Part one of my “two steps to clear” is now complete. My colonoscopy last week showed no new growths! I was nervous leading up to this of course. But when I was awoken from the nurse, she was chipper and kind. Once she told me to get dressed and the doctor would be with me shortly – I knew I was in the clear. Such a different experience from the last. Now I have a scan in September and that is the big one. I am trying to keep myself busy until then. I know that the wait in my surgeons office a few days following the scan will feel like the longest of my life. Now I just need to mentally picture him saying the word “clear” over and over again in my head.
