It's A Wonderful Life

Well another whirl wind weekend.  Last week was so busy I was glad to get it over.  I had a colonoscopy on Friday and after Ron viewed the pictures of my colon I told him he can honestly say he knows me inside and out!  Don't have to repeat this for another 5 years.

As much as people hate having this procedure it beats the heck out of dying from colon cancer.  Both Ron's and my father died of colon cancer.  Had it been caught early they both probably would have lived another 20 years.  So, it is something we take very seriously and it is one of the most curable cancers if caught early.

We celebrated my daughters (plural) birthdays Saturday night.  Had a great time with them.  I got them T-shirts that say Thing 1 and Thing 2 along with things they really wanted.  I can't believe they are 44 years old.  It seems like yesterday they were just five years old and refusing to let anyone sing happy birthday to them.

Right now the world is looking pretty wonderful to me.  Ron is doing well, Mike is doing well, my daughters are healthy and I'm free of pain.  Life is really good!

Well, as you said, it's good to have that colonoscopy "behind" you. And so now you can look forward to many more birthdays with your daughters!
