Journey Update…

Well, we are on for surgery this coming Monday, June 16th!  We met with our surgeon today for a go/no go decision.  We decided to go.  Like I have a choice!  I have cancer in me and the surgeon can get more of it out. 

So, at 1:15pm on Monday, I go under the knife for a second time.  I should be in the hospital (The James) for about a week and then six or seven weeks at home again, driving my wife nuts!!

I am looking at it this way, I get the summer off.  Can’t do anything, but I get my summer off!

Sandi will be giving updates on my progress while I am in the hospital, so stay tuned!!

  13. Hey Stef!

    I will be praying for you and your family as you undergo surgery next week. Maybe I’ll stop by with a quick hello. I know you probably won’t be on your blog very much while recovering, but Oprah had a great show on the other day. There was a man on there who is a professor at a college that has three young children all under the age of 5 and has stage IV pancreatic cancer. He gave a very influential lecture at his college as well as a piece of it on Oprah that was very moving. Here is the link http://www.cmu.edu/randyslecture Maybe you can check it out. There is a youtube link to watch the whole lecture. There was also a young woman who was on Oprah that is battling a rare liver cancer who is also in stage IV. She did a very inspiring documentary of her journey that was on TLC that I actually saw a few months back. Maybe you can check out her website too. http://www.crazysexycancer.com God Bless you Stef!! Refuse to Lose!!
