SO as many of you know that on Sept. 1st 2010 Doug was diagnosed with colon cancer.
He had been sick since May with stomach pain and it has increasingly got worse until some nights he was bent over in pain. He hasn't been eating or sleeping and is very anemic. He is as white as a ghost and cold to the touch, I call him my personal Edward Cullen! We both think it is pretty funny.
So he finally started going to the doctor to run some test. WE thought it would be a simple gal-bladder, or ulser or maybe even appendix. But after a EGD, multiple blood test an unltra-sound more blood test, to check his anemia, and any other possibility, the doctor told us to schedule a CT scan and colonoscopy. During the colonoscopy he found the tumor in his cecum. It was about 2 1/2 inches in diameter and was cancerous. We were told by multiple doctors to go to Hunstman's Cancer Institute but we didn't have time. Doug intestines were telescoping. Incredibly rare they tell us. Basically his large intestine is sucking in his small intestine which is causing the severe pain. Our surgeon told us that this is a huge blessings because it caused him so much pain. If there wasn't the pain they would have never found the tumor. Colon tumors are slow growing and for the most part pain free until it has matastisized. On Saturday we came to the E.R because his intestines had obstructed. They preformed emergency surgery and everything went well. WE won't know what stage the cancer is until we hear back from pathology on Thursday. In the mean time so many friends and wonderful family has shown there love and support in our behalf. We appreciate the visits, prayers, love, and concern people have shown. Our families have been absolutely amazing. They have been here for us every step of the way both physically and mentally. WE love you Corbett's, Carlson's and Wiseman's. Our lives could not be more blessed.
