    AND….I want to thank all of you for your prayers and positive thoughts.  He sent in 10 of the 50 polyps and they were all benign!  YAY!

    He is getting me an appointment with a colon specialist because there is another mass in my colon.  He says it may be another mass of polyps, and he feels they may need to be removed by surgery rather than by another colonoscopy…..he says that method is too risky….very easy to perforate the colon doing it that way.  He thinks the specialist will advise removing a small section of the colon….surgery is not the end of the world.

    I am just SO HAPPY that the “C” word was not in the conversation.  I will sleep better tonight than I have slept in 3 weeks.  Thanks to all of you!  Your prayers and support have made a world of difference!  Charlene

    Charlene I had a bowel resection and three feet of bowel removed about 24 years ago and came through it just fine. Mine was for diverticulitis. You will do fine. Just take it easy for a couple months after and pamper yourself.

    Charlene what great news.  Just one step at a time.  The hardest part if you have surgery is taking it easy for a while.  That is the worst part.  I am doing a happy dance for you.

    Awesome news, Charlene, and I can only imagine how relieved you must be !!!

    Continued prayers that the mass they re seeing is just more polyps and it can be removed surgically with no more scare of the “”C”" possibility.

    That is GOOD NEWS Charlene!  Yes, surgery is not the end of the World so if that needs to be done then so be it, and you should come out just fine.  But you will have to take it slow for a bit after the surgery and then you will be back doing what you always have been doing.  Taking care of your flowers and family.

    Great news for you and hope the surgery is for only more polyps in a mass and no more worry about “c”.  May God bless you and the specialist who does this procedure, too.  Hang in there and good sleeping for you tonight!

    I am so glad you finally have the results.  And so glad the news is better than expected.  I know you must have been very worried.  Hard to believe it took this long to let you know!

    I’m sure everyone’s prayers must have helped.  Now for prayers of “thanksgiving”…

    Thank GOD! I have worried about you for days, but it sounds like you will be ok. I had a section of my colon removed years ago and haven’t missed it a bit! I am so happy for your good news. Yes you will have to take it easy for awhile after surgery and I know how hard that will be for you but you can do it!!!
