New Hampsire discovers it accidently repealed law against evading tolls @ 08:37 pm

Went to the Gastroenterologist today to get some more definitive answers about why my stomach has been so weird for the last couple of weeks. After totally grilling the doctor about what/why/how things work he convinced me that it's probably a good idea to get a colonoscopy to figure out what (if anything) is wrong. So that pretty much really sucks. I'm not looking forward to that at all. I guess it's a pretty routine procedure, but that still means some doctor is going up where things aren't supposed to go up.

On top of all that I have to take some funky pills, drink some chalky substance, take laxatives, and not eat the day before. So that'll be a nice little Monday, maybe I'll go to Bed Bath and Beyond afterward. Hopefully they'll get the lab work back and they'll tell me I have some funky tapeworm and I can cancel my colonoscopy. I've never wished I had a tapeworm so bad :)

Whatever you do, complete every single step of the prep exactly as instructed. It is medieval, but it is absolutely essential. Also, don't count on going ANYWHERE the day of the procedure. They make you bring a DD and the DD has to sign a paper swearing that he/she won't let you drive anywhere after the procedure. You'll feel like you can, but DON'T. Larry and I have both had this procedure, so I speak from experience. After I got Larry home, he wanted me to drive him to the office and it took Claire (our daugher) and me to convince him he had to stay home and rest up. The worst part of this procedure is the prep--you'll never remember any of the other stuff that follows.

I had to have one once. It wasn't that bad.

I'm not sure what that guy at the truckstop did to you could technically be called a colonoscopy :)
