The Day before the Surgery

So this isn't nearly as bad as the name of the video implies.

I feel like Tony's expression here sums up how I felt about having these tests ordered...
Basically when I was panicked about what this whole process was going to be like I watched several vlogs (while sipping that horrible, horrible drink) and it helped calm me down). And that's why I kept talking to my camera (not graphically) about how I was feeling because I figured that there were only a half dozen vlogs out there talking about this kind of embarrassing process and they were super helpful to me.

And I had vlogged out day already.

So I threw it altogether, from our trip to Walmart to buy prep supplies to mowing the lawn while waiting for six o'clock and the time to drink the solution to arrive.

And then Paul got home and I started drinking and I kept talking (again not graphically) about how I was feeling and what it tasted like (warm, thick, super sweet 7 Up was my take on the mixture).

For anyone who's wondered, what the day before a Colonoscopy and Upper Endoscopy are like, this is the video for you. Because I have never been so thankful for Youtube as I was when it calmed me down watching videos during my prep.

And as everyone says, the prep is completely and totally the worst part.

I love comments and I read every single comment that comes in (and I try to respond when the little ones aren't distracting me to the point that it's impossible!). Please show kindness to each other and our family in the comment box. After all, we're all real people on the other side of the screen!
