Joe Haldeman Recovering from Surgery

Joe Haldeman is recovering from his ileostomy take-down surgery of February 17, 2011. The surgery was a laparoscopic procedure, designed to reconnect his intestines after a September 19, 2009 surgery for severe pancreatitis and twisted bowel. Gay Haldeman reports that “the surgery went well,” and that Joe is cracking jokes. As of February 21, Gay further reports, “They let Joe out of the ICU last night, into a regular room. He hurts some, but he’s walking up and down the hall between naps. The doc says he’s going to keep him one more night, just to be sure everything’s okay.”
