Sorry to be so doom and gloom. But that is the truth of FAP. After I recover some from this first surgery, I will meet with a genetics counselor. Then we will begin to have a better understanding of the rest of my "risks".
In other news, yesterday I made the appointment with the ET (enterostomal therapy) nurse. I will meet with her early monday and she will mark me with sharpie where ostomy site should be. Everyday it becomes a little more real.
Have I shown you guys where I'll be recovering yet? Check this place out! It seems more like a resort than a hospital! Scott can't get over how excited I am about this. But hey when you're in my shoes you have to relish in all the positives you can. All I have to say is they have a meditation labyrinth, outdoor healing garden, complementary holistic therapies (ie. acupuncture) wifi, plasma tvs, and it is LEED-certified (basically means that it is a 'green' building). Silly the things I get excited about, huh?
*Yeah I know the chance that I'll get to experience these things while I'm there is slim to none, but it doesn't mean it isn't cool.
**Did you like how this post went from all doom and gloom to positive? Yeah I'm good at that.
