Yesterday I had that fun test where you drink all that nice stuff.

As usual the prep was worst than the test.  Dr did remove a couple of polyps but he said they looked benign.  He found some diverticula. But all in all he said he didn't think I would need to drink that stuff for another ten years.  That's fine with me.  By that time I may not know what I am drinking or even be around.  LOL. I am supposed to take it easy today because of the polyp removal.  My abdomen hurts with a dull ache, but I really hurt in my jawline.  I don't know if it is lymph nodes hurting or whether they used a mask when they put me out.  Sometimes anesthesiologists really press in that area to hold masks on.  Because of my other problems they did put me out rather than the normal twilight sleep.  But I was only gone 35 minutes, so how much could that have hurt me?
 
Now the latest on my friend in the "big" hospital in Warren.  As of last night nothing had been diagnosed.  He is now going into week seven.  The last test they did was to take blood, separate white cells and tag one then return the blood to him and with nuclear tests they will watch as to where that white cell heads.  They are still looking for a source of infection somewhere.  I was impressed that a hospital in Warren would have nuclear medicine.  I guess the CT scan of the lungs showed nothing unusual.  He has been in the hospital now nine days.  They live on a very limited retirement income and Medicare with a not real great supplemental insurance.  I don't even want to think what this will do to them financially.

Glad your test went okay.  I thought of your friend this past weekend when I was at the chapel at St. Joesph's for Saturday mass.  Jordan thinks it is so neat that we can sit on couches in the waiting room and watch the priest on "TV".  Anyways I hope they find out soon.  I would think now after weeks of tests there should be some type of results.  Maybe a trip to the "bigger" hospital in Cleveland is next on the list for them just to get answers.  Prayers that they find something soon.

They are talking about that bigger hospital in Cleveland, but right now they do feel the doctors are really trying to find answers. Stella said a doctor sent them to Cleveland when his PSA test was off a few years back. So she feels they will do that again when they run out of tests. I was waiting to hear you say you had run into them at the hospital. You never know when you visit who you might see or meet. How's Jordan doing in school this year? Hugs MK
