Went in for surgery for a cyst on my bladder, and they found colon cancer growing on the outside of the colon. Got to have two surgeries at the same time! Stage 3, one node involved.

Another occasion where I can't find the right words so I just keep saying thanks over and over again and I really mean it.
At some point I will start a conversation about starting hospice and understanding what it means. If they deliver things like a hospital bed or a commode, shouldn't there be someone with it to show you how to use it most effectively the day that it arrives? Anyway, I digress.
Thanks.
