Before we link ourselves into cyberspace, let me update you on the medical news. The endoscopy went fine, and results are nothing to worry about, whew. I put together the facts and previous doctors’ comments and realized that the reason I had to have this third one is because the anesthetic used before, propofol (yay, google!), did not put me under enough. When the docs tried to biopsy the bulge in the duodenum, I apparently refused to lie still. Moving around made it difficult/impossible to get a good tissue sample. The procedure yesterday was under general anesthesia.
And now we return to our regularly scheduled

* In this case, “bulge” was a bit of stomach tissue that was living elsewhere than the stomach.The doc said it had probably been there since I was a fetus in my mother’s womb, and that it did not need to be removed.
Good news for you and a relief to hear.
Pure magic is right! A delightful morning starter!
I’m glad your medical issue was resolved peacefully!
Great outcome from your procedure and a big relief for you and all of us! I was gobsmacked at the story on how the Inuit teach emotional management to their children. It creates a kind living environment out where the outer weather can be so harsh.
I love that your phrase is that you “refused” to be still. Perfect.
