Just a quick note to say that surgery went well today and Peter is ready to move on to recovery. He'll be in the hospital 2-4 days, followed by several weeks of recovery at home as we slowly move back to normal life again. Or, as Peter said, "Touchdown--the ball is across the goal line!" He's pretty happy to be done with the ileostomy, have his chemo port removed, and start thinking about a future that doesn't involve the next medical treatment or procedure.
Thanks for your love and encouragement!
