Hi, I just wanted to let you all know that I'm sorry for my recent lack of comments lately.
As you know, if you read my last journal I had to have a kidney removed on March 19th. I had been out of the hospital and doing well, then last Friday, March 27th I decided to have some toast with strawberry jam. This turned out to be a costly mistake.
The toast was rather dry and some crumbs from it caught in my throat. That caused me to let out a very hard cough. This in turn caused my upper sutures to burst. A tearing sensation shot through my belly. I didn't have time to hold my stomach as I was caught totally off guard. I tried to tell myself that what I felt was probably wrong. I hoped it was. Since I was scheduled to have my staples removed that day I went ahead and saw the doctor. He told me what had happened and they rushed me into emergency surgery that night.
The pain from the second surgery is very intense, at least twice what it was the fist time, but it was repaired and is mending. I am extremely weak and feeble right now, this has been very hard on me but I've been resting at home and just getting around since last night.
At any rate if I don't seem to be around much or leaving a lot of comments I apologize. It may be a while before I have the energy to be here a lot.
Take care my friends! Larry
