HEALTH CONSTRUCTION ZONE



  As some of you know already, I will be "going
         through the health construction zone " for a period of time. 
         I am an 8-1/2 year ovarian cancer survivor, however the 
         cancer returned with a tumor in my pelvis in Oct. 2016.



  Since then I have been receiving chemotherapy drugs plus 
          Avastin which stops the blood supply to tumors. I am
          happy to say the tumor has shrunk to where the gyn-
          colonic-oncologist surgeon is anticipating an uncompl-
          icated colon resection to remove the tumor.



(An image of the colon. Right?)

   My surgery will be Tuesday, March 28 and I will be in the hospital for a week and then an indeterminate time of recovery.


   As soon as I am able to be on my computer and 
           a clear mind to write, I will have this site up and 
           running again. Hopefully there will be no detour
           or stop signs; but only "construction complete."



   I have great faith in my gynecologic oncologist
            surgeon, his team of nurses, and most important I know
            that The Great Physician is with me every minute of
            every day. He will also be guiding the surgeons.



   I will try to keep you updated as to how my health is in
           the construction zone. I thank you for your prayers
           and support. I anticipate a beautiful road of life ahead.
