I hope they get it all and you'll be okay.  Colonoscopies can be really 
helpful, though they're a pain to go through.  My doctor said there 
shouldn't be any more colon cancer now that they have colonoscopies, but 
some people who need to have them don't get around to it.  Congratulations 
on getting yours done!  Prayers going out for you!
