Bloodied and sleepy

The prelude to colonoscopies is far worse than the procedure itself. That "clean out the system" glop works far too well, from my point of view.

The procedure discovered five as-yet-unbiopsied polyps, two large, three small, all removed. The worst of it is that because they clamped off a couple of the bleeding stumps, I have to remain on a liquid diet for the balance of today and a soft diet for the next two days. Man. I was and am dying for a Big Mac!

Because I had to get up four hours earlier than the 9:30am procedure to take the second half of the glop, the sedative knocked me right out. I woke up in recovery at 12:10pm.

My heart bleeds for you. Hey, at least they got the polyps out. You just think you won't survive.
