After following instructions of prep starting yesterday at 2 p.m. and able to drink about 6 or 8 glass of powerade and Miralax I am still not clean.  I certainly should be!  AND - now don't laugh - they said no RED powerade so I used blue and (you guessed it) everything come out blue.  I starting throwing it up so quit before done.  I snicker when I think of the inside of my colon being blue (sure beats red) or maybe purple if mixed with blood.  Actually, happy to report I did not see any blood!
YIKES!  Well, I have to be there at noon - better get cleaned up, etc.
Wish me luck!  I may need it when I tell the doctor!

Elaine, you don't have to be running completely clear. If you have small pieces of stool in the liquid, that's okay. Good luck with the scope.
