I've been home recovering for a week now and it's getting better with each passing day. I've some bruising and soreness yet to overcome but feel pretty good considering. I found out Wednesday that my cancer is stage 2. It entered the colon's muscle wall but not the lymph nodes, :) Can you believe they sent off 40 lymph nodes to be tested? I couldn't believe it. I go Thursday for my checkup. During this time I'll be referred to an oncologist to see if chemo will be needed. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and left their well wishes during my hiatus. It's my hope to return to blogging tomorrow and visit each of your wonderful blogs.
