Ah...Preparation Day!

I am not happy today, my blogger buddies.

  Why? 

Today is "preparation day."


"****NO SOLID FOODS THE DAY BEFORE YOUR PROCEDURE OR THE DAY OF YOUR PROCEDURE***"

Do you know how cranky I'm going to be that I can't eat today?  Do you know how many liquids I have to consume today?  I know.  I know.  I know what you're saying..."Millions of people do this, JP."

And, you're right...I just wish I wasn't one of them!!

P.S.  I wonder how much weight you loose doing this.  I mean not eating for 30 hours has got to make you shed a few pounds, don't you think?  Talk about cleaning out your pipes!!!

oh no!! i'm waaaay behind here...what kind of procedure??

yeah, it's a drag having to NOT put anything in your stomach before surgery...BUT if you realize that there's nothing in stomach to (*poop*) out while 'under'...than you'll appreciate it a little more! haha!!

take care...and after your surgery is over...and you're on the mend...have a HAPPY rest of the YEAR JP!! :))

Dare I ask in preparation for what?

That is a long time to go without sustenance. I sympathize with you!

Whatever it is I hope it is simple, painless, over with quickly.

Oh dear. Are you going through The Scope? Like I did last summer? Soooooo not doing that again. I mean it too. Taking that many doses of laxatives is something I.Will.Not.Repeat. Ugh. Hope your ordeal goes more quickly and smoother than mine. I still have blueberry icees in the fridge from mine, if you get sick of chicken broth and gingerale.

Good luck, dear. Hope everything works out fine.

And yes, feel free to use the quote -- glad you liked it! :)

No food? Yuck. I wonder what diabetics do because they have to eat. Hmmmm....

I think I need one of these "detox" days - just not for a medical procedure reason...

Oh my goodness = prayers are with you today my dear friend. Good luck - I know what you have to do tomorrow - mine is in about 6 months.

The test is a piece of cake, but oh that prep!

Best wishes.

I hate fasting. And I don't like to miss my coffee either. But like all things, it will soon be over and you will be so glad you had it done. I wish you all the best with whatever test you are having.--Inger
