Well, the dreaded colonoscopy is over. I think I am done with medical tests for awhile. It has been such a year of it all. I try not to focus on it and am so thankful that the doctors have been able to keep me healthy. We shall see what the results of this test will be shortly. I have to admit that I am nervous.
My sweet daughter Gina left me a fun package to open when it was all over. She called it.."The Post Poo Pampering Package"! So fun.
It was filled with all kinds of fun good smelling things for ladies. New products for the old mama to try. I was so thrilled with all the goodies.
I came through the test just fine. The prep is barbaric as far as I am concerned. The drugs they give you during the test are great and you wake up refreshed. I did fine and am doing fine, until night time. So I guess I am one of the ones that it takes longer to bounce back...sigh. No sleep for the past two nights. I tried some different eating patterns today but if I have another night of tummy aches, I will call the doctor in the morning.
It's been so hot here. We hit another 90 degree day and the forest fires continue up the gorge from our home. People are still evacuated after a week. We have a lot of ash to still clean up on our cars, BBQ's, lawn furniture...it's amazing. We finally saw blue sky on Saturday after a week of grey skies.
I feel so bad for people closer to the fire. Fires, floods, hurricanes and earthquakes. It's been a difficult time for people. It warms your heart to hear of stories of people helping people.
Isn't it hard to believe that it's been 16 years since 911? A day will be always remember.
