You'll be relieved to know... 

...that I have decided against live-blogging my colonoscopy tomorrow morning and the preparation therefore. Blogging the former would be a bit dull, since I expect to be under the influence of memory drugs, and blogging the latter would not be helpful from a public health perspective. Why? Because it would discourage readers who have not already done so from taking an essential exam that absolutely can save their life.

If you are a veteran, then you know that I have had nothing but clear fluids all day, and that I will devote the evening to drinking a gallon of TriLyte. I chose lemon-lime when I mixed it this morning.

Wish me luck.

Thank you for your decision. Besides, Katie Couric already did it.

If it's being done by Dr. Rho, he's a die-hard Mets fan who grew up in Queens. Complimenting the Mets might get him to go easy on you.

Smile! Good luck.

My heartfelt thanks for not liveblogging.

Good luck.

There are money to be made by selling the video to the proper fetish websites, I suppose...

I hope your procedure went well. I had one five years ago because of some symptoms. Fortunately, the test was negative (all clear).

I declined to watch the video monitor having already seen Katie Couric's.

A gallon? That seems like much more than I drank (and passed).

When the report came back from mine, it noted that I had a "superbly prepared colon." Nice to find something I'm good at.

Does scotch count as a clear fuluid, BTW?
