Bill Little (My Dad)
« on: August 11, 2011, 05:23:41 PM »
I just wanted to put a note up here about my father.

He had surgery Monday to relieve what was thought to be a bowl obstruction.

We found out today that it was to the best of my abilities to describe it the beginning of Colon Cancer.
They removed about 1 foot of his large intestine and about 1 foot of his small intestines and the tumor itself which was about 3.5"

They found some cancerous cells in his lymph nodes so they want to administer chemo therapy but not radiation.
The doctor seemed to be very positive about the situation and feels he will recover fine.

Dad is in room 1324 at Moore Regional Hospital in Pinehurst, NC.  Room # 910-715-1324

I am only posting this so that people know what is going on with him.

I talked with Bill earlier. He is doing OK and has a great outlook. I promised him a get well card with a necked gurl on it. He is looking froward to that.  LL~

Thankfully it sounds like they found it in time. 
Give Pop's my best, and hope he's back in circulation soon.

This is totally unaccepable. Bill has better things to do than be sick in the hospital. He has canopies to mold and planes to build.

Aaron, please wish him well from all of us. Glad to hear the Docs caught this when they did.

So sorry to hear about Bill's condition. But thankfully they seem to have found it in time. Here's hoping for a full and speedy recovery.

Our prayers are with him tonight.

  Thanks Aron,
  The best part here is that Bill went in early   very good chance of ending this stuff. If Farra Faucett had done this like Bill the Dr.s say she most likely would of made it, I went through some crap like this 2 years ago myself    My Doctor say I have virtully nothing to worry about .
  I'll try & contact Bill I have enjoyed talking to him as much as anyone,

That is good news Aaron.  I tried calling both the hospital and home earlier - missed both.  Here's wishing the Big Bear good spirits and a speedy recovery.  God speed & God Bless you Bill and your family.

I only know Bill through this forum. I am missing his posts already.

If he needs cheering up, do you think this would help?

My heartfelt thanks for all the kind words and prayers.  It is a tremendous help!

I find out Friday as to when my chemo therapy starts and I am getting stronger each day.  This is the first day I have felt good enough to get on the computer, I get real weak, real fast.  But I am getting better!

The malignancy was in my small intestine near my appendix and the surgeon feels he got everything.  He took out a bit more intestine than is called for, but he wanted to be sure while I was "opened up".

Hopefully I can get back to work on some models soon and I have a new "PAMPA" plane to finish up for October and Huntersville.  Might not be able to fly a 200 point pattern by then, but at least I can get it ready and be there. ;D

Really, I thank you all.

Most recent news:  I get a "port" installed for the chemo next Friday and visit the oncologist the following week.  I want to make things go faster but it's all up to the Doctors right now.

Thanks, again, fellas!
