Other than having a large liver shaped a little like Florida, the summer had been going well.  We were getting ready to go to Switzerland for a wonderful hiking adventure with family.  NP school was proceeding along well, work was good.  Then one morning I noticed I had passed some blood.  This continued for awhile.  When we got back from our vacation, I made an appointment for a  colonoscopy, thinking it would be just routine.  Sadly, it wasn't.  There was a mass inside me that was confirmed as Stage II rectal cancer.  A very curable cancer, but one that requires aggressive treatment.  Soon I will be starting radiation treatments concurrent with chemotherapy pills.  After that, surgery.  Tough, but I'm ready to beat this!  I will need, however, lots of prayers and encouragement.  So I would greatly appreciate your kind thoughts and words of hope.   Thank you for visiting, I will be posting as we go....
