So, I was supposed to have my baseline colonoscopy done at 50. But when I was 50 things got in the way and there was never time. I had it scheduled a few times that year but something always ‘came up’. Last year, same deal. Sometimes it was Cleveland Clinic that cancelled sometimes me. Regardless, there was never time.
This year, I know I needed to make time even though there isn’t time. Yay me.
Today I’m working from home so I can start my split prep for tomorrow’s procedure.
I’m drinking my clear liquids 8oz an hour all day. I’m eating Popsicles. I will try to gag down Jello but I’m so not into Jello. Ever since I lived on nothing but clear liquid diet when I was in high school and had appendicitis (nope, a 4 inch diseased appendix means I wasn’t just attention seeking and being difficult). Eating nothing but jello and Flavor aid for two weeks means I have to still force down Jello if it is just Jello after all of these years.
So… a day of black coffee and tea, banana Popcicles, and orange and green Jello then my evening of prepping for tomorrows adventure.
Am I a little concerned about what they might find? Sure. I know in my head that it is a baseline, but there is always a chance they will actually find something.
Am I not in a good place since I’m off my RA meds preparing for the procedure (just in case… don’t want an infection if something gets nicked)… oh I’m way not in a good place there. Monday is my infusion so I’m not feeling fabulous anyway then to top it off not being able to take my once a day pills… my hands have been complaining for a few days now. Nothing horrible, just nothing fabulous. I’m SO looking forward to Monday. I’m living on Tiger Balm right now.
Have a marvelous hump day peeps.
love and light
