Hey folks, I'm not much of a CU'er these days, but I do know AA from another forum. Just wanted to drop a line and let you know that the Ape has been hospitalized over the past week or two, and has been in CCU most of the time. He was very, very ill for a little while, and was "touch and go".

He appears to be making some recovery. Please keep him and his very worried family in your thoughts.

Thanks,

Cthulhu.

Poor Ape, have heard how painful it is. So glad he's improving and thanks so much for letting us know. We were wondering when he hadn't posted, but assumed that maybe he was on vacation. Some vacation.

Prayers coming for your speedy recovery and looking forward to seeing you on the board soon.

I have been out of town, without a pc. Sadly, the update is not positive. His condition has been downgraded to "grave". He has been moved to a new hospital, and they keep removing the bad parts. He is missing a pancreas, and quite a bit of intestine. His wife is hoping for a sufficient period of lucidity that she may find out if he wishes to continue treatment.

Please keep the Ape in your thoughts.

Thanks so much for the update, Creeping Death, but not the one that we wanted to hear. If you can get a message to the family, please tell them how concerned that we are. SR and I talked to him many times on Skype and considered him a good friend. He was very kind and supportive through SR's medical problems last year (mine, too). We're in a state of shock as he had said that he wasn't feeling well once in a while, but never indicated that it was anything serious. It's tough to think that two relatively young men, both in their early 50's (SR and Ape are about the same age) had come up with such medical problems.

He used to kid me all the time about banning him. That's one of my biggest regrets, a stupid mistake. He's a good man and hope that he beats this thing. Maybe it's a good thing that they're moving him to another hospital, hopefully one with more expertise. But you'd think in the NY/NJ area they'd have excellent hospitals. I know he's a fighter and will beat this thing.

A question about creeping death's post... how do you go on without a pancreas?



To live without a pancreas, patients must take pancreatic-enzyme supplements to be able to eat and insulin to regulate blood-sugar levels. These medications must be taken as prescribed---and for the rest of the lives of those without a pancreas.

Surprised me. I didn't think anyone could live without a pancreas. But seeing as they can, it makes me wonder why pancreatic cancer is so deadly.
Seems like it would be treated like certain forms of prostate cancer in that once it has been diagnosed then out it comes.
Pancreatitis is another thing, and if I understand properly, poisons the entire body by sending digestive juices everywhere.

Medical science is truly amazing. We are lucky to know The Ape, and he is lucky to be an American.

Grab Ahold, Ape!.......we'll all pull together!:smile-new:

A question about creeping death's post... how do you go on without a pancreas?

My mom had a friend who was born without a pancreas. She didn't live the long life most of us do, but she did live well into her 60s, and had a couple of kids. She was treated as an extremely brittle diabetic, and was receiving insulin shots since her initial diagnosis as an infant.

Unfortunately, her body began to break down the way diabetics bodies tend to do, she just started that process earlier than most diabetics. In her case, it was her vision and her kidneys that went first, and she underwent dialysis. Eventually that didn't work.

But that was a while ago, and medical science always seems to be making progress. Ape hasn't lived his entire life without a pancreas, so hopefully the damage to other organs is minimal.

Looks like Ape has been upgraded to "cautious optimism" after his most recent bout of surgery. He should be moving out of the CCU next week, and begin a few months of recovery, and learning how to take care of himself with a changed medical condition.

If his family gives permission to the fellow I get my news from, I'll make sure an address is forwarded along for well wishers to drop cards and the like.

And you are the one who taught me the meaning of what the word "leet" meant ... and at the moment can't remember how to do it ... RATS!!!

Will simply have to resort to plain old English in here!

Get your ass back in here, please, and simply say "Hi guys!

I'm not sure he can eat, it may be banana suppositories?http://www.desismileys.com/smileys/desismileys_6595.gif (http://www.desismileys.com/)

Hey AA ...

Still praying for you pumpkin, and especially for you to be able to leave that hospital and be back with your family again soon!

Behave yourself, stop flirting with the nurses, and concentrate on learning to walk again. :smile-new:

Sincere Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happier & Healthier 2013!!!

I just want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for the very kind thoughts and words you expressed in this thread during my health-related ordeal. It means a great deal to me to know that I have such friends here. Thank you all so very much.

Sure. I am almost done with rehab having amazed one and all here with my rapid progress. I can now walk with a cane, climb stairs, etc. I will be heading home sometime within the next week or so. I am very excited about that. It will be wonderful to have some normalcy to my life. I am certain that the thoughts and prayers of you good folks and a ton of others played a large part of the outcome of this very harrowing experience. I appreciate the kindness you all have extended toward me.

Heh.
Hope you can get home physical therapy. In Oct '11 when I had my knee surgery, I was in a rehab place for a week. I did much better when I got out of that place (a week early) and had the PT at home for a while.

You're making such wonderful progress. Those are real achievements, being able to go up stairs and to only use a cane. You are indeed the miracle man. I'm sure everyone realizes what toughness and inner strength it take for Ape to overcome those odds. He's one tough Ape.

Happy Days Are Here Again
The skies above are clear again
So let's sing a song of cheer again
Happy Days Are Here Again

Altogether shout it now
There's no one
Who can doubt it now
So let's tell the world about it now
Happy Days Are Here Again!
