Surgery took place in November 2010 and I now have a permanent colostomy...Spinal mets were then diagnosed in October 2011...In January 2012 I was told of further spread to the hip area (multiple lesions)..My life expectancy is now 6-9 months. Walk alongside me on the last part of my experience with this..

Reading Material ...
Starting to get my bag organised for my 'trip' next week (trip - sounds better than operation eh)...
I thought I'd just quickly share with you all my reading material for my time in hospital...
I'm taking three books with me in the hope that I'll be comfortable enough to just relax and read in-between attempting to walk up and down every so often...
My books are:
My Shit Life so Far - Frankie Boyle
Shit My Dad Says - Justin Halpern
It's not Over till the Bag Lady Rings - Ian Spratley
Seeing any pattern here :-)))
I'm struggling to decide what I actually need in my 'trip' bag...packing for a holiday is much easier for some reason.
