We are all adults, so don’t be embarrassed by this post.

I continue to lose weight. Perhaps it’s due to my worrying about my health predicament, but I suspect it’s mostly from watching true horror movies like McCain and Palin, and worrying about ONE of the two house investments my 4 brothers and I have in Costa Mesa, California. I will share with you in another post what has happened, and why it happened.


I’ve somehow managed to keep the weight in my legs intact, but my trunk section, including my boobies are quickly becoming smaller, damn it! If I should ever die, and I don't plan on doing that any time soon, I want to be cremated in this leather outfit (panties are leather, too! If you don't believe me, touch them - RAWR!), and have my ashes scattered in whatever part of the world, EXCEPT Wasilla, Alaska! :o)

My medical issues are still in limbo. I’ve had so many different specialist appointments since October that I’m seriously all confused. I’ve been poked with needles for blood tests, and every nick and cranny has been examined, except for my rear end, but that part of my body won’t escape inspection either, because on Monday I’ll be having a colonoscopy. Starting tomorrow, I’ll be on a clear liquid diet. Thank God I have Aetna insurance, which pays 100% for everything, plus prescription. I do have to pay anywhere from $15.00 to $30.00 per prescription. It breaks my heart for those families who have no insurance at all! Hopefully this will change when Obama becomes our President!

I am so blessed, because I am loved by my 3 best girl friends and boss. I won’t be able to drive back home after the procedure on Monday because I’ll be drugged up. My girl friends can’t take me because they have to work, but my boss doesn’t since he owns the company, so he has offered to take me, and wait as I’m being dissected (sob!) so he can drive me back to my house, where Grandpa, and my oodles of pets will be waiting with open arms, and PAWS for me! :o) I have no idea how long I’ll feel the after affects of the sedation, but will make a post as to what I went through! :o(

All the tests I’ve had have come out negative, but the doctors want to know if I have polyps in my colon, as I have in my uterus, before scheduling me for surgery.

It’s funny that I’ve never in my life had to go to a doctor for anything serious, except for that time when I was stationed in Korea.

Cancer runs in both my dad’s and mom’s family, so I hope everything will turn out negative, including this tumor I have right next to my right ovary.

Most of you know that my Dad has prostrate cancer, and since the majority of my LJ friends are male, I again want to remind you to go for that examination, just to make sure you’re ok.

For those of you who have never heard of Colorectal Polyps and Cancer, here’s a link to better educate you on the subject.

Marilyn mistressmarilyn had to go in for a colonoscopy -- right after a friend had done so, only to discover she DID, indeed, have cancer. Thankfully, Marilyn did not. But it's a good thing to get the test and be sure.

I'm wishing you the best with ALL your tests. The colonoscopy is actually not bad (Marilyn's had it done twice -- they give you very good drugs), so hopefully it won't be an awful experience for you.

Hang in there!

(hugs)

I'm so happy Marilyn's test came out negative!

Thank you for the best wishes, and I will try to hang on because I have so much more to go through!
Hugs Sweety Pie!

My will and energy will be directed to your need. Quantum neuroscience is proving that positive thought does create physical change so keep them up for yourself by all means.

A clear liquid diet? Yikes...

I love you...

Yes, clear liquids! No food tomorrow, only clear broth, any color but red sugar free Jello (why? do they expect me to bleed to death?!!), apple juice which I can't have, sodas, and this 4 liters of this UGGY looking liquid that I'm suppose to drink in 3 hours!!! Save me Ayoub!

I love you, too.

I wish bad things didn't happen to such good people. Seems every gentle, caring soul I know has some form of medical problem or another.

I'm rooting for you all the way, my friend.

Thank you so much. I know you'll be rooting for me. I'll have to ask you to do it again, when I go through the surgery that still awaits me at some unknown date.

Bear hugs!

I have had a colonoscopy, turned out good, no problems. I was up and going again within 2 hours of the procedure with almost no discomfort.

Good Luck little one... You are in my prayers and good wishes.

Ayi Daddy, I don't want people poking me back there! It's not fair!

Thank you dearest for your prayers. I believe in the power of prayer. I have to.

sending you lots of pink light xox

I feel for your distress :-(

I'm rarely afraid of anything, but I must admit I am afraid of the unknown, and the things which there's no control of.

Thank you for the pink light, and I'll let you know when I'll ask for it again. I still have a future date for surgery, and for the results of that surgery, too. I feel that by November, I'll know exactly what's what.

Thank you so much!

The prep is the worst, but once past that the actual procedure is a piece of cake. Good drugs they give you. I have had several of them already.

My prayers will be with you sweetie.

How I wish I didn't have to go through it! I don't want Monday to come!

Thank you for your prayers Sweet Pie, and I'll tell you when to start praying again.
