Lazy Day

Well it's been a pretty lazy day for me! I went in yesterday and had my 1st colonoscopy..Have you had your's yet? If I can do it, so can YOU! I kept putting it off since I turned 50, gosh I'm getin old! Was actually not all that bad. The prepping was the hardest part, as you can imagine. The procedure went without a hitch. The out patient clinic was AWESOME! Everyone was very helpful and accomidating to us. I had to bring my own lift to get me from chair to gurny but that's ok. The nurses let us do what we needed to, right down to even moving the bed to get me into it. I mentioned to Pat, my nurse, that I was a hard stick and she said she wouldn't even attenpt to put the IV in then, she's let the anesthesia doctor do it. KOOL BEANS! When he looked he found a good vein, or he thought moved when he stuck the needle in. I barely felt it. He had to look on my left arm, right above where it had been broken so the skin was a tad more tender...1 stick and it was in..good to go! They got me on my side, all comfy, put in the sleepy juice but I stayed awake long enough to ask Dr. Landan for a copy of the film to put on Youtube...eveyone got a laugh out of that(was just joking of course)! Next thing I know, I'm waking up an hr later all done! I did get some great photos of my colon and he said all is clear but I did have 1 tiny polyp he cut out and sent out to be biopsied so we're good to go for another 5 yrs or so! Have you all had your's done yet?? PLEASE be sure and get your's if you haven't already! Better to be safe than sorry! If I, who is paralized and in a wheelchair can find a way to get mine done , than you can too!

Finally Friday!

Woo Hoo! It's finally Friday! This week went really fast! I have been doing PT for my right shoulder all week in hopes we can get it loosned up so I have full range of motion again! It neever has worked right since I was hurt, 6 yrs ago! Ortho doc seems to think it's just frozen but Cory, my PT guy, thinks it's something else. He's been putting a 10's unit on it, then deeeeep massaging it and some minor range of motion of exercising. I have 3x's a wk for 6 wks approved to go so we'll see what happens at the end of those 6 wks. If no improvement I'm going for another MRI and a 2nd opinion. My family practice doctor seems to think it may have been broken or cracked when I was hurt and they never caught it. I can feel a sharp pointy area when I lay on my left side and while sitting at the desk so that leads me to think something isn't quite right even tho the ortho doc said it looks fine. Hmmm...
The weekend is here! Yeah! Too hot to do much outside tho! Temps have been hovering at 112 all week...ick! Welcome to Phoenix they say! Ahh but it's a dry heat! Yeah, so is an oven!
Jayson's school is trying to win $10,000 from Big Lots! I guess they have some contest going for schools, so he and a cpl of his friends went yesterday to help shoot the commercial! He got a part in it! I'm going today and see it...should be good...keep your fingers crossed we win!
