High and bye, going to bed

I don't think I'll every drink Lemon Crystal Light ever again. Mixing it with salt water does not make poison any more palatable.

I went and it was fine. They gve me the meds and it was finer. But it hurt so they gave me even more finer and I was asleep which was totally fine 'cept I didn't know Iwent to sleep til I woke up.

Now I have a burger, that I can't quite bring myself to eat yet. and a latte and now I am going to bed because I don't feel quite so fine now even tho i am high.


12:20 P.M. Awake and feeling better. Not so groggy. See all my typos and sorta bad sentences up there? Maybe this portion will be written better (but maybe not since I'm not really a writer).

I thought I'd just mention that I have just over half a gallon jug of Golytely for anyone who'd like a liquid poison laxative. You could experiment on whether you could chug it down and be ready for your own colonoscopy! I also have 1/2 a bottle of citrite of magnesium. Not quite so bad but fizzy! I threw that up too in case you were wondering.

I don't know how long I was asleep in recovery before they woke me up. The huband was sitting right next to me all that time. I don't think it was very long if I use my deductive reasoning. I was home before 9:30 a.m.

My blood pressure was 107/90 after they prepped me. Kinda high. I guess I was a little stressed. My heart rate was at 77. So I tried to slow my heart rate down to 60. I got it down to 55 and it stayed there, it jumped up and down a couple of times to 57 or so but settled in at 55. I was working on lowering my BP when they came in to start the procedure. I know that sounds freaky but I conciously try to slow my BP and heart rate and know I can affect it.

I did not like that I could feel my insides hurting. My body moaned without me telling it to do so.

The nurse cracked me up (this was before I went into the procedure room). I told her I'd started and she said, "Oh, we don't care. We're concerned only about the other hole." Ok then.

The nice hub drove to get me a hamburger and I couldn't eat it. I went to sleep and ate about 1/3 of it when I woke up. Oddly I am not hungry.

I might go back to bed for a while.

Oh man, I'm glad you're done. You're good for five years, right?

I'm not sure if it'll be 5 yrs or if I have to continue on the 3 years.

If I have to do it again they'll have to sedate me to drink that stuff. I just cannot do it again.

I'd suffer thru 5 days of not eating if I had to.
