    I have just seen a concerning tweet from Janet to say she is in hospital. :(

    Janet, I wish you a very speedy recovery from your surgery and I hope it is totally successful!

    All with very best wishes to you and your family!:hug:

    I don't think I've ever seen anybody express such enthusiasm for a partial nephrectomy--what a remarkable lady! Thank goodness the surgery went well. We're all sending good thoughts your way, @Janet Dafoe (Rose49) !

    @Countrygirl, thanks so much for the update on how Janet is doing after her surgery.

    She talked about how she was diagnosed at the 2018 #MillionsMissing rally in San Francisco recently. OMF has posted a video of her inspirational talk here:

    East Coast (US) patients send Janet many, many wishes for a speedy recovery!:balloons::balloons::balloons:

    Hey guys,

    Just to let you know I just spoke to Janet via facetime and she is in recovery, doing ok, and perusing the hospital menu, which looks damn delicious :)

    The surgery went well, which is great, though she is in pain but I think is only on Tylenol, the trooper that she is.

    Just wanted to update the thread. Thing which gets me is throughout all this, the night before, morning before surgery and after the surgery she has been engaging in her usual advocacy, twitter etc. Wonder woman eh.

    The chocolate chip pancakes if they have them. Those were good.
    I think the usual advocacy also takes our minds off of having cancer which I find is much more emotionally and mentally difficult than living with severe bedridden ME/CFS.
