Christmas Eve Eve---
Afraid to say it outloud.....but looks like Santa will be visiting us at home this year !
Marky is feeling great, since his honorable discharge last week.
He's taking oodles of ex-lax every day, and that seems to be doing the
trick. We D/C'd the use of the Miralax.
No pain reported....unbelievable.....miracle!
Hope all of Markys Buddys have a miraculous Holiday season full of fun and good health.
We love you. Lynette

Marky CAME HOME !
After all the tests and hand wringing and coins tosses, the little warrior was released.
The surgeon was not comfortable opening him up, without more convincing evidence. Thats good....convincing evidence is NOT good.
Marky was referred to an "integrative medicine" Doc who deals with chronic pain .
The colonoscopy that showed some weird stuff is now being deemed a mystery. None of the other tests supported what the colonoscopy showed.
As always.....a mystery !
But Marky is home and cheerful. He hasnt eaten any solid food for 3 days, just liquids. So today he's eating well, courtesy of aunt Lori.
We will be home for Christmas ! No need to transport Marky's portable chimney ( from last years stay) up to PCMC. Markys cousins crafted the beautiful, authentic-like chimney, complete with stockings, simulated wood fire and brick -like motif !
We will continue to enjoy it at home !

Friday Dec 10th--
Markys GI Doc called today to say that the colonoscopy results indicate that something is pushing in or crowding around the colon on that right side.
We are now waiting for the Surgeon to call.
Before they operate, they want Marky to have a "Barium Enema" !
Its a diagnositic study that they fill up your colon with Barium, the chalky white crap, and make you hold it in while they take a bunch of xrays ! Its SOOOO painful to go through ! I used to do these procedures to patients when I was an xray tech, back in the day. Cant imagine making a little kid endure it.
But we will do it.
The surgeon says he wont do the surgery till Marky has it done. It will help him know more about what he's going in after.
They cant use the "3 hole punch" method (Laproscopy) because his "insides" are too matted down with the fibrosing crud. So they will likely go in the same scar that they carved last year this SAME TIME !
It will be up to the Surgeon, of course. It will be the same surgeon that operated on him initially last year with the exploratory stuff.
Dr. Pohl indicated that what will likely happen is that they will have to re-sect that portion of his colon that is getting choked by the fibrosis/ scarring stuff.
Now we wait for the procedures to get scheduled.
Pray for Marky please.

After surveying the little warrior with xrays and the usual "coin toss" of what "it" could be, the experts decided to clean him out !
The "clean out" consisted of a Molasses and Milk concoction that was infused retro-grade into his colon via the "Southern" most approach !
For those of you who dont get my "Sensitive" description of the procedure:
An Enema !
The poor guy was so uncomfortable, crying and trembling, humiliated, etc.
He got through it, though, and was, in my view, 10 lbs lighter afterwards!
The "Head-scratcher's" ended up with the customary diagnosis that should just be named...."MarkJeanes" :
"WE DONT KNOW"
Either the impacted volume of crud in his colon is causing the pain, or the pain is causing his Colon to spasm and pile up with crud. ? ? ?
He is scheduled for a Colonoscopy next week to make sure the Endoscopy centers have their volume quotas met.
Have a better Wednesday. Love you guys, Markysmom
