    Sorry I've been mia for a few days.

    Had a few bad days. This afternoon was better. Hope it continues to improve. I still have a few issues to resolve. Hopefully things will continue to improve. Looks like we'll have a few more days here. I've just today felt well enough to sit up and text.

      You have had such a rough time. I don't think any of us expected to hear from you today, so this is a bonus for us! I hope you rest and get stronger with each passing hour. And feel better too. Thank you for touching base with us.

      now we are down to waiting for my bowels to start working again and me being able to tolerate tube feeding and then can go home. It was a major surgery to put in the feeding tube because of all of the scar tissue. That wasn't expected.

      And give yourself the okay to be mia. Bodies need a time out once in awhile to concentrate on getting better. Your cheering squad has been busy! Hugs!

      Waiting for those bowles to start working again is probably an extra challenge since you've not been able to eat or drink for so long. We are all so sorry to know of your trials and tribulations.

      Yay! I’m so glad you’re out of the hospital and back home. I bet that your dogs are also so happy. I hope that you and Donna can relax and can sleep well (no disruptive hospital routines to awaken you).

      So glad you're home! It must feel wonderful. And, what an ordeal.

      Now it's time to regain some strength (not to mention weight) and get ready for another round of treatment. This time you'll be really ready, hydrated and all!

      My best to you and your wonderful wife for a lovely weekend.

      KP, the weight thing is tops right now. I lost another 5# while in the hospital. Now at home I'm back on tube feeding schedule and monitoring my intake. I just finished my first one. I'm down to 184# from my top of 225 before the last diagnosis.
