Mama Deb


1. Clear liquid diet
2. Prospect of icky drink later on in the day
3. Housefilk that I can't attend because of (1) and (2).
4. Argument with husband about "what snacks do you want me to get for you for after colonoscopy" because
a. Don't have any idea
b. Don't want to think about food
c. haven't had coffee yet

We worked out the snack thing - those of you who've been through this, will diluted V8 and wheat crackers work? I don't do fruit juices, and we're somewhat worried that the snacks provided by the doctor won't be kosher. (Husband initially suggested *soy milk* and the idea turned my stomach. Soy milk is stuff to put on cereal, not a beverage, in my mind. I think he thought he might like cow's milk in such a situation.)

Coffee situation is remedied - fortunately, I'm permitted black coffee. And also fortunately, that's how I prefer my coffee.

Okay, so. At this point, I have to say that the worst part of chugging a cup of cold liquid every ten minutes is that it's *cold*. As I suspected, a day of only chicken broth, coffee and lemon-lime sugar-free popsicles and my rather efficient metabolism (I'm fat because I process food quickly and thoroughly. I'm designed for famine) has left relatively little for it to work on.

But I'm now very, very cold. I think I'm going to drink something hot - probably coffee, since I want to save the last of my chicken broth for later - when I finish the dose. 1 more to go!
