c2bs2d0, the pill

couch to black snake (colonoscopy) #2 day 0

well last night lined up all my supplies
dulcolax laxative tabs, magnesium(dont they make flares
out of this for the military) citrate
sprite nice and cold

and per advise from relatives that have to have this often-
small jar of vaselline and baby wipes
was best advice that was received

was told to mix the cold mag citrate with cold sprite
to make it easier to go down and also to drink it with
a straw
would hate to see what warm mag citrate would taste like
actually just wanted to drink the whole dam thing and get
it over with-might have thrown up though
then might have to start over again-that would be bad

well did not get to watch a lot of the football game last night
between minnesota and philadelphia
did not get much sleep last night either as had to make
frequent trips to you know where
finally just got up a hour ago
but keep getting interrupted trying to do this blog

the prep worked well am sure the colonoscopist will give
me a high prep rating today

in a few hours will get it done and will sleep good this afternoon
hopefully next one will be in 10 years maybe

good luck to my partner and to a nurses husband who is
getting their black snake today

get yours if you have not had it

my wife likes the side effect of this medicine
no not that side effect

it makes me slightly hyper and fitgitty so am able to
get a lot done in the am after i take it
(so this is what add hyperactive type feels like)

the other side effect is insomnia
but have found an afternoon night helps a lot with that
