Greetings.

yesterday (7-26-12) my surgeon completed the colostomy bag take down, cut out the "dead tumor" from my colon. (the transverse colon, next to the liver).

so far, it appears to be a complete success.

Passing gas now, and they'll allow for me to eat food tomorrow.

so excited to have this surgery behind me.

begin "maintenance chemo" in six weeks.

I'm super pissed off at Cancer but I hope to have Cancer more pissed off at me... for kicking Cancers Butt!!!

cheers to you.

Hugs from Toledo

thanks for the positive notes today.
I truly appreciate your encouragement, and so happy to share good news with y'all.

Today is day 3 from the surgery...
I've had the colostomy bag since mid-December 2011. (8 months)

and today, i had to use Toilet paper for the first time in over 8 months.
it's working!!!

its amazing and I'm so happy with this day.

I still haven't had food, but hope to have some tomorrow.

I should be out of the hospital by Monday or Tuesday.

Hugs from Toledo
