a few hours at the hospital

This morning I took my dad to the hospital for a colonoscopy... He was scheduled for one because previous test results were suspicious, suggesting the possibility that he might have something serious like colon cancer. (He just finished having prostate cancer, getting surgery for that, and he was worried perhaps the cancer had spread).
So they did their probing scoping thing, which I'm sure wasn't pleasant, but the good news is that the results were just fine. No tumors, no polyps, no cancer.
Whew!

I'm very glad.

I need to get one soon. Even though I'm in my very early 30s they want me to start doing them becasue of my family history. My aunt died from colon cancer, and my dad has had it. I'm not looking forward to it, but it's so easy to catch if you do it early.
