I Want a Colonoscopy for Christmas!
Now, doesn't that just have a ring to it? And no, I'm not talking about me. I'm talking about hubby. We spent the whole morning at the hospital while he had a colonoscopy. His older brother had an appointment at 12:00. Lots of preventative testing being done since the brother who is my age had the big C diagnosis. I have to admit that I knew there would be a little humor with the measures taken prior to the procedure (I'll leave it to your imagination what they make you go through to clear everything out!), but I didn't know he would be quite so loopy coming out of the anesthesia. At first he couldn't put words together and only one of his eyes was open. That part was a little scary cause I've never seen him like that. Then as his speech slowly got a little better he got downright silly! At one point he looked up at me and said, "My wife has a purse just like that." I thought he was kidding, but undoubtedly his vision was still blurry and he thought I was the nurse! After he finally became coherent, he asked when the doctor was coming by. I told him he had already been by and he had actually talked to him (although his speech was hardly clear!). After a long morning, the doctor told us he did remove a tiny polyp but he wasn't worried; he has had similar polyps removed himself. It was sent to pathology to be safe. My brother in law should be finishing up his procedure as we speak so hopefully he got similar results!
