From: curmudgeon
Date: 02 Jul 05 - 01:33 PM

I just learned this morning that Barry Finn, our good friend and comrade-in-song, is in hospital beginning the recovery from a liver replacement. This is Barry's second such procedure. The first didn't take and while he's known for a while that it would have to be redone, he didn't know exactly when due to the waiting list for such organs. a worsening of his condition, however, put him at the head of the list.

Barry's wife, Justine, adds, "Second time around is
a little trickier, but you know Barry's spirit. "

I'll post snail mail for card senders when I find it. Meanwhile, post messages here, send good thoughts, et al, and sing a shanty for Barry -- Tom
    Barry's on his way to recovery now - Click here for the new thread.

Thanks so much, Tom, for letting us know. Barry's been with us so long and contributed so much and has such a STRONG spirit. I was just transferring addys from one old phonebook to a new one and noticed I still had the last hospital addy from Barry's first transplant.

Barry, I am grateful you went to the top of the list, but not that it took getting worse to get there! We love you and send an unending stream of good thoughts and thanks-givings for the best possible outcome for all concerned. The Mudcat has incredible powers for helping one another at such times, as you know. I've just experienced that, myself...coming up to my 8th week after aortic valve replacement and plenty of good energy from Mudcatters helped me through.

In Love and Peace Profound,

Kat & Rog

Jeez. He hasn't been looking that great lately, but I figured that was just Barry. I hope he got a perfect-for-him liver this time 'round, and goes on to heal perfectly too! Maybe he could have his people call John's people.

Much love to Barry and the Finn Family.

Barry's wife is expecting him to come back strong, according to her e-mail to me this morning. Who could hold Barry back? Certainly no force of nature thtat I'm familar with.

Yes, Barry was looking a little wane at the Mystic Sea Music Festival but certainly didn't hold back when he was leading songs. He's one of our best traditional style sea music singers and we owe him big time for his distinctive renditions of songs. He's also a damn fine fella.

I look forward to singing with him again this summer.

Wow, Barry will love all these posts. I will print them and bring them to the hospital as soon as he is more alert. He is really holding his own, getting stronger everyday. He hit the top of the transplant list on Tuesday at 4:00 pm, after a rapid decline over the weekend. At 9:00 pm on Tuesday, he got the call that a liver had become available. (If you knew Barry four years ago, you may remember he waited over a month at the top of the list for a match.) The surgery was long - 9 hours, then he had a follow up surgery on Friday that was another 4 hours. But now, he looks good, still heavily sedated to keep him resting, and on the road to recovery.   Thanks for all the nice comments, good wishes... Barry is lucky to know all of you. Justine

Barry, we'll be thinking of you now as you are getting through the second hardest part (the waiting is hardest, not?) I am SO glad a liver was found for you without a long wait. That should help you cope with the recovery. I have been praying all day that you will have a full, complication-free recovery this time and that the next 20 or 30 years will be the best ones of your life!

And, selfishly, that Bill and I will get to hear you sing again SOON.

Love ya Barry,

Went away for the weekend and just found this message. Barry from the start you've been one of my favorite Getaway people. Your music makes me just have to sing along. And after the close up's of your last scar, I figure I've got an interest in making sure you do this up right one more time and join us belting out a few more songs. Besides, someone has to keep that other Irishman in line.
