This is because the school sealed up ALL the windows on the rear of the bus.
My 98 and Sandi's bus both had leaky rear windows since new, and major rust is the natural result.

Heading in for colonoscopy and endoscopy today. They're going to biopsy some stuff, too. Yesterday was brutal with all the laxatives and that gallon of salty nasty stuff that makes you poo straight water.
Haven't had anything to drink since yesterday. Can't have anything at all till the procedure and it isn't until 1:45. Man't its gonna be a long day.
Good luck today, CB, hopefully the bad stuff is all behind you (harhar, trying for a bit of levity there)! Everyone says the prep is worst of it, once you get in there they'll give you some fun relaxing meds and you won't care what they do to you. Fingers crossed the tests all come back good.

Had both YEARLY for several years after I was diagnosed with Barret's. Have them only every 3 years now. No polyps for a while now but they did take an esoph. biopsy last time...All benign. Could save your life CB!

The first one is always the hardest.

As I write this I realize you've probably got a camera up your keister. If you chose to have sedative you likely don't care what's up there for a short while.

I like to tell the doctor that I ate a roll of peppermint lifesavers so the procedure wouldn't smell so bad. He said it didn't smell like lifesavers. And no, of course I wasn't eating lifesavers. The doctor knew all the good jokes about the procedure. A proctologist with a sense of humor, who knew?

Feel better.

lol oh yeah. Cigs, weed, and a friend even gave me a xanax to ease my tensions.
The headache I got from dehydration during the prep was almost unbearable. I've NEVER EVER been so happy to get an IV! The magic michael jackson drugs kicked in and I woke up all finished.
They removed some polyps and did some biopsies on my stomach. All that time I was worried about my colon, but turns out my stomach had some stuff that concerned the Dr.
I'll find out if its cancerous in about a week.

Yeah, I'd take the IV but not the garden hose looking camera. I think we've all been there at one time or another. That's some expensive torture.

Feel better.

The procedure has come a long way in the last decade. It was entire painless and easy. Propafol is a hell of a drug!
The tube/camera is much smaller than anything you regularly poop out anyway. Your butt hole will never know it was there.
The preparation for it is HELL, though. The dehydration was crazy!
HAPPY to be feeling GREAT. Smokin a fatty enjoying a Starbucks americano listening to jimmy cliff and toots and the maytals!
