Some of you may know my story while others are just starting on my journey. In August, I thought I had a urinery track infection when I spotted blood in my urine. Well, after antibiotics didn't clear it up, the doctor ordered pictures to be taken of my bladder. He discover tumors that were cancerous. On Sept. 15th. I had 4 tumors removed from my bladder. They were tested and found I have an aggressive form of cancer. So bladder surgery is now scheduled for tomorrow, Oct. 16. If you looked at me, you couldn't tell since I feel very well with no pain. I have a very positive attitude that the doctors and God will take great care of me. We have a number of friends that have reached out to help Deb n. Myself through this process. Up until now we have been notifying people on FB ,texting , and various phone calls. We have a long list of people to notify so we thought we would do one site where all can read what is happening. I start early tomorrow but Deb has said she would post after I get out of surgery. I guess she thinks that I will be a little groggy. So until I finish with surgery to all my friends, thanks for all your prayers, hugs, n love. See you soon. Welcome to our CaringBridge website.
