Hospitals, Doctors, GI Scopes! Oh my!

Actually, we really do love just about every person that’s taken care of Kristina at UT. I kind of feel like Kristina helps them too. Her deadpan wit has kept many a medical professional on their toes.

Once again, I’d like to take the time to post a picture of my lovely wife showing just how she feels about more medical procedures:


It’s a GI scope. Nothing major, but we’ve all gotten a bit anxious over anything medical related. Hopefully they’ll get to the bottom (pun intended) of why Kristina was so sick and why she still suffers from nausea. She set her alarm for 3am, woke up and took some Zofran and ate all my doughnuts. She said there was no way in hell that she was going to go this thing anxious AND starved.

I’ll post on her account on twitter and on her Facebook page when she’s done. She gets mad but when the drugs kick in, I take over her phone. I’ve seen her drugged text messages. They are a treat, but can frighten small children. I’ll be sure to keep you updated; it comforts me to know that you all worry as much as I do.

    Worry, and then some. Thanks for the update. That picture is worth many, many words.

      I love it when I can sub in hand gestures for words. :D Thank you.

    I’m not sure they’ll be able to see much if she has a gut full of donuts. Good luck and best wishes for a speedy recovery, Kristina. PS please post some drug addled text messages for our enjoyment. xxx

    Ha – they did see evidence of the doughnuts, but that’s the problem. Those doughnuts should have been long gone at that point. Marta – I think Marcus has a few saved up for your enjoyment. ;)

    Hugs! Read your snake adventure also. I am so glad you got away up into the mountains, even if a copperhead joined you. Fresh air, literally and hopefully figuratively. Hope the doctors get some answers for you. Good ones.

    My best guess is that you will “scare the hell” out of cancer. It will run away and stay away! I’m sending it the evil eye as I type here. I would love to be there to hold your hand, just because we’ve never met doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be the right thing to do.

    I love your sarcasm and your wit because is it always the things I say inside my head when I really want to scream them out loud. Unfortunately, I tend to be a stay inside the lines type of girl.

    I would really like to send you something, so send me an e-mail with your mailing address to

    I also need to know if you are a silver or gold kind of girl? If you don’t like either just tell me black is the way to go!

    Keep your head on straight, with a slight cock to it and I will keep you in my prayers and other daily ramblings in my mind.

    I hope that they figure out what is going on soon, because I can’t drink all of this bourbon myself.
