Ob-Gyn and Colonoscopy!! Fun Times Ahead!

Today is a new day! This is the only day that counts!

Today, I am off to the gynecologist for all the annual check-up stuff.  At least I really like my doctor.  She is great.  I started seeing her the first month she started her practice, so we have become fairly close.  I still don't want to get on the scale there, though.  I think I am up 10 pounds from the last time I went in.  That always makes me feel like a failure.

They called today for me to schedule my appointment for a colonoscopy.  I am past due on getting one, so I need to make the appointment.  I am sure it is worse in my mind than the actual procedure.  I have read that the prep for it is the worst part.  I don't really want to do that either.  I am going to get it soon, though.  I took my husband for his last year, and he didn't complain too much.  My doctor told me he wasn't too concerned that I had any real issues since I seem to be keeping my weight up.  Yeah, thanks, doc!!

I am so tired of this weather.  It is getting down to 18 degrees at night and barely making it to the 30's during the day.  Average temps this time of year should be in the 50's.  What the heck is going on?  Where is my spring weather?


  1. Just when I thought I had it bad with the weather here..we are actually getting some sunshine. I will keep my fingers crossed that you get some nice weather soon Betty! And good luck with your appointments.

  2. It really isn't all that bad---you read my post about my colonoscopy appt.---the worst id definitely the prep day but as long as you're near a bathroom, you'll be OK! Seriously, the procedure is NOTHING. And food has never tasted so good as the day after when you can eat again!

  3. LOL at the picture.

    Our weather's still cold here too. PHft to the cold.

  4. Yikes! Love the pic though. I hope it goes well!!
