Same song, second verse . . .
ToolMan and I went to see the surgeon again and have more testing done today. The good news is that the cancer is higher up than we previously thought, which makes surgery a little easier and the outcome a lot better. He still has to have an ultrasound next week, just to make sure the cancer hasn't gone through the wall of the colon, but the surgeon is pretty sure that hasn't happened. The surgery is scheduled for September 25th, will take two surgeons, and last anywhere from 2 to 6 hours, depending on how invasive they have to be to get all of it out. He's glad he wore his "lucky bamboo" socks.
