Still in the hospital folks.  Issues with low blood pressure after a lot longer surgery than expected - it was just under eight and a half hours. 

Things much improved today.

I expect to be home by the weekend though and will update when I can.

Still under detention in hospital...a few lingering minor issues to sort out yet, but winning these little battles one by one.

Preventing dehydration will be the key going forward...won稚 be allowed home unless I can function without a drip. 

Will update later in the week.

Good man BH. Things had been going so well to date, you were always going to get this minor blip. Important to keep focusing on these minor battles as you have pointed out.

Hope you get home comfort sooner rather than later
Hasta la victoria siempre

Part 3 Surgery arrived on schedule on August 5.  After a relatively smooth run of treatment from the beginning, this one hit me hard.

Initially I was expecting a 3-night hospital stay, but it turned into 15.  My body just would not kick-start itself again after the 8 and a half hour surgery.  We had to go step by step for each area and progress was quite slow.

Glad to report I got home on Thursday 20 August and am doing much better. 

In early October I値l return to the hospital to have the ileostomy surgery reversal and I知 hoping for a much shorter stay.

A major item within the surgery on 5 August was extensive pathology on both sites of my disease.  57 lymph nodes and several polyps were analyzed, as well as tissue from the sites.  All were negative.

I can now say, with a tear in my eye, a lump in my throat, but gladness in my heart, that I知 Cancer Free!

Brilliant stuff, to be where you are now after hearing the news for the first time is just incredible..

You have raised the awareness with these updates and certainly helped anyone that's dealing with it, I'm sure your outlook on life has changed also.

This disease can strike anybody at any stage of their life, the only way to have a chance with this is to see the signs, react early and give your body a chance.
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)
