Surgeon {Too much pain to bear}

Yesterday I came home from the park with Lucas to find Pete lying on the floor of the living room. He was in so much pain, he could hardly get up. For a while we had been tossing around the idea of getting a permanent colostomy, like other people we've met, in order to lessen the pain, etc. but each time we/he decided he'd rather live with the pain. But, when I found him in such a terrible state, I couldn't help but say, "We're calling the surgeon now!" I at least felt it was a good idea to meet with him again and discuss "options".

So, we met with the surgeon today and he suggests radiation. Many times, if radiation works as planned, it can help with pain management. So, as of now, we are waiting on a referral to the Radiation oncologist. Pete is continuing with the all natural regimen as instructed by Dr. Pablo in hopes that it will do what Dr. Pablo states it will do.

Thank you for all your love and support. All prayers are welcomed and appreciated.
