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!

    Thinking of you, buddy. I'll be here to support you in your tracking and healthy/clean eating. Hang in there. It'll all be over before you know it. If it's anything like the IV Sedation they gave me, you'll not remember a thing
