where I've been

Oh, hi. Just came by to dust off my blog.

I've been wearing my "if it's not one thing it's another" t-shirt for the past few weeks. Yep, I WAS recovering well and then suddenly got hit with a new complaint that may or may not be related to all the other stuff. Let's just say I've been having, um, digestive irregularities since mid-February. Things have gotten much better, but they are still not quite right. Every had a colonoscopy? I had one for the first time last Tuesday. Tons of fun, I tell you. I find out the results next week and I'm thinking there could be two possible outcomes: 1) something harmless that will eventually go away by itself, or 2) ulcerative colitis. Ugh. Which one would you choose?

Anyway, I'm not feeling that bad, but I'm also not feeling that good energy-wise. I do have some nice pictures of Denmark to show you so I'll be getting to that later on today, OK?

Oh, Christina, I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope you get some answers soon and that it's #1 -- #2 doesn't sound fun at all.

Oh yes, Christina. I had my routine one done this past December. Since they put me out and it was over before I knew it, it's one time I can honestly say the prep drinks (and aftermath) were totally worse than the procedure!

I have my fingers crossed that it will show what the real problem is!!

I'm hoping for all the best for you, Christina. Yes, I have had one of those unpleasant procedures done to my lower body (the one to clean everything out for an operation), by a twenty-something female showing a very young man how to do it! No point in feeling embarrassed about it, but did she have to talk him through it so I could here it? How many litres? For how long? Siiiigh!

Feel better and get back to blogging! I've missed you!

Yup, been there done that. The worst is the purge, the rest not so much. They knocked me out for it and I got the results right away. Now two years later I'm having similar issues as you (I think) and I have to have another one. Trying to squeeze it in between all the other crap (pun intended) will be a stretch. Glad your better and back...ciao:)

Ever had a colonoscopy? Why yes. Yes I have. The doctor even asked me did I want to *watch*, for sheesh sakes of all the things in the world, why would I want to watch that? *urp*

I'm putting my bet on harmless. All the best to you and KUP. Hope you're feeling perky in the meantime!

Oh Lordy. I prescribe some time in the city of Antwerp for you :) Seriously though, if you want to run away any old time, we would love to have you come stay.

Good luck.
