Gross, But Kind of Cool

Today I went in to the hospital for that barium swallow test.

(I swallowed! Tee hee!)

Anyhoo, first I spilled those fizzie thingies. You know what I'm talking about, those faux pop rocks that expand the stomach. Once I actually ingested the fizz, the fun began.

The radiologist walks in, and the conversation proceeded:

Me - "Didn't you read my mammogram a couple months ago?"

Doc - "If there was a man at the imaging place, yes, it was me."

Me - "Ha ha! First you look at my boobs, and now you're lookin' at my gut!"

The doctor was not amused.

Oh well. You can't say I don't try to make conversation.

Despite the disgusting barium, and not being able to burp (something I love to do), watching that stuff go down my esophagus and seeing my stomach was kind of cool. The doc said "You're refluxing right now!" in a stunned sort of voice.

Then he told me he didn't see a hernia.

What? Hello? No hernia? Um....okay. Someone saw or didn't see something and now what the piss?

Now.....I am home, drinking plenty of fluids to get the barium out of my system. Good times, gooooood times.

Good thing I didn't run out and buy that get-well card.
