bobmc Posted June 3, 2004 Share Posted June 3, 2004 Hey all, Having a time of it, In March, I found myself in a Costa rican hospital unable to swallow, could'nt eat or drink, got back to the states and was in the hospital for the next 15 days. The tumor in my chest has been wreaking some havoc. It's closed off the esphoughages (sp) and theres a hole ( fistula) sp? that allows fluid to enter my only good lung. I'm presently hooked to a machine to get the nourshment I need, It Really sucks, I could use a good Texas steak. The plan is to reduce the tumor with chemo, and insert a sleeve so I can eat again. Be a few more weeks. The whole thing has had me pretty depressed and I really do thank you all for the cards and letters and Fay for the chickens. God bless and be well Bobmc left pneumonectomy 5/2/01, brain mets, 12/18/03, WBR, 2/04 chemo- 5/1 for mediastinum tumor " absolutely insist on enjoying life today" Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
