So What's the Scope?

Ron had his stomach scoped yesterday.  It went very well and they found no sign of cancer.  The doctor did say there were 4 nodules where the stomach empties into the bowel but they were more like pre-ulcers.  He did take a biopsy but said he didn't expect it to be anything.  He is treating Ron for excessive acid and prescribed a medication that seemed to do the trick this morning.  Ron was not sick after he ate breakfast and it made his day!!!!

We see the oncologist again on the 22nd and I'm guessing she will tell us how they plan to biopsy Ron's lung.  Everything seems to be in slow motion.  We are hurrying up to wait.......or it seems.  

We had the closing on the house yesterday and the check is in the bank!  Hooray!  I'm so glad that is all done.  Ron needed closure on that as well.  Now it is just full steam ahead.  Here's to a great weekend!

That is wonderful news and I am hoping for similar news for the lungs.
Wonderful that he can eat again.
