Yesterday I had the joy of having a colonoscopy. The procedure itself isn't bad, although I now have a very sore throat and cough (probably from the oxygen), it's the prep. Having had one in the past I thought I was prepared for spending a number of hours on the throne the day before and the morning of. I had my phone, my iPad and a book. Oh, and Depends for when I just had to get up and walk around before my legs went numb. I'm sure that's more than you ever wanted to know but I had to share. I actually got about 2 hours sleep. My daughter was kind enough to go with me as she had to drive me home. The anesthesia really hit me hard. When I got home all I wanted to do was sleep. She stayed with me for a while just to make sure I would be okay. I dozed some with my kitty snuggled up with me. Later friend A came by after work to check on me. Not long after she left I went to bed. It wasn't even dark. I slept for about 13 hours and believe I could sleep for a few more. I still have a sore throat though not as bad and I'm still tired. Don't think I'll be going anywhere today. Would like to know where the cough came from. I was told that I even coughed while under the anesthesia, which surprised the heck out me and them. Because of my age I was advised that I would need to have one in 5 years (just a suggestion). Yeah, right. Hopefully by then they will have come up with a better way. If I make it another 5 years I'll consider it.
For those of you of a certain age I'm sure you understand.
Y'all have a loverly day.
