With the end of the year quickly approaching I finally have everything scheduled and barring any unforeseen circumstances, it will all be completed before the end of November!
I saw the Gastroenterologist today. She agreed that a colonoscopy would be a wise move. I have stopped fighting it and have scheduled for November 9. I have my instructions and my script and am SOOO looking forward to it, NOT!
I have scheduled the revision surgery for November 19th. I have to go for blood work sometime this week for that. I am hoping the recovery from this one is quick since Thanksgiving will only be a few days later.
Since the rest of the schedule fell into line today, the only other thing I needed to get onto the schedule was the pelvic ultrasound. As soon as I walked through the door I jumped on the phone and scheduled for November 7th. Two and a half weeks in November are looking pretty ugly but if all goes well, by the end of the month it will all be over!
In other interesting news, we on the east coast are preparing for Hurricane Sandy or the more fun name being given to the storm, “Frankenstorm”. They are saying it will be a 1 in 100 year storm. I am not right along the coast so no evacuations for my family but my sister lives on the coast. We may have a visitor over the weekend. If things align the way they think, we could be looking at over 10-12 inches of rain. possibly one heck of a mess! We ran to the store for extra milk, bottled water and batteries and a new lighter for candles.
Now I guess we just wait, for everything.

Best wishes to get you through this weekend AND the month of November!
Thank you! Everyone is being very cautious but I guess that is what I want just very tired of tests, surgery and doctors in general. How are you feeling?
This storm looks like it is going to be something! Fingers crossed!
I know what you mean! I’m tired of testing and screenings but with my genetic condition it’s going to be part of my life. I’m always going to be on guard and getting tested. BUT…YOU HAVE THIS! You can do this and actually…the colonoscopy is really cake. Really really. I hope things don’t hit you too hard (with the storm) and that you can stock up on necessary supplies to have some emergency preps on hand.
