    Good News for Me

    I had the dreaded colonoscopy on Monday. Which meant that the starvation day was on National Ice Cream Day...lol

    The result, no biopsies were taken and I don't need to do it again for ten years. I'll be 71 when I need another round. Yay!

    After 25 years of dealing with arthritis and repeated shoulder surgeries culminating in replacement of both, I truly welcomed the good news.

    I was suppose dot get one for my annual this year, but did not because my doctor wants me to go to the Temple S and W clinic to get it done.Well, my wife no longer drives, and since I have done this a few times, I know a drive to Temple is simply out of the question. Heck, a drive to Seton would be bad enough lonesome style. I would tend to paint the interior of the car probably.

    Congrats! Man, there's been a solid group of people I know who have had this done in the past week.

    I am going to tell my Doctor that I will get one if he can get me an appointment at the old Metroplex. I have had one or 2 done there before, and they let you get it done without anesthesia. One of my odd quirks. One of the problems with that clinic is that the last time I scheduled one there, they waited almost a year to call me and try and schedule one. I declined, and my then doctor let me do it with a "mail in" test. They are supposedly not as accurate, but a reliable way to pre screen.

    Glad to hear the exit chute is in top notch condition. I will be 60 next year and so will the wife. I will ask for simultaneously completed colonoscopies on our birthdays on 4 and 5 August....maybe we can face each other.......

    Better than back to back, if they use the "Go litely" stuff. Talk about becoming one with the toilet. Better use a seatbelt.
