Hi J's Mom,
Thanks for thinking of me. I'm doing ok! Haven't had a blockage in weeks. Looks like that one-week long blockage-after-blockage wasn't permanent. Right now the plan is to wait for the next one (which I'm sure will happen), and then go get a CT scan while its happening. Then my dr said I can put the tube in. Then he will come up with a plan for surgery. In the meantime I'm going to the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL,on April 20 to get a second opinion. I will keep you all posted.
