finally!

its almost 10 pm. i'm just getting around to blogging. straight after school, i had a haircut (trim) and then i had a couple missed calls and texts from craig. he was super hungry & wanted to meet for dinner. so we did. and then, he wanted to come watch oceans 13. so we did. and then i had to do a mary kay order. so i did. now - i should be going to bed, but i wanted to give a quick update.

david's doctor got back to them tonight, i guess. heidi emailed. what he has is one step away from colon cancer. he may or may not need to go in for a resection. i think we're waiting to hear. tomorrow i will call heidi. actually, i think this is good news, cause we've all been bracing ourselves for the worst. the doctor is having the lab do some more work on the big stem/mass that he had. but for someone 40 years old - there is huge concern as to why something like this was growing at all. the thing that freaks me out the most, is that this isn't "lifestyle" issues. he's healthy & active. not overweight, etc. so this one is purely genes. momma no likey genes.

another update - a whole hell of a lot less important - not having a computer at school is killing me, but man oh man, you should see the things i'm planning and having organized. i'm actually feeling a wee bit guilty for the amount of time i spend on my computer now. no lectures, mom and dad. but it means i'm not checking others blogs as much, too & i miss that.

I was somewhat relieved to read Heidi's email too, still not breathing totally easier, but better. Some of our genes are not so good either, some that is not all. Some of our genes are darn good :)

heather is right, the jones girls have some darn good genes for real! :)

Mom said...

No comment on the computer. Ha

Dad said...

You all got your mom's "beauty" gene and my "smart" gene, I guess that's not all bad.

Good news on David -- let us know if there are anymore updates. I am actually on hold right now waiting for the lab results on my colonoscopy polyp removal.

Hopefully they caught it in time. I hope everything is okay. Genes scare me. We are waiting to hear if Ryan's brother has lymphoma. We should know either today or tomorrow. They took out 2 tumors and a lymphnode. People drop like flies from cancer on both side of Ryan's fam. Freaky stuff.(sorry I started blabbing about myself)
