Praising our Lord!

We just received good news...the test results from P's CT scan and cancer blood tests all came back NORMAL. about a sigh of relief. Thank you, Lord, for protecting my honey!

Now, we wait for his 2nd scope in a few weeks (tentatively set for Feb. 19th but may be sooner). She will biopsy the area the large polyp was found. Please continue to pray that there is no cancer in the wall/lining & that everything comes back normal.

"I wub him mama"

I think I'll let the pictures tell the story :)

"He wub's me mama."
"touch it, mama?"

This was her copying mama...I was FREAKIN' out big time!!
"I kiss him mama, I wub him mama!!"
"He's cute!"
"Here sissy, howd him."

After we disposed of the poor creature, daddy asked, "Where did your bug go?" S replied ever-so calmly, "At church."

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....
