A Praise and a rug to share

I would like to thank all those who gave me well wishes and prayers for my colonoscopy today. My husband took the day off to take me and I was the first appointment of the morning. I made it through yesterday. I do have to say that the woman from the office that called me on Tuesday gave me a great suggestion on taking the prep. I will share it with you because it seemed to be much more tolerable than in the past. I know all preps are different, depends on the doctor you have. I only had to take the fleet phospho soda. That in itself was different than my last doctor. I had to take something else along with that the last 2 times, and I was totally useless the entire day. Anyway, I had to take a tablespoon at a time with 8 oz of liquid 20 minutes apart. There were only 3T per bottle. The other bottle got done 12 hours apart which I only took half of because I was already clear and the doctor said if I was, I didn't have to take it all. I took the tablespoon of liquid and flung it to the back of my throat so it didn't touch my tongue. Mind you, it was still awful, but soo much more tolerable than mixing it in the liquid. Then I just drank my ice cold gingerale down after that. So anyone that has to do one of these, that is my suggestion to try.

Anyway, the test was polyp free and clear. I don't have to go back for another 5 years. What a Praise!! They gave me a paper with a list of places to eat on it. They gave discounted coupons to go out and have some breakfast. Or I could have gone anytime. But George and I went out for some breakfast afterwards. Man, was that ever good!!!

I was able to get a little done yesterday. Wasn't lethargic like I was in the past. I finished whipping Mr. Iggy. My friend Vicki saw him on Maria's site and said she had to have him. It's not as bright in person as the picture shows. She even bought the magazine and handed it to me and said I want that! Just have to label him now Vicki!! I also started a punch needle pattern that my friend Beth had given me for my birthday. Got it almost done. It's a squirrel. Just have the background to do. Will work on that this afternoon. I'm not sure if I'm going to frame it, or make it into a pillow or pinkeep. I'll post it when I'm finished.
That's my update for today. Again, thanks for the prayers. They mean the world to me...

Whew! Glad that everything went smooth today Kathy! Tests can be very nerve wracking and the prep for THAT test is so uncomfortable... Mr. Iggy hooked up just wonderful! :-)
