Valerie, Meet your Colon. Colon, meet Valerie

Today was the colonoscopy. Supposed to be in Trussville at 6:15 AM. Unfortunately the alarm was set to PM rather than AM. I jumped out of bed at 5:55 AM, yelled at Chris, we ran around the house trying to brush our teeth and throw some clothes on and finally ran out the door. Chris was flying on the highway and we were only 15 minutes late.

So the whole colonoscopy is actually no big deal. I was totally knocked out and don't remember a thing. I remember the doctor coming in and talking to me for a minute, I remember the nurse saying "I'm going to give you your medicine now" and that's all I remember. I don't even remember getting my clothes back on, I don't remember the car ride home and I don't remember going to sleep in the guest room when we got home (the plumber was here today installing the new bathroom faucets so I slept off the anesthesia upstairs. He could have used a jackhammer to install the faucets, it wouldn't have mattered; I was out like a light.). I slept until 2 PM and then slept again from around 3:30 to 5:30 PM. Yesterday was much, much worse. Drinking that nasty stuff was horrible and not eating anything but lemon jello and chicken broth made me very weak and tired. So the good news is that the colonoscopy showed nothing. The doctor told Chris they did take a piece to do a biopsy. So I'll call the office tomorrow and find out what's going w/ the catscan, the blood work, the colonoscopy, etc.

That's about it in a nutshell KJ spent last night w/ a friend and they went to the library today while I was sleeping. T spent the night w/ a friend and tonight is a b-day sleepover. Peace & quiet in the house tonight.

Tomorrow the back splash is supposed to be fixed and then the bathroom will be all done!!! Yippee!!
