Give Me A Break John

Everytime the phone rang today I would hear John explaining why he is under the weather today. Gosh when I had that test he didn't think it was such a biggie. He was preparing for the dreaded colon test in the morning. We have a father/son team down here who do that test at our hospital and they have it down to a science. That is if you go exactly by their directions you know how to mix the dosage and exactly what time to take each one. What you can have and what time to be at the hospital and they even called today to check to see how he was coming along. Now you take a patient like Mr. John, he always has to feel in control of every situation so what does he do? He stops eating before he has to and he starts taking the medicine before he is supposed to. Then on the second dosage he expects me to figure out what time he is supposed to take it. Then he gets hungry at supper time where if he had something to eat as late as he could it would have all worked out. I know it would I've been there and done that. I felt bad enough to eat in front of him so I sneaked out and had something. The next time he has this test I'm going to be very busy and one of his heir's can have the pleasure of hearing a report of every bathroom visit.

You girls sure like to pick on the boys! I don't do it (the colonoscaphy??), I like to NOT KNOW. I guess it is sorta like sticking your head in the sand. Right opposite of the test, huh?
But there is no history in my side of the family, thank goodness.
I eat nuts and apples and 8-12 oz of red wine, i think that cures every thing. Also eat a quart of minced garlic a year.
Yeah I stink (not really she says) but I am one healthy fellow (I think).
I like a, "complaining about us boys", entry. Keeps us on our toes (and pretty).
Take care,
jack & Sherry

I dying here, laughing, but I guess I wouldn't be laughing if I was the target of a semi-truck being shoved where the sun doesn't shine.

Hang in there kid and good luck to John.

Don't know what to say to this, but that test does not sound like fun. I have not worried about having one since I became a vegan which seems to be very easy on my digestive system. I did have a colonoscopy and did not like. Poor John. Atleast you won't have to worry about that for a while.

ROFL...sounds like my stepdad. My mom said if she didn't stop yakking on the phone about his woes she was ripping it out of the wall!!! Men just like to make alot out of a little, Doug is the same way, believe me. ;)

Good luck to John though.
