BuffyBear's Journal, 07 March 2013

Got lots to do today which is a good thing because it will keep my mind off food (in prep for my colonoscopy tomorrow). I absolutely do not know how people fast. It is only 10 AM and I am already on my second bowl of jello. Can't wait to get home tonight so I can have my nice bowl of chicken broth and my pineapple Popsicle.

Other than me feeling sorry for myself, my day is going well. The sun is shining and it is actually warming up out there. I am hoping to be able to work outside this weekend. Hey Bren and DairyKing - maybe I can get DH to bring me a load of (well aged) chicken manure!

I have plenty of cow manure but no chickens..I hate those things..had to gather eggs when I was younger and the rooster chased me around and tried to flogg me...I wante mama to fix him for supper but she never would..:O)..I'll be thinking of you today...:O)

I really Still remember my prep very well, reminds me of how much I didn't like jello prior to it & now even less. Nice warm yummy chicken broth. I feel sorry for you too, & I don't know how people fast either. At least the sun is shining & it is warming up, really seems like spring is really closer when the sun shines AND it gets warmer. I won't be working outside anytime soon, glad you can! I hope all goes well for you tomorrow!!

The day will be over before you know it! Glad the sun is shining and you have a garden to go to when it gets warmer.

Bren - Thanks for the tip - I won't have the pleasure of trying that stuff until this afternoon. And I am taking the day off tomorrow!

GG - I am not a jello fan either, but it does remind my tummy of solid food. Hope you can get some running in. I'll be thinking of you this weekend while I'm out in the 60 degree weather.

Buffy, I hate the prep for a colonoscopy. I am not a big fan of Jello either, but at least it feels solid! LOL The drink is the worst, YUCK. Good luck and I'll say some prayers that the rest of your day passes quickly so you can get this done and get some solid food!. Have a great day!

Buffy....it may not be as bad as you think. DH and I had different gastroenterologists and each had his own recommendation for colonoscopy prep. DH got a LOT of strange stuff to drink and had a hard time getting it all down. But MY GE(gotta love him) had a different prep.....liquids all day, same as you, but then a very small amount of a different liquid that was fairly good-tasting. It wasn't a problem at all! Hope you've got the routine that MY GE gave me. Hang in there, today is actually a harder day to get through than tomorrow. Don't forget to take some food with you tomorrow so you can have something right after!

Heather - not really. I am a whine ass. If it were you - you'd be out cycling or lifting weights.

Sandy - I think I've got what your DH was given for prep - 2 bottles! But I can add my own mixers. And thanks for the reminder to take food with me - I'll bring some for DH as well - he'll probably need it more than me!

Any time I am required to fast, all I can think about is food!! :) Your colonoscopy will be here and gone before you know it...

Oh Girl, I did that last week! I was up all night enjoying my new toilet. Hope yours goes smoothly. Funny thing I probably drank more calories than I eat in a day and I still felt SO DEPRIVED. It is a psyche thing for sure. Just think how much water and weight you are going to lose. I got on the scale the morning of and had dropped a few pounds!
