I have some good news and bad news on this end. I had to go to the emergency room last Sunday at about 4:00 in the morning because I was in so much pain. Fortunately the doctor figured out that I was in trouble and that it wasn’t just “gastritis” like the other doctors were thinking and he ordered a CAT scan… they found a tumor in my colon (small intestine) and my intestine had closed off and was dying. It would have blown up in a matter of hours if they had not gone in and done an emergency surgery. Bottom line is that they took about 4 inches of my small intestine (which piece included the darn tumor) and they took my appendix and they stitched me up. Big scar on my stomach… but I’ll get over it. I was in the hospital until Friday night and now I’m at Mom and Dad’s house…sleeping in Mom’s room, trying to recover. Good news is that the pathology report came back and the tumor was non-cancerous!
Thank You Lord!
