Day 248 – Thankful for Support from Friends and Family Through Awkward Medical Stuff

Tonight has been interesting to say the least!  While I got a clean bill of health from my physical my doc ordered up a colonoscopy due to some family health history.  As you can imagine, I cringed and was pretty nervous about what to expect in this process.  It’s not one of those things that you typically feel comfortable talking about…  But I’m a red headed stepchild (twice over!) and there’s very little that makes me too uncomfortable! 😉

Yup, I drank it our of a Perry the Platypus cup…  the dude’s never let me down!

Over the past few days I’ve been very fortunate to have more than a handful of people helping me out with sharing stories, answering awkward questions, and setting my expectations.  Without all of these insights and stories I would have been flying blind into this, and it would have been much more nerve wracking.  There’ve also been more and stronger personal connections made through this.7A89BF63-6E68-4503-915D-9E3FE1A53FC3-3617-00000180043AE485.jpeg

I’m especially thankful for everyone who’s made me laugh!  Even as the goLYTELY was coursing through me there’ve been more than a couple of times that my full belly laugh came out…  causing more issues…  causing even more laughing!  This hasn’t been the most pleasant experience so far (and I hear the best is yet to come!), but it has been made much more bearable and, in some ways, pretty damn humorous!  http://youtu.be/qMmMvh1hSN4

Bonus thank you to Becky for putting up with the truly sexy beast I am tonight!  She’s taking one for the team and coming with me tomorrow.  Thanks Babe!

While I am certainly ready to get this over with, I’m thankful for the support of so many friends and family.  You guys are the best!!!

Thanks!!!
