Not the News we Expected

Well we got home a couple hours ago from Jeremy's colonoscopy. He is resting comfortably on the couch. How he sleeps with the tv blaring I will never know! We prayed for a clean colonoscopy and had high hopes of skipping home and enjoying our day. Well unfortunately the gastrenologist found 2 polyps that had already grown back within the 7 months of Jeremy's last colonoscopy. They removed both of them and have sent them off to pathology. We hope to get the results within 5 to 7 days. The waiting is always miserable. We are still hopeful and spending much time in prayer. The hardest part is that the polyps grew back in the exact same area of the colon resection. So basically in the same area as the first polyp that was cancerous. We are still pretty shell shocked, mainly because we were so hopeful that it would be completely clean. Many times we don't know the plan our Heavenly Father has for our life, but we are continuing to be strong and have faith. I promise to let you know the pathology report as soon as we know them. Please continue to keep our family in your prayers. Pray for healing, pray for a good report, and pray for us as we wait for the news.

I have been following your blog for awhile, but wanted to let you know you and your family are in my prayers. My husband recently got sick and spent a month in the ICU and has been diagnosed with an autoimmune disease and his organs are being attacked. It's been very hard. I just wanted to let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers and I am praying for your husband's healing.
