To the tune of Genealogy:

Colonoscopy I am doing it my colonoscopy,
and the reason that I am doing it is very clear to me!
Check around for polyps and any inconsistency.
Colonoscopy I am doing it for my fam-i-ly!

Aren't I good?

Friday 6:30 am at UVRMC, can't wait to fart in recovery like everyone else!

Everything turned out alright, had what they thought was a polyp so if it was I'll need to go back in five years, if it wasn't 10 years.

You know how I hate potty humor? Guess not Craig said every time I let one rip I laughed, must've thought it was funny!

Email From Bro. & Sis. Ellett

Received an email from Brother and Sister Ellett today along with some pictures of Benny. It was nice. The mission isn't moving fast enough for me. Maybe when I start school again tomorrow it'll get moving. I really appreciated hearing about Ben, nice to know someone cares about those of us left at home. It looks like he's doing well and that he's happy and that is big for me. Moms don't want to think of their loved ones sad. I'll post the pictures on his site once Katy shows me how.

Oh To Be A Woman!

Today was a first in line of many doctor visits for me. It was my beloved yearly today. I think I sweat more for the scales then the spectulem! I had my blood pressure taken, then weighed under much stress! Low and behold the nurse told me I had lost 8 lbs since my last visit, and it was totally painless! I don't know how I did it! Went into the office. Took off all my clothes, (and did a happy dance-NOT!) folded them nicely and placed them ever so gently in the chair. Wrapped that lovely gown on and tied it in front. Un-folded that big napkin thingy placed it ever so modestly on my lap, waited and wiped sweat off of my face, and out from under my breasties. Finally my doctor came in she gave me the check-up talked to me a bit, excused me and sent me on my merry way. But not before I made an appointment for a bone density test for tomorrow, and a colonoscopy in the near future. Went down to the lab gave my blood, thank goodness for good veins! Oh the joys of being in your fifties! It is so stressful but so nice to have over for a year. Mammo on Monday and Dentist on Wednesday and I'm good to go, except for that colonoscopy!
