Caution the content of this blog may not be pleasant:
I'm going for my first colonoscopy tomorrow! OMG Doesn't that sound like a freakin blast???
OK maybe not so much. However from what I understand it is an important part of the whole crohn's disease.
I'm not tooooo worried about it. Ok maybe a little.
Right now I've been on a clear liquid diet for over 12hrs (waking hours) I've had my first round of osmoprep (cleaning pills) and I'm quickly becoming close friends with my potty.
Luckily I have a blackberry and a magazine.
I really could use some food. I've figured out that total today with all my "clear liquids" I'll total about 800 calories. That includes a gallon of "light" apple "juice" and a carton of chicken broth.
Between the lack of calories / the high bump up of water/ and the "cleaning" pills I think I should be in a good place to start off tomorrow with clean foods! Well after I'm aloud to eat that is.
I have a house full of healthy food. I'm going to track my calories and choices. I realize now after my diagnosis what an integral part food and nutrition are going to play in my health.
I have soup taken out of the freeze and plan on having soup and a grilled cheese and hitting the hay when I get home tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by, Please keep me in your prayers tomorrow that they dont find anything creepy in there!
