They moved my endoscope and my colonoscopy to tomorrow. What a wonderful night I am having tonight--

Got home from work to find a water main had just ruptured in front of my house.  Oh thrill.  Had to start the "prep" for the colonoscopy and then the doorbell rings telling me they are going to shut off the water while they work. My heat runs on water.  What a crappy night!  Figuratively and literally.

Oh, Tina, my heart goes out to you. Why does everything happen at once?! The good news is that you will get through this and you'll wake up and not remember a thing about either procedure. Wishing you the best for good results.

Tina and Elaine, I hope you both had good results today. Keeping my fingers crossed for you both. My endocsopy was at 7:30 and I was home by 9:30. I'm still a little loopy--or as I call myself when drugged like this, "Little Lupe." Anyway, my hernia is large--5 cm--but as long as I can manage the acid reflux, I'll leave it alone. There is a surgery to repair it, but even my GI guy said that I shouldn't have it unless things get worse. He removed several small polyps from my stomach and one the size of his thumb! He said he's never seen one that big (Proud hair toss, thumbs locked around my suspenders--I'm just too talented). I'll have the biopsy results in a week or two, but he wasn't terribly concerned.  I need to get some work done today, but it may not happen. Between not sleeping well and then being given all the drugs, I may not have the brain power. Lifetime Movie Channel, here I come! Hope every thing is OK with you all. Tina, let us know what happened today.

Yay! Rena -- Just go for the Lifetime Movie Channel it's sure to put you to sleep!

Me:  Both moles are nothing, but he will biopsy one cause I told him it always itches -- and he's being careful and conservative as he said -- that's ok with me!

Tina - Fill us in when you can.

Thank you Rena about my ct scan.

I hope Elaine that the biopsy result will show it isn't anything.  Rena, I hope when your results come back it proves to be b-9.

I hope your doing ok, Tina.  Post when you are able too.
