Hey everyone,
I have been saying I'm sick of feeling sick for months. Still very weak, nauseated and dizzy. Trying very hard to get calories to stay in me....but stomache wants to get rid of it as soon as I try. I get those results on the scope tomorrow...good or bad I'm hoping they can pin point why I feel like this. They took 23 tissue samples, and two possible cancerous polyps. (WHY DO THEY SAY THIS ?) O.k., I know why, I get it... I have an excellant doctor. The use to be strong woman in me is wanting back out...lol. Our # 9 grandbaby is due on Saturday for sure, unless she decides to come before. So I told my hubby any hospital stays are put off until after our Emily Jayne arrives. I'm praying for positive news tomorrow, but kinda hard to stay positive when I'm so beat down. Thinking warmest thoughts for you all ! Katie

I read your posts and so often I see strength, but I also "feel" the tired part of your voice ....if only I could do more, I admire you.

Anyway ...congrats on that 9th grandbaby (holy cow I still have young kids at home) ...and don't think for one minute you are off the prayer list :) Your stuck on it!!

Best,

Tim

prayers that tomorrows news is 1) positive, that they don't find any cancer...2) that they do figure out why you feel so crappy...and why you're having so much trouble keeping food down...There is a strong woman in there...strong people get tired, too...give her a little rest and she'll be out there fighting again tomorrow....Not getting enough to eat and stay hydrated has to contribute to feeling bad...I have never felt so sick as when I was dehydrated, and I didn't even know I was...

Tucking you into my pocket along with Nick...

Hello !
Well my results were very good. I had one spot that was defineately a colon cancer red flag....but they got it all. (Not ACC though, thank God...meaning no mets of my H/N cancer) They will moniter every two yrs and then spread it out accordingly if no more is found. Funny man told me to go home and drink more gateraide.....hee-hee, buddy ! I also have pnuemonia in my left lung....so that's whats been dragging me down. Will let you all know when our little granddaughter arrives tomorrow ! Again, thank you all...will be thinking of you ! Katie

I am so happy to hear that your biopsies were better than expected and you can now get over this pneumonia and maybe pick up some energy on the way.

Oxymoron, I know, but given the alternative possibilities...just take care of it!

Can't wait to hear about Emily Jayne!

Totally great news...

One of the good things with colon cancer is that it tends to be a very slow growing cancer initially.

One of the reasons that everyone should get the colonoscopy at 50 or earlier if there's reasons to do so.

I've lost too many friends because they didn't have exams until something was bothering them...usually too late.

So glad that everything is good to go.

Best,
John
