My first colonoscopy [Oct. 22nd, 2007|02:27 pm]
-Larry-
[Tags|, ]

Just to let everyone know that I am scheduled for my FIRST Colonoscopy THIS Thursday (the 25th) at Noon!

This is simply a test, but your thoughts and prayers at that time are most welcome.

BTW: It was three years ago THIS month that Brenda had hers and we found out she had Colon Cancer.

When it comes your time DON'T PUT IT OFF - GET YOURSELF TESTED!

Medical Procedures

Will be sending good thoughts on Thursday as you go into your procedure. Even though they all say its just a test, it still pays to be vigilant.

Don't give the nurses a hard time...well too hard a time.

Re: Medical Procedures

Thanks.

The procedure will be performed in the doctor's office and I will try and not give his nurse a hard time - if I and help it ;-)

Yes I know everything will be ok, it's just that it's my first time doing this test and of course the 20th just happened to have been the the Anniversary of when Brenda had her test (it was done in 2004) and you know the rest of the story.

Okay, that qualifies as a good reason, lol.

Used the icon again, just to restate what I said earlier, :P

Thanks. It was a 1024 letter mailing. I got it all out over the weekend.


Thanks for all the *hugs* I need them. The "fun" already started at 6PM when I needed to take 20 pills in an hour. Then the "real fun" started at 9:45.

BTW: I have 12 pills I need to take btw 8A and 9 I need to take 12 more.

*HUGS*

Gosh, that sucks. You are way stronger than I am. It was like that when I was in the hospital in February.

I can't say that I didn't give 'em a hard time, either, lol.

Well this procedure is in the doctor's office but I guess I will be given them a hard time when I get there ;-)

Oh the pills this morning was 12 within a half-hour.

I should be leaving here by 11 or so. The Dr. office is only in Forest hills so it will not take me long to get there.

Hah! I'm leaving for work in a bit, so we might run into each other (the fact that we live so close to each other still amuses me). What part of Forest Hills?
