Smile for the camera.

.

Today was the day, and I just spent the last 24 hours prepping my husband for his close up.

Add a little chicken broth and a whole lotta Gatorade and you’re looking at everything my husband has had to eat for a day and a half. To say he was cranky this morning was a gross understatement.

New hospital policy had me sitting outside in my car during the procedure as I was no longer allowed in the waiting room. He wasn’t supposed to drive after the colonoscopy, so I was his taxi. The paperwork made it quite clear what’s forbidden and while I can understand not driving or operating heavy machinery after the relax and unpucker your butt medication, it also said you can’t cook.

Are they afraid your addled brain will add too much garlic to the Scampi…. or over sear the pot roast? Unfortunate, but hardly deserving of a medical warning.

All went well and nothing that shouldn’t have been there was found. As we were walking out of the hospital the husband gave me a blow by blow description I could have done without, but he watched the whole thing on some kind of video screen and was eager to share.

Good thing there was a wall of Mark Chagall chicken prints for me to focus on instead.

  1. My first one was in the hospital while recovering from another problem. It was pretty entertaining. LOTS of morphine, and a German TV crew filming it for a documentary on the new full color scanner that was manufactured there. Ever seen one in full color? Greens and pale fuchsias that make look like the insides of a hot air balloon.

      1. It really is quite amazing to watch! But to change the focus, Gail watched my cataract suyrgery on closed circuit TV, and talked about it for weeks. When my second cataract surgery was coming up, she was more excited than I was. She could not wait to see the rerun!

  2. Some tests are more difficult to study for than others. Or to use a euphemism some doors are not meant to be slammed shut so often. And in er closing er never mind, let’s just not go down that rabbit hole…

  3. It’s not fun, but it is necessary. I added in frozen fruit pops for the day before and as cranky as I usually get when I’m hangry, I did better than expected. My husband was shocked that I didn’t try to murder him. 😳
    I’m glad all went well for your honey.
