I come back from being AWOL and the next thing I know I'm in the hospital and unable to post.

I had some emergency surgery done on Thursday, came home late Friday and I'll have to go back in for more surgery either late next week or early the following week. "Probably" not cancer related - we'll see.

Anyway, just wanted to let y'all know if you don't see menext week I'll be spending some quality time with my budzos over at Bethesda Naval Hospital (soon to be known as "Walter Reid Medical Center" thanks to the BRAC)

Anyway, I'm doing OK - just a little sore and VERY annoyed with this bag and tube coming out of my tummy.

Sorry to hear about the emergency surgery, but happy they were able to take care of it. Wishing for you...a quick recovery from this surgery and next week's surgery. Glad to hear it's probably not cancer related, since that's always the first thought that goes through my mind. Keep us updated when you can.

Dear Bob. What happened to you? I hope you are alright. You have such a sense of humor. I liked your comment about being full of hot air. The Dr. said I looked like the Pillsbury dough Boy. I hope you have a speedy recovery and everthing is Okay. What tubes do you have in your stomach?? A Jackson Pratt? Sorry to be so personable.

Thanks so much for your positive energy, well wishes, and prayers, my dear friends! I seem to have a blockage of the other (non colon-related) system (if you know what I mean)caused by scar tissue run amok. The emergency surgery was to install a sort of "colostomy for the bladder". Next step is to image the obstruction and determine how big it is and then follow-up surgery will be to resection the pipes and cut out all of the scar tissue (yuck!).

BUT! The good news is that the bag-ola came in handy today twice:

1. I had a HUGE bottle of water just before I went in to see a movie and didn't have to worry about getting up to pee and missing anything

2. There were some parts of the movie (The 40 Year Old Virgin) that were so funny, I laughed so hard i would have surely peed my pants had I not had "le sac" avec mois!

3. Oh yes... did I mention the pain drugs??? Woo-Hoo!

Always a silver lining...

Thanks again you guys!

- SpongeBob

PS Scouty... "Le sac" is clear (I guess visualizing tinkle is more socially acceptable than visualizing poo? So if you have a pair of Cinderella Glass Slippers (in size 11 EEE) please send 'em my way!

Whoa, Bob, first AWOL, now emergency surgery. You need to settle down! Sorry to hear about the additional plumbing problems; I hope that all is ship shape soon, and you can get on with all the other stuff you have been contending with.
Enjoy the meds, and get well soon, Judy
