Although we exercise and eat healthy, it's important to have health screenings, and I'm glad my husband did not put up a fuss about going in. He has a history of colon cancer in his family, so he might have inherited the tendency towards that disease; and because of that history, he needs a colonoscopy every three years. He says, "My parents aren't alive, so I can't slap them."
After the procedure, the doctor came into the recovery room and told Kurt, "You are one of the healthiest eaters I know. If anyone ever tries to tell you different, you have them see me because I have proof." (Ahem, and I like to take credit for preparing healthy foods.)
Kurt was also praised on his weight loss. Most important, he has no sign of any cancer and a clean bill of health.

Aren't you glad? We don't need to see
