Saturday night I (and Louise) was invited out to dinner to celebrate “Fathers Day”. Mikleane is a bachelor-ette this week while the rest of the family is visiting Texas, so it was just the three of us. I really enjoy the food at PJ Chang so when asked where I wanted to go… Again, I wasn’t disappointed. Sunday, Fathers Day, I started with the process of getting ready for Mondays colonoscopy so that’s why we enjoyed dinner on Saturday. Early Sunday morning I took two little pills and just sat back and waited for nature to take action…all day long you’ve just got to stay close. 6am this morning I was up and started with my next step before going into the hospital later in the afternoon. As all of you know that have had to drink the full bottle of Halflytely/Golytely, things really get going now.
A fortunate distraction this morning is the play-off between Rocco Mediate and Tiger Woods. With Tiger having the bad knee and not playing up to his “norm” and Rocco playing pretty well for his position in the world’s standings, it’s making a pretty interesting match.
Well we’re back… I can’t believe how easy that was. We were asked to be there an hour early so I walked into the front desk at 2:45, checked in, immediately called back to visit with one of the nurses, answered a few questions, and was given my beautiful gowns…one for the front and one for the back. About 10 minutes later my doctor walked to introduce herself, making me feel comfortable, and looking beautiful (a very good looking young lady). I was then asked to follow her back to another room where I was asked to lie down on. An IV was inserted into my hand and…. I was sleeping so hard when Louise told me it was time to head back home and we’ll make something for dinner. Boy, that was something I would love to have available on some of those nights when I find it tough to get to sleep!!!
