Hi all,


Celeste asked me to post this from her blog on her behalf in regards to how she was doing. She asked me to copy and paste this from her blog.


This is a short update for my friend SUPER WOMAN Celeste. On her behave I can say the past few days have been difficult,but she handles it all with strength and determination to get better. Picking up from her post. Appendix removed 8/30 and it was found to be cancerous. Most likely goblet cell carcinoma. This resulted in appendix and 1/3 of her colon being removed. The good news is they were able to get clear margins. The not so good news is she developed a ileus couple of days ago. After being miserable and having a distended stomach along with vomiting this am a NGT was placed. Although the tube is uncomfortable, it has brought great relief. She has had over 2 liters of stomach contents output today!!! Hopefully tomorrow her pathology report will be back. Please pray with me that she has a speedy recovery AND the path report tells us no further treatment is need. Stay strong Celeste, you got this!!

Awww Les - what was thought to be just an appendix removal turned around and kicked your butt a little. I will send my prayers and thoughts to you. Looking forward to your posts down the road.

Thanks Nick for letting us know about Celeste! I just read her blog and it’s horrible all that she has been through.

Hi Celeste,

I'm really sorry to hear that you are having to deal with all this. You have helped me and countless others over the years. I hope you feel better soon. 

Thank you Eric for having Bubbles back! i was wondering where the heck she was!

ok, oh jeez, another hurdle i guess, we learn here at MRF {even family & caregivers} to deal with such hurdles, side effects from our meds, effects of our Melanoma & the complications of just everything involved. We will stand by her, we freakin NEED CELESTE! half the time we cannot understand our paperwork {reports} and we need translations! haha...shes much more then a translator, shes our sister, our fellow Warrior battling the very same enemy of our bodies...please tell her we LOVE her...Thanks Eric!! you rock..

Gosh; Celeste is a rock. AND A SURVIVOR! God Bless and keep you amazing lady. Prayers and good vibes being sent your way .
