Gettin' ready for tomorrow

Tomorrow's the big day for stage one of the tumor hunt. 
I have my endoscopy and colonoscopy at 12:00 tomorrow which means I got to spend all day today prepping for it.
Lucky me!  

The kids were so jealous that I got to eat Jello for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

If you've had a colonoscopy before
 you know how much fun the next part is.

You have to drink four liters of the grossest tasting liquid possible that makes you poop more than you ever have in your entire life. 

I tried to add some Crystal Light to the mix and drinking from a straw to help it go down a little easier but it didn't help! 
I'm supposed to have the whole bottle down by bedtime tonight but it's not looking good. 
I have 1/4 of the bottle left and my throat will not let any more of that stuff go down. literally. 

Anyways, I let you know how the procedure went later tomorrow. 
Wish me luck and pray for me!

Put the Peg in a blender with some ice - it makes it super cold which makes it a little easier to swallow. Plus you don't taste that sliminess as much (it's that salty, slimy taste that is SOOOO horrible!)

I sympathize with you - I had to drink 4 liters twice a day for 2 weeks and it's hard to keep it down!!!

Good luck with the tests. I had to have an endoscopy after I had my daughter to look for some ulcers. It wasn't bad. Hope yours goes smoothly!
