    People who say trapshooters have big hearts are soooooo right. I can't express to all of you how blessed I feel to have so many of you praying for me and wishing me well. As Dave said, the Dr was pretty pleased with the surgery results. Turns out, we think the cancer was a Stage 2; I'd have liked Stage 1 better, but will take Stage 2. This means the cancer did not penetrate the wall of the colon, Praise God. Also, he told us the CT scan didn't show any lymph nodes affected. Praise God again.

    Yesterday was a tough day but I'm actually doing OK today. When I got out of recovery yesterday, I pretty much slept most of the time - effects of the anethesia. The Dr came and looked me over today and said I could start having clear liquids. You have no idea how sweet that sounded after not drinking anything for 36 hours. He also said he wanted me walking around at least 4 times a day. To get me out of bed and clear my lungs and also to exercise. I'm proud to say I walked about 5-600 ft 4 times today. The last time I did it, I was able to sit up by myself and stand by myself.

    From here, it's up to the Dr as to when I go home, but so far so good.

    I'd like to say a special thanks to Mike k p for his post yesterday. I had people from here to Australia (trapshooters) praying for me and I believe it helped.

    I'll post more when I can. FOR NOW THANKS TO YOU ALL AND MERRY CHRISTMAS.
