I haven't given you guys an update for a while even though a lot has happened since the last update!
I'll start with all of the good news. The doctors were able to successfully remove all of the tumor masses that they wanted and currently I am cancer free! In other good news, I am home from the hospital and am on the road to a full recovery.
Unfortunately I did not make it to this point without a bit of struggling. I had some major post-op complications and my estimated 10 day hospital stay turned into a 45 day hospital stay. Sparing you the gritty details, I was unable to eat or drink the entire time at the hospital, and am only now beginning to transition to eating again. For the last 2 months I've been getting all of my nutrition through IV. Yea, it's about as exciting as it sounds. Anyway, now I'm dealing with a bunch of muscle atrophy and living life with a few too many tubes going in an out of my body.
With any luck, I'll have the tubes removed and be moving around like normal very soon. I missed eating Thanksgiving dinner this year, but I'm just thankful that I'm still here and mostly I'm thankful for all my friends and family who have supported me through all of this. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and thank you again for everything!
