6-Pack Abs??

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!


  1. ahahhahhahaha, thats funny, family bonding colonoscopy. I think I need to find someone to go with me on the same day...that would be fun. We could see who would wake up faster. Paul had one done last year already...or maybe two years ago. I don't know, time flys.

    Well Laura, its beginning! The final closing up days... literally speaking huh!

    Your rounding that corner!!!!

  2. Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.............................................

  3. If you find a place that is giving out 6 packs (of abs, that is), please let me know!

  4. Yay for Mark and your dad! Scott and I had ours done within 2 weeks of each other...that would have been a little TOO much bonding for us! LOL
    Glad to hear things are still healing well !! Hope your platelets come back up next week! Love ya!

  5. I'm so happy that your journey is coming to an end! I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers, as well as Tony.

    And I agree with Erica, if you find a place that's giving out abs make sure you share the information! We could ALL use that!
