"The healthy and strong individual is the one who asks for help when he needs it. Whether he's got an abscess on his knee or in his soul."—Rona Barrett
I hope you've enjoyed my daily posts for nearly 5 months! I don't ask for much here, but today I'm asking for your good thoughts and wishes.
Today, at 2pm I have to go in for a colonoscopy. Nothing major, just a check up, so don't worry. However, my fasting experience I wrote about yesterday went from good to worse. The fasting part was fine, but the solution they give you to drink that is used to "clean" the colon, was not a pleasant experience. And there is A LOT of it to drink. Have you ever done anything like this?
I haven't and I'm kind of scared.
For the procedure they have to put me out. I've never been put out in my life! It's only for about an hour. Apparently I'll be awake, but will have little memory of the experience. That sounds a bit like hypnosis! ^_^
Anyway, I'm writing about it here for support because right now I need a little. I know it sounds kind of funny. It a common procedure, but I hardly ever visit the doctor, so for me it's pretty big.
My husband is going to drive me to the hospital at 1pm today and he'll remain there until I'm finished at around 3:30pm and drive me home.
I have to sign a consent form in case something happens. I know I will be fine, but I said to my husband this morning, "If I don't make it out, you can have all my clothes and my bicycle."
I was joking of course. He smiled and said, "You'll be fine and I love you."
And then he added, "And I'll enjoy riding your bicycle."
"Hey! Wait! What do you mean?" I asked, surprised.
"Just kidding!" he said.
I feel lucky to have a partner who makes me laugh and who I also know is there for me no matter what.
Thanks for being here, for commenting, for reading my posts and for all your support. I really appreciate it.
Have you ever undergone a medical procedure that required you to stay in the hospital? How did you feel?
