    I thought you start that prep early morning? What are you doing running errands for when you should be running into Sir John?

Good lazy day

Our priest prayed an extra sermon for the slaughter victims in Newtown, Mas was very poignant. I am still praying they find a solution to the gun availability...

Tomorrow is prep day so DD made some jello for me, I am "proteining up" since clear liquids have none..
I am praying that things go will early in the morning with mom's dental appointment,, regardless, I have to be home buy noon to start my prep...
I hope everyone has a nice week, settles down and prepares for he real reason for this HOLIDAY upcoming...

    I think addressing the guns issue will not even approach the real issue. Mental illness. The shooter who did the killing was mentally ill and his momma seems to have been pretty much around the bend too.

    Hope things go well for your Mom's dental appointment. I have a couple of appointments scheduled soon also.
The Mom appears to be a collector. Kind of opposite to form, if there is a such a thing. Not the first time a son attacks there parents. Very hard job to have for the rest of your life, being a parent. A parent for life.

I just returned from my lab work.. The new thing the last time I went there last spring, was use the urine specimen cup in the usual, but then you have to POUR IT INTO THE TEST TUBE FOR THE LAB!!
I am always the first one in line, bringing my book to read,waiting.. Doc ordered a whole list of tests,, four tubes of blood and the urine spec,, hope I pass all the tests,, I studied all night!! My last A1C was 6.1,, hoping it goes down a little..

I did read the instructions again for my punchbowl party Monday: the flavor packets are all clear..
I think a nap is in order today,, I tossed and turned all night..

    I'm guessing you were saying your last A1c was 6.8 you said 6.i. Luckily I've been able to go off 1 glyburide tablet. Mine was 5.8. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed for you and praying it's all good.

Okay, I worked extra hours today, so changed a lot of my plans for this evening. DD and I went to dad's house to check out non-working phone, planning on getting new battery and letting it charge overnight and going there tomorrow night. We caught two more mice, re-baited the traps, noticed some more d-con is gone,,
Turns out we checked the phone out and now it is working just fine, since I plugged it in and it must have charged.. so we did not have to buy a battery,, what we DID have to buy was my prep for my scope Tuesday..

Whoa!! That huge jug was somewhat intimidating, but I have faced-off with worse things,, a lot less than my last scope in 1974. Mammograms, tooth drilling, and weighing-in at doc's office were pretty darned scary to me.. we will see.. The pharmacist was all cheery and when I asked if I had a flavor choice, she showed me my three choice of flavor packets:cherry, lemon, orange.. Hmm, I am sure that cherry will be absolutely dee-LISH compared to lemon.. Lemon is for fish and lemonade and whitening your fingernails, not for power washing your colon!! What were those people thinking even OFFERINg that flavor???

So now, I have two days to decide if I want to glare at an orange, or cherry flavored gallon drum of hydraulic acid that will flush me out like a fox to hounds!!!!!!!!!!!
I also bought some peach, orange, mango and lime flavored gelatin. Toss in a box of Italian ice, herbal tea and sierra mist, and I am salivating at the thought of gnoshing down on this feast all day Monday!!
Besides, when I went to school, I am pretty sure that the Smirnoff brothers, Jack Daniels and Annie Greensprings were all clear liquids,(I could see through the bottles!)

I will be glad to get this thing over with,, tomorrow is a whole order sheet of lab blood draws.. so I will be NPO at 7 tonight,..

Never been one of those high colonic gals or bulimics, BUT my dream for eh outcome of this surgery, is negative biopsies and maybe three pounds weight loss.. a girl can dream....

    I''m surprised they offer cherry. Usually anything red is forbidden...or is it just clear but cherry flavoring?

Hoping all goes well for you. And that the end results are perfect....

    Yay!!! @ capturing 2 more meeses!

I ahd the lemon flavor packet in my galon jug. uck, yuck, yuck! Can the cherry really be that convincing? You tell me how you like it. I hd to only drink half of the jug and we fed the thirsty garbage disposal the other half.
If you are not problematic in the pipes it should go smoothly.
