Todays procedure showed a totally normal colon, with no huge lumps and bumps or other abnormalities. (She even gave me pictures to prove it, but I will spare you those details). She did remove a couple of small polyps and will send them to the lab, but she doesn't think they are anything to worry about. I was totally sedated for the procedures and don't remember a thing, but my voice sounds a little hoarse from the tube they put in.
One of the nurses was talking to me and asking questions and discovered that I had been diagnosed with mantle cell lymphoma. She said, "Oh, you're the one!" It seems that the whole staff was interested in my case. I am such a celebrity. Ha!
So, no cancer spotted in my gastrointestinal tract, praise God! That's two tests down (the CT/PET scan was also clear) and one to go. I'll have a bone marrow biopsy next, to be sure my bone marrow is still cancer free. It's not scheduled yet, but should be soon. I'm happy and excited, and getting healthier by the minute! Thank you again for praying for me.
Kelly was with me at the hospital. We left there around noon, went to Gran's and had a nice visit with her and Teddy. Then Kel brought me home. I'm supposed to rest for the rest of the day. I feel fine, but I am sleepy, so rest would be good.
I thank God for you, my praying family and friends!
