Out Of Commission

It has not been a very good day all round for me today.  I am still feeling poopy, "poopy" going to be the operative word very shortly.  Rob stay clear of the bathroom !

Dr. Caulfield's office called today.  I had told her I was getting over a cold of five days, and she never said that would affect me going for my procedures tomorrow.  She also told me it would be okay to take Sinus meds or antihistamine if need be.  I am going to try not to, as taking meds on an empty stomach does not go over well either.  The coughing has somewhat subsided, however my back is killing me from spending so much time in bed I am guessing.

Once you have gone over the Magic Age of 50 years it is time to have a Colonoscopy.  I have avoided it for the past 5 years.  Actually it is good to have, as Rob had cancerous polyps a couple of times.  The Stats on Colon Cancer are very High according to Dr Caulfield.  You can read more about that HERE.

Not having anything to eat is having its toll on me, and once the "mixture" begins working, I will be out of commission from now until almost until before the lunch hour tomorrow.

I truly wish I could be more funny about the situation, but truly I am not feeling well enough to right now.

  1. Hope all goes well and you get back to feeling well ! I had a E&C Endoscopy and Colonoscopy at the same time done years ago when I was then diagnosed with IBS . IBS hits me badly every now and then even though I watch what I eat as so many foods trigger it off ! Get well soon my friend !

  2. The preparation for that is worse than the actual procedure! It's kind of cool if you can stay alert for it. You don't usually get a chance to see your innards.

  3. Hopefully in forty eight hours things will be improving.

      The prep is the worst part. I have had two Colonscopies & had a pulp removed & not cancerous. I was put to sleep & woke up hungry.

  4. (((Cindy))) Hope it goes well & quickly my friend!! xo

  5. As above, the prep is the worst part. Due to family history it has been recommended that I have a colonoscopy every 5 years. Have had 2 and no problems found so far. Looking after ourselves from the bottom up!


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
