Do anything you want to me: poke me, prod me, set my hair on fire... but please do not make me drink something gross!

The barium drink was just more than I could take. I know that sounds very melodramatic, but it kicked my butt all the way down the hall. I have never known myself to be such a baby about something, but this stuff was putrid. I just hope that I got enough inside of me to make the CT scan worth it because I'm not drinking that crap again.

The scan itself went fine, I think. Took about an hour. I'm not sure when I'll know anything.

Today is my 9th wedding anniversary. I think I'd rather go out to pizza with my kids and my husband than go to some romantic restaurant alone with my husband. What does that say about my sense of romance?

Your sense of romance sounds just fine to me...

Glad the test went fine, but eww, what you had to go through!

Happy anniversary!

Rev SS said...

ewwwwwwww, YUK, and ick, indeed! Glad it's over.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! (I like your sense of romance ... long as you are having one-on-one time with hubby on a regular basis too.)

Dear Iris, even with the limited info you've given on your medical stuff, I cannot imagine how you could possibily feel romantic right now.

In due time, dear, in due time.

Iris, I left a message earlier... but it has disappeared.

First, you are in my prayers.

Second, I think you are a grown up romantic, and I agree with your priorities thoroughly.

i'm late but happy anniversary anyway! our 10th (2 weeks ago) was spent driving to CO for a funeral and somehow i didn't mind. i think your idea of romance is very sweet.

sorry that the barium stuff was so horrendous.

love ya!
