A TRIP DOWN A DIFFERENT KIND OF MEMORY LANE...


Finally went for the doctor's appointment that every woman hates to go to, on Friday...


And I now have to go through a really CRAPPY procedure AGAIN...



COLONOSCOPY - A direct visualization of the large intestine



Bowel cancer runs in the family and my IBS makes me a prime target!



It's a toss up between the actual procedure or the "cleansing" leading up to the procedure, on which is worse!



For 2 days you get to live next to the toilet then take a 45 minute drive on crappy roads to the hospital for your test.



The other part is the nausea after the test due to an adverse reaction ]happens ever time] to the anesthetic.



No wonder I waited so long to see this doc!



He finally saw that there might be more than a strained/inflamed muscle and noticed that the kidney was tender to the touch....



Means more blood work to be done and an ultra sound done on the kidney...





Wedding decor update...


Future couple finally made it to finalize the decor and take the larger stuff back to Coronation with them...




Which just happened to be in another thunder/lightning episode this afternoon!




Loading up their truck was exciting and we got soaked! The river ran deep as usual past my place so we had to stand in it. Their big dog was terrified of the thunder and kept wanting to hide in the house.


It was hard to believe that it was 38 yesterday with not a cloud in the sky...



And wouldn't you know it...as soon as they drove away it got nice again...?




Hope they made home safely....not to mention the CARDBOARD decor?



I have to get back to painting the goblets they dropped on me while they were at it....

That is one horrible procedure. I, like you, am not sure which is the worst, before or during! So, how are you doing now?
