One does not usually connect the spiritual life with a colonoscopy procedure. I did. It happened this way. The nurse said I had good veins but she could not get the needle to stay in the vein. She took it out, stopped the bleeding and then did a second needle that took in a second vein. By now I was getting a little dizzy. She left. I got very dizzy and hit the emergency button. I thought triage showed up! Fluid bag, oxygen in the nose, test for blood sugar, and heart rate. I missed my slot for a colonoscopy I think, because they left me in the holding room for quite a while, though they came to check up. So I got a chance to meditate, pray some verbal prayers and review my spiritual life. I did not have any polyps. My God seems to be everywhere.
