In the beginning of June Josh had completed all of his chemo and a PET Scan showed that there was no cancer in Josh's body...we celebrated!! He had made it through everything and could begin the process of rebuilding strength and getting back to normal, or at least mostly normal. We began the process of tests to see if he was ready to have the ileostomy removed. All of the testing went well and he was able to schedule surgery for the 20th of June. He was very excited and ready for this part of his life to be over. We arrived in Salt Lake and he had surgery as planned.
We were then told that we would need to move to Boise or Salt Lake in order to have it removed. Because of the pain and and need for fluids and IV pain medication it was decided that he should be moved by ambulance.
