    her belly.

    Hang in there!
    Pain is gone now! They pulled out the chest tube today, and the pain disappeared literally instantaneously. It wasn’t the abdomen that was really bothering me, it was that dang drainage tube. I still have two other tubes, one in my abdomen and one in my stomach, but neither causes me any issues. There’s a decent chance I could be discharged tomorrow, so I’m going to want all the drugs out of my system for then.

    Dave,

    I didn't realize you were still in the hospital. Good to hear that you might be going home today.

    What will you do regarding the weights? Will you start with a huge decrease in lbs and then linearly progress until you're close enough to resume your old program?

    Unfortunately I’m not discharged yet. The sutures and incisions are healing nicely, very little pain remains from those. My digestive system is taking longer to recover, and I’m dealing with some painful blockages. In a way I feel like I started eating solid food too soon. The doctor disagrees, tells me not to worry, and that these kinds of delays are common. Still damned uncomfortable, though. I’m out walking every day, climbing up and down the hospital stairs, but I’m still wearing that stupid gown, still trailing a couple of tubes, and still on the tired and grumpy side. Hopefully I’ll be perked up in a couple of days.

    Once I start lifting again it will certainly be a huge decrease in the weights. I’m also going to go on a linear progression, but I’m thinking not like before. I’d like to incorporate rest-pause and myo-rep-like approaches far more comprehensively than I have before. I’ve been very impressed with how they’ve made my muscles feel so far, although I admit I haven’t really been systematic enough with them to know if they’ll support a linear progression program. It will be a good time to experiment, though.

    Sorry it is taking longer than expected but then, better to be there and have the care than to go home and then have to go back to the ER. Take it all in stride, the weights are not going any where.

    When I run Rest Pause, I use more of a "rep goal" system rather than a numbers based progression. Each week I either add weight or add reps. When my total reps exceed my "rep goal" I add weight the next session. Depending on the exercise, I am adding weight regularly.

    Thanks, Dave. You know I will!

    Got back home last night, 16 days older and 11 pounds lighter than when I left. Still have a raft of medications to take daily for the next couple of weeks, but they're easy enough. I really am feeling better every day, although I'll probably lose a little more weight before my digestive system gets back to fully normal.

    Drs. prognosis is good, it's definitely unrelated to the previous throat cancer and has no long-term implications regarding my overall cancer susceptibility. This was just a rare, random one-off, and of those who do get this particular disease, mine was in the lower tier for malignancy and aggressiveness. I'd apparently been carrying it for a long time without knowing it, although it's secreted as a mucinous gel, some of mine had caked up in spots, and elsewhere had formed hard rinds along the base of my diaphram and my spleen. Fortunately my other organs were spared. The odds of it returning are pretty low.

    Still in a bit of pain, I'm bruised internally where the doctor's spreaders were clamped, but the incisions feel pretty good. Just mild pain killers right now. My hardest task is eating, I can only get in small quantities at a time, but that should be improving over the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, lots of naps!

    And when the time comes, I'll start a new journal here and I'll be hitting it as hard as I ever did. I am SOooooo looking forward to that!

    It'll get better. I mean, it'll get worse eventually, sooner or later it does for everyone, but that's not yet. Once this heals, it just means I'm carrying around less unnecessary junk that didn't need to be there, and it will be longer still before the real problems start.
