I just received the news that the 4.4 cm polyp removed from Shawn’s colon is an adenoma,* a benign tumor! This is great news and an example of the power of people praying together. Even the surgeon felt the growth would be determined malignant. I do not have to tell you how relieved Shawn is, and of course, so am I. She will have to return to the hospital at a later time to complete the colonoscopy that was interrupted due to her waking up during the procedure. But now there is time to continue building the image of a vital, perfectly functioning system, fully healed.
Thank you all for your prayerful support!
* Adenomas of the colon are quite prevalent. They are found commonly at colonoscopy. They are removed because of their tendency to become malignant and to lead to colon cancer. --Wikipedia
