More surgery

I am having surgery on my colon on Tuesday, June 30th! I saw the surgeon this morning and he set everything up. I go tomorrow for all my pre-op blood work and stuff, on Sunday have to drink all the yummy stuff to clean out my colon, have a colonoscopy on Monday and Surgery on Tuesday. Which means no food after midnight on Saturday. :( I gonna starve to death!

The good news is the surgery is at a different hospital than the liver surgery was so I don't have to put up with the terrible nursing staff again! The only way they could be worse is if they didn't show up at all!

I'm so glad this was scheduled so fast. There are still some spots in the liver that will need to be addressed, but I won't see the liver surgeon again until the end of September. It will give my body some time to heal from the 2 surgeries before we start again.

I really appreciate all the cards all y'all have mailed me and all the prayers! Keep them coming!

I love you all!

LIver surgeon

CT scan was awesome! The tumors he ablated are dead and gone!!! God is good! wonderful! There are a couple tumors left, but he told me to begin with that was to be expected. Now I see the colon surgeon on Thursday and make arrangements to have the colon tumor removed. God is good!!!

24 hours from now I will see my liver surgeon and find out how successful my surgery was.  I have a CT scan at noon and then go see him.  Woohoo!  Then on Thursday I'll see my colon surgeon and set a date to have my colon resection done - in other words he will cut out the part of the colon with the tumor on it.  If there is anything left in the liver that will probably be cut out at the same time.  Then I should be cancer free!  I'll keep you posted.

New Anti-depressant

As of my last post I told you I was going to get anti depressants. Found something that works even better. A new puppy. We've had her a little over a week now and she is really sweet. At least she will be when I can convince her she really doesn't need to chew on me all the time. Housebreaking is going well. She is starting to get the idea to go to the back door when she needs to go potty. Unfortunately that's usually right after she piddles on the floor.

The cat finally came out today. He's been hiding upstairs for most of the last week. He wasn't too happy with a new dog, but he's starting to get used to it. He lived with a dog his whole life so it really isn't anything new for him.

Physically I'm doing well after surgery. Still get really tired easily, but the pain seems to be gone and I'm not getting out of breath as bad as I had been. I have an appointment with my oncologist today to see what he thinks the next steps will be. Probably an appointment with the colon surgeon to get that part taken care of. I'll keep you posted.

Here's a picture of the new baby. We finally decided to name her Abby.

And here's Devil Kat.
