It is used much the same way as you would use toothpaste but it’s in powder form. Before purchasing and trying this product I did a little research on toothpaste. The result of… Read More

Bending Knees

The days of sneaking up the stairs to surprise the kids are over. Aside from the creaking boards on the 3rd and 7th step, my knees give me away long before I reach the third step. Over the years I’ve noticed a sand paper grinding sound in my knees. At first it was in the… Read More

Oh the Aching Cuboid!

Cuboid

As recently as three days ago I didn’t know what a cuboid was. After all, it’s a funny sounding name and when folks complain of aches and pains, you never hear about the cuboid.

Maybe it’s the Poop…

Fear of Colonoscopy

Well, after all of my recent posts on the colon, colon cancer and colonoscopies, I realized I hadn’t shared my experience with my life changing event. The long and the short of it is that the prep work is the worst part and the actual colonoscopy was a breeze. The Prep Instructions There are several… Read More

Colon

There are a couple of good things that people don’t think about after having a colonoscopy. The first good thing is finding out whether or not you have a clean bill of health. Which ever way the diagnosis leads, it’s all good. If you are all clear, no polyps no tears, then that’s great. It’s… Read More

Colon Cancer

First let me start this post by saying that I’m not an expert on colon cancer. My life has indirectly been affected by it so I get to vicariously experience what it can do. One of the first signs we noticed in hind sight was blood in or on the stool. If you think you… Read More
