I live to knit another day...

Apologies - slightly "ewww" content... not going into detail, but generalities may offend some sensibilities.
I had my second colonoscopy today. My Dad had Colon Cancer so us childrens get to start these kinds of scans early.
Based on the unusual, out-of-the-ordinary and profoundly unpleasant experiences that accompanied my first colonoscopy, I was mildly terrified to have the 2nd one. However, I have survived to knit (and blog) another day and the Dr. found nothing untoward in his look-see. (sigh of relief!!)
This experience was not as profoundly unpleasant as the first one - the prep was improved and I'll skip the details. The aftermath was nominal...I have had very minimal discomfort, and, as promised, the anesthetic they used wore off quickly. Yeah~!!!!~ DH did a pretty good job baby-sitting me too.

I have been doing some knitting since my last blog - here's an update on my events.
(Note - if I can figure out how to do it, there should be a small collection of "medals" beginning on the right-hand side of the blog - one for each completed project/event).

Event: Scarf Stroke and GiftKnit Pentathalon - 20 % complete
I cast on the scarf 8/8/08 AM - took me a bit to figure out the color changes. Oy. It's started...but there's a looooong way to go.
8/12/08 - making headway. Sunday was frustrating as I was afflicted with a counting spasm whereby I couldn't accurately count past 12. (ok, 12 was kind of iffy too) (Ack!!)

I haven't gotten this far yet...
