    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    Not only did I find out I had cancer, I learned it spread to my liver and I was already at Stage 4

    Colon surgery (colectomy or hemicolectomy)

    Procedure or Surgery

    I did well. And was out of the hospital in record time. Surgery - Wednesday, Home by Friday, Garage Sale-ing by Sunday... And it was all due to prayers.

    Anniversary

    Celebration

    The surgen gave me 2-6 months, the oncologist said 2-6 years if I did chemo. I made it one year and was thrilled.

    Decision Point

    After going chemo for over a year (every other week), I'm wondering how long I can continue to do this. Physically I can handle the chemo, Mentally its tough. I'm tired of going to the hospital, I'm tired of chemo. When is enough ENOUGH?
