    Tomorrow isn't going to be fun!

    Yep, I'm going through the Middle Aged Man's right of passage......

    They finally got around to getting my scope scheduled and today, I get to take the wonderful magic cleanout solution and enjoy a liquid diet.

    I'm not looking forward to this at all.

    On the show 2 1/2 men there was a pretty good show on this. The evil brother paid the doctor to dress up in the other brother's nightmare.

    So... have you had any nightmares and where are you having it done?

    I'll be joining you soon enough, Tom. I've got cancer in my immediate family, so it happens ten years earlier for me. Do me a favor, and DON'T tell me what to expect.....

    It's really not so bad, Tom. The worst part is the vile, bitter crap you have to drink the day before. The rest is a piece of cake.

    And if you don't need heavy sedation, you can even watch the screen, and it's kinda like watchin' that science fiction film from years ago -- can't recall the name -- where there was a medical crew shrunk down to go inside the body of one of their colleagues to battle some kind of infection or something. Anyone remember that film, BTW?

    Yeah, that's it! That was a great film. Especially near the end, when they had to get out fast before time ran out and they all got big again!

    Good luck, Tom. You'll be quite all right, once you managed to choke down that vile crappy liquid. <bleeeeah>

    Dad was going in for some sort of thing where they used a laser in his rear end. Doc gave him a solution to drink that the doc told him would eliminate "gas pockets" in his innards. He swears that that night he had a nightmare in which the doc did hit a "gas pocket" with the laser. In this dream, the explosion brought dad out from under anethesia to find the doc with all his facial hair burned off and dad's rectum blown across the room and stuck to the far wall of the operating room.

    Good Luck Tom!!!!!

    Tom- As a veteran, I can tell you that it's not really that bad. First, make sure your Drano equivalent (Go-Lytely, or whatever the doc prescribed) is chilled. It tastes much, much worse if it's even close to room temperature. Second, drink it through a straw, aim it at the back of your tongue and let it just roll down the gullet. Third, the "end results" (as it were) are not bad to deal with- like a case of turista without the nausea and vomiting and of course the trip to Mexico (and, alas, without the tasty empanadas...)- it will be all over in a couple of hours.

    Finally, know that what you're going through today will be justly reward tomorrow with really great drugs . Seriously- be very, very careful with doing anything that demands any attention tomorrow. You'll think you're fully compos mentis tomorrow, even tomorrow night. But trust me, you won't be- just relax and enjoy. You'll be back to normal first thing Wednesday AM, after having had what you'll no doubt call the best night's sleep of your life.

    Good luck, and all the best!

    If you just drank that stuff we're probably not going to hear from you for awhile...unless you have a wireless laptop.

    Heh. Actually once it starts, evacuation is pretty quickly forthcoming, and can be somewhat of an, um, explosive moment! With only a bit of leftovers off and on for the next several hours.
