NO COLOSTOMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had my meeting with the surgeon ( PY) today ~ and NO COLOSTOMY NEEDED!!!!
Doing backflips and somersaults and cartwheels and handstands here! :-)))))))) And the more I deal with this guy, the more I like him ~ he doesn't have a 'god complex' at all, AND he has a great sense of humor!! He let me go through my 2 pages of questions without ever once making me feel like I was keeping him from something else. And best of all ~ he has no objections to my desire to be a DNR!!!
My second piece of good news came as I was clocking into work today ~ Doc CH (the plastic surgeon) was sitting in the breakroom, so I went in to tease him about his office saying that no way would he do an abdominoplasty on top of a colectomy... he looked at me and said, "I might"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" So before I left PY's office, he actually called CH's office, told him what was going on. I have an appointment with CH for the 'official' consult meeting on the 14th. :-))))))

So surgery will be on 10/8 ~ 5-7 days in the hosp. ~
