Just got back from my follow up appt with surgeon, and we both agree I am doing great. Feeling good, moving well, down 5 whole pounds…all staples gone, jp tubes out. I am happy and think I will take myself home this weekend. Still have to be careful lifting and bending, but that is to be expected when I am still barely 2 weeks from surgery. Best of all, pain is minimal,although I do feel it a little more at the end of the day, or when I have pushed a little too much. Just taking a shower can be very tiring. Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts and prayers and support. I'll tell you all about the diabetes issue later, when I get it figured out.

Hi Sue,
So glad all has gone so well. I'm so sorry this is late in coming but
I just got home from the hospital myself. I was put in with pneumonia and then they found I had a UTI that the bacteria had broke
through into my blood stream and I became septic. I was there for 9 days. I told you all would be good. I just felt that way. May the Lord
Bless and keep you.

Glad to see you back, Val. James had told us you were ill and you were in my thoughts. Are you on the mend still or all clear?

Hi Sue,
I am on the mend now. The UTI came back. We
just sent in another urine sample this evening. I'll
know more tomorrow. Did blood work to just to make sure the sepsis hasn't returned as well. How are you feeling? Fine as frog hair split 5 ways. I.
Pray. Let meknow how your doing, okay…

Glad you're doing well and not too much pain. I hope you will continue to be happy with results. Be patient with yourself as you allow your body time to heal.

So glad to hear all is going well. Keep that up! Sorry about any diabetes issues...I hope they are not serious.

More puzzling than anything. Probably need to set an appt with my primary to discuss adjustments to med. My numbers were way better than I expected after surgery and continue to be now.

That is a good thing! Maybe the stress and the issues leading up to your surgery were bugging your levels?
