Funny how many docs we have, isn’t it? I went in for my endoscopy and colonoscopy today with my gastroenterologist and saw my thoracic surgeon sitting in one of the offices. I never saw this man much—I mostly dealt with my oncology surgeon after my Ivor Lewis. But even after over 2 years, my thoracic surgeon remembered me and I got a big hug from him. Believe me, I let him know how thankful I was for the wonderful job he did—I told him our city was fortunate to have a talented surgeon like him. I haven’t even had to have a dilation since my surgery.
Anyway, my endoscopy looked great—no signs of irritation, no signs of the cancer returning. Everything was wonderful. I am very thankful and feel blessed. My colonoscopy also went well (my first)—had a 10 mm polyp removed and sent off for biopsy, but it didn’t look su****ious, so I think all will be okay with that, too.
Despite feeling guilty at times for how very fortunate I am relative to others, I just had to share the good news. Life is sweet!
