The latest

  1. Hi friends. Today wasn't half bad. I took my PEDS test that I didn't even study for,and only missed two. So I'm pretty pleased with that. Mom on the other hand had to spend the day drinking Golytely for her you guessed it troops:The dreaded colonoscopy scheduled for tomorrow. There trying to find out if there's any internal bleeding going on. Plus our Dr. wants to meet me at his office tomorrow at 5:00 pm to discuss my mom's condition and what he thinks is the problem. She's in fairly good spirits,and there's been no sign of confusion so far. Praise God! Wish us luck. Love you all. Warrior Woman.

    Good news, Theresa! Poor Mom-that Golytely stuff is naaasssty, I think. One thing for sure, it gives a good clean work surface! LOL!

    Brace yourself, in case your Mom has polyps or growths in her bowel. They may be malignant, or may not be. They may be curable, or they may not be. Believe me, I am not trying to be cruel, or hurt your feelings, Theresa; I just don't want you to get your hopes way up, and have them come crashing down. Let us know what you all find out.

    I'm so glad the doc wants to actually discuss the situation with you! Step in the right direction! Hope the colonoscopy goes well and remember, she might have some confusion after due to sedation. Doesn't mean it is permanent. Try to write down your questions for the doc ahead of time in case he goes off track or rushes you. I suggest it to every patient and their family and most are grateful that they did (the docs never are!!! I also sometimes give them questions to ask and other questions to ask if the doc answers in a certain vague way). I'll be thinking about both of you tomorrow. Good luck and hang in there and great job on the test!!!!!
