#27 this new thing is behind me

One of the joys of turning 50 is adding one more thing to the doctor's recommended test slate: the dreaded but very important colonoscopy. A big enough deal that its counts as a new thing, but really wasn't as bad as I had feared. A few days of preparation, a lot of anticipation, and a short procedure under anesthesia.

I don't remember a thing, and didn't even wake up to a room full of space aliens in a UFO.

But the best news is that I had normal results, no need to repeat this for another 10 years, and this new thing is done.

  1. HA! Excellent title for this new thing. I had to do a similar, less invasice procedure, by they didn't put me under. When people ask how it went, I just day "You haven't lived until you've seen the inside of your colon on closed circuit t.v."
