Day 06 - Favorite superhero and why
Cat woman - I love her - especially in the movie where the Penguin is shooting her and she keeps getting up going "7 left ... 6 left". I think I like her so much because she's just badass like that.
Day 04 - A habit that you wish you didn’t have
I have a few habits I wish I didn't have, though all of my worst ones have been expelled. The one that I have that I hate the most is my constant worrying. I don't know how to make that stop, though I've gone on some pretty intense soul searching expeditions to figure this out. If I didn't worry so much, I know I'd be much better off.
At the test today they couldn't find a vein, so before they even tried they called the IV team, and she got it first stick, though she had to wiggle the needle around to get it into the vein. That sh*t hurts, so while she's doing this the IV nurse and the GI nurse start talking about Brad Pitt's ass. No joke ... his ass. I'm assuming to make me feel better, but it was the randomness of the topic that got me. They got the IV started, and gave me the sedative. As they're ending the colonoscopy I wake up. Totally and completely, inequivocaly awake. I ask for more sedative, and the doctor says not until I swallow the stuff that'll numb my throat so they can put the endoscope down my throat. I do that and they give me more sedative, which thankfully lasts til they start moving me to the recovery room. Though they had to give me more than I think they expected because he kept saying "look at me" and I'd look and he'd say "give her more." I'm not sure if it's because I was so anxious that it had a lesser effect, but ... who knows?
He came in to talk to me and told me that I, yet again, have hemorrids, and that they will need surgery to be removed. However, he will have to perform at least 2 more tests on me, I believe to prove necessity to the insurance company. He did say that we would have to speak to Dr. Casillas again (he's the surgeon) so I have that excitement to look forward to. It'll be at least a week out of work, if not more, depending on if he does a straight hemorridectomy or a stapled hemorridectomy.
Now I'm home, and my side hurts where it normally does, and mom says that's from the poking and prodding, and my throat is really sore, which of course is from the tube down my throat. All in all, I always have a story.
