Biopsies clear

Postby JBell550 » Wed Feb 06, 2019 5:35 am

Didn't want to disappear without letting you all know that my initial biopsies are clear. Obviously they need to thoroughly check the large polyp when they remove it in 4weeks or so, but at least things are looking positive. I just want to thank you all so much for being here for me and all the others in our dark days. I will be praying for you all.
