Four thirty this morning it was still raining outside and by eight: snowing. What a beautiful sight to my tired, Christmas shopping body. We received about an inch and are expected to get more tonight. I'm afraid we won't get the 'BIG' snow I so long for but at any rate I still love what we have.
Thank you to those who've stopped by and left your support, kind words & prayers for me. It's greatly appreciated. Monday of this week I went to see the colon/ rectal specialist about my colon cancer. He said I definitely have cancer and surgery (through a small incision) will be needed to remove the right side of my colon as well as the lymph nodes surrounding the area. If there's no complications (1 in 100) from surgery I will not have a colostemy bag. My blood work came back really good and the CT scans show no spreading. As for chemo... to early to tell. We need to learn what stage my cancer is first.
It's strange for me to say I have cancer when I don't feel sick or feel any initial pain. The only thing I can say is I'm tired A LOT. Still I fight through this so as to enjoy my last few days before surgery. For those who'd like to know when & where my surgery will take place please email me at naquillity at hotmail dot com. Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday~
