Last post I promised to tell you more about my medical saga over the last couple of weeks. Here is the bit about Colo-Prep the laxative from you know where.
First though I must tell you we had our first spring rains last night after a long and very dry winter.

Well, last Sunday at 2pm I took the first of two sachets of Colo-Prep. After breakfast I was not allowed to eat any solid food and no milk products, only clear liquids and jelly. By 2pm I was rather hungry. Forty minutes later nothing had happened and I was just starting to think that this stuff is not all it's cracked up to be when I felt a slight twinge and decided I better make my way to the throne room.
Got there just in time, to say it works is an understatement, the bottom literally falls out of your world. On the sachet it say's that your stool will be watery, truth be told Noah could have floated his ark. After about 10 minutes I thought," well I survived that", did the necessary paper work, buttoned- up, zipped-up, and belted-up, and made my way back to my favourite chair and the book I was reading.
I didn't sit long when the warnings started, well now I had to head for the throne room at a gallop and only just made it in time. So it went all afternoon, at 4pm just as things were starting to calm down I had to take the second sachet, and it started all over again till after 10pm.
I was told to drink lots of water while all this was going on, which I did, glass after glass, but next morning when I signed in at the hospital I had lost 4kg, that's about 9lbs!
More tomorrow on this exciting saga.
