My name is Farokh Monajem.

I ran into some digestive problems in the middle of June 2009. Janet (my wife) was out of town on business, which was not a big deal at the time. Unfortunately, things have gone from bad to worse. This diary is an attempt to make sense of it all. I found it impossible to keep the blog up to date when this whole thing started. All entries were entered after the fact, or after the events had taken place. Some emotions may have crept in ahead of their time. The blog is up to date now, with entries occurring about once a week.

I was diagnosed officially with colon cancer on August 10, 2009. My operation took place on September 2, 2009. That is pretty speedy. And in these days of the U.S. discussing the benefits of public health care, it is important to highlight the speed with which the diagnostics were carried out, and the operation planned.
