Hi gang, I hope I can keep this short and share my news. Had lung surgery Dec 21st, got all the cancer removed; was told no chemo or radiation needed; developed an air leak post-op that kept me in the hospital until Jan 11th when surgeon went in again; found I had coughed really hard in the ICU and ripped internal stitches loose and tore a hole in the lung…got that all fixed and sealed…discharged home Jan 17th…developed a paralyzed intestine as a result of all the medications and narcotics in the hospital and was re-admitted Jan 20th…got home again yesterday. Still feeling puny and have a 26 cm incision in my back with a boat-load of staples that won’t be removed until this coming Thursday. Should feel lots better after staple removal. Hope to be out in the shop once the weather warms in a month or two. Thanks to all who sent prayers they helped are are greatly appreciated.
