Post-Colonscopy Grecian Vision of Health

I admit it.  I was terrified.  All through the night, the rocket fuel fired me like roman candle balls at all angles in the tiled bathroom.  There was little sleep.  There was shock and awe.  But then, at the clinic, I was attached to some drip bag and fed a delicious mood enhancer, which caused me to remember how beautiful the world really is.  As the doctor did his best, I dreamt of green hillocks and running barefoot among the free-range sheep.  When I awoke, I looked in the mirror and this is what I saw:

Andy Sturdevant's Venus

Thanks to the doctors and nurses of the Mankato Clinic for their care. And to Andy Sturdevant for often reminding me of who I am.  To those of you facing this psychologically challenging test.  Don’t worry.  Colonoscopies are not that terrible.  You catch business early if business there is.  If not…peace of mind.  They provide peace of mind.

Later, Steph will take me to Paglai’s for a delicious pizza.

    I’m a little dizzy and becoming hungry, but all-in-all, feeling Olympian!

      That’s what she said (meaning you, Gae) (also, Steph, who has been umming about my obsession with this business for weeks).
