Thanks to all of you who lifted up a prayer this last night or morning. While sitting in the waiting room after David went back, I was nervous- couldn't concentrate on the book I had brought to pass the time, couldn't even pay attention to Regis & Kelly on the television. I wanted answers. I needed to see "my baby" again.
After the procedure David's doctor called me back and explained what he found. I was praying it wouldn't be colon cancer- I wouldn't have been prepared to hear that my 25 seemingly in amazing health by his great shape year old husband has cancer. The doctor informed me that David has Ulcerative Colitis. Although this isn't great news, I am thankful that it wasn't cancer. By that time I still hadn't seen David since he went back. (why do doctor's offices do that? all I wanted to do was sit by him and hold his hand--I know he's an adult and didn't "need" me but still- can you imagine how it will be when we have children?!)
Speaking of children, there is a possibility that it will be passed on, but we have many things to get through before we worry about that. From 25% to almost 50% of ulcerative colitis patients have to have surgery their colon removed, but I can also be thankful that we are not at that point right now.
We (meaning as in he) has some medicine to try- I went to fill the prescription and it is $100 for a one month supply! Of ONE medication! That is WITH insurance--Government insurance at that(aka really good). I couldn't imagine facing the almost $400 monthly prescription without insurance.
