The prep is worse than the test
I have heard this before. Today is colonoscopy prep day. Liquids only, bowel cleansing after lunch, test tomorrow morning. I will add my own reflections after this is over. Laura can no longer stomach lemon lime flavorings since having two of these tests.
I was urged to take the test by Ben, who sadly reached the stage where he was beyond medical help last evening. I await word from the family today.
One reason people procrastinate about tests like these is that we would rather not know about the possibility of bad news. A very human thing.
