Topic: WOW! That's All I Can Say!

Yesterday visited with my GI and he is taking a back seat so to speak as he knows that for a while now I will be with Dr. Runfola…the surgeon and Dr. King the Neuro Surgeon. When I was leaving he put his hand on my arm and said, “you are going to be just fine because you have someone with a lot of power watching over you.” I said you mean Teddy? He smiled and said yes.  Love him!!!

This afternoon was the biggie with the Surgeon who got me in to the office in just a day. Robin came also. WELL! He is not so sure my cancer is back and feels the Radiologist read it wrong!! Dr. Runfola read all my other scans from the first time around and can’t even feel it as Dr. M could not feel it either. So, I left and he called Dr. M and asked if he could do an Endoscopy that would reach that far down and Dr. M said he would try. Then Dr. M called and I am scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. It will be a regular anesthetic because he has to go so deep. I am going in at 1PM they will do it at 230PM and then we will know for sure. I forgot what the test is called. Robin will be with me. I am so blessed with my Doctors!

Until we know we shall now remain realistically optimistic. I am exhausted! But in a good way.

Love Me

Double WOW. How exciting to hear this Lainy. You know we are here for you and already wishing you the best. And to hear that maybe the reading was incorrect - what a pleasant surprise.

Good luck with your tests. We will be thinking extremely positive thoughts.
