Nice reward for a good colonoscopy

As you know, David underwent a routine colonoscopy last Tuesday at Straub Medical Center.  It was uneventful.  He has no polyps and no inflammation.  But, he does have diverticulosis and small hemorrhoids.  No treatment is necessary.  Next colonoscopy will be scheduled in 10 years.

So, with that, I drove David to the Mexico Cantina at Ward Center for a Mexican lunch.  Surprisingly, he was not groggy, but alert enough to walk to and from the car.  On the other hand, he miscalculated the bill after our meal.  He did not add it up correctly.  When I pointed out his error, he stared at the number for quite some time until he realized his mistake.  Quite embarrassing since he was an accountant before retirement.  Well, what do you expect?  He was recovering from anesthesia and a colonoscopy.

Here are photos of our Mexican lunch in Ward Center:

The crab dishes were quite reasonable:  $22.50 for the enchiladas and $20.95 for the quesadilla.

Nice reward for a good colonoscopy!

    David is amazing. Mexican food and anesthesia! All I want to do after a colonoscopy is go home and sleep.

    Glad he got a good report. (I only ever got a five-year reprieve before I had to take the test again). So enjoy your cantina!

    Glad to hear such a good report on colonoscopy. Never experienced any after effects from anesthesia but know they can occur which is why they wouldn’t allow me to take a cab home. Food looks delicious.
