I'm over 50 now and it's time to take my health seriously, including the less desirable parts. That said, I headed up to Decatur on Monday, March 11th for a meeting with my gastroenterologist. I never thought I'd have one of those. After my appointment the receptionist told me there was a cancellation for a "procedure" the following Friday. I said sign me up! I'm guess I'm just lucky that way.
With my next appointment scheduled and a list of items to buy in-hand Susan and I stopped at the store to stock up on the way home. I could eat broth, chicken or beef, popsicles, Gatorade, and Lime Jello. Yummy! I'd use this wide assortment of delicious treats to wash down 2 Dulcolax laxative tablets at 3pm, 8.3 ounces (238 grams) or 14 once-daily doses of Miralax in 64 ounces of Lemon-Line Gatorade at 5pm, followed 20 minutes later by a bottle of Magnesium Citrate, and topped off with 2 more Dulcolax tablets at 8pm.
The last thing on the list was Charmin. I wouldn't want to run out of that.
And when the Charmin just won't cut it anymore, the bidet will come in handy. I sure am glad we have one of those.
I'm only a few hours into the fasting and I'm already starving. I put a piece of chocolate in my mouth before I even realized it...but I spit it out. The big question is how will this affect my performance during the Tour de Pike century ride on Saturday.
Thanks for reading.
