today’s list is very sad   14 comments

I must have a colonoscopy in a few hours, so I am sitting here, feeling very empty, thirsty and trying to just endure it.

Mom took niece C Monday evening so she would be able to have fun, rather than just sit around here while I endured the prep. That is a very good thing. It was a long afternoon and evening.

She is bringing her back today, and will take me over to the hospital. They will go have lunch and do some window shopping while I am there, then she will bring us both home. A is going to try to get out early to babysit me. Here are the instructions they gave me for today:

Coming in:
No hairspray
No makeup
No nail polish
No jewelry

Going home:
No driving
No sitting in the sun
No doing anything that requires judgement.

So I really have to wonder what on earth they are doing to me?

I typically don’t wear makeup, jewelry, nail polish, OR hairspray on my butt…

And I guess the drugs they are giving me would render me too dopey to know to either turn over or wear sunscreen. But as I am avoiding sun this summer anyway, that one is a moot point. Well, so are the makeup and hairspray – haven’t worn either in nearly 20 years… but the jewelry and toe nail polish are taken care of.

I think niece C is going to like the drugged me – as we play a game or two every evening – if I have no judgement, she should be able to beat me easily!

Can’t wait for supper tonight…..

  1. Sending hugs. xxxx Hope all is ok.

  2. The things they put us through. I DO NOT like doctors. I will never leave them anything in my will. They will probably find nothing. I have been there and done that. I feel for you.

  4. Good luck.

  5. It is an ordeal, isn’t it? I hope that dinner time comes soon as I know you are hungry.

  6. Hoping you make a quick recovery and every result is positive. All is well, my friend.

  7. Hope it’s over and done now & you’re ok. You made me laugh with the not wearing make-up, jewelry, hairspray or nail varnish on your butt. Xx
