The Prep

One of the "joys" of turning 50 is having to get a colonoscopy. Happens tomorrow for dear old Dawn E. Girl. And so today I left work early to start my regimen of pills and water to clean me out. It's 7:59 as I write this, about time for round 2 of pills, and so far it's not been nearly as dramatic as I'd thought it'd be. TMI, I'm sure, but keepin' it real, keepin' it real.

Last night, though, I enjoyed an evening outside, chilly temps, Gideon at my feet, and a chiminea stoked and warming. Sat outside from 6:00 until well after dark. The fireside is one of my weaknesses.

For the record, I love your real-ness. Good luck tomorrow.

The actual test is a piece of cake, they put you in a bit of a twilight sleep, and you never know what happens. I hated the prep the most!! The last set of pills almost made me hurl the next morning :(

I'm glad I did the pill though and not the liquid drink thing. Good luck, I'm sure you are fine :)
