I think there’s nothing quite so romantic as a nice colonoscopy on Valentine’s Day. And I got the bargain rate because no one else wants to schedule one today. (Yes, that was an alternative fact.)
Random things to keep in mind:
- Not eating for 36-plus hours sucks.
- Jello is disgusting and should be avoided. Ditto anything lemon or lime favored. And lemon or lime Jello is the worst of all.
- Italian ice is your friend.
- So are flushable wipes and petroleum jelly. Trust me on this.
It’s been a sucky two days, but as someone who has already lived through one flavor of cancer, I’m all about prevention and/or early detection of any others.
I’m also incredibly hungry. Only four more hours till solid food!
