 Do not post copyrighted material. Not only does it violate Healing Well rules but clearly breaks the terms of usage posted on the Miami Herald website where this was copied from. Thank you.

Sooooo funny, but if he had crohns he would get to do it over and over and over.........
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Sniper! :-)

Thank you soooooooooooo much for that. I laughed so hard I almost pooped myself! hehe

I have had only one of these in the hospital. I remember sitting up shop, complete with table, prep jug and IV stand in the bathroom yelling at my nurse telling her she was the anti-christ for a few hours (had already been three days in with nothing but liquid and pleeeeeenty of prep and nothing left to clear). I also remember being rolled into the "torture room". When I saw nothing but a wall of those tubes, I FREAKED, telling my doctor "Please drive slowly and get me home safe!"

When new GI doc asked last week to do another one, I said "Not no, but Hell No! It's in the ileum and my ileum is so twisted you WON'T reach it - still having full visual of prep and the "torture room" wall.

Good to laugh. As always you ROCK, Snips!

Thanks! That was a good laugh - and oh so true (although the prep always makes me feel like I drank 2 bottles of vodka the night before! (Pounding headache and vomiting while going at the other end). Dave Barry had it easy!!! I've never slept through my tests either (wish I could).

That was fun to read though!
