Hi all, I had my test today and it seems the tumor I have been working on killing outside my colon has started to grow through the wall at the original resection site. They are doing a biopsy to confirm the bleeding is from tumor but they are quite sure.

I will meet with my doctors next week to discuss another resection or not.

I am pretty ticked off right now along with many other emotions. I'm off to the lake for the weekend to think this through and to cuss a bit. This too shall pass and I will overcome it but right at this moment, it really sucks.

I hate it but also know you will attack it just like you have every other obstacle.

You know I am with you every step of your way and will be calling to check up on you next week.

Love bunches, Lisa P.

Yes, it really does suck, but I know you will get through this as you have everything else. I'm really sorry that your tests didn't turn out better. I'm sure that after your weekend at the lake, things will look better and you will be ready to do what you need to do to get past this. Keep us informed-----you're in my prayers.

I've been praying for you and your family and will continue.
Your news really is sucky. Read the book of Job and all of his trouble. He suffered through a lot of vile stuff, but ended up beating the devil. You will too.

That stinks! But you will beat this! I toasted you and all my semi-colon friends this weekend when I celebrated my 7 year colon cancer free anniversary with a Cuck Fancer cake. Now, on to beat this uterine cancer nonsense. Next year, I'll have to have two cakes. Stay strong!
