Life was good and we were just cruising along until 2010 when Chris suffered a brain aneurism. Fortunately we had surgery before it burst and she came out of it without any paralysis, thank heaven!
That same year I was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis with a diagnosis of probably three years to live. The disease was progressive and took me to the brink until I became very fortunate and was accepted for a lung transplant. I received the new lung on Christmas Eve 2011. I am so grateful for this gift and the ability to continue a while longer. Life is good; very good. My daughter put together a blog covering the journey which can be found on "dwightosborn.blogspot.com" or "Ozzy's Second Wind".
2012 I got to know the University Hospital very well. They are wonderful and the best staff on earth. Go Utes!
I was too immature. I would like to try it now again but then I did have a great time and treasure the friendships to this day.
Dwight's Latest Interactions
Happy Birthday Tim. Just "Reelin' in the years; stowin away the time.." But you do it so well. Keep up the good life!! Thanks for your firendship.
I didn't want to see this but I felt it wa coming. We shared some time at the Olympus High School reunion early last year and I could sense the problem with the lungs where taking it's toll; a toll we all must reconcile at some time. I just didn't want it for Roger now.
A wonderful friend and enjoyable to be with. He always had an easy smile and I honestly don't think he had an enemy or anyone who didn, t like "Tay".
Roger; we'll see you at the next real reunion!
Happy Birthday Ron! Good to get together at the last reunion and enjoyed everyones company. Hope to see you again soon.
HBD Jim. Look forward to seeing you this year sometime. Don't know where or when but look forward to it anyway! Give Kris and Lisa my best.
Big Happy one for you. Hope all is well with that wonderful family!
Bill decided to remain at Olympus High rather than pioneer the vast, untamed, and tempting first year of Skyline High School. I am grateful he did as I enjoyed his friendship and more than a few double dates in his awesome new silver GTO convertible.
Bill's dad, Horman Construction, built the Cottonwood Mall, which I believe was one of the first of it's kind in the U.S. Consequently Bill lived in a nice home above the boulevard and would be the first to show my friends and I something new in technology or inventions. I recall I was blown away when we went to his home for a light dinner with dates and he demonstrated the first micowave oven I had ever seen; five minutes and dinner was cooked!
With all his affluence, Bill was a down to earth kind of guy eveybody like and enjoyed being around. I would have loved to see him at the upcoming Oly-Sky reunions. Guess we'll just have to wait!
Welcome to the group Gary. Happy you joined and hope you can make it to the mini reunion August 6th.
