    Update on Peroll: His surgery went well although much longer than expected--5.5 hours. They removed his right adrenal gland . . .

    and the ever growing cancer in it. The surgery was robotic and all is good. Last night he was in a lot of pain, and today he is feeling better and able to eat, in fact he is eating a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup as I type. Earlier they were talking of reinserting the cathater, but he managed to force down some diet coke and has since been able to pee, although his bladder is still full and they are still suggesting a cathater to him, which he really does not want. He is spending most of the time sleeping, unless the nurse in here trying to get him to pee, checking his bladder, get up to walk, and to eat something. I have no idea when he will be released to come home, but I will keep you updated on him until he feels up to playing on his tablet.

    PS He has not had pizza yet, but grilled cheese and tomato soup sort of fall into that category of food :)

      I got a gluten free pizza for dinner after my colon surgery in Hospital that was shrunk wrapped in plastic on cardboard. Not pretty or tasty! Suggest he wait till he gets out of the hospital.

      I wonder if one can arrange a delivery of the real thing?

      Glad to hear he is recovering.

      That's the kind of news we love to hear. Tell him we are all with him and let us know when back home. We appreciate your update on him.

      Take care of yourself too, those hospital chairs get awfully hard after awhile, so my wife tells me.

      Thanks again

      Wow! I didn't eat my first solids until almost a week after my surgery! Good for him! Encourage him to walk several times a day and upright as best as possible. Will help with his recovery. Good luck and we're all sending him a virtual pizza!

      Last evening as I thought of your question I decided to dress up as the first bag of chemo. That was one of the scariest things I could think of. I will pretend I am light sensitive so I can use a dark garbage bag and old oxygen tubing in place of IV tubing.
      I did consider dressing up as a cancer cell, but decided that I would get killed walking into the chemo administration bay.
