I made it to 63 years of age this morning. It has been a long and a hard ride, I was born during the night at age 7.5 months. That is not a big deal now but it was a big deal 63 years ago. The pediatricians in the hospital in Galveston told my mom and dad that I would not live to see daylight. One young intern just out of the University of Texas Medical School worked on me all night and saved my life. I've been beating impossible odds ever since.
