Feeling a little less in the woods.....

Yee haw!

So, had Brennon's GI follow up yesterday. All the "bad" tissue is G.O.N.E.  Like, seriously gone. Like, the condition has reversed itself. Like, we went from BAD, very BAD, to pretty good.  He's not out of the woods.  Tissue and cellular changes lead to cancer, eventually and every time.  He has to make this esophagus last for another 85+ years, so the changes constantly need to be monitored.  His surgery fixed alot of it, but, not all of it and we've been walking on eggshells for a while now.

BUT- for now, he simply has an inflamed esophagus.  And we're switching meds to hope that he'll eventually be free of inflammation and reflux. Either way, he'll be scoped and biopsied yearly- for the rest of his life.  I can't say what what 2023 will hold, but TODAY, we're good and I am thrilled with that fact.
