8 Things Thursday

And now, back to our regularly scheduled blogging... (Betcha can't guess what I've been up to the last few days...)

8 Tips for a Great Colonoscopy

1 Find a clear fluid (can be apple juice, white grape juice, anything not red or purple) that you hate. By the end of the day, you'll never want to drink it again

2 If you want to get in some exercise, do it in the morning because by afternoon, the only exercise you'll be getting is running to the bathroom

3 Record anything you're watching on tv because chances are, you won't be able to sit through an entire show

4 Treat Jello and broth like they're haute cuisine

5 Avert your eyes during trips to the kitchen for more fluids and during food commercials

6 Don't worry about making a good impression-wear the easiest clothes to get in and out of, even if it means those old, elastic waist pants you usually reserve for lazing around the house and forget about a bra--way too tricky to manipulate when you're groggy

7 Plan an outing to a favorite restaurant for the day of the procedure. It'll give you something to look forward to.

8 Most people go to breakfast right from the test: my advice, go home and sleep. Once you're truly awake, you can actually enjoy (and remember) a good lunch.
