Last August I wrote my first sharepost. Shortly before that I had found this site on a night away from home when I was feeling really bad physically. I tried not to worry and thought it might just be symtoms of anxiety. I went in the hospital about that time with intestinal bleeding, and shortly after, back in with a blood clot, probably caused by the coagulents they gave me on my first visit. I went to the emergency room on a third visit to check the heart. it was Ok.
Now I know the real deal. I have colon cancer. My surgery is July 5th. A third of my colon will be removed laproscopically. CT Scan shows no spread of the disease. I put a positive spin to this where possible. Now I know one thing that is really wrong and what will be done to fix it. I will try to enjoy each day, just the living of it. I know I will face some fears in the days to come but will not let them consume me. I will trust the people who's care I am in to do their jobs.
Let me say that I appreciate all the support you have given this past year while I tried to sort out my problems. Thank you for caring.
I will try to post during my hospital stay if possible. I expect to be in some pain. I hope I can keep my head clear most of the time. I don't like drugs that mess my mind up. Some of you can relate to that.
My advice to you and myself - Remember the good days - Ther are still some to be had.
My best to you,
