Just So You Know - I Survived!

Thank you to all of you who sent hugs, good wishes, and a lovely virtal gift, you really helped me get through today *hugs*

Well, as I already told most of you, the prep didn't go too well, I managed most of the first litre, barely slept last night, and I still felt full this morning so I only got through half a litre of the second lot. I called the hospital to discuss matters and they suggested I go in anyway and they'd see if the test could still be done.

Battled my way there (by taxi) through pouring rain and traffic jams, then found all the doctors were running late, so I was sitting around in a hospital gown and thin hospital dressing gown, in a chilly room and had to dig out my cardigan again to stay warm for an hour and a half. Oh joy. I didn't want to be there and then I had to wait. Good thing I took a book with me.

I was not knocked out for the test as I'd expected, just sedated enough to relax me, but everyone was very nice and they let me keep my crystals with me, and... honestly, it wasn't terrible. What surprised me though was being told I'd done an excellent job with the prep, so I'm really glad I didn't chicken out and cancel. I will say it's odd being able to see your own insides on the monitor the doctor uses though...

Apparently, everything was perfectly fine, which is good news I guess, something else ruled out. Spent an hour in recovery, with water and biscuits, then had to wait half an hour for a taxi and got stuck in traffic all the way home. But then my friend, who's staying tonight, popped out and got chips, so that was a nice treat. I rarely have them =)

Not quite caught up online yet, but I got my writing done - three drabbles this morning, two more this evening - and posting is done. My streak is still unbroken!

Still things I want to get done before bed, so I'd best get on with it.
