Friday, a little bit after I posted my blog for the day, my husband got a phone call about his colonoscopy results. The polyp they removed was pre-cancerous, but advanced. The doctor seemed as shocked as we were and Rob now has to get a colonoscopy again in one year’s time. I am happy he had an early screening due to some gastro issues. I, too, have my second colonoscopy next year (due to having several pre-cancerous polyps) but I had three years between them.
Despite the news, we tried to make the most of the weekend: Roger had ABA Saturday morning, followed by a play date at friend’s house, and a sitter so we could have a date night. Sunday, we had breakfast out, followed by Six Flags. We were all exhausted after that! However, Roger got in my bed around midnight and I could not sleep after that. I think we both woke up for the day around 4 and got out of bed at 5.
My job flexibility enabled me to get 3 hours of work complete before my 8:50 doctor’s appointment. I had a blood test today to see my genetic probability of cancer (specifically colon due to family history) and breast cancer (because that is automatically checked). I go back on December 12th for my results. Even with the lack of sleep, my day has been pretty good so far with a lot of work done and Roger’s OT and play date looming ahead of me. I am sure I will be ready for bed come 6:30!
