why do you need to put the test in quotes? just because you need to have 4 more than he does for some reason it makes it less uncomfortable for him?


i can imagine the paranoia waiting for those test results. good news eric!:thumb:

I have no idea where I am
Several years ago I made a ring for a guy who's fingers were so big I had to use a tape measure to size him. At 3.5in in circumference, the ring looked like a napkin ring. It took a great deal of restraint to not say something about what a happy woman his wife must have been.

So this means your solid on this test for ten years now right?

I will do one of these tests every other year in the interim

Fecal occult blood test (FOBT)— This test checks for hidden blood in fecal material (stool). Currently, two types of FOBT are available. One type, called guaiac FOBT, uses the chemical guaiac to detect heme in stool. Heme is the iron-containing component of the blood protein hemoglobin. The other type of FOBT, called immunochemical FOBT, uses antibodies to detect human hemoglobin protein in stool (13–15). Studies have shown that FOBT, when performed every 1 to 2 years in people ages 50 to 80, can help reduce the number of deaths due to colorectal cancer by 15 to 33 percent (13–15).
