    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Shock, disbelief, self pity, fear, and loneliness.

    Colostomy-stoma reversal. An infection occurred at the new surgical site and the former surgical site. Bile was leaking from the stoma reversal closure.

    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    A common phrase between married couples "love you" is said many times during a marriage. It almost becomes casual. A nice thing to say almost like bye or hi. But when your diagnosed with stage lllb colin cancer, in and out of the hospital for almost four (4) months, and your wife is there every day to visit you ... and says "love you!" It has strong meaning.
