Barium Kit.....Activate! And It was RAD!

 I've been having some "issues" for about 3 months now and so today I start on a Barium Kit to cleanse myself before my procedure tomorrow morning.  I don't feel that the 24 hour fast and liquid only diet is going to help "Cleanse" me since I've been doing a pretty good job of that myself.  So right now I am having beef broth for breakfast and black coffee, yum!  MM MM Good! Yikes.  When I was 8 around 1976 a lot of people got really bad food poisoning from Dairy Queen.  I was one of those lucky kids.  Apparently the type of food poisoning I had also contained parasites so I am lucky enough to still have them in my body.  Yes, after 35 years, they are still there.  They make me sick pretty frequently but never like this so my Doctor wants to check and see what is going on with me.  Hopefully that is all it is and we can kill it again with medicine.  The odd thing that he mentioned is that as often as I am "sick" I should have lost a lot of weight......nope, not that lucky I guess, but that is weird, so we shall see.
Color Me Rad was the most fun I've had in a race.  If you have never done it you have to do it next year.  It's only a 5K so completely walkable for you non runners! It was a blast!  All proceeds go to Special Olympics which is dear to our hearts because my brother was a Special Olympian.
Next, my melt down.  Yup I had a good ol' fashioned pity party last night.  Stress, worry, loneliness, money.  I had myself a great time crying last night and feeling sorry for myself.  Chin up today though.  Great friends who love me and make me laugh and a family that does the same.  So as I raise my glass of Beef Broth......Here's to our health!...Blech!

It's okay to throw a pity party every now and then. I don't blame you. Stay close to the toilet today! I love you!
