Bowel resection surgery is scheduled for tomorrow morning but I am being admitted today for bowel prep, bloodwork, EKG, and chest x-ray. I have really not been looking forward to this as I still feel really good physically and I know this surgery is going to knock me down a few notches for a while. My hope is they get in there, take it out, and return me to NED status (albeit at stage 4). I am very comfortable with the surgeon (Dr. Stewart) who is also my melanoma specialist at Wake Forest Baptist Health.
Despite a terrible football game last night, I was at least able to enjoy some good food and drink prior to the surgery.
Wish me luck.
