Great News

What would we do without cameras on mobile phones!
The sun is just rising as I am looking out of the window from my hospital room. It was an early start this morning as I had to be here for 7.0 am.
As a result of both my ultrasound scan and MRCP MRI Scan which showed up dilated pancreatic and bile ducts with some slush in the gall bladder I am having an endoscopic ultrasound any moment now so that everything can be looked at from the inside.

Fast forward an hour or so and  I am told that everything looked normal, no stones, no dilation and no slush in gall bladder.
I think it worth a painful throat with difficulty swallowing for a few days in order to have this news.

Now I can rest and relax in bed, dozing or watching the large flat screen tv in this very nice room which includes a safe, refrigerator and sofa blus a comfortable arm chair with foot rest and DVD player until I have had some lunch and feel ready to go home. All curtesy of the new private wing of our new NHS hospital.

It was also great to be told by the consultant a few weeks ago that during colonoscopy my colon looked
'boringly normal'.

Seems like time to thank all my blogging friends, amongst the many others here and overseas for their interest, care and prayers.
Will be seeing my consultant on the 6th to wrap up final details of the other bits and pieces.

It has turned very cold here with heavy snow falls in the north (10 inches) and spreading to the south over the next few days. For the moment for us it is heavy frost.

Still more to come on Cambridge

Good news indeed!
So happy for you both. Now you can look forward to Christmas without 'something hanging over you'!
Excellent timing American THANKSGIVING weekend.
So glad that England, (unlike the US!!)
has proper healthcare for all.
Much love

The news must be such a relief after all of the tests and discomfort, much less the worries. I am just thrilled to read that you are so boringly normal!!!!!!!

Enjoy your television and such on a few popscicles to help that sore throat.

I heard that you were having a terrible storm with lots of snow. Are we ready for winter? We, too, have already set record lows this week. Brrr!!!

Willow said...

Wonderful news! I'm so very glad to heard how 'boringly normal' your health is. How is Alan?

Patsy said...

Take care

I'm rejoicing with you at such great news! Praise the Lord! Looking at your photo always reminds me of a dear, godly friend I've had for years and years. I believe that is why I feel I've known you for much longer than just here on your blog.

Have a joyous Sunday and thank you for your special greetings on Thanksgiving.

Seems like I said something to this on Facebook but I'm joining the chorus here as well. It totally requires a repeat. Hurrah!!! Very, very happy for you.

Wonderful news Barbara. What an answer to prayer to be "boringly normal" LOL. I think God has such a sense of humour.
