Now What????

Image result for graphics of clowns

Steinbeck, why did you put a picture of a clown on our blog?

‘Cuz Mom said she was scoping out clowns yesterday.  That’s why she was gone most of the day.

No, no, no………

Yes, yes, yes……..

Steinbeck, Mom wasn’t scoping out clowns, she had to have a colonoscopy.  Didn’t you notice that she didn’t eat all weekend?

Now that you mention it, I didn’t notice her in the kitchen very much.  So what is that cold as a pea thing?

It’s not a very fun test, but Mom says it’s really critical to determine if a human has cancer.

MOM HAS CANCER????????????

No, no, no…….relax.  Her test was fine but she wouldn’t have known that if she hadn’t had the test.

Will we have to have one of those cold as a pea things?

No.  At least I certainly hope not.  Can you imagine spending all day and night in the litter box???

That’s why Mom was living in the bathroom?

Surrounded by ginger

Did you notice she wasn’t smiling much……….or even talking???

Hemingway, if Mom ever puts peas in our food dish……..           


From the Mom:

Yes, I went through the torture of having a colonoscopy yesterday.  (I hope this isn’t TMI, but I do feel it’s important.)  The prep was really hard on me this time so next time, the doctor is going to change some of the things I have to take.  However, I’m glad it’s over and I’m glad they didn’t find anything serious.  Early detection is key and the fact I’ve had polyps in the past indicates I need to be alert.  Even though it’s no fun, I recommend everyone getting the test.  Oh, and I won’t be putting peas in the boys’ dishes.

  1. I am glad you are OK and are vigilant. My mom had major surgery 5 years ago for colon cancer, it is not fun. She was lucky to be able to get her colostomy reversed. I wish they could come up with a less harsh prep.

  2. Mom says she is happy everything is okay. She’s had a few of those “cold pea” things. And it is the prep that is the awful part of it. Sounds as if you boys have nothing to worry about.

  3. Glad your Mom is alright after the COLD PEA test but it is a very important thing for humans to do – even if it’s not one bit pleasant to prepare for OR go through! Maybe one day they will make the whole thing a lot easier – more people would DO it if it was easier I think. Anyway, you boys don’t have to worry – we kitties don’t have to have that COLD PEA thing. Thank heavens!

    1. Teddy, Mom said she talked with the doctor and they will make changes to the prep next time. It still won’t be fun but it might be a little easier on her stomach. We’re glad she had the Cold Pea test.

      1. My Mom’s last Cold Pea test she had pills as prep instead of the liquid stuff…… was just as bad….but then my Mom is a little bit of a “weinie” when it comes to medical tests! 🙂

  4. I think it was the perfect day for your mom to see a clown. Once my mom gave me a pea. I chewed it and spit it out on the rug. I hope she has learned a valuable lesson.

    Love and licks,
