Well, I thought they were just going to cram me in that big metal tube and force me to lie still. I had no idea they were injecting dye in one arm and giving me a shot to relax my stomach and bowel muscles in the other.
First my earrings went flying, because they're metal, not silver. Wild.
Then I lie there listening to some tunes (Michelle Branch, Daniel Bedingfield, etc.) while the machine makes sounds like alien ray guns, jackhammers and other not-so-nice devices.
It took about an hour. I flushed all over (especially in the groin!) from the dye, and then when my bowel muscles woke up, I had a little problem at work. Supposedly this particular drug also screws with your blood sugar, so I was not feeling that good. I ended up going in for my teeth cleaning and getting turned away because I refused to take the pre-meds. I've had enough foreign crap in my body, thanks.
Anyway, hopefully this test will determine finally when and if I have surgery. I'm tired of being poked and prodded at this point.
At 6:30 tomorrow morning Ligaya and I take off for Florida! I'm nearly finished with my presentations -- just a few more notes to make.
For Ryan ryan_beaches
: I loved it during the Carson Daly roast ("MTV Bash") when Madonna was showing photos of all the girls Carson had boffed, and one of them was Ryan Seacrest! I think her comment was, "For sure he's done her." I thought of you immediately!
For Deb debrajoy
: Hope you enjoyed Justin and Christina! Don't know if I'll see them again in Florida or not, but I'm glad I saw them here in Portland.
For Nik nk_seashore
: Thanks for the good thoughts, and thank your mom for me, too. Back 'atcha both! Everything's going to be fine, I know!
'See' ya'll when I get back!
