Well, I survived another appointment with the surgeon today. Quick probe of sights unseen prove that all has continued to heal well. The surgeon expects that I will have no problems when everything is put back together again. If I start my last chemo treatment next week then I will have surgery to close the ileostomy the fist week of April, assuming that all my blood counts are back up to normal levels at that time.
I did ask the doctor if he could restore my 6-pack abs when he performs surgery. He laughed and said he will give me mine back just as soon as he gets his back!
Mark scheduled his colonoscopy today. He and my dad plan to have them done on the same day, a special family bonding moment! I am proud of these guys for getting it done! Early detection is the key! Thank you Mark and Daddy! I love you both!
