Still have a fever

I am still maintaining a low-grade fever. The range is only between 99 and 100 but it is enough to make me feel horrible. And the fact that I have had the fever since the 6th of October has me worried. It is odd that when I rest I don't have a fever, but when I am up and active, my temp spikes. I usually can tell because I start to feel drained of energy and feel all around bad. I hope that after surgery, since the mass will be gone, my fever will diminish and I will be back to normal.

I am worried because the fever has lasted so long.

A week is long enough but I am pushing three weeks now.

Under The Weather

I had a fever all last week up to 100 so Friday I finally reached out to my doctor and he ordered me some meds. I think it is sinus related.
Taking it easy this weekend.

I Have a Surgery Date

Surgery is scheduled for 0730 on the 4th of November. the plan of action is to have surgery and be admitted to the hospital for 3-4 days for healing.
They want to make sure I heal up nicely. then a week or so at home for full recovery.

Mass found in my colon

For those that don't know, I had a Colonoscopy on Wednesday the 28th. At the time of the Colonoscopy the doctor told me that he found a large mass and that it was in fact cancer. I know that doctors don't just throw that word around willie-nillie so I believe that in his mind -with all of his training and experience he believed it was cancer.

Needless to say, our world turned upside down. We started praying and when Friday rolled around, the pathology report stated that it was not as full blown cancer as the doctor initially thought. It is still a mass that needs to be removed, but the Pathology report called it a "Tubular Adenoma". Here is a link to what a Tubular Adenoma is: Tubular Adenoma

We thank God for answering your prayers and we thank you for those prayers that God answered.
I believe that your prayers made a difference.

We had a meeting with the surgeon yesterday (October the 6th) and are waiting on his office to call and set a date for the surgery. I will need to have about 1/3 of my colon removed. If you want details on this procedure,Here is a link: Right Hemicolecyomy and you can see what will happen.

Here is a picture of what will be removed:

Although I received great news the other day, I am still in need of prayers. We still have a long road ahead of us and the waiting is the hardest part. once I have a date I will update it here so keep looking here for updates. Thank you again for all your prayers and may God bless you as he has blessed me.
