R.I.P. Robin Gibb

Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb, 62, died on Sunday after a harrowing battle with colon cancer that spread to his liver. Despite aggressive chemotherapy and two emergency operations in the past two months, the disco star—remembered for hit songs from“Stayin’ Alive” and “Saturday Night Fever”—developed brain swelling due to liver failure, and pneumonia. He slipped into a coma, waking briefly on May 21 after his family spent days singing to him at his bedside.

For heaven's sake everyone.........you should get your first colonoscopy at age 50!  My children just had a fit and kept hounding me when one of our local TV personalities died at age 52,  Again, probably his ending could have been altered if he had just had the test.

The only really bad part was the prep..........the yucky stuff you drink, but other than that, the procedure was not uncomfortable at all.  I think I even lost a few pounds!  Ha Ha.
