When I meditate this is the vision I keep inside my head so my monkey mind stays focused. This is also the image I used all this week before going under anesthesia.
This week I had already planned to be off because my wife and I were to see Jeff Dunham. He was so funny. I know that his niche is the puppets but he is a great story teller.
What was to be a week off of really nothing turned into taking care of a few medical issues.
On this episode I will walk you through the week including why both men and women need to get away from their fear of getting a colonoscopy.
Yes it can be a bit humiliating but it is a necessary evil. Not only did I do the colonoscopy but I also had (same day) an endoscopy. That means a scope down the esophagus.
No they did not use just one scope, well that is what the doctor told me. I will let that all sink into your mind.
Then the other procedure was to have the oil that is in my right eye taken out. Back in November I had to have eye surgery to fix a detached retina. After five months it was time to take out the oil.
In my view I am a physical mess: I am over weight.
With the colonoscopy I feel like it is a bit of a clean slate, a flushing of the soul (yes bathroom humor there).
As a dad I want to be around for many years and taking care of one self is part of being a parent.
