I am going to have to prepare my husband for his first colonoscopy.  He will be 60 in Jan and  has never had one.  He's a trooper, but I know Sunday will be interesting in getting him thru his cleanse and not being able to eat.  I have spoiled him as usual - favorite dinners tonight and tomorrow night, bought him a bag of chips for today and tomorrow.  Chips are a luxury in that he has high blood pressure and cholestrol so this is off limits for him most of the time.  But we do have to break rules occasionally!  For Sundays cuisine?  2 bottles of gatoraide, dolculax and miralax, some jello and popsicles.  No worries that he has uc, but as we all know this test is so important.  Now he'll know a little more of what we go thru!  Oh yeah, baby! yeah
 
 
Everyone have a wonderful weekend!

Great idea! But since my husband doesn't care for sports I'll turn up HGTV or Nature or Discovery - my hubby has masters in biology!

Gigi!  Poor guy!  Men are such babies (at least most) who don't want to admit it!  I am caregiver to my husband of 47 years who has COPD and now lung cancer.  I help him when he wants and when he NEEDS - otherwise, he takes care of himself very well. (and he takes care of me when I need it)

I hope the results are good - that is what is important.

Yes, Elaine, you are so right and I salute you w/ being the caregiver to your husband. Of course, even when they are healthy we are caregivers to them. And of course, they to us! I quit smoking and that is what caused my uc. Last night I was ready for a cig as I have learned the nicotine helps w/ uc. However, I rested and woke up knowing that keeping my quit is the best choice to make. Let your husband know that he is in my prayers and also quitnet.com may be of help to him. It certainly was to me w/ my quit. Chances are my dh has no probs, but it's crucial that it is checked out.

Planning a weekend of TLC for him!

YES - you STAY QUIT!  My husband quit smoking about 7 years ago now when he had to have a triple by-pass surgery.  He often craved them but never gave in after that.  Then he was diagnosed with COPD and cancer later - he has fought the cancer for 18 months and is in remission.  He looks and feels pretty good.  Fighting UC is MUCH better (for most anyway) than fighting lung cancer!!
