I'm sorry but your post made me laugh! I'm sure it wasn't funny at the time but I have this image of you laying in the oh so lovely hospital gown with the scope stuck in your butt and them telling you, nah, that doesn't hurt!
I do remember saying to the doc "Come on, this is a hospital, I know you have got to have better drugs than this!" His reply was its hospital protocol blah, blah, blah He did seem rather amused by me though, I know he told the nurse to start with a double dose and I heard him tell her several more times to give me more and than she said I was at the limit. He wasn't too happy though when I pulled the mouth piece out to tell him I was STILL AWAKE!!!
How is Mark feeling now a days? Is the new practice doing well?
Taking it one day at a time.....
