    Default prayers needed

    remember my youngest daughters saga with having her colon removed? Well, she had her routine EGD and Colonoscopy done yesterday and they found over 100 more polyps in her stomach and "massive" amounts in the 6" of colon/rectum she has left. They are doing biopsies of course but since they can't do all of them she will probably end up on chemo again even if they come back negative. If they come back positive, they can do like a gastric bypass and take out part of her stomach and they could finish taking out her colon/rectum and she would have the bag again. Since she is highly allergic to whatever they make the bags out of and the glues she really doesn't want to do that.
    We are hopeful that her new doc will refer her up to Huntsman's in Utah. It is the equivalent of Mayo and MD Anderson but for this particular disease.
    She says if she has to go back on chemo she is going to dye her hair blue, green and purple and when it falls out she is going to have her head tattooed. Well, she is only 34!
    Please keep her in your prayers.

    Oh how absolutely horrible and stressful for all of you. I certainly hope you are able to get her into that special clinic and that they can help her. She is very young to be going through this and your hair must be turning gray overnight from worry. I am so sorry, and of course you will be in my thoughts.

    Praying! Also, warning: TMI ahead... When I had the detested ileostomy, I had a lot of pain on my belly skin, partly because of the glue, and made worse if there were ever a leak (which there were, on occasion). There are lots of products on the market to alleviate these issues. I recommend the colorectal cancer forum on WebMD.com. It was a great source of information for me during my journey. The forum is for patients and their care-givers; it's monitored by a medical person, but mostly just "lay people" sharing stories and ideas. Hope that helps.
