    Decision Point: My doctors and I know we have a big battle, but we're willing to fight it and hopefully I'll win. On the other hand I have let my doctors know quality of life is more important to me than quantity, I've also asked (demanded) that nothing be held back from me so I can make the decisions that are right for me.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): The first time they removed half my colon, and part of my small/large intestines. This time the mass was rather large they had to remove all of my intestines except for 8feet, they removed 4 of 7 lymph nodes and my gall bladder. My chances of survival are 3-8% and I have chronic pain due to all the surgeries I've had to go through.

    Oh No (Cancer has spread/Metastasized): My cancer had returned after I passed the 5yr mark, now I'm stage 4 with mets. I have signet ring cell cancer that started in my appendix, that was removed in 2005, we thought I was safe but the cancer had other ideas :)
