinely.
I like to read (just about anything I can get my hands on), listen to music (no rap or disco, please) and watch movies.
I am semi retired, working part-time as a researcher at Baylor St Luke’s Medical Center and the Texas Heart Institute.
I have help my wife remodel various areas in our house, and I “farm” a small raised garden. Nothing better than homegrown tomatoes!
In my spare time, I volunteer for the county at election times, I recently campaigned for our new governor, Greg Abbott, I volunteer at church and I have just been selected a a spokesperson for the American Liver Foundation. I am also the vice president of the Greater Houston Society of Echocardiography and on the Membership Steering Committee for the American Society of Echocardiography. I am open to other challenges as my health permits!
Never a dull moment!
