Butt seriously . . .

Here's what my diet will consist of for the next 24 hours:

Clear liquids: sparkling water, iced tea, hot teas, chicken bouillon, and Ellen's "Colonoscopy Jell-O Dee-Lite."

Because that's what you have to eat in preparation for a colonoscopy; or "buttoscope" as Ellen so eloquently called it.

Today, I'll be finishing the bamboo sweater from hell. Then at 6:00 p.m., I'll retreat upstairs to pick out yarn and a pattern for the next project and start taking the prescription meds. Tomorrow morning, I check in at 6:30 a.m. for the procedures; both and endoscope of my esophagus and then a colonoscopy.

If you're 50 or over and haven't had this done, please call your doctor and schedule it soon. Especially if you have a family history of colon or stomach cancer. It really IS that important.


  1. Sounds like fun....wait, no, it doesn't. Wishing you a speedy procedure with no news other than "everything looks great!"

  2. Your Jell-O Dee-Lite looks divine.

    Enjoy! Or, er, I mean, enjoy it as much as possible under the circumstances...

    Good luck!

  3. Good luck, and enjoy the Jell-O, at least! And the knitting. Good vibes heading your way!

  4. Been there, done that, good luck.

  5. Okay--well that doesn't sound like fun! Thanks for stopping by my blog! And for telling me about the PDX Knit-Bloggers--I'm so envious of the group you've got going on! I don't get to your side of the state that much anymore (used to be there a lot for field work) but next time I head to Portland, I'll see if I could plan it to coincide with a meeting of great knitters! I like your blog--I've added it to my 'read' list so you should hear from me again!
