The doc seems to be very pleased with my recovery progress. He took a chance and removed the stent (spelling?) in my left kidney; still have one on the right side. I provided a list of "discomfort and distress" items, but Dr. Dowling indicated that every one of them is a "normal" reaction in a radical surgery like I underwent. I am still a bit worried about my weight loss, but that need not be a concern according to the physician . . . Happy Birthday greetings are due this week for two former neighborhood residents. Lonnie Kerr will be 47 on Wednesday and Michael Billo turns 55 on Thursday . . .
