Wow. Just wow.

You won't believe this, because we barely can: HE'S HOME! I know. Wow.

They performed a surgery that can only be used in very specific circumstances of colon cancer type and location; he has no external incision and no pain meds. Think about how science fiction that sounds: major colon cancer surgery with no external incision, very little pain, done in less than 2 hours, you get to eat immediately after, you go home the next day, and no restrictions on activity except to eat a low-fiber diet for the next week. It hardly sounds possible, does it?

He ate a leftover meatloaf sandwich when we got home and now he's stretched out in the recliner watching college football. Like it never happened. Wow.


  1. Hooray! Glad he's home. Sleep well, both of you!

  2. Thank God for modern medicine! May all the results be good!

  3. I am so happy for both of you. I heard there was no chemo too, which is even better.

  4. Sci-fi indeed!
    Though I, for one, am grateful you spared us the details... 8)
    Very happy for you both!
