So. Not dying!

Not that I expected anything really different from my check-up this morning, but it’s nice to hear anyway. Blood pressure fine, lungs fine, dunno what bloodwork is going to say when I go take care of that tomorrow, but everything’s functional. Asked for the shingles vaccine, but apparently there’s a national backlog or something.

Doctor did warn me that the colonoscopy carousel starts up next year, though. …Oh, boy. That’s gonna be fun!

      My wife has to have them yearly because of her medical history; I will not be able to shrug that particular chore off. 😐

        I understand the modern equipment bears less resemblance to a garden hose and more to a heavy extension cord ..

    Look into Cologuard, might be an option to avoid the scope.

    Grats on the good news and my sympathies for the colonoscopies in your future. I’ve had 2 and am due for a 3rd; they have become less of an ordeal, if no less intrusive.
