Today was quite the day!
It started off this morning when I found out that there was a communication mishap (between the surgery center and my doctor's office) and I wasn't on the schedule for any procedures today!
Yeah I was freaking out when I heard that too.
The thought of having to drink that awful stuff again was enough to make me want to throw up.
Thankfully they were able to squeeze me in a little later today at a different surgery center
otherwise I was getting ready to protest outside the doctors office.
Once I was at the surgery center they had a really hard time starting an IV on me.
After 5 tries they f.i.n.a.l.l.y. got it!
Of course that's when Aaron decided to take this picture of me.
I was trying to look happy even though my arms/hands were killing me from all those
Then I had the procedure done.
Apparently I have a super duper high tolerance to anesthesia because they gave me triple the normal dose of meds and was I was still awake and talking to them.
I kept saying, "Can you give me a little more. Aren't I supposed to be out. Is it not working?"
So the good news is they didn't find any tumors (at least in my colon, appendix, colon or large intestine)!!
But they did find some other abnormal things and they took a bunch of biopsies of different things (don't ask me what it all was because I can not even tell you).
They also still want me to get a specialized (crazy!) Octreotide scan and to do some other procedures so they can check out my pancreas, small intestine, lungs, liver, etc. for tumors.
But in the meantime we are praising God for the little victories and good news!
He is so good!
Thanks for the support and love and prayers!
