I did, however, promise I would always update with my health. So here it is.
I have an upcoming trip to Mayo Clinic planned for the end of June. Two fun filled days of being poked, prodded, scoped and more. Yahoo. Honestly, I am nervous as all get out for this appointment. I haven't had an upper scope in 3 years! (In my defense that was at the recommendation of the GI at Mayo, but going that long between scopes is a bit unheard in the FAP community). But 3 years! So much could have grown or changed in 3 years. I am doing my best not to dwell. It is what it is, and I cannot change it at this point.
While at Mayo this time I will be going for the 3 for 1 deal. While I am under for the upper scope, they will also do the lower end. I will also be getting a thyroid ultrasound done while I am there. (The latest research out of Cleveland Clinic is showing the incidence of thyroid cancer in FAP patients is much greater then previously thought). I figure more bang for your buck this way. Well, not really. We will still be spending what most people will spend on a nice, FUN vacation somewhere else.
I do have a handful of other post in the works, that is if anyone out there in is still interested in reading them. I promise to (try) not whine (too much) and to show how life with FAP is not a death sentence and that living without a colon isn't all that bad.
As always, a Gracie picture.
