The Latest…

Hi, it’s Sandi again. I just wanted to let everyone know what we found out from the surgeon. He talked with Stef early this morning and said that the surgery went well. He had to remove a small portion of his right colon and right small bowel. This was an area where the cancer could not be “peeled away.” The surgeon had not expected to have to do this, but was not discouraged by it either. He was still upbeat about the surgery. Stef was still battling a lot of pain and nausea today. The nurses and doctors have been so helpful in trying to help gain control of these things. Hopefully, they will diminish over the next couple of days. They had him up walking 4 times today in hopes of waking up his organs. They tend to stay “asleep” for an extended period of time due to the anesthesia and the chemo wash. Hopefully, he can get some much needed rest tonight.

Thank you to those of you who continue to walk beside us during this long journey. I know it is a long road, and everyone else has so much going on, but we really appreciate the continued prayers and concern from so many. Stef is continuing to battle so hard as this is far from over. Please keep him in your prayers and continue to check in on him. It really helps his spirits. Thanks. Sandi.
