I don’t know about youze guys, but we’re getting colonoscopys together! He’s been putting his off for well over a year and I got tired of nagging him about it. So when my doctor told me I need to get one (colon cancer killed my mom, so now that I’m 50, I need to be screened regularly) I made an appointment for him. He’s going to do it!
And then we’ll convalesce at his house watching movies. Between the drugs and the Marx Brothers, it promises to be a good time!
Gee, all my dad and I do together is put new plumbing in the bathroom, climb up on the roof to clean the gutters and do some repairs, and occasionally watch Lawrence of Arabia. We had our sigmoidoscopies separately.
So, will this truly be a shared experience with you laying face to face on separate gurneys and holding hands as they shove the cameras up your butts? Otherwise, I don’t see how it’s a father/daughter outing. J/K.
I think it’s very smart of you to include your dad (or he including you) in this necessary evil. I worry a lot about my parents’ health and they’re hours away. Mom has been griping about her back lately and says she’s walking with a cane. NOOOOO! She’s supposed to be invincible, she apparently doesn’t remember that clause from when I was born.
Here’s hoping it’s not horribly painful or embarrassing magical finger wiggles
ps…I’ll pass on the wine but could use the carton of smokes and maybe a coupl’a “mothers little helpers”.
You know those darn patches don’t work…ohhh, estrogen patches?
