Friday Dec 10th--

Latest update:

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.

These many exceptions to the norm will continue to reinforce, support, uphold and PRAY for Marky!!!
