    all things considered. In your case, having had all these people in your life dealing with cancer (including you, with your mother and sister and brother-in-law) might prove to be a benefit to you.
    I hope you don't have to wait long, and that the news is reasonably good.
    Thanks for talking with us. Glad to have you.

    •  Had my colonscopy and upper GI endoscopy (1+ / 0-)

      this morning, or so they tell me. Didn't feel a thing, and couldn't even swear it was done, but I have pictures of somebody's insides.

      One small polyp in the colon, probably benign, but resected for biopsy anyway. Possible Barrett's esophagus on the top end, but that's more likely a pre-cancerous condition, isn't all the way there, and couldn't metastasize. No tumor eating my rectum or something though.

      I'd say that's good news.
