Bowel Prep

Well, dear readers of the page, today is my personal day of hell, otherwise known as bowel prep. Surgery is tomorrow, so the surgeon wants me squeaky clean. What this means for me is no solid food at all today. Starting at 12am and going through tomorrow.

Bowel prep proper starts at 12pm with one bottle of magnesium citrate and three dulcolax pills. From there it just gets worse. I have to drink another half bottle of mag citrate at 10pm. 10 mother fucking pm! I am usually in bed between 8-9pm. How the fuck am I going to stay up that long? Then, after pooping my guts out, I will go to bed for a few hours, before waking up at 4am to give myself a fleet enema. Yay. Then a shower with anti bacterial soap for 10 minutes, before heading off to the hospital.

I certainly hope surgery is early in the morning tomorrow. The earlier, the better. I hate waiting around and will definitely want to eat some yummy hospital food again, before hopefully being released on Wednesday, so that I can eat better food. As you all can tell, my thoughts are all about yummy food.

We went to the continental breakfast this morning so Egg could get some food. It all looked so delicious, and I couldn’t have any of it. Instead, I had two glasses of apple juice. I’m drinking Sprite right now. I can’t have orange juice because it has pulp in it. NO pulp. Oh well, that’s all I have right now.

p.s. We walked to Target this morning to get some liquid for me, and some provisions for Egg. That was fun. But now, I need to be near a toilet, hahaha.
