      We are glad that you were able to get through it for the better Russ! Any surgery is tough to recover from, but I remember the abdominal surgery I had in 88 and I think it was one of the hardest to recover from.

      Hi Russ. It is so great to see that you are feeling up to posting. It was so sweet of your daughter to keep us updated. I am glad that they were able to remove your cancer with surgery. My father had half of his stomach removed in the mid-80's and lived another 25 years. You beat the odds before, and you can do this again. Let us know how things are going, and if we can be of any help. You are always in my prayers. Take care.
