(WARNING: post includes very personal medical stuff)
Okay, remember that horrific scene in Half-Blood Prince, when Dumbledore had to keep drinking from the cup that had the locket in it? I've got the real-life version here.
You see, I'm having a colonoscopy tomorrow - something I've been postponing for years, mostly because of the prep. When my Marital Unit had this done, he had to drink a couple of little bottles of fruity flavored stuff, and do a couple of squirts up the hoo-hah with a Fleet. Me? No such luck.
I went to the pharmacy today and picked up my scrip for something called Colyte. What I got was a bunch of white granules at the bottom of a jug - a FOUR-LITER jug. That's about a gallon. So I added the water, and put it in the fridge. About an hour ago, I started drinking: 1 8-ounce glass every 8-10 minutes (no sipping). I have to do this till the 1st half is gone: the 2nd half I have to drink within an hour from 5:30-6:30 tomorrow morning. It's not horrible - just tastes like salty water. But the volume and frequency - OY!!
And even Dumbledore just had to drink the stuff; he didn't have to plan on spending the next several hours in the loo.
Horcruxes, cancer exams - they both suck!
