Old timers here..., if you have exchanged personally in the past, and still have his contact info (phone or email) - make Barry's day by sending him a note or calling him. He's confined for the holidays.  Brighten up his day with a personal touch!

Just a note for those who may not know Barry personally.

 

Barry is a man who has faced much trauma in his life. Decades ago Barry was crushed by a large forklift that killed him. He actually died twice and was revived. That experience of dying left him with no real fear of death.  If anyone can survive this cancer, its Barry. He has been giving updates almost daily and remains in good spirits. There is always some upside to what we perceive as negative, even death. Something to be learned from knowing Barry. How often do you meet someone who has been there, and came back.  Keep the meat suit running BG.

Barry is on his way to becoming a $6M Dollar Man.  Friday Barry gets some titanium parts installed.

 

Keep the faith Carver brethren, Like @Ar9Jim noted above, Barry has earned it.

Barry checked in last night. He is having surgery today. He just received word that his oldest daughter passed away at 41.. She had MS and had been sick with covid for weeks. My son died at 24. Surgery in that frame of mind. Hold on BG, it can get better. Whatever force you pray to, please forward some good energy Barry's way.

Keep Barry in your thoughts and prayers.  He' rolling into surgery in about 25 minutes. 

 

Operating room time is 12:45 PM, EST.

 

I don't know if/how we'll hear how it went, until he gets through recovery, and can use his phone to tell anyone.  Could be a day or more.

Update!

my multiple myeloma is pretty bad and now has metastasize to my bones. Since I can’t type, I’m using voice to text so this may mess up about two weeks ago. I had a 10 mm titanium rod, inserted into my femur to strengthen it as my cancer had eaten a hole in my femur and we can get to a point that if I put weight on it it would have fractured. I am recovering well too from that surgery will receive more radiation on that leg.
 

While in physical therapy center where I was staying while putting on a gown shirt, basically putting my arms through the sleeves we heard a loud pop, and I have a small fracture in my clavicle at my shoulder joints that’s from the myeloma home there’s also myeloma lesions inside my shoulder joint and there’s several tears in my rotator cuff, which is my current issue, I’m hanging in there I wanted to go home.

 

I have not been home in months however I got my iPhone and I’ve got Amazon music unlimited and my sound core liberty three earbuds so I’m pretty happy listening to music. I am getting good care but I really want to go home. I thank everybody for your prayers , I also thank everybody who has donated to my go fund me to help with my expenses and I thank everyone who has donated to Amanda‘s go fund me to help my family pay for her burial. I have not seen my daughter Amanda in a couple years actually it the last time I went to Carver fest.  C97C2DD1-8BE3-4EA0-BD97-5B88AACEDD82.thumb.png.cb7c29a66cf0c1ae69799da0aa9afaec.png
