Mon. 2.29

Today is my son's bday, and boy am I glad I was the one who gave birth to this wonderful man..... my baby whose diapers I changed and who's now changing mine!
Yesterday's surgery was a success (they're telling me), even though I don't feel so great. They took out a tumor the size of a yam wrapped around my colon, and now all the bloating is gone. Today I will have a blood transfusion because of severe anemia, and I will get up and walk to the bathroom.
Tomorrow my good friend, Kris, will drive up to be with me for a couple of days. My angel daughter, Kelly left today so it's been a little bit of 'empty nest'. Kris worked at hospice for many years and has been a great helper to me through previous surgeries (I've battled the disease for 12 years now). She's going be bring some fun games...she always knows how to have fun. I'm still in room F=321-B, phone: 650 498-3832. Better to send me a card than call, as my throat hurts a lot from the feeding tube.....I haven't had anything to eat now for 11 days....I wonder what my first meal will be: Sushi, spaghetti, chocolate cream pie, or just plain chocolate!!!!
Thanks for everyone's prayers and a big ALOHA to all.

Hurrah Carmen! We are so happy to hear that the surgery was successful. I can't believe you're up writing your blog and will be trucking around today. It is wonderful news.
We love you Carmen! Now just get well and get yourself over here to the big Island ASAP!

Sweetest wishes going out to you at daybreak -- over Kailua's hills, across its glassy bay, beneath the open Pacific's puffy clouds, right to YOU !!
