Rectal ultrasound

Wednesday, August 27th. Just got back from my ultrasound. Drugs are good :) Didn't feel a thing.

The tumor does go into the walls of the rectum. It is a T3. But, he found no evidence of it being in my lymph nodes. That is a VERY good thing. Now just have to wait and see what the results of the liver biopsy are. After that we will sit down with my surgeon and decide on the course of treatment.

There will be surgery, chemo and radiation. Just when and in what order will be the question. Praying will be able to put it all off until the 22nd of September after we get back from Paris and London.

Will let you all know...


  1. Hi Millie,
    You are in my thoughts and prayers girlfriend. I began my whirlwind of testing for breast cancer a year ago in July and have gone through chemo, surgery and radiation. Now "mopping up" from all the side effects everything caused. I'm looking forward to the day the fatigue goes away! I have learned of a great Cancer Wellness Retreat Center in Tryon, NC. You go up on Thursday afternoon and stay until Sunday - and it's free to cancer patients. You can go to to find out more. I'm going the end of September and looking forward to talking with others who have been through the same as I have. Please let me know if there's anything I can do to help.
    Much love,
    Laurel Jones
