Topic: Hi Honey, I'm BAACK!
Arrived home yesterday and it was the worst day I have had yet. Pain kicked in that was unbelievable. I now have that under control and pray it stays that way. Forgive my spelling but the Percoset is amazing. I will slowly have to play some catch-up here for a few days but am writing to "my family" before even sending out a e mails to friends and etc. That is how much I missed you.
A SPECIAL thank you to our special Marion for keeping you all posted and Teddy always made sure I knew that his "girlfriend" had called.
So far as I know this was the final report...the "new" tumor that was found with my colonoscopy the day before surgery was benign as well as all lymph nodes. I was resected where the colon and intestine meet. I think they meet there on Friday nights for drinks after work. Robin (daughter) said they removed about 5 inches, not enough for a tummy tuck.
The original "mass" was a low grade cancer and all of that was also removed successfully. I have to make an appointment today for 10 days from now and will know more how we are to proceed. Thank God I did the colonoscopy before surgery or they would not have found the new tumor and would have had to have a second surgery. It interesting that the Doctor went through my old hysterectomy scar and then about 3 inches higher. Scar looks better than ever! No stitches, that Elmer's glue is a miracle.
One of the best things I did was not talk on the phone and no visitors. In fact I will not see anyone until tomorrow. Everyone has kindly respected my wishes. Hope you can make out some sense of my ramblings, its am here, but I just wanted to say Hi!
Kris: Hope you are doing better than when I went on my vacation!
Louise: Sorry to hear about the Merry Go Round ride you are having.
Next, we have an appointment with Teddy's RadMan on the 23rd to see how we will proceed with his "new" spot. My poor little boy sure has had a lot on his plate. On the 27th is his 77th birthday and he also will be a 4 year 3 month survivor of a Whipple. Know what? Its good to be back!
