Hi to all, I had my scans this morning and will know the results tomorrow. But the big news is...my PEG is gone..YIPPEE. Of course mine went like everyone else's with my doctor saying take a deep breath and he yanked and I howled. Then I cried because it was gone. The doctor told me to stay on the Boost and Ensure because I ha dropped 15 pounds since everything started but since I was eating and only flushing it, he felt it was less chance for infection if it was gone. One step toward the ending of this. Oh and I will see the ENT on Thursday to decide about the trache based on my scans. It appears the mass caused my larnyx and my epigilottis to lay flat against my throat so those may have to be surgically repaired and if so the trache will have to remain. But hey, I am minus an alien from my belly and am thrilled. Will update as I get them. Thank you all for your prayers and support. I wouldn't have made it this far without you all. God Bless.

Great news on having the PEG removed. I remember how happy I was the day mine was removed and it's amazing how much more normal you feel without it.

I will continue to pray that your scans come back clean.

Stay strong,
Glenna
