Two weeks ago I had a colonostophy. While in recovery room, my Dr. Told me he removed two polyps and then he told his nurse to make an appt. for me in two weeks to discuss my results. As much as I tried not to worry, I lost a lot of sleep these last 2 weeks. Yesterday I called his office to see if he could call me with the results as we were expecting an ice storm on top of yesterday's snow storm. She told me the dr. Needed me to see him in person...that didn't do much for my sleep last night.
Today I drove in the ice storm by myself as my wife was very sick all night (food poisoning? ). The 30 minute drive took 75 minutes. I checked in, saw the dr. And was on my way in less than 10 minutes! He told me one polyp was benign and one was pre-cancerous and that it was fortunate for me I had the proceedure now.
Needless to say, I floated out of the office and cheerily made my way home, blessing (instead of cursing) several of my fellow snow driving challenged travelers.
In my old lifestyle I would have ate my way through the last two weeks, thanks to my new SP lifestyle, I ate my plan, logged 750 minutes of exercise and lost two pounds despite low energy due to lost sleep.
God is good! ......snow is magical, the smell of pine trees..intoxicating!
