    Hi Acha. This is Bryan. Hope you are doing fine. Here we are all fine Acha. Right now, I am going through colon cancer. Started with a growth in my stomach. Couldn’t even eat, stand, and walk up and down. Was admitted in the hospital where Sean and Nirmala chechi works.Before that, I had an appointment with my primary care Doctor. Checked where the pain was coming. When she checked it, she said it was appenidicitis and went to take CT scan. After that, I was admitted in November 26th, had colonoscopy on 29th, and my surgery was on November 30th. After that, there was pain on my stomach and back. Then again got admitted on December 18th and was discharged on December 19th. Because of the air going inside my back.Before getting admitted had a chest x-ray and CT scan.Right now, I have a cath on. 46 hour chemotherapy was supposed to start on January 8th or 10th. Last week, I had a saliva test to see if it is positive. If it is positive, Sean has to take blood test. Yesterday, I had a GI appointment. They gave me soluble water to drink in order to take pictures inside my stomach. Right now, I am fine. Waiting for my chemotherapy to start. It is a 46 hour chemotherapy. Have to take it for 6 months.Every 2 weeks. Maybe I will have to take medicine. After the 46 hour chemotherapy, a nurse will come home and remove everything off. Wished to come to India this year. Hope to see you soon. This treatment is from John’s Hopkins University. Take care Acha. Bye.
