One Procedure Down, One to Go

Just a little update... The upper GI went great yesterday and they saw no cancer in the duodenum!  Whew.  So, now we're just doing the count down for next Thursday, the 31st when surgery is scheduled.  But, we did get some bad news last Friday.  It turns out my partner misunderstood the doctor and he is saying he is pretty much certain there is cancer and it's highly unlikely there isn't cancer in the gallbladder.  We are choosing to go with hope.  Praying that when they remove the gallbladder next Thursday, they were wrong and there is no cancer present.  Man, what a roller coaster this has been.

Still waiting for the garden to sprout - it will be a week tomorrow since planted so it ought to be any day!  The shop is really coming along.  Windows are in, roof edging is one.  Only the roofing felt, roof and felt to do and then it's finished besides the sheet rock and we're hiring a young, local guy to do that.

Hope everyone is having a good week!


  1. Thanks for the update. Keep checking your blog everyday. Keep the faith. Know that your followers are thinking and praying for the best results possible.

  2. You know we're praying for you both. Keep holding onto that Hope and Faith, God is NO limits.

    Glad you aren't going to roff it yourself, that is a big job for one person. We've reroofed all three of our homes, this last one we paid a man and put in metal roofing.

    Hope you see sprouts soon, it's so much fun, isn't it?
    Today we're getting Spring snow, really wet, but a blessing to get our pastures off to a good start. So far about 3-4 inches, but it's melting too, so not sure of that is accurate.

    Blessings and Hugs to you both,

  3. I am praying for the best results possible. Has the doctors checked the panceas?
    Blessings and Hugs to you both

  4. I hope that whatever it is, it can be taken care of. Keeping you both in my prayers. Inger

  5. My prayers continue for you both. I'm so glad she has you right now. I can't even imagine how scary it must be.

  6. Okay. Step one, complete, with good results. That's great news and progress. Now, on to step two. Next week will be the big week. Were you able to confirm this will be a same-day check-out procedure? I really really hope so. Recovery at home is awesome! I'm thinking of you both... More positive thoughts going your way... You guys can get through this - I feel that in my heart!

    I think our rain will be great for your weeds. Weather.com is promising spring weather right around the corner. It won't be long before your garden is full of green.


  7. Thinking about you two today. Hope all goes well.
