Well, turns out I will have to have the dreaded col.on.os.co.py. I am so anxious and stressed about it that I had knots in my stomach yesterday and was panicking and crying. So, I had my primary care doctor call in a prescription for kl.on.o.pin for me. Thank goodness he is so nice. He even called to see if I wanted to talk about it. I'm glad to have the RX. Last night was the first night in the last several days that I slept well. No tossing and turning. No waking up at all.
Now, for the reason for the title of this post. As part of the dreaded procedure, I have to have a total liquid diet all day today. Fortunately, they include jello as a liquid. Go figure. The only restriction is that you can't have anything red or purple. So, this morning, I am "enjoying" a "delicious" little plastic cup of green jello. I splurged and skipped the low calorie one and went for the package with the kid-friendly cartoon characters on it. I will also be choking down plain chicken or beef broth during the day. And I will be drinking clear gatorade, ginger ale, and water. What a smorgasbord! not. Anyways, ladies, I am offering all of this up for you.
I will also be offering up the totally disgusting "prep" that I have to drink tonight. You wouldn't believe how expensive this disgusting stuff is. I had to pay $50 out of pocket for what is essentially, salt water. So, with every disgusting sip of this concoction that will do horrendous things to my innards, I will be praying for babies for you all.
To top it all off, I will be offering up the procedure itself. I hate, hate, hate, and dread, dread, dread IV's. I am anxious just thinking about a nurse coming at me with that "kit." And, I get super sick from anesthesia. And, I certainly don't want to be violated in the way I will Thursday morning.
With every step of this process, I will be offering up these crosses for you ladies. Lord, bring on the babies! Wouldn't that just be hilarious, though? A col.on.os.co.py as an IF cure? ha ha ha
