Not a big fan of mother in law, but she just made me look even better!  My dear husband has to take her to her scope on Thursday and me to mine on Friday.
My experience---doctor booked scope, I bought the scope stuff plus some Gatorade and some extra popsicles, will choke down the stuff Thursday and be ready to go on Friday to get to my appointment 20 mintues early for paperwork.
 
MIL experience--first she had to see how many initials the doctor had after his name and rescheduled the appointment 6 times, then she wanted a special anesthesiologist so it has been so much work to make all of "her appointments", then she needed someone to go with her shoppping even though she still drives herself just fine, then she bought 8 bottles of prune juice, three bottles of soda, 12 boxes of orange jello and at least 20 other items.  Now hubby just found out that he was told to pick her up 1.5 hours before the scope to drive the 10 minutes to the hospital so they won't be late. 
 
My husband just kissed me for how easy I make things.  His mother is an attention seeking hypochondriac so I am sure he will be sitting at her house until late thursday night.  I know I sound cold and uncaring...but you did not have to pick her up from the hospital that day she decided she was having a heart attack because no one talked to her when his father had a heart attack.  After 6 years of this, I am really tired of her acting like a 2 year old.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

HAHAHAHAHA!!!! That's such a great story. That's probably like the difference between me and my ex. He would whine and complain and roll around the couch from a fever, then I would ask him to take me to the ER because I thought I was obstructed. (yes, this actually happened, and boy did his symptoms go away quickly)

That's priceless. Habs, you and I must have clone MILs. I've "ruined" her son because I feed him. She has a hang nail and has to go to bed for a week, I have a blockage and drive myself to the ER after work.
