For those of you who don't follow me on Twitter, I survived my colonoscopy with a clean bill of health. I have to go back to the doctor in a year and hopefully, won't have to repeat the procedure until 2014!

Everyone was right about the worst part being the drinking of the "cleansing" meds. Here's how it went:
6pm, 1st 8 ounce glass: That's really not all that bad. I don't know what the fuss if about. It's like a salty orange drink.
6:15 pm, 2nd 8 ounce glass: A really salty, orange drink.
6:30pm, 3rd 8 ounce glass: Damn, that's salty. And the citrus flavor is not doing anything to help the situation. Hey, what's that noise?  Is that my stomach?
6:50pm, 4th 8 ounce glass: MOTHERFUCKER! I can barely choke this down.
I went to mix up my 2am dosage and was interrupted by something that I will not describe. Let's just say, the meds kicked it.
2am, 5th 8 ounce glass: This is horrible but I can do this. I must do this.
2:20am, 6th 8 ounce glass: I'm not going to make it.
2:40am, 7th 8 ounce glass: Just one more after this one. Just one more after this one. Just one more after this one.
3:00 am, 8th (and final) 8 ounce glass: Just drink. Don't think about it. Drink it. (Chugs it) VICTORY IS MINE!

As for the procedure, I totally slept through everything. I wasn't even awake to talk to my doctor but luckily, my Mom was there to hear the good news.
