2 Weeks in, 3 Deaths Later...

What a year so far. We've lost Lemmy, Bowie, and just yesterday, Alan Rickman. US politics are even crazier and more full of greedy fools and liars than usual. Climate change is happening and the powers that be sit arguing like idiots. We continue to fund killing and oppression overseas while people die in our own streets of things we should be fixing. Things like homelessness, disease, hunger, gun madness and mental illnesses. It looks like 2016 is just like every other year.

But I have good news. The CT scan with both barium swallow and IV contrast went off without a hitch on Wednesday. The radiologist, Emma, was fabulous. And last night, Dr. McDreamy House called to say it was all fine. No abnormalities. Stay on the soft foods for a while and avoid the things that irritate diverticula, and all should be well. I almost jumped through the phone to hug him. I'll go through with the endoscopy and colonoscopy just to underline it and make sure nothing was hiding, but for now, WOOHOO!

I slept like a rock last night.

There's more to say, but the day has many things in store and I must run. Just wanted to stop by and give an update. Enjoy the weekend, be kind, celebrate the good.

That is great news, Laura. Watch what you eat, don't take the world's problems all on yourself, and enjoy the good people and things that surround you.

So glad to hear that all was well on the tests. I hope things go better from here.

Hi Laura,

Awesome and uplifting news about the tests! :) I shall have a soft drink to celebrate!

Three people, so much a part of many of our lives. We shall embrace the memories and be inspired. It seems the one percent continue to dominate the world. Time to redress the balance. Here's to the revolution, dear friend.

Gary :)
