    Colonoscopies are scary. I don't want anything shoved up my butt.

    My doc mentioned it to me, i said no.

    He also keeps repeatedly pestering me about getting "blood work" done (why do they call taking a blood sample "blood work"?)

    I keep saying no to "blood work". I guess we'll see what happens.

    Yikes that is scary!

    Only 55 years old. :alex:


    I'm really sorry for your loss.

    Maybe the next time my doc mentioned a colonoscopy, I will think twice before saying no.

    Thanks for your post.

    Very cool!

    I love medieval reenacting, although I am just starting to get into it.

    I haven't joined SCA yet. Still saving up to buy myself some armor.

    In the meantime, I just go to Renaissance festivals to get my medieval fix. :D

    I saw some cool jousting at the Maryland Renaissance Festival put on by these guys:

    Thanks!!

    How long did it take you to learn to ride a horse well enough to joust?

    I'm just starting out with horse riding lessons.

    Further thread detour is worthwhile. Bloodwork can tell a lot about what's going on. My bloodwork done Monday. Saw Dr. Tuesday. Sugar good, PSA low, cholesterol 145, liver enzymes up. He says cut statins in half going forward. Luckily I don't use nsaids, for my liver's sake.
    Bad news: He says cut back on drinking to 2x/day, exercise more and eat better. :af:
    Colonoscopies in 2005 and 2013, time for another. The scope is nothing, the prep is endurable.

    I’ve been riding English since 2008. Started doing small jump shows in 2010. Then joust training in 2012. It’s good to ride at least 2-3 times a week.
    Dressage riding is the best for all disciplines. I try to joust in tournaments or shows 6-8 times a year.

    Yes. A Griffin.
    Here’s another shield or encrouche, with the cross of Saint George.
