Pot at the End of The Rainbow


Friday, June 27, 2014



My good Spark Friend SHAKESALOT is a big fan of rainbows. She posted an incredible picture of a double rainbow once. I was driving down to the VA hospital on Wednesday afternoon/early evening and the sky had those bruised colored clouds and it looked like rain off in the distance.

I was on my way down to have a colonoscopy. I won't bore you with the gory details but since it's 210 miles from where I live I drive down and get settled into a motel before I begin to drink the "prep"-which nothing ever really prepares you for. I was worried. Something is wrong with my gut. They've ruled out several things I thought might be the culprit so because the last ultrasound and CAT scan were 'iffy' they decided to do the colonoscopy again.

Suddenly, straight ahead of me, there was a break in the clouds and there was just a portion of a rainbow showing through. It was NOT raining. It was just a beautiful section of rainbow that left me feeling at peace with whatever happens. I continued on my trip feeling much more relaxed and thinking I had to make sure and let SHAKES know that I saw a rainbow worthy of a photo but no camera with me. And I laughed thinking of where I was going to be in about 45 minutes...and it was on the pot at the end of that rainbow!

Went well as could be expected. It showed that the mesh that was used in my hernia repair has shifted a bit and is rubbing and irritating the intestine so won't be a big thing to repair. No rainbows on the way home, but sure felt much better and about 5 pounds lighter!!

    Glad that they found out what is causing the issue. When will you be having the repair done? I hope all goes well.

    I AM SO HAPPY THAT THE PROBLEM IS IDENTIFIED AND NOT A MAJOR CONCERN. I WAS WONDERING WHY YOU WERE HAVING THIS ONE DONE, SINCE YOUR LAST ONE WAS NOT THAT LONG AGO!!!

    I will have to admit that this blog did wonders for my adament refusal to have a colonoscopy OR surgical repair of my hernia.

I stopped breathing after a knee replacement years ago and would not be writing this had a nurse not wandered into my room!!!

  Glad that your test was successful!
I just received my reminder card that my colonoscopy is due again...
That prep product ( and a full container of Miralax ) takes away 5 pounds.
Loved the rainbow!

    I've had several colonoscpies in the last 10 years or so. The worst part is always the prep. Yuckers. Glad it can be fixed fairly easily!
