I apologize for the silence.
My admission for the surgery was about four days longer than expected. I was finally discharged and was home for a few days; that is when I wrote the previous blog post.
Shortly thereafter my stoma decided to get blocked. Spasms, swelling or whatever in my small intestine due to surgery and caused everything to back up. Needless to say, I went downhill fairly quickly. The surgeon called and had me readmitted to the hospital.
That was a tougher stay in some ways. I really hit rock bottom as they say mentally if not physically.
After close to a week I came back home, again. Things seem to be working (at least between my mouth and my stoma) and I am trying to get back to life. For a while at least.
I will fill in the gaps as I now get ready for some heavy duty chemo in two weeks.
