A year and a week since his initial diagnosis. Time is strange. On Lazlo’s Bday this year instead of a diagnosis Michael had his port removed. A short surgery, but one step closer to getting whole.
On Monday, Michael will have his stoma reversal surgery. This is such a relief as he’s had many complications with the stoma and has struggled with the refined foods diet that’s often recommended. He has been able to do some exercise here and there including some hikes and a little skateboarding down the coastal trail. He’ll be in the hospital for 3-7 days. This is a little nutty as it is finals week/graduation followed by the start of a new quarter for me. But I’m feeling pretty confident that with a sense of humor we can manage.
Thank you all for keeping up with us. Fingers crossed the next post will be our last as his cancer journey will move into the monitoring phase.
