I think maybe after tomorrow, he may feel well enough that I can bring his laptop up for him to use.  I hope so.

He knows that you are all thinking about him.  Ill get an address and such for the hospital, just PM me if you would like to have it.  My wife was with him for a few hours today, but he mostly slept.  After classes I came up, and he looked better than yesterday.

Was this acute pancreatitis? Has he had this before? What was the cause, has he got gallstones?

Is he considered to be improving and hence on a homeward trajectory?

Meanwhile, please send Jim my very best wishes,

Well JimBob, you told those idiot Doctors that you were ill! It is a shame you had to get so bad before they believed you. I hope when you feel a bit better you have acute nurse to go with your pancreas.

Venality abounds as usual without my stern hand..  Class is now in session.

I am not longer swilling in a vat of my own digestive juices (look up pancreatisis)and have progressed to a feeding tube and soft diet. But DO NOT ever get this ca-ca - the PAIN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  not to mention projectile vomiting, etc. will make an honest person out of you..

I WANT TO THANK ALL OT YOU FOR YOUR WELL WISHES - THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART.

JimBob, whew! Glad you're back! Geezer temporarily took over your 3 services ("custom hand", "bit behind", and "discount") and rapidly became confused about how to handle the different parts! But now I'm sure you will straighten out this matter! Thank you.

Nice to see you back JimBob.

I trust you are over your troubles and ready to get on with the business in hand.

I'm most pleased to hear that the projectile vomiting has ceased. That must have been awful! The less said about that the better ........ Thanks for the demonstration, but it really wasn't necessary......

REPORT:

Once the pancrratic enzymes return to normal the fun is just beginning. THIS is when to real fecesmee6ts the fan. You can't eat, sleep, have a restricted diet. I feel almost as bad as  I did last Sat.

But the nurses who cater to my EVERY wish add quite a bit to feeling poorly.

I may be released by doctor tomorrow. Then I will be able to get some strength back. There is no help for that condition here. All the staff does in give pills and clean up feces. Anything extra is not part of what they feel is their job description.

Consider yourselves lucky, here the Public Service doctors and staff are on strike ( for more money of course) so if you are sick and unable to afford private care you are pretty much fending for yourself.
