I've had everything crossed and just knew you'd come out the other side with good news.

Don't know that many who can remain as positive and cheery as you have been  during all this stress.

Rest up, get rid of that cold and enjoy the warmer weather you are getting!

So happy for you, Colleen.

Misdiagnosed for 25+ years; Finally Diagnosed with Celiac  11/01/10.  Double DQ2 genes. This thing tried to kill me. I view Celiac as a fire breathing dragon --and I have run my sword right through his throat.

Hey guys.


Pathology from both excisions is great.  Just scar tissue left and no nasty cancer cells!!  I'm a seriously happy camper.  MRI results should be in sometime this week but I'm pretty confident that all will be good, fingers and toes are all crossed.  I got pretty run down in the last few weeks so I'm getting better from that and I'm feeling good.


I hope you all know that your support is getting me thru this and I can't thank you enough, but I will try :)


Hoping your all feeling well,




So glad to hear the great news. We all had our prayers answered.


Lots of Love,  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

That's great news Colleen!  Congrats on a positive report!  You get an A+ in my book regardless of the report of course. :D
