Tonight I am going thru the preparation to have one of those tests that you can't study for at the hospital tomorrow.

Of course this includes drinking as much of a gallon of laxative that you can choke down  after supper, that you don't get anything anyway.

So needless to say, I have not spent any time thinking about a blog for tonight, because I have been making the proverbial trips into the little room.

So perhaps I will ask that you come back tomorrow and see if I am still alive by then.  I don't know of anyone that has passed from this procedure, and I know that many if not most of you have had this experience yourselves so chance are that I will be back.

Perhaps I will have better ideas by then on what might be interesting for a blog.

  1. Good luck today Rod! Those kind of tests are definitely not fun, although by now you are past the worst part - drinking that yucky stuff!! :(

  2. Oh boy. Been there, done that. Good luck. I actually found that the most uncomfortable part of the "test" was lying on the very hard table. Man did my hips hurt! Anal probe lady said they couldn't use padding since some folks can't quite control all their "functions"? I explained to her that at that point I could probably hang off a rope with my arse muscles, having gone through the previous day's "visits". Between that and humming "Burning ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash, we did at least have something to chuckle about!
    Still can't say it's that much of a fun experience though.

  3. I'll be following in your footsteps on the 30th!

  4. Good luck with your tests, Rod!

  5. We wish you all the best. The prep for those tests is not fun.

  6. Well, now ya got me really scared!!

  7. I feel for you Rod,let me know if you need a 5 gallon jug of Koapectate sent your way. Or take those little green pills by the shovel full.Be safe out there. Sam & Donna.
