Sick Room Update

Anastasia had tests on Monday. A scope down her throat and up her...well, I think you know where. All they found were 2 polyps in the large intestine. The doc took samples for testing and zapped them. Since the doc found nothing else, he is calling it an infection in the small intestine.

Anastasia said she got some good drugs and slept through the show. Dang! I've had 3 colonoscopies and I always manage to watch the show, I guess I need to ask for more drugs next time. She was in much better spirits when I talked to her after she awoke from the procedures. When I called I asked her what the word was, she replied "The Bird Is The Word" and starting singing the song. If you saw Sunday night's Family Guy, you know Peter Griffin was obsessed with that song. It was on while we were visiting her. If you haven't seen it, enjoy:

Her docs put her on real food and said they would see how she reacted to it, and then do a white cell count Tuesday morning and probably spring her sometime Tuesday. No word on any further treatment plan.

Thank you to everyone who sent positive thoughts and prayers our way. We really do appreciate it very much. I can't tell you how terribly worried I've been these past few days and I really do appreciate everyone's support.

I'm glad to hear things are going well and nothing serious has been found. It's scary to think you can get so sick and not have a rock-solid explanation, but I guess these infections do happen.

You were awake for the show? Weird!

@ JD - It was just so frustrating and the first thing everyone thought of was what happened 5 years ago. The emergency surgery to repair a big hole in her colon from diverticulitis. Watching the show is both interesting and gross. Nuff said. Lol!

@ Auntie E - So far so good.
