    Thumbs down You all are the wind under my skirt!

    Hi gang,
    Went into surgery earlier than expected due to bleeding into stomach (its absolutely horrifying to throw up blood). So I went in on June 12th for six hours of surgery, and some really great morphine drip afterward. Since they used scopes and lasers for the surgery, it greatly cut down on recovery time. Came home on the 15th. Undergoing targeted radiation therapy to kill any seed cells in vicinity of tumor that was removed. No evidence that the cancer got into the lymph system or traveled through the blood stream. I'm already able to swallow softened solid food (all smooshed up). Wife finally let me get on here to snoop a little (I pulled out the old "but it's Father's Day" excuse).

    RamFan16: Thanks for the chat and music just before I went in.
    UtterBlitz: Looks like your wingman is going to be busy at the bash!
    RamDez: Thanks for...well...everything. Got the Alexa thing hooked up for ya.

    And for all of the rest of you that wished me luck and gave me words of encouragement, it really helped and it got me through a very scary part of my life.

    Things have moved very quickly for you Bigredman.

    I am glad to hear that the doctors seem to have the situation under control, and that you are eating that smooshed up food. Please rest and concentrate on getting better.

    BRM,

    I am glad to hear that you are up and around.

    Speaking of your skirt, if you have my luck, the hair fell out of my legs instead of my head when I was getting radiation. Smooth legs, a skirt...maybe you can accessorize with some matching heels? LOL

    Hang in there, man. I look forward to meeting you at the bash.
