Everything is healing well. Actually I'm glad that the belly button is gone, because it kid of interfered with the edge of my stoma bad.   Today the drain came out, next Friday the staples and I hope the following week I can start the chemo.

Again, overall everything is ok, I'm doing better every day.

I hope you are all doing well,

Laz

We are sending our thoughts and prayers for a healthy recovery, Laz!   We are glad you are OK!

 

After my last surgery, the srugeon came in and asked me, "How I was doing?"  He has six interns in tow. I told him I was a little disappointed.  They all looked shocked standing behind him.  I then said, "I thought you promissed me six pack abs!  What happened?"  The room burst into laghter. 

 

Keep up the good fight!  Keep up the positive attitude, thanks for being a positive influence.

Best Always, mike

Thanks for the update and glad that you are feeling better.  You either end up with a belly button or not in these surgeries.  I'm fortunate that every surgery he went around and then up.  Hope you are feeling better every day.

Laz, I didn't know that was even a thing, wow!  No more belly button, I guess you have something in commen with the original Adam (Adam and Eve) ...at least you wont have to clean the lint out of there anymore.

She always laughed at me when I did that And wondered how come she doesn't have any lint. So we solved the puzzle. My stomach is hairy and hers is bare. The hair that creates the lint from inside the clothes.
