Today I am grateful.
- My colonoscopy went well and I did it without any sedation drugs! Everyone told me beforehand that I was crazy to do it without the drugs but it was important to me to try since I'm breastfeeding Way (and it kinda felt like they were daring me, so...). The lactation consultant at our hospital told me it was safe to get the drugs and go home and breastfeed him but something about having Versed and Demerol injected into my system less than two hours before feeding my baby didn't sit well with me. The procedure certainly wasn't as comfortable as those I've had in the past when I was mildly sedated but I powered through the cramping and minor pain and felt like a Rock Star Mama when it was over. Everything looked good (well, to the doctor that is...it all looked pretty gross to me) and now I don't have to forgo food for 36 straight hours again for another three years. Yeah, me! The downside? No more solo bowel cleansing for three years. Darn. I was able to finish a whole book last night, people!
- The Earl of Sandwich (our new most favorite spot on the planet) opens in the morning so Roger took me there after the test to scarf down my best sandwich ever--The All American--which quickly quieted my screaming hunger pangs, after I first slurped down a Starbuck's Espresso Truffle, that is. So much for losing a few pounds from that fast.
- When Waylon was born he gave Delaney a present ('Cause he knew that it's always good to bribe the elders in the tribe you're joining): a kid-friendly digital camera. Here's how my daughter sees me through her lens.
