Friday July 2nd, 2010--

On Wednesday, Marky had his EGD.."scope down the throat" !

He sailed through it like a champ. Never flinched as the nurse placed the IV in his pock marked arm.

Dr. Janet Harnsberger was the "approved by Humana" Doc who did the procedure. She was a dear sweet lady. She had been one of the earliest docs to look at Marky when he first entered PCMC way back in the beginning of December.

She was one of the early "head-scratchers" who passed him off to the next team in line. She had printed off all of Marks records the night before this scope, to brush up on his history. She was quite impressed with all he'd endured and even more impressed with his triumphant victory !

Today the results came back of the biopsies that were done on his stomach and esophagus during the scope.

NOT A SINGLE ABNORMAL FINDING ! ! All the cells looked like a normal kids cells. NOT A TRACE OF weird spindle cell tumor gunk lurking....at least on the inside of his stomach.

Of course, as you may remember, they only saw the nasty stuff when they did the "exploratory surgery" and opened him up...and it was all caked on the OUTSIDE of his organs.

But on his previous EGD, there were some clumps of "blunted" cells that resembled celiac villae. Except that Celiac disease is usually diffuse, or widely spread all over the stomach cells, not just clumped and blunted.

Okay, thats too much technical stuff for me too.....
But it still sounds positive....

Even so, I WILL GRAB AT ANY POSITIVE OPPORTUNITY AND RUN WITH IT AND WAVE IT LIKE A BANNER !

However, We are ordered by the Docs to remain Gluten free for now. Dr. Pohl doesnt want to take any chances on a resurgence of trouble.

The root of all this is STILL unknown and all precautions will be met with gusto to insure the supression of "what-ever-it-is" that attacked my little prince.

I wish all of Markys buddys a great 4th of July ! And WE LOVE YOU AND APPRECIATE YOUR CONCERN FOR OUR DEAR BOY !
