The Joys of my day..........

I don't know if any of you read the post back in November about the colonoscopy the doctor considered doing if I wanted him to. Y'all know it wasn't at the top of my list. Anyway the new doctor I am going to felt it was needed and didn't give me a choice. So tomorrow I will get to take part in the colorectal fun known as a colonoscopy. Joy floods my soul. And from what I understand, I expect other floods to come.A friend told me this morning that she didn't want to alarm me, but I might want to get some Depends. Okay, I'm a little afraid now. I thought I had a few more years before I was in the adult pull-ups.

I begin my preparations, this afternoon. By preparations I mean drinking 20 ounces of corn syrup mixed with club soda and lemon juice also known as Magnesium Citrate. Not to mention the dozen or so laxatives you get to ingest. At least it's something solid. I had to stop all solid foods at 12:00 last night and can't have anything else to eat until tomorrow around 4:00 when I leave the doctor's office. All liquids today. I think that will be the hardest part for me. I'm not one to skip many meals. Thus my svelte size 14 waist. For once I am glad to have a sinus infection. Is drainage considered a solid, at least my stomach isn't completely empty.

Since I'm confined to the house, I am sure I'll be posting more later.

Have a fun afternoon!

Um, yuck. On so many levels. Hope it's not too miserable and that all goes smoothly.

Having to go without food for that long is enough to make me avoid a colonoscopy! Is it any wonder that dieting doesn't work for me?

I hope it goes well and is over quickly!
