Daniel 3:17-18 "If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up."
That's what I was told when I woke up from anesthesia following my colonoscopy. The official report reads, "A polypoid non-obstructing large mass was found in the distal rectum." Yeah, I had to look up distal too. It means the furthest part, or in my case down near the bottom of the poop shoot, the end of the line. OK. So I have a malignant, two-inch tumor in my butt. That makes me a rectal cancer survivor since my diagnosis on Friday morning, July 30, 2010.
