Personal Best!

New "Official" Personal Best! Weighed in at 7lbs 7oz. Looked nearly 8lbs to me but I go by the scale

Such an amazing fight to this fish! Fan casted an area and finally found the spot!

Just Look at that Belly!

This fish gave me such a big headache as I am still recovering from the brain surgery.

Thank you random stranger for taking a picture of me with my fish! So here's a picture of you with my fish!

As a rule, you must ALWAYS practice catch and release on all bass; not because this lake requires you to, but because it's also the right thing to do!

Surgery went well guys!

Surgery went as planned. It's been just over a week since I had surgery and I am almost at 100%. The photo above is me and my beautiful GF waiting at admissions at 4:00am in the morning. She made this poster for everyone to sign and I love it. What was initially thought to be an enlarged pituitary gland ended up being a Rathke Cleft Cyst, which shows us exactly the same as an enlarged pituitary gland on an MRI and basically gives the same symptoms.

The only problems I have now are the fact that since they operated through my nose, I cannot breathe at all with my nose, which forces me to breathe through my mouth only causing severe dry throat. Occasionally the blood will go down my throat too, which hinders my sleep at night as I wake up every 30-45 minutes to either drink water or cough up blood. Doctor is not allowing me to go back to work OR school, which is the sad part since I planned on graduating with my B.S. this semester. Health is better anyways. I like to thank you all for your prayers and kind words. I cannot thank you guys enough for keeping me in your prayers.

Am I in Heaven? I awoke to an angel! ;D My GF is also a nursing student and this gave her an opportunity to take care of me during my 2 night stay at the hospital
Even my little brother came by and signed my poster. He goes to school at UCLA which is walking distance from UCLA Medical Center
Lastly, today I went fishing. I know I'm not supposed to but some rules had to be broken i.e. driving and activities that need you to bend down and lift. Maybe I should listen because sometimes I still feel sluggish.
