Colons and Scopes and Enemas...Oh My!

Had my follow-up appointment this afternoon for the esophageal dilation and colonoscopy from a couple weeks ago. The doctor said they couldn't get the colonoscopy scope as far as they wanted, but it's not unusual for that to occur. There were some polyps spotted, but they could be the result of irritation, since I have diarrhea regularly as a side effect of the original esophagus surgery.

Sooo, to examine closer, I'm scheduled for a barium enema on February 16th.

Fun times. NOT! :-/

Heating On The Fritz

As if there haven't been ENOUGH issues lately, now the heating unit is acting up again. Twice today, I've had to completely unplug the unit for a couple minutes and plug it back in before it starts blowing actual heat. Just had the repairman out a little over a month ago, when it wasn't kicking on at ALL. He replaced a circuit board. 😡
