As my mom packs, I (Caroline) am dictating the following post:
Jayme met with the gastroenterologist this morning and it was determined he will have surgery on Monday, April 27. Turns out he does not have irritable bowel disease but has a mild case of colitis that is most likely a side effect from the chemo/radiation and may resolve itself over time. Dr. Nichols' schedule is not conducive to surgery until the end of April and he feels it would be beneficial for Jayme to gain more strength in the next two weeks.
We got a late check-out from our home away from home, the Rochester Hampton Inn, and are on our way back to KC now.
Looking forward to getting back home for a bit. Thanks for all the well-wishes.
