Got a call from Dr. Shoup, my surgeon yesterday to call her back this morning. Part of me was dreading possible "bad news".
Here's the News:
there was a conference held at Loyola with all the Gastro Intestinal staff- surgeons, oncologists etc... and they discussed my case and determined:
1. Reverse My Ileostomy (bye bye poo pouch) I have so much output that it keeps me from gaining weight and I get dehydrated. I dread the post-reversal Depends moments, but hey, whatever helps the cause. The surgeon has an opeing a week from Monday. 2 days in the hospital.
2. My Liver is Resectable!!! - The Doctors took a further look at my recent Cat Scans and said some of the tumors CAN be surgically removed because they've shrunk enough! Remember, I had 2 very large masses on my liver, then once they shrunk, other tumors were revealed on all 3 lobes of my liver, making it impossible to do surgery.
I am stunned at the good news but oh so Grateful!
I have to thank all you warriors who have been in this fight with me from the very beginning- I know what answered prayer is, many times over, but this is a BIGGIE!!
Keep on praying my Angels- the power of your prayers is WORKING
