All's well that 'ends' well!

Pun intended.

Thank you, my dear friends, for saying a prayer for hubby the other morning. Everything was fine with his tests and he won't have to go through that for another 10 years! Those of you that have been through that were right in saying that drinking the stuff was the roughest part. Woah! He struggled with drinking the whole jug and then boy, did it ever kick in! Bless his, ummm, heart.

His appointment the next morning was at 8:30 a.m. and we didn't leave there until 12:30 p.m.! They finally took him back at 10:00 a.m., then he said they gave him the "happy juice" around 11:00 a.m. and that was the last thing he remembered! They called me back a little after 12 noon as they were trying to wake him up.

Now, that, my friends, was a site! This is a man that has never had a drop of alcohol in his life and he was muttering and slurring his words like he had gone to sleep with a bottle of Vodka! It was hilarious. I couldn't help it---I was doubled over laughing, at the side of his bed, while they were shaking him and calling his name. They must have thought, "hmm, some loving, compassionate wife he's got!"

Those big green eyes finally opened and he didn't have a clue what had just transpired! I was glad he was okay, but could not quit giggling at how "out of it" he was.

Sidenote: I finally got back to sleep the other night by the honking like a gaggle of geese gentle, soothing sounds of my hubby's snoring. Then I slept until 11:00 a.m. The guys are at the Biscuits vs. the Mississippi Braves game tonight and I just woke up from a power nap. I had my jammies on at 5:15 p.m. and was in la-la land by 6:oo and slept almost two hours. I'm sure I've messed up now! Maybe I need to get someone to come and flip me upside down by my heels like that old wives' tale about babies who have their days and nights mixed up. Oh well...guess I'll just check in on all my blogger friends and catch up on what ya'll are doing!

By the way, a very special thank you to the word "gaggle". It's a funny word that I don't get to use often and so I was determined to work it in. And an even bigger thanks to my "grasshopper" friend, Melodye, over at MorningSong...without you, I wouldn't know how to strike through words which is going to become my new favorite bloggy tool!

P.S. I have not forgotten the restaurant meme tag by Sandi at Whistlestop Cafe. I'm working on it!

11 sweet friends had to say...:

My friend Judy that I work with had her first colonoscopy last week and was HILARIOUS telling me about know....she's the one I told you the story about when she and that other girl we work with went to Intimacy to by bras...remember that story and us laughing so hard??? Well, she was JUST as funny about the colonoscopy adventure. I cried I was laughing so hard and I was wiping my eyes with the palms of my hands...every time I heard it! I'll have to give you her version when we talk sometime...just you wait!

I can still hear my mom's voice~ and it is still funny that my brother fell out of that tree. =D

"Alls well that 'ends' well"...girlfriend, you are tooo funny! Seriously though, I'm so glad it's over for him. It's a test we all dread, but it's so important. When is yours scheduled?

A nap...that sounds heavenly.

I have to have a colonoscopy every 2 years thanks to a wonderful case of colitis I had forever ago. FUN! That nasty drink is definately the worst! Except for this one idiot Dr who decided I only needed to have part of my colon examined (I forget the technical term for this)Anyway, they don't put you to sleep for that one. It was THE worst pain of my entire life. I could feel that tube making every turn...I literally though I was going to pass out from the pain. (and I have a pretty high pain tolerance!) I never went back to that Dr, and now I tell them if they wanna look at my colon, they have to look at it all....and I want to enjoy the drugs that go with!

(I'm sorry, that's probably more than you ever wanted to know about anyone's

Lyndy said...

So glad this is all over for your husband. I have heard that drink is horrible.

Have a blessed weekend.


Tonja said...

I understand that now they have some pills you can take instead of that awful drink. But, don't quote me on that.

Glad all is well.

MorningSong said...

Your striking skills are AMAZING!! :) Grasshopper proud of skills learned!

Now if we could figure out how to use emoticons on blogger rather than the sideways smile. :)

Anyone know how to do this?? I am glad your husband is doing well and that you are so compassionate! You crack me up!

Musicaljean said...

Yep, I'm glad too that his procedure was so easy and that he gave you such great entertainment afterward! And that everything came out alright.

And just exactly how do you put those lines through words anyway? That is cool.

Shelly said...

Cracking up that you were laughing at his bedside b/c this is so my personality too! I can't help it! I look real compassionate at those instances of an initial fall or slip of a friend!

Rhoda said...

Hiya, Tracey! Now, I want to know how to strike-through words too...please share with your buddy. I would love to know how to do that!

Glad your hubby woke up & is fine. Laughing at poor pitiful folk..I do that too!
