What Was I Thinking?

So this week is my birthday and I have done nothing to insure that it will be a fun one.  For some reason, completely unknown to me, this has turned out to be a week of annual routine medical appointments.  When I was scheduling it completely slipped my mind that this was the week of my birthday and I gave no thought to the fact that I might like to do something of a non-medical nature to celebrate.

Oh well.

At least I'll get everything done.  And hopefully I'll get a clean bill of health as I embark on yet another post 50 year.

The mammogram is no big deal.  But I have to admit that when my doctor suggested a bone density study, all I could think of was Sally Field and her love of Boniva.  Am I going to become a Boniva taker?  I'll know in 10 days.

The colonoscopy has me a little on edge.  The doctor wrote me a prescription for one last year but I just never got around to doing it.  This year I have no excuse.  I am not excited.

So, while this isn't the birthday week I envisioned for myself, at least I'll come away (hopefully) with the knowledge that I can do this all again next year -- one week later in February.
