Original Extra Strong

I still have tons of trip pictures to share but I wanted to put up some backyard pictures.

As I predicted almost 3 weeks ago my souvenir chest cough is still hanging around. I’m now at the stage where 2 or 3 times a day plus at bedtime I’m overcome with a coughing fit so terrible it sounds like someone is killing me and I have to hold my hands over my face so my eyeballs don’t pop out.

The things that help are hot tea and Fisherman’s Friend so I walk around sloshing and smelling mentholated.

The deal with the colonoscopy, as I understand it, is that they like to start screening at 50 and as long as everything is normal, doing the test every 10 years.

If you have family history (and I do) and insurance that will pay for it, they like to start earlier. My doctors started bugging me about in the last couple of years and I always said that I’d call and make the appointment later. I recently had another health issue and my doctor very strongly urged me again to do the test and I caved.

The doctor said if the test is normal and my sister’s tests are normal, I go on the 10 year schedule like everyone else.

    There are SO many things to look forward to as we get older, aren't there? Before you know it it will be Saturday and the test will be behind you.
