Seven Promises of God (And Good News!)

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers today, I could feel them surrounding me. Test results are good! No cancer, no Crohns. We're still trying to get to the bottom (literally) of what is causing my issues, but right now it looks like it may be IBS or food allergies. Waiting on biopsies and bloodwork, but I'm resting with a little more ease. My paternal grandmother died from colon cancer, and while there's no direct link, these types of problems concern me. But praise to Him there wasn't even a single polyp, and I waited until this year (59) to have this done. My advice if you're on the fence, just bite the bullet and do it! My experience wasn't bad at all, even the prep was manageable, but then remember, I'm the girl who chews on garlic cloves to ward off colds! But seriously, from what I've been told the prep has improved in recent years. My doctor used Clenpiq and mine was cranberry flavored, not something I'd choose off the shelf to drink, but easily managed none the less. Find a doctor who uses it and get it done! It's worth it!

I found these seven promises on Instagram yesterday during my prep and wanted to keep them somewhee I would see them often, so I made up this little graphic and printed it out and put it in my bible. I won't link it to save space in my Google Drive (I REALLY need to clean it out!), but if you like it, you can click on the image and save it to your computer.

Thanks for updating with your news. I'm sorry you still don't have a diagnosis, but ruling out cancer and Crohns is certainly good news! Continued prayers that answers will come.

Thank you so much, Pam! It is good news and I so relieved. At least I know now that whatever it is, it is manageable.
