YAY ALLIE AND OSCAR!!!
I loved this story and loved reading it on your blog too. I am so glad you are healthy and so glad this wasn't bad.
I can't believe the dr putting his finger in your stoma equals a sigmoidoscopy! LOL
And the best part...obviously...no diarrhea upon waking up! At my last scope, I had diarrhea all over the bed when I woke up cuz they wouldn't let me go to the bathroom fast enough. That was a week before my surgery. So glad I won't ever have to do that again!!!
