Not Exactly My Idea of Fun, but
Monday, October 24, 2011
This is something I don't enjoy, but it is something worth doing.
Tomorrow is my colonoscopy exam.
Today I am drinking 64 ounces of apple juice with the prep stuff added to it.
At least it doesn't take as awful as it used to, and I really don't mind drinking it at all.
The results of drinking it...........well, that is another story that I will spare you. Most of you have probably gone through it and know what I mean.
This is not exactly my idea of Having FUN, but I do feel good about it.
After all, I am taking care of myself.
We learn to do stuff like this when we are active in Spark.
It's all about getting and keeping our bodies as healthy as possible.
Colonoscopies are not fun. But did you know that colon cancer is the SECOND most common causes of cancer deaths? Getting our exams done on a regular basis just may save our lives.
I'm not ready to check out yet. There is still too much living to do.
I have two things left on my Bucket List.
One is cruise through the Panama Canal, and the second is to visit the active volcano in Hawaii.
So, if I have to have this rather unpleasant experience to ensure I am doing whatever I can for my dear body, that's okay.
It just might save my life, and I am worth that.
Please, if you haven't already done so, check in with your Doc and see when you are due for your own life saving examination.
YOU ARE WORTH IT.
