  • Round Two My Friends

    My apologies for no contacting anyone or posting but past Wednesday I have another attack in diverticulitis. My doctor admit me into ER a do have been in hospital since Wednesday I have a abcess on my colon above the diverticulitis. They drain 3 large baby syringes of fluid plus I have a drain implanted into my body. Once they find cure to kill Tis abcess the will kill it and wait a month and then remove portion of my colon with diverticulitis. So I be here for few weeks maybe months. Is aad but I want it over already. I am very tired and weak so is hard to type long but you all my family so I let you known how's Thomas. Have wonderful
    Day and I keep you post

    Just take it one day at a time, and don't let yourself get down about it. Everything passes, even the bad stuff.

                  You can do this man. I have a best friend and neighbor that had 18" of his colon removed 10 to 15 years ago. At 81 he still works like a mule landscaping his yard cutting cedar and hauling huge rocks.

                  So, like what was said above don't get down with this just get through it because there is plenty of good life hereafter.

                  Chin up.

                          Grazie my friends. Is very hard but I no give up. I lose most of my fat also most of my muscle is sad I look like bean pole. The worst part is I had my one and only ripe fig I wanted to eat from tree I get from hershell and I went in to hospital morning before I planned to eat it. So I hope I have many next year. You guys are all wonderful and my love to you ! I will post soon.
