First of all I want to thank each and every one who visited, posted, emailed, sent thoughts my way in November and December! I had hoped to close up my page after a nice clean 6th month check up. Unfortunately this is not to be. My follow up colonoscopy found more cancer at the surgery site. It is unclear if this is new cancer, cancer that was seeded from the surgery, or just they didn't get it all. Whatever the case I am going back for another surgery on July 3rd. I don't what it is with me, cancer and holidays but I get to spend 4th of July in a hospital room. I am staying as positive as I can, and will fight through this just as I did last November! I hope this update finds you happy and healthy and I will be posting new updates!
Hi family and friends! As you probably have guessed something isn't quite right in my world. On Thursday November 9th I had a colonoscopy as I have been having digestive problems. 25 polyps and a 5cm malignant tumor were found. So I officially have colon cancer. On Wednesday November 15th I had a full set of labs and scans and my case was presented at the University of Colorado hospital colon cancer clinic. In a whirlwind flurry of activity I am scheduled for surgery on Tuesday November 21st. My hope for this site is to keep you all up to date on my recovery progress!
