I gather every country has its "favorite prep" 😁

 

For me, the worst part is the hunger.... My gastro friend advised, after I complained, to schedule it early in the morning, saying that sleeping make it easier on the hunger.

 

DH had it at 4.30 PM, and was OK.

 

Dani, I always schedule mornings;  no way I could wait until afternoon.  At least we can have jello, broth, italian ice, etc. the day before the procedure.  I'm glad to hear all went well with your DH😊

Question:  How do you find out the time that the ships have their Sail Away?  The Equinox, and I believe the Connie, are sailing out of Fort Lauderdale today.  Does anyone know the timetable?

Per PEV schedule, Connie is tomorrow at 5pm

Happy to hear his procedure went well.   The guy Eric goes will only schedule colonoscopies for mornings as he does his office visits in the afternoon.  I couldn't imagine waiting until 430 in the afternoon to get done - that would drive me bonkers.     

 

The 1st time, my friend was still working as the Head of the Gastro Dept. at a hospital, so only afternoons for me... Lesson learned, though.

The 2nd time, he was "retired", but continued working at a private hospital, so he could schedule me first one in the morning. It was bothersome traveling to another city with a huge parking problem, but, after hearing horror stories about perforated intestines, I preferred to go with someone very experienced.

 

I tried to convince DH to go there too, but he was ashamed... 

 

It really surprised me that he didn't constantly complain about being hungry all morning before the colono... Regular days -- he's non-stop hovering around the fridge, proclaiming "I'm hungry 😢"

We were tempted to do Anthem before she goes back across the pond, but don't want to leave our dog again after our cruise two weeks ago on Silhouette.   She's getting so clingy since we both retired.

You need to scan the QR code on the front of the test card.  We never used the QR code on the box itself.  

 

Thanks Bob that's what I thought but wanted to make sure.

Agree. High time for a "friendlier" prep 😉

You figure someone could invent one that tastes good. Glad everything went fine.

I would die of hunger.

We both just successfully completed our Covid tests for our Allure cruise on Sunday.  Both negative!  Time to start packing.  If only we were allowed to take a wine filled broom closet with us.

Hope you have a great cruise!

I can't remember who suggested it, but "Episodes" on Netflix with Matt LeBlanc is hilarious. Great TV. Thank you to whoever posted it.

I know I mentioned it b/c it was one of our favorites. We rewatched it during “lockdown” and it was just as funny.  But I know others on here mentioned it too.  Glad you like it.

DH has had his 1st this Sunday. As a "veteran",  I kept an eye on him. He had to drink a "lousy" mixture, but before drinking, he was prescribed "Pramin"....

I have found that there’s not much sleeping after that prep!

Give my favorite puppy Belle🥰 a hug and hope she is doing better. I haven't forgotten her,  I was just taking a break from a couple of resident drama queens there.😁😉

Thank you for that. I am surprised I never really heard about it before. Probably because we don't have Showtime. The producer and writer David Crane is brilliant as always since his "Friends" days. The casting is great and I always love Matt LeBlanc. We are almost done with Season 1. We will do some more binge watching this weekend.

Hoping to finish season 1 of Yellowstone tonight. But First, Big Brother.

Yes, The big Buck like's the Apple flavored corn I pick up at Royal King. He better not get used to the patio, there is going to be a hot tub sitting on there in a few days 😉  

apple flavored corn sounds yummy.      

That's great your hot tub will be installed soon to enjoy on nice cool fall evenings.

(although I am not wishing for summer to be over anytime soon).    

Maybe you can sit in the hot tub and hand feed the deer the apple corn.    that would be neat to see

Sign on my local Kroger's entrance door.  "Masks Required".  Store clerk was standing at the inside door I assumed to be sure it was enforced.  However, his mask was only covering his mouth, his nose exposed.  

 

Stopped into Sprouts and didn't notice a sign but everyone had on a mask.  I feel like we're taking one step ahead and two behind. 🙁

We do not have mask enforcement in my area but definitely have seen a big increase in mask usage in the last month.   

My local news seems to be asking whether or not outdoor sporting events are safe with no masks on, packed stadiums and lots of cheering or yelling.

Yellowstone is on my list. I really want to see it. I have to pay to watch it on Amazon Prime since I don't have Peacock. Is that where you are watching from?

More and more people are wearing masks in the stores here, also, Bonnie😔
