Hi, I got the food thing figured out. My mom works at a different hospital and she had her friend bake me some plain chicken breasts and im gonna make another tonight at home. Shes gonna just pack a cooler,also im gonna bring a couple of potatos:)
I'll type out the 3 day prep. as it says on the sheet....
Three days before- Take one scoop of Miralax(17grams) mixed in with 8 ounces water after breakfast,lunch and dinner. Continue a usual diet.
Two days before- Take two scoops (34 grams)Miralax mixed with 16 ounces water after breakfast, lunch and dinner. Continue a usual diet.
One day before- Only clear liquids. Take two scoops(34 grams) of Miralax wit 16ounces of water after breakfast,lunch and dinner.
In the early evening (Between 5 & 7 pm) take one entire bottle of Magnesium Citrate (over ice &cold) Drink 1-2 glasses of water withen the next hour.
My scope is at 11 am, so I drink the stuff the night before.
Oh and by the way im eating a piece of chicken just sprikled with some salt and its not so bad, I prefer this diet over the liquid diet. Atleast I get chicken & tatos:0) I want butter but i'll survive. Im already planning my first regular meal for after the 2nd test Wed. LOL!!!
