Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering.” — Paulo Coehlo

The very idea of a colonoscopy — any time of the year — was more sobering than finding my first AARP card in the mailbox after I turned 50. Which is partly why I kept avoiding it.

As I recently discovered, the procedure itself wasn’t all that bad. It was waiting for the results of the pathology report that scared the dickens (or Dickens) out of me — especially so close to the holidays.

    Not there yet. My mom had hers a few years back; she said it was not even close to as bad as she had feared it to be.
    Merry Christmas, Cindy. I hope it is full of love and cheer.
    Love and hugs to you.
