I get admitted to hospital on Sunday afternoon and have my surgery 1st thing Monday morning. So I have a busy day or two ahead getting everything ready. 5-10 days in hospital recovery after surgery to remove part of my bowel and the cancer. Then a few months at least for full recovery.

Well, I got a nice book from Mrs HP for Valentine today : "raising chicken!" The book in itself is very nice, but the fact that SHE gave me the book signals her acceptance to having a backyard coop when we move back to Canada; a small victory for me!!!

Hi preeps,

Well it's been a coupla weeks since my surgery.. and it went amazingly well!
I had no issues with the anaesthetic, the op was a complete success they removed the cancer, re-attached the bowel and I am healing very well.

Came home after 10 days in, have all my staples out and eating a good healthy diet. Still a bit tender obviously but doing well.
Tests say i'm cancer free. just gotta keep positive.

Well, I've finally decided to purchase a solar panel set to use with my Duracell Powerpack. Bought a folding 100W with charge controller. When finances allow, I might add a deep cycle battery or 2 to the system for a bit of expansion. Hopefully, next house will be ours for a while, so I can look at permanently installing some solar and a battery bank.
