On Friday at 7:30 a.m. I am scheduled for a "left hemicolectomy with colostomy" for "sigmoid invasive adenocarcinoma". Your thoughts and prayers are appreciated and I've asked Sean to post and update here tomorrow after I'm out of surgery. The procedure may take 3-5 hours so the update may be late in the day. We'd appreciate it if you could hold your calls so I can rest, but we read emails at both my Yahoo address and my work email address. The comments on the blog also get directed to my Yahoo address. Much love to you all in this New Year.

Wow, so fast. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping it goes as well as my mother's surgery. She had it on December 10th (or so) and has had a remarkable recovery, out of the hospital in a week. Still has chemo to undergo but she said the recovery was quite painless. I'm so hoping yours is similar. Huge hugs to you and to Sean and the kids. You must all be a bit dazed.
love tiff
