I have an appointment today in a few hours to have both ends scoped--a colonoscopy and an endoscopy--so I will let someone else basically write my post.
I have chosen Dave Barry who is a Pulitzer Prize winning humor columnist for the Miami Herald. Hey, go for the best I say.
Dave wrote a really funny column several years ago about his first colonoscopy. Oddly, I have found his graphic yet funny account quite comforting. If you are facing one or have all ready had one, you can appreciate his take on the preparation and procedure. If you are still putting it off, I hope you will consider taking the plunge. It can be a lifesaver and--the prep will seem funny eventually.
Yesterday was a bit busy as I hung out close to the bathroom so I didn't get any visiting done. Today I am very sleepy and 3 pounds lighter which implies that I just might have been full of --it. So I am off to be probed and shall leave you in his capable hands. Enjoy the virtual trip via Dave.
See ya later on your posts when I get home, had a nap, rehydrated, eaten some almost solid food and am feeling less---empty.
TUESDAY MORNING: I am so happy that so many of you know and appreciate Dave. He is a hoot and thank you so much for your good wishes. The tests went partially well. The endoscope went OK but they couldn't do the colonoscopy since it seems I have a fragile colon. Another blessing of old age Sooo, today I go for a barium enema--doesn't that sound delightfully appealing? The worst part is that I have had to keep my colon sparkling clean for the second procedure so I still haven't eaten anything solid since Saturday around 4 PM. That rumble you hear is an unbelieving stomach.
See ya soon.
