So I better blog while I can. I have a colonoscopy scheduled tomorrow morning. Eek.
I have had a sigmoidoscoy but you can see it’s not as big a deal. Two doctors ago I had a guy who had purchased a cool new machine to do it with.
The music went well at church today. The Bach cantata movement was really pretty good. I played the Bach trio movement just fine. A good time was had by all.
Now I’m in to getting prepped for tomorrow. This involves a clear liquid diet all day today and flushing the system using the drugs the doctor gave me diluted in (no kidding) 128 oz of gatorade. Yummy.
I was reading one doctor’s online prep instructions for this he/she said one should chill it and serve over ice after allowing it to “breathe.” Clever.
Eileen is taking the day off tomorrow.
I of course have all kinds of fantasies that I will die on the colonoscopy table or they will find something seriously wrong with me soon with all these dang tests.
I have spent the afternoon reading online and practicing Mendelsson and John Adams. Now I’m starting to drink the gatorade.
They say that the prep is the worst part. I hope so.
