Tumor IS Gone!

Surgery went well as has his recovery. Tumor shrunk from golf ball size to nickel sized. Only had to remove 8" of colon vs. a potential 24". He's been up and walking, eating and laughing.

Here is a cropped photo of what's been done, the blue area covers his colostomy bag. There are 4 laparascopy incisions in his abdomen for the one surgeon to do the colon release for reattachment and a large incision from his belly button down to the pubic bone for the Cancer, rectum and colon removal.

He has another pouch where you see the tape, this is gathering the post-surgical drainage.

Honestly, all things considered, he's doing really well. Planning on discharging tomorrow unless the two sites need more attention here.
