Anesthesia Made My Day

Today I took Grant to the doctor for an upper GI.  He has been dealing and dealing with parasites since he came home from Brazil, so hopefully this is the last of procedures for a while.  Always a fun thing for a 21 year old to do.  He had an Academy Award Performance for me afterwards.  My quiet and shy-ish son was gone.  This young man kept repeating over and over "Man, that was the best sleep ever!  How long was I out?  That was the best sleep EVER.  Can I get a prescription for that?  Good Heavens, that's a nasty taste in my mouth.  Can I have Bojangles for lunch?  Man, that was the best sleep ever!  Can I get a prescription for that?  Hey, let's get Bojangles for lunch."

Of course he has no recall of this, swears I wasn't there, and can't believe how animated he was. Now I know why people film their kids after surgery.    And the good news - they actually found something WOOT!  Parasitic bacterial infection in his esophagus and stomach.  Which led to another amusing conversation.  Jade crossed the border today after a month in Canada.  She says things like "Dude, you don't even know how filled with pride I am right now to be in America" to which Grant replied, "Well, yes I do - just ask my gastroenterologist!"

Most parents of 18 and 21 year olds just hear about dates and college.  I get parasites and pride.

I don't know why I am starting this...

So all my friends (and by all, I mean a few that I actually listen to) keep telling me to start a blog.  So I am.  Tonight.  While I should have already packed a bag to go out of town tomorrow morning (today???), I was creating this blog.  Which currently has ZERO followers.  But I digress.  So, this will be my can't-believe-that-actually-happened and check-this-out blog for all the weird, random, funny, and other weirdness that I call my life. 

While I don't always blog, when I do it will be incredibly funny.  To be continued...
