Closing in on sixty-one years. Next week, is my "procedure". A procedure that is recommended for those over fifty. You might remember the one my doctor was so enthusiastic about me getting.
I get my information packet in the mail a couple of weeks ago, I skim through it. The operational word being "skim".
I've been obsessing over not being able to have decent food for a week before the "procedure". I re-read the paperwork this morning. Whew. I can only eat white stuff two days before (no fiber rich products) and clear stuff the day before. Well, clear stuff that isn't red. Like strawberry jello.
The only seven day warnings, things that are off-limits are certain medications. Like Aleve, Motrin, Excedrin, aspirin. No anti-inflammatories for one thing. But Tylenol is okay.
Yanno, I've taken Tylenol before and I think if I have a headache or a backache, I'll try a Tic-Tac. I'd still be in pain either way, but with the Tic-Tac, at least my breath would be fresh.
