We went to the hospital today for a CT scan of the chest. We don’t have results on that yet but are hopeful that the cancer will not be found above the liver. We also had a wound care class and a preoperative marking which all ended up being ostomy training. There is a chance that Amos will have to have part of his intestines brought through his abdomen to the outside of his body and surgically attached there which means he would have to temporarily live with a bag for his waste until they could safely reattach his intestines. We are hoping this will not be necessary but are now prepared for that option. Tonight we had Pinewood Derby, which was a blast, but it’s been a long day and Amos was dragging by the time we got home. Hopefully he can make it through his last day of work tomorrow. The best news of the day is that they moved his surgery up a few hours so he has less time to starve Thursday morning. That morning, we plan to stop by Gilbert High to pick up some Team Amos #cancersucks bracelets they made for the students. We also ordered our “tap out cancer” t – shirts. Amazing things are happening and I know we will all come out of this stronger.
