    I never could sleep in a hospital. Just about the time I drop off they wake me up to draw blood, or take my BP, or some IV alarm starts going off because whatever they are pumping into me ran out. I am SO glad when they let me out and I can sleep in my own bed. I will sleep all night and a good chunk of the morning the first day.

  3. Yep! That's exactly what it was, so loud, it's hard to sleep

  4. After a second night, we have brought him home, looks better but will be here for at least the rest of the week before returning to work, and then follow up appointments.

  6. This is scary. Latest update on my dad. Surgeon wanted to see dad sooner than next week. He found a small amount of cancer when he took out his appendix. He feels almost 100% certain that he got it all out. He's checking with an oncologist to be sure what to do. He might reopen where he went in and take out anything if it's there, which might mean removing some of the large intestine. We should know more by this afternoon.

  7. Keeping my toes crossed for your dad, Sam.

    If you'd like a positive spin on it, and speaking as someone who's living just fine with only half a large intestine, if the surgeon needs to go in and remove some to make sure any and all be happy. Because getting any out now means your dad will have a longer, healthier life.

    Fingers crossed and prayers sent.
    Having part of your large intestine removed is not a big deal.
    My mother in law had part of hers removed due to cancer a few years back and it dodn't change a thing. She's still an insufferable banshee.

    He'll be ok partner. If, If it's cancer it sounds like it was caught early, that's good. Appendaceal cancer isn't very common. Check out this link:
    Now it's just some info on the internet, although very informative, no 2 cases are the same. So I'd listen to the surgeon for advice and not the internet. But God willing it won't get that far!
