A young woman's adventures after being diagnosed with FAP.

It's official, like referee with whistle. Preach*
Well I got the call and it's off to Mayo I go! Monday, December 22nd is the consult and then Tuesday the 23rd is the procedure. Yahoo! What a relief to have an actual date in writing. And maybe just maybe I'll be able to be somewhere else for Christmas (like I dunno maybe somewhere a bit warmer. . . Florida?**). I think I'll have to get the all clear from the doc to travel that far right after the procedure (I believe there are some bleeding risks) and Scott's job will have to cooperate too (now that is going to be the really difficult part). But who knows hope has now been restored in the Stolen Colon house!
*I can't take any credit for todays title. Credit belongs to the Snoop d o double g, as he left it on someone's voicemail.
** for non family readers, my parents live in Fl, hence the draw to be there for the holidays beside the warmer weather.
My name is Steph. At the age of 29 I was diagnosed with Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP). This blog is my journey through life with this disease.
I hope to use this blog to provide a way for friends and family to know what I am going through both mentally and physically. I also hope to provide a place for others w/ this disease to see that they are not alone.
