Skiff Update ~ 22 OCT 2014

This past Friday, I had another procedure, similar to an endoscopy.. They went in and removed a 3 - 4" stent that was put in during the original surgery in April.


I guess it had moved from the original place, and has been moving around in my stomach... I felt instantly better (once back awake and kicking..) ... No more stomach pain, very little nausea, I can even eat pretty well..., better than since April.

Which is saying a lot, since for several months I couldn't eat or drink anything by mouth..., all fluids through a PICC line in my arm..

Thanks for all of the thoughts and prayers that have come my way..

    Great News John

    Wow did they find anything else in there that was left over; just joking, very glad to hear you are feeling a lot better. Now for the hole to heal and the fishing to begin, as always keeping you both in prayers

    wow, too bad it took them so long to figure that out but thank God they finally did.  Awesome to hear you ARE finally on the mend, John.  It's been a long time coming.
