The surgeon said the surgery went well. I have two inch long incisions in my lower belly and a larger incision above my belly button. The reason they had to take some of my small intestines was because the incision from my appendix removal last month was sitting on top of my small intestines and had somehow fused to it during the healing process. They took the right side of the large intestine in order to make sure they got all of the associated lymph nodes and blood vessels.
We do not have a pathology report from the tumor yet. The doc said it will probably be a couple more days at least before we get the report. I may still be at the hospital by then, but, if I do good with recovery, they will let me go home earlier. I have to eat some solid food and have a bowel movement.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers! I am humbled by all of the people thinking about me. There are so many people out there dealing with issues much worse than mine, so I really do appreciate you. I should be back to normal sometime in the next couple of months.
