Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the good wishes, encouragement, support and prayers yesterday. You guys ROCK. I can honestly say that knowing you were all thinking about me made such a difference in my approach to the whole procedure.
Those of you who said it’s no big deal were absolutely right. The IV went in quickly and nearly painlessly. I was able to knit the whole time while I waited for my turn and the staff at the Endoscopy Center got a real kick out of that. It really did keep me relaxed and comfortable. And I got quite a bit done on my sock since there were 2 people ahead of me! The procedure went quickly and I was sent home with a lovely souvenir photo of my colon. Isn’t that special? And – get this – I don’t have to do this again for 5 years. Woo and also Hoo, people.
I ate a big old baked potato (one of my favorite comfort foods) when I got home and then I spent the afternoon on the couch, napping a little, knitting a little, napping a little more. Blogless Sharon came by to check on me and tell me that they had already received my results (normal) at the office. Hannah came home from school and offered her own teenage version of tea and sympathy, which basically amounted to asking if I was going to live or not. I’m not sure if she got the answer she was hoping for. Heh. And when Dale got home he made dinner – grilled cheese and vegetable soup – and it was yummy and comforting. Mmmmm.
He also stopped and got me tulips on his way home. Aren’t they beautiful?
And, while Dale is a wonderful guy and husband, he never brings me flowers for no reason so this was really very sweet.
But if he thinks this gets him off the hook for Valentine’s Day, well, he’s got another thing coming.
