* My camera is a wanker, so you only have my words tonight*
Lorelei didn’t go to school today, for all the Halloween festivities. Instead she went to the doctor. After a night of coughing while Geoff held her, she was actually barking this morning.
She has croup.
She wasn’t leaving the house today without wearing her costume, and I was in no position to argue. So she went to the pediatrician’s office as a princess.
Isabelle had a great time at school, dressed as Ariel. But how’s this for creepy: The preschool is part of a church and today the church held a funeral for one of their members. *insert creepy organ music here*
My costume? A T-shirt that reads, “This IS my costume.”
Geoff took the girls out in the neighborhood to trick or treat, wrapped in blankets. It’s a bit rainy and cool, so they didn’t stay out long. Lorelei fell asleep in the wagon, so we tossed her into bed as soon as they got back.
Other current events:
Geoff is still working on final revisions of his book. But it’s actually already listed on Amazon Canada and available for pre-ordering! It’s not even printed yet!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of experiencing an endoscopy. (I tried to get still photos of my stomach insides, but the doctor needed them for my chart…killjoy. I TOLD him I had a blog!)
I have had tummy troubles for about 5 months now, and the first procedure I had was an upper GI ultrasound which was negative. Then the endoscopy, which was also negative. And guess what I get to go through now, kids? That’s right! A colonoscopy!
Having an endoscopy is really not a big deal. This is what I had to do: Eat and drink nothing after midnight before the procedure. Go in, get an IV, get some really NICE drugs, and I only remember having to swallow a few times as the scope went down my throat. I was so high, I didn’t even care.
Hopefully the colonoscopy is just as pleasant. I won’t be able to eat anything solid for 2 days before, and will have a lovely dose of laxatives (yummy) the day before.
Now, aren’t you glad you read my blog?
And to answer the question burning in everyone’s mind right now:
Will I be posting pictures of my colon?
Maybe I will, maybe I won’t.
