Well, it's milk. Being the smartypants that he is--while I was gone, Layne decided to have not one but TWO glasses of milk instead of introducing it slowly as he was told to do by the docs.

And he spent last night in the bathroom. :) Dumping.

He has promised to be good henceforth.

Doing well, drainage on the incision easing, he is less sore each day, and is hoping to start getting back in the loop on work by the end of the week. (Just a couple of hours a day...more guiding than doing, to keep him mind from turning to mush.)

Yesterday we went to Whole Foods and Walmart, and he did very well. It was cold here, so it gave him somewhere to do his walk. I have to get a new treadmill for him if this continues, as he really is not going to be able to walk in the winter because he now feels cold. (He NEVER was cold before, even in the dead of winter, wore only a flannel shirt or something similar.)

I am amazed how good he is feeling. I hope that his case gives hope to those who wonder how the surgery will affect their life. Well, it's surgery, so it is no fun, but he is enjoying his recovery time, spending time with me and the boys--laughing and being together!

Hi Betty,

First of all I am so happy that Layne is doing so well, as you know we had our little set back with the pneumonia.. Al is doing fine now and is eating pretty good. He hasn't had a problem with milk products at all at least not yet and hopefully not ever he loves milk.

In regards to Layne being cold so is Al it is still left over from the chemo at least thats
what the told me. His feet especially are cold all the time.

I gave Al his list of foods that he can and can not have and told him what would happen if
he didn't follow it and if he doesn't then he will have to deal with what happens when you dont follow the rules.

I thing Layne has learned his lesson.

God Bless
Kath

Betty,

Isn't it fun, when they spend the night in the bathroom when they don't listen to what the doc said, I too had to laugh as we have had several nights in the bathroom jeff takes the paper and its there until he finishes his dumping ha ha, glad he is so much better, I know in reality he will even get better, Jeff has had a few set backs but we will make it. Just know now you are a survivor of EC CANCER, be sure and help others, and like William said, they love candy, Jeff's taste buds sure has changed since surgery wants to eat pickles olives, and popcorn all the time, I always ask him when the BABY IS DUE, he just laughs I swear he is like a woman pregnant and craving pickles I had to go to our little convenience store the other night to just get him pickles I felt like he was pregnant, too funny, Jeff too is always cold, where before he complained it was too hot in the house, and now he keeps it warmer than I like.

BETTY, MUMPHY, WILLIAM, DONNA70, AND K_ANN AND OURSELFS have everything in common something to be thankful for this THANKSGIVING.

Keep in touch and watch the milk

William, just have to tell you Sandbridge was our favorite beach to go when we would visit our friends in Chesapeake. Loved flying our kites there.

Sandbrige sounds like a nice place to go next vacation season. Al should be fully recovered by then.
