Happy Birthday to Me

7 Jul

Today is my birthday. I have completed 52 years of life. It’s always nice to feel like I’ve completed something.

For my birthday, Professorgrrl gave me Adele’s album “19” which is now playing on my iphone. She said to me, “I thought that since one of Adele’s songs got you through your MRI,” [see my post on June 16, 2012] “then maybe one of her songs from this album will get you through your colonoscopy…”

That statement will certainly influence how I listen to the album, will it not?

Ah, the joys of aging. In addition to receiving regular requests from AARP to join up, my insurance company is sending me reminders that I am due for some test or another, due to being over 50. The latest was a reminder that it’s time for a colonoscopy. They’ve been sending that letter for 2 years now. That’s pretty bad when your insurance company WANTS you to go and spend some of their money!

Sometimes, I feel like this Mama Wren who has taken up residence in the back yard…not quite sure if it’s safe to leave the comforts of home. Especially if there is someone waiting for you out there holding suspicious-looking equipment…

    How funny! Happy Birthday to you!!! and go get the colonoscopy. Its a pain but necessary. One of my friends never had one and then had cancer which had been there 9 years at least. It is very slow growing but no symptoms, so just do it. As my doctor says, “there is no reason these days for a person to die of colon cancer.” (Am talking to myself too, as I have been putting off my third one for a year.) Do something special for your birthday and enjoy!!!

      Thank you for the birthday wishes and the encouragement to scheduling the colonoscopy!
