Anna's family has a bit of a history of colon cancer so at her last physical her doctor referred her to have a colonoscopy. That's what her previous post was all about. You have to drink all that stuff to prep the canvas (if you will).
Now...let me be clear...colon cancer and other related problems are no laughing matter. We all have family and friends who have suffered with those horrible problems. However...there are many things related to a colonoscopy that are funny.
We started the day at The Surgery Center of Decatur. I thought it was in poor taste that they required colonoscopy patients to enter through the back door.
Now the part of a colonoscopy that is so funny to me is the time in the recovery room post procedure. They fill the colon up with air during the procedure so they can see. When it's over....that air has to go somewhere. Yes....I am a 30 year old man. Yes....I realize this is part of a medical procedure. But I'm sorry....sitting in that room listening to all the wind being broke in the recovery bays around me....that's hilarious. If I live to be 110 years old that will still be funny to me.
We got nice pictures of the inside of Anna's colon too....bonus!
Anna was "awake" almost immediately after coming back into the recovery room but she was high as an American Idol Season 8 Paula Abdul. Her memory has been pretty awful as well since the procedure. As of 9:00pm this evening I have had the same conversation with Anna about 6 times. Bless her heart.*
