As per the plan, I had a stomach scoping done this past Monday, September 30, 2002. Everything went according to plan. They knocked me out and did whatever they do. I’ve got no real news to post, since it takes around a week to get the biopsy results. But I have an appointment with my [...]
Well, it’s been about a month since there was an update at this site, and I’ll be surprised if anyone is checking it very regularly at this point! Basically, there hasn’t been too much to report.
