Well done you!
I am not a praying person but you were in my thoughs last night.
I had the word 'NO' in my mind all of yesterday as you were waiting. It must have affected the outcome of your condition but it sure as hell did'nt have any influence over the outcome of Ireland's Lisbon Treaty vote.
Anyway, I hope the light gets brighter from this point on!!

Mike, my apologies -- I'm always late for the show; just saw your thread today.
Man, that's the fastest I EVER read through a thread, finding the good news on Page 6. very glad it's not pancreatic cancer!!
I wish you and family the very best, and I feel strongly you'll kick Crohne's adz the same way you have anything else. Having lived in both northern Utah and Anchorage area, I can tell you that I'm somewhat envious ...... what a grand adventure!! Soon, you'll be able to get REAL beer and not just in one place either.
P.S. I couldn't leave your flag count at 66...... not in these times!

Overwhelmed is too small a word for all your support and notes.
Sorry I haven't had time to respond to all your posts, will try. I had to log off, and make breakfast for the little one.
And I got the call.
It's not pancreatic cancer.
It's Crohns Disease.
Have to look it up, and find out more. Meeting with specialists on monday and tuesday for further tests, treatment options and a chat with the surgeon.
But it looks like I'm going to be around longer. Maybe ATS helped! Next time, pray harder, dammit! I didn't want Crohns either.
Thank you thank you thank you all.
