As of last Tuesday, I had to stop all NSAIDs (aleve, tylenol, etc) due to bleeding risks during next weeks procedure.  And wouldn't you know it, I got a POUNDING headache.  I guess that's life.  I have completely slathered my forehead in HeadOn and I'm pretty much inhaling peppermint oil.  

I'm getting pretty excited for Mayo.  I want this done with, all behind me.  I am ready to move on!  Yeah I know I'll have to have screenings for the rest of my life.  But, I want these polyps out of here.  No more worry, if they are growing, invading my bile ducts.  No more wondering if I look a little yellow today (jaundice is a sign that the polyps have invaded the duct).

And. . . wait for it. . . it is starting to looking like we might make to Florida after all!  I really hope I didn't just jinx us. Things are looking good for the Stolen Colon Fam.
