-Short Post-

Today is a happy Friday. My dear friend is coming home and we'll get to spend some much needed catch-up time together!

Yippee!! It's over! Done! Finito! I won't have to worry about doing that thing again for another 5 years! Actually, the colonoscopy itself wasn't that bad. I mean, I was out of it with the sleepy juice they put in my IV. Also, they added something for the nausea I was experiencing. All in all, two days of discomfort is nothing compared to the ravaging effects that colon cancer has on your body...on your life...when it goes undetected. And having seen what my mom went thru when she was dying with colon cancer at the same age I am now, I NEVER want to experience that, nor put my family through the torture. So. I'm taking this opportunity to start eating a little better, and exercising a little more. I feel good. I'm going to bed now. Good night.

The cleanse...cont.

I will never drink anything ever again...at least not anything with strawberry/guava flavoring! I'm having a really hard time drinking the water I need to so I don't get dehydrated. Why am I being such a boob?? I'm really nauseated right now. I would really like to just go to sleep....I'm afraid to...
Well I did go to sleep. At least I think I did...it was a very unsettled nights sleep. And I had really weird dreams. Mail dreams where I delivered a puppy to the wrong address, couldn't get my mail delivered,etc. Also I dreamed that I was locked in someones backyard and instead of a guard dog, there was a lion. ...See? Weird!
I'm still nauseated and my head is killing me, but I can't take anything for my headache yet. But I'm as empty as I've been in years!

The cleanse starts today...yuck.

Ok I know I'm a big baby, but I hate drinking stuff that I THINK might be gross. I start my cleanse today for my colonoscopy tomorrow. Isn't there an easier way?? I'm mixing the nasty powder with strawberry guava water. It's carbonated and I don't drink pop, so I hope I can down this stuff. I didn't really want to drink anything that I really like because I'm afraid I won't ever want to drink it again!

I just drank (is drank a real word??) a bottle of that nasty stuff. Not good. >keep the end (no pun intended) in mind, Kathy< Only three more bottles to go, in an hour and 40 minutes..OIY!
