Ok, so I was due for a physical at 9am this morning - traffic was a nightmare, and I didn't even get close to the office before I had to pull off, double back and go to work instead at about 9:30 - they rescheduled me for 1pm, but I haven't eaten anything since 9pm last night and now I have to wait 4 additional hours.<br><br>Water ain't cutting it anymore, and I feel like I'm going to pass out any minute. If you see some wacky posts in the next few hours out of me, you now know why. <br><br>
I feel your pain! Been there, done that except I had to go a whole day of no food except for clear liquids until the next day at around 1130am.<br><br>Oh..and I had to swallow 32 GIGANTIC pills (20 in one hour and 12 more 4 hours later) during the fasting day. (Some here may know exactly why I had to do that). I won't go into details but let's just say that I was thoroughly cleaned out that evening! <br><br>
Can you eat Jell-O?<br><br>It's still kinda' clear, and kinda' liquid<br>but you can kinda' chew it, & the sugar<br>will kinda' keep you from passing out.<br><br>JELL-O SHOTS! <br><br>[color:white].</font color=white><br>

I like to joke that I can inhale and fart the same breath after all that cleansing.<br><br>
Don't you just ADORE Medical Horror stories?<br><br>I had to go for an ultra sound<br>but they forgot the bit about telling me to drink<br>8 cups of water PRIOR to coming for the test...<br><br>...so I get to the desk with time to spare, and the<br>nurse asks if I'd prepared, I said, "huh?" ("NO")<br>so she hands me a pint plastic cup and tells me to<br>sit in the waiting room until I've drunk 8 cups.<br><br>16 (8 oz.) cups later... <br>(you do the math)<br><br>Geezis! I thought the dam would burst for SURE! <br><br><br>[color:white].</font color=white><br>

About an hour to go, and it's sort of like being drunk - with the extra added benefit of trying to do my job at the same time. No one suspects anything - yet.<br><br>If I had someone to drive me home, I might experiment and go the whole day like this... laugh]<br><br>
