I worked from home yesterday mostly because the weather was forecast to be lousy: heavy rain and lots of wind.  I didn't have any sessions scheduled and I figured I could stay home, make some chicken soup and a nice roast for dinner.  The weather was as promised so I was glad to be home.  I stopped at the grocery store after I took David to the train station and got the makings for soup and matzo balls.  Dumped the chicken, herbs and veggies into my enormous stock pot and added water and started it boiling.  Logged into the office and started working, but had to quit in the afternoon.  

Why?  Because I am bleeding again.  The bad kind.  I've had 2 colonoscopies in the past 2 years, both times because of this kind of bleeding.  This time the bleeding was accompanied by really bad abdominal pains yesterday. I called my doctor's office and spoke to one of the partners.  He said I should go to the ER, but I didn't.  I waited a while and the pain stopped.  He called me again this morning to check up on me.  I told him the bleeding was still going on but the stomach pain stopped.  He said I could either go to the ER or come in and see him on Monday, which is what I'm going to do.

On the plus side, the soup turned out great.  Me?  I'm still worried.  I would really like to know why I have had so many episodes of this bleeding within the last 2 years.  They keep looking but not finding anything more than a few hemorrhoids.

As I expected, the week's festivities (and I use that term with tongue firmly planted in cheek) prevented me from keeping up with LJ for the most part. The anesthesia left me very groggy until sometime yesterday afternoon.  I actually still feel a little out of it, but that could just be my usual state of being.  

I will strive to get caught up on the the 30 day meme this weekend.  I've really been enjoying the posts from all of you who are doing this too - I've been reading even if I haven't posted much.  I will get back to it - I am determined.

Thank you for all the good thoughts and wishes this week.  They are - and YOU are - much appreciated.  

Hopefully the rest of the work day will pass quickly and painlessly and I can start the weekend.  One week to Vermont!!

Quick post because I am sleepy.  Had the colonoscopy (roto-rootered) today and it went fine.  A couple of tiny polyps, several internal hemorrhoids (which caused the scary bleeding) but nothing serious.  The kids came with me and Sarah drove me home.  It was kind of weird, kind of nice.  Makes me think about me taking care of my folks.  While it is nice to have my children be there for me (David couldn't take the day off today) I don't want this to be the start of bad things.
