Tomorrow, I go for a colonoscopy. That means liquid diet today. I am mostly prepared - I have diet lemon popsicles and diet lemon kosher jello, and a can of "lower sodium" chicken broth, and Jonathan can get better stuff later. I can have coffee and water, too. In my mind, this is not a fast. Hello - I can drink. I can consume pretend food. I just can't have anything truly solid or dark. It's still not fun.
I'm getting it done in a hospital instead of a clinic because last time I had a large (benign) polyp. My doctor prefers to remove large ones in the hospital.
I know I'm fine and I was fine last time, too, but I'm only a couple years younger than my father was when he had his cancer. Which after surgery and chemo, he survived for 20 more years to die of complications following heart surgery plus his own stubbornness. Just about ten years ago. So whatever, I'll be fine. But, you know, I'm still a bit worried.
