No.... the prep the night before was not easy or good.
This is what I looked liked prior to heading out the door to the surgical center where the kind nurse placed a needle in the top of my hand to prepare me for the knock out drug in the surgical room.
Hubby on the other hand looked svelt and darlingly handsome for our departure, but then he always does. Why don't men ever look like crap? Must be his great salt and pepper wavy hair that has something to do with it. My god.... the man looks great even when he's grumpy and down with a death defying illness... like the flu, or a cold.
He called to me to come outside before we left and told me it was VERY pretty out there.
He was right.
We had had a bit of early morning ice and the sun was breaking through and melting it from the branches of the red bud tree and the forest around us.
I think this was a sign that it was going to be a good day, either that or someone was simply giving me the gift of my last day on earth being one to be remembered.
Things went smoothly at the surgical center and I could not have asked for a better group in a medical team. Everyone was just sweet as peaches and cream and by the time I awoke 45 minutes after going lights out I was of course joking with all those around me within ear shot.
I was offered a package of crackers with peanut butter, or my other choice of crackers with cheese. I asked for both and after giving me a funny look, the nurse gave me both. I WAS HUNGRY.
A glass of soda washed it all down and within a few minutes I was dressed and ready to be wheeled out into the sunshine
and head home.
There was a cheeseburger and my own bed at home calling my name.
*for those of you who asked.... my husband drove me to and from the surgical center and waited there for me throughout the time I was there..... he is a keeper you know*
The results were, by the way, very good and they won't be seeing my gorgeous
butt face for another five years.
If you are over 50 and have not yet had a colonoscopy or have a history of high percentage of any kind of cancer within your family then please contact your doctor today and go gitter done.
It's important and your family and friends deserve that you go, so do them this favor.
The procedure is easy peasy.
The prep.... well... not so much fun.
Sorry, but that's the truth of it.
