Hi all--I have some great news--and to be truthfull I was pretty down yesterday with more tests today--lost a lot of sleep worrying last night--BUT
All is as well as can be expected--in fact better.
My surgeon told me today that I only have to have a colonoscopy every 3 years!
However, as my cancer went thru the bowel wall blood vessels/ lymph vessels were compramized and I must have ultrasounds/blood tests every 2-3 months to check for any secondaries-paying particular att. to my liver.There were no lymph nodes positive.
So as you can imagine I came out of the clinic much relieved.
I couldn't wait to get on the phone to tell Jen(I was 100 ks away).She has been so great to have by my side and I cried on the phone just telling her.I love her so much and she has had to go thru so much fear and sadness thru all this and yet still keep strong for me and the kids.
All of you carers here are a strenght to all of us and I thank you for being there for us and your partners.
We may have the cancer but you guys have the guts and determination to bare the anguish with us--you are all truly "angels".
I know that there are many here that are having a harder time than I have had--but Jen and I send you all our love and thanks for your support.
Geez--a mere male full of happiness but also stricken with sadness for those not so fortunate.
our prayers are with you one and all!!!!!!!
