Katie C. brought awareness. I just did it. It's not as scary as you think. Everyone 50 and over needs a colonoscopy! Maybe you think that's TMI (too much information), but just like we get mammograms and physicals each year, we only have to get a colonoscopy about every five to 10 years. It's going to become as routine as the health tests I just mentioned.
The hardest part is the prep the day before, and that was especially hard for me since I chose to have my colonoscopy the day after the Big Game! (I didn't realize that when I made the appointment!) I had BBQ ribs cooking in the Crockpot all day, Mark was making wings, and the kids had friends over. So smelling the food and seeing others eating when all I could do was drink liquids took some major self control! I kept reminding myself that I wasn't gaining the weight that the others were!
It wasn't painful at all, and the nurses were so nice! They encouraged me to write about it in my blog and get the word out because it's one of the most important preventative measures! So if you haven't done it yet and you're at that age where you should, trust me, make an appointment and go get it done!
Speaking of cleaning out, how about cleaning up with a new Dyson upright vacuum on February 19? If you're in need of a new vacuum, check out our TSV that day. It's their newest and latest technology, and it's a whole new design! It has a bigger container for the dirt, and the head floats over the various floor surfaces, so you get the most efficient suction everywhere in your home! There are other new features that I think you'll really like, but make sure you mark your calendars to tune in that day and see what the excitement is all about!
I'll see you every Wednesday morning at 9am, so that's one place you'll know you can find me! Have a terrific week!
