I posted this on the Colo/Rectal Board, but had to share with my fellow caregivers:
This is just a morsel of good news, but I feel like maybe we reached the top of the mountain today and are beginning to roll down. I know, you are all saying, what is she blabbering about?
Surgeons visit today was great. He fired me from packing DH's rear end. I'v packed it twice a day for 119 days, for a total of 238 packs. I know that doesn't sound like much, but I am so very glad that little morsel is over. He also said every thing was very good looking, that he was happy that things will get back to normal. Of course, he corrected himself and said "at least the new normal."
We still have some hurdles to jump and he is still in chemo, but after his visit with onco last week, we feel really good about his progress.
Thanks to all my new friends for seeing me this far along, and I count on you to hold my hand the rest of the way.
