Preparing......

Okay, it's Sun. Oct. 22 at 12:21 AM and I have started preparing for a medical testing procedure to be done early Monday morning. I don't want to go into great detail about what it entails. Suffice it to say that the procedure won't be done from the waist up. Nelly works for doctors who do this all the time. If they email you with questions, Nelly, just ignore them!

So from here on until after the procedure Monday morning, I am allowed no solid food. Only clear liquids, which can include broth, jello, coffee, tea, soda, fruit juices without pulp, popsicles, Kool-Aid and hard candy.

On top of all this I have to take some medication that will flush my system "sparkling clean". I believe I will be up most of the night with the 'cleaning my system' part of it. So, not only will I be grumpy from being hungry, I will also be grumpy from lack of sleep!

I originally thought that we would just leave the house on Sunday early afternoon and go for a long ride to distract my thoughts from my deprivation from food, but I have been told by others who have had this procedure done that that will not be a viable option for me as I will need to remain very close to the porcelain facilities for the afore mentioned cleansing! GREAT!!

Since I didn't get any response from anyone who was willing to go to my mammie mashing in my place, there is no need to ask for volunteers for this either, right? All righty then.......see ya later!!!

My menu for after the procedure is to eat anything and everything in sight! LOL I feel sorry for the doctors and nurses that will have to deal with me before the procedure!

Ame said...

i don't feel sorry for them at all - they do this all the time - they're probably numb to irritable people - just for fun, ask them how they did when they had this procedure done to see if they've ever had to do what they're doing to you! hehehehehe

Uh..as good a friend as you are to me Martie and as much as I cherish that...I'm regretfully informing you that I can't volunteer to take your place. I have uh...a hair and nail appointment?

Hope everything comes out alright ;) (Pun intended)
