Still Driving By

We’re back from Baltimore. What a fun place that is!! We’re going to have to go back when we have more time. I’ll post pictures later.

Thank you for the prayers. Dad’s tests went well. What we know at this moment is that he has a bleeding ulcer and a large colon polyp. The doctor tried to get the whole polyp but was unsuccesful. What we don’t know yet is if he will require further surgery and if the polyp is benign or malignant. We should find out more this next week.

I’m so tired my head is numb. Seriously. My face is numb and my brain is numb. (No jokes, please.) So I’m going to go take a nap and sleep some feeling back into my noggin.

    Glad your dad’s tests went ok and you had a great time in MD! We went to Annapolis last week and had yummy food, bright sunshine, and such a good time too. It’s a fun place to spend the day if you’re looking for shore but not beaches, and you don’t mind driving a little farther than Baltimore.I want to hear all about your Baltimore fun!

    Did you get to an Orioles game? My husband will be so envious…and so will I, to be honest! Perhaps you will tell us what you did in a future post?Praying for your whole family. 🙂
