Tomorrow is the big day! say a prayer for me that all will be normal! I am a nervous wreck! I just ate breakfast and that will be it until after my procedure tomorrow. My appointment is at 8 am. I start my first drink at 3pm today followed by another at 6. I will update you all tomorrow after the procedure! Danielle

    Remember my dad's (spongebob) advice....try, if its phosphosoda, mixing into margarita mix... hold your nose, use a straw, 'slam' it....and realize it MAY come back up....don't fight THAT feeling...(I have now thrown up so much that I have made it an art form, thinking about joining the olympic team...rofl).
    Sending strong, good vibes!

    Hugs, Kathi

    I recently told a dear friend of mine who was REALLY sick - vomiting for like a week due to gastroenteritis - "Look at the bright side, you'll probably have 6-pack abs when you get done with this!" She didn't see too much humor in that...!

    See you this weekend!!

    Oh, and Danielle - do NOT forget the marichi music and sombrero. It really completes the ambiance!

    'Really sick'? So, hurling for 3 straight days, every 3 weeks (adriamycyn for the breast cancer) is NOT real??? (hehehehehehe) I, too, am getting excited for this weekend!!!

    You are in my prayers. Keep in mind, if you don't lose that in the end (ha), that we shouldn't be too stressed about an unknown. It is like being afraid of going into a dark room. What is in there to be afraid of? "Don't know, but I'm afraid to go in there." OK, this is your "dark room". Probably nothing in there but the dark. Real clean in there though! My doc says it only has to look like very weak tea and then you can stop drinking. It took me about a 1/2 gallon. jams

    O jams all i have to drink is 1.5 oz of the fleets soda mixed with 4 oz gingerale at 2 different times. So im thankful for that. I think the worst part is gonna be not eating! Im starving! i have been drinking boullion. I am just so ready for this to be over. Only 1 hour before i take my first fleets! Man i need a laptop i can take to the toilet! Thanks for all the well wishes........kathi you make me laugh! o and sponge, you left out the Antonio Bandares(spelling?) part ;)

    Six pack abs? No, just a hefty hospital/pharmacy bill, a back ache and a serious case of bad breath. Kiss me SpongeBob Smarty Pants....

    Danielle, good luck with your photo session tomorrow - sending good vibes your way.

    From what everyone tells me the prep is the worst part of the procedure. Hang in there. I will be praying that all goes well.

    I have said it before - UNEQUIVOCALLY - the Antionio Borrachos part was ALL KATHI M! I had NOTHING to do with that...

    Remember something else, Miss Danielle - you ASKED for this! Complaining is NOT allowed! ;-)

    Jeez... I sure am doing a lot of emphatic YELLING today, aren't I? Maybe i should cut back on the COFFEE!!!

    Hmmm.. coffee... that sounds good... Off to have another cup now.. Woo-HOO!

    "Photo session"... I love it, Hanna Halotosis. Somehow, I don't think we'll see any of this sort of photo shoot on Project Runway... Not quite glam enough for Heidi Klum (which is the ONLY reason I watch that show... and I NEVER watch it if it conflicts with Monday Night FOOTBALL) OK, then, off to eat a MANLY dinner of raw meat now.

    Guess what? Hard candy counts as a clear liquid. Butterscotch, fruit lifesavers...when you're really hungry they are a real treat. My gastroenterologist put me on to this, I didn't make it up. Way more fun than bouillion and jello. Nancy
