In the clear

Well I made it through the Colonoscopy on Friday. I had to start the prep on Thursday and drink 64 ounces of Gatorade with miralax powder mixed into it. I hate Gatorade and I always have so having to drink this much was a chore in it self. My appt was at 10am on Friday morning and Chris and I got there at 9:45 and i was taken right back to preop. Chris stayed in the waiting room till I was in recovery. I was dressed in a little gown and had really cute socks to keep my feet warm. I went over the paperwork with Wilma my preop nurse and then waited till 11am to go in for my test. I had Wilma turn out my light while I waited because I had such a bad headache, probably because I was starving to death. I had to be on a liquid diet for 24 hours before the test. I was wheeled into the room and met my Dr who was going to preform my test and my nurse hooked me up to my cocktail IV, A mix of Demerol and Versed. I remember her telling me that I had cute hair and that it was so thick and I said no it isn't I have very thin hair and she said well it must be because you are so cute and then she lifted my bed higher and the TV screen was right in front of my face and then I was out. I guess it was a sedation that keeps you awake but you have no memory of it. I woke up in recovery with Chris beside me and as soon as I was coherent enough to get myself dressed we went home. I guess the Dr came out to talk to me but I do not remember any thing. Chris said I asked him about his book he was reading three times. The same question every time. Silly Lisa. The Dr. said everything looked good, he did take two biopsy and I will follow up with my PCP next week. I feel fine and I am glad that everything looks good in that department. Now I will have to decide the next route to take for myself and if I will be having a hysterectomy. I will keep you all informed. Thank you for having me in your prayers. I love you all and miss you so much.

Oh my gosh! I remember getting my colonoscopy! I hated drinking that crap. It made me so sick. I was totally out if it of course but Drew took good care of me! I had it done when Izzy was 6 months old. I am so glad everything looks good but then again I am not surprised. Its all female related I tell ya!
