Merry Christmas!

Life is a series of obstacles. Sometimes you have to jump through hoops, just so you can sit down and relax awhile.

Yesterday was the dreaded colonoscopy. While Chad did not have colon cancer, appendix cancer is treated the same and pops up just about anywhere within the abdominal cavity. When he was prepping for his big surgery in March of 2015 he had to have his first colonoscopy. It was a horrible experience from the prepping right through to the results. He did not have cancer in his colon then but he did have three large polyps, one of which was considered pre-cancerous.

With all of Chad's digestive issues, it lingered in the back of my mind (his too I assume) that maybe something else is going on. There was also the hernia to contend with.

Well I am delighted to report that he is clean as a whistle. Not even a polyp in there. The doctor also did not make any notes in reference to the hernia so we can assume it's not protruding into his digestive track anywhere. Unfortunately, still no answers where that is concerned.

He still has Pain Management on Thursday. But this whole neck spinal thing has become another burden because he is having a lot more flare ups but when we went to get re-approved for his neurosurgeon visits, they decided to deny them this time. So we have to start that process all over again.

But for now - We have a clear CT Scan, a clear colonscopy, good blood results - so as far as anyone can tell - Chad remains Cancer Free entering his two year mark! We're beyond blessed!

It's the best Christmas present we could hope for.

So from our family to yours - have a VERY Merry Christmas!
