The Hose

The Turkey is on the two-year plan with respect to colonoscopies, due to a chronic condition called polyposis. So, it was with the usual delight that I retrieved my telephone messages one day last week and heard a reminder from my colorectal surgeon’s office that told me it was time to schedule this year’s fun encounter with the six-foot hose. Be that as it may, this is not a rant about the joys of this invasive procedure. Instead, it is another installment in my ongoing series of bloviations about the health care morass.
