Small update...

Here's an update :)

~not much on the job front, yet

~We met with the GI dr. on Wednesday and I was a little surprised by that visit. She said the findings were definitely worrisome. She did say that the larger polyp had NO cancer cells in it (which really surprised her) but that it was not a matter of IF but a matter of WHEN that it would have turned into cancer. It was the in last stage before it would have turn to cancer.

She originally told us that she wanted to check that area in 3 months to make sure it had healed properly but because of her findings, she didn't want to wait any more than 6 weeks after his first colonscopy. She wants to biopsy the entire area for more cancer cells. She ordered cancer blood tests (he did those thurs.) and a CT scan of his abdomen and pelvic area (did that fri.). She doesn't expect to find anything but she wants to be thorough.

The thing that bothered me the most was when Paul confirmed the size of the polyp (4cm) she kept saying, "Yes, it was very, very large." Paul asked how long she thought it had been growing (mind you, we had been told many years by a different doctor) and she said months NOT years :( Sooooo....that's what's been going on :)

I WILL be posting a much lighter post soon...something to do with a little blond-haired, blue-eyed girl and a cricket...hehehe....

Hey Missy,

Thanks for the update. Praise God everything was caught early and removed. Sounds like you have a great doctor too.

I hope you hear some good news on the job front really soon.

You're in my prayers, my friend!

Praying for you all. I'm glad they found it and hopeful that they did remove all of it and this nightmare will end soon.
