Happy New Year Miracle

Hi all. I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to their New Year. I have! God has blessed me with what I think is a real miracle! Last week, I had my colonoscopy and EGD. Now, mind you, I had been given dire warnings from the specialist as to the importance of this test and that the outcome might not be favorable. Well, much to the doctor's surprise (and my own!), I had not even one little bitty polyp. No tumor or other masses, either! It is the first time in over twenty years that I have been having regular colnoscopies that this has happened to me! All the blood loss I was having came from a tiny tear in my rectum above an internal hemorrhoid but it was cauterized and I'm fine!! Thank you all so much for your prayers. They have definitely been answered.

I have the CT scans, x-rays and blood work Monday for my 9 month follow-up from the kidney cancer surgery so I am feeling much more confident that they will bring good news also! Please keep those prayers coming! You gals are the best and I am blessed by your company!

I'll be back to designing really soon and I have some great ideas for new kits. If you have anything you'd like to request, leave a comment and I'll add it to my to-do list if at all possible!

Blessings to all of you,

Hi Sally! That's such wonderful news! God always hears our prayers doesn't he? =) I was praying for you and I'm so glad to hear that your OK! I'll continue to pray that your other tests will bring wonderful news as well.

I've been trying to find my PSP CD so that I can load it into my new laptop but I haven't yet -- as soon as I do I want to start doing digital scrapbooking so I'll visit your site often.

Take care!
