    I will ask him tommorrow exactly what it is.


    I do know he is taking pain meds, that make him sleepy.

    I believe they found a tumor when they did a colonocopy.

    I will need to verify that though, and will tommorrow

    I want to thank everyone who have expressed words of support. It does mean alot to me

    Here is what is going on. About 2 1/2 months ago I started to have severe pain in the lower stomach. It was a severe and sharp pain. I was told it was an inflamed intestine. I was put on a short term disability and given antibiotics

    When the pain did not get any better, (I thought it was either a kidney stone or appendicitis) I had a colonoscopy about 2 weeks agol and that is when it was determined I have a 6 inch tumor and colon cancer

    I will see the Dr on Wed to set a date for surgery. I will have the tumor, the cancer, part of the colon, my appendix, and gallbladder removed

    If the cancer has not penetrated the inner walls, the Dr says surgery has about a 90% recovery rate

    I will beat this, and I will be back to posting in November

    Thanks again to all of you for your kind thoughts and prayers

    I am not up to posting full time my friend. Even with the pain meds, I still have some serious pain (and it makes me sleepy)

    I need to use caution not to become hooked on them. I am going to beat this and I will be back as soon as I can

    Have a great day and take care

    Wow. I’m sorry. Though we’ve had our heated disputes and debates, we are still human. You might think of me as a fool, idiot, and a jerk. I don’t know and it doesn’t really matter in the “grand scheme of things”. Anyway, hey, please take care of yourself. Good luck to you buddy (from what is probably the other side of the political spectrum). Stay strong. May whatever you believe in give you peace and strength.
