This is (really) for my sil/bff, Lezlei (and anyone else that may wonder). If I don't post within 5 days, Lezlei gets worried. So I wanted to let her (and you) know that I won't be posting on my blog again until Sunday afternoon.
You may have read in an earlier post a week of so ago, I'm going in for some tests at the hospital this week. I'll be off work from "the day job" tomorrow to start the 24-hour prep.
From what I gathered from the telephone nurse, the 24-hour prep is similar to the one for a colonoscopy. And if you've had those before, then you know that the "prep" the night before turns you into a Porcelain Queen. No LOL. Well, the prep time for the procedures I'm having done is 24 hours - not the usual 8 to 12. Yikes!
Thursday is test one and Friday is test two. Couldn't get them both on the same day because they need the results from test one before doing test two.
My doctor sent me a reminder letter to schedule these tests that stated, and I quote, "Your failure to follow this treatment plan may have serious consequences to your health and well-being". I understand the serious consequences to my health part, but my "well-being"? What was he planning to do, come by my house and do a "drive by" or something? Now you can LOL.
All kidding aside, I had already made the appointments for the tests he told me to schedule when I received his scary snail mail. It's all good Dr. Lin. You can call off the troops now.
I would like to tell you that I'm "ok" with all of this and what the outcome of the tests might further reveal, but I can tell by the length of this blog post that I'm feeling a bit apprehensive. I mean, HEY, I just turned 56 in February. I guess it's all part of "growing up" :)
So with that written and out in the universe now, please hold good thoughts for me on Thursday and Friday - (I'll handle Wednesday for the prep, thank you).
The Soon-to-Be Porcelain Queen!
PS Ok, I guess I should explain why I won't be posting again until Sunday. Well, no matter what the health findings are, I WILL be at the Rubberstamp Convention in Carson on Saturday! As a matter of fact, I'm going to take Linda Bucci with me.
Linda has never been to the convention before. We were tablemates for the 2-day workshops with Cindy Forrester last October and since then, we spent the day/evening together at the L.A. Gift Show and she came to my workshop at Gilding the Lily last Sunday, so I know we'll be able to be around each other all day to do THIS event together :)
Oooooh, and who knows, maybe her really nice hubby, Bob, will bbq some steaks for us again for dinner? Bob - are you out there? Can you hear me Bob? *hee hee*
