My shipment of Glo Bars finally arrived! The US Post Office temporarily “lost” my package. I ripped into an Awake Glo Bar in the car:
If I bought these in a store, I would be impressed. But, I’m even MORE impressed eating them because I know exactly who baked it (Angela) and all the hard work and love that went into it… I swear you can taste that. 🙂
After my post office trip, I went to the doctor’s office for some follow-up tests. I mentioned that I had abnormal results but not really what it was – well, it was a pap smear that identified “pre-pre-cancerous” cells. This is not highly unusual for a pap smear; however, this is the second time into two years I’d have this result. (Just an FYI, I do not have HPV, although it is the primary cause of abnormal paps.)
While I was in the waiting room, I was flipping through a magazine and guess who I saw?! Some of my favorite bloggers!
It was so cool to see the women I “know” in the magazine! 🙂
Then it was time for my procedure. I had a coloscopy, which is when the doctor looks at your cervix under a microscope. If she seems anything that looks odd, she takes a biopsy. My doctor took about four biopsies, but she said it was more for a precaution and that everything looks normal. It was incredibly painful, but I’d rather be safe than sorry any day!
Obviously, getting my cervix cut into is not the ideal way to spend a Thursday afternoon. I wanted to share my experience because it’s so important to get regular pap smears and mammograms (or testicular and prostate checks if you’re a guy). And, of course, get checked for STDs if you’re active! There is nothing to be shy about…. Ignoring health issues or weird test results does not make them go away.
This blog post reads like a Sex Education PSA! :) Sorry!
After that awesome experience (obviously, that was sarcastic), I had lunch:
I was craving veggies so I made a two-egg omelet with cheese, onions, mushrooms, and green peppers.
Plus, a pickle and grapes:
And an Arnold sandwich thin.
I have a LOT of e-mails to catch up on! :) Time to work, work, work.
