If that title sounds giddy, it is. I'm on my 2nd day of my 48 hour liquid diet before my barium enema tomorrow. For some reason I feel very giddy, happy and lightheaded. It must be all the sugar in the cranberry juice I'm drinking. Yesterday I drank it all day before looking at the label. Today I'm alternating it with water so I don't get as much sugar.I start the laxatives in 2 1/2 hours. I probably won't be so happy then!

Keep up that positive attitude Jean!!! You go girl! And, I would gather an assortment of reading material and other things to do while on the throne. Like the boy scout motto says...be prepared! Hang in there!------------------Happiness is a warm puppy. -Charles Schultz

Hahahah:Thanks for reminding me, K9. I took the first laxative 15 minutes ago and can feel things rumbling. I just ran and put a book in the bathroom.My cat is hiding! I wonder if this is an omen of things to come! Jean------------------"Never let the fear of striking out get in your way." Babe Ruth. And I'm also Praying with Bettie for a cure for this NASTY IBS!

Thanks, luckylou. So far so good. But I am starting to think of potato chips, and I don't even eat potato chips! Jean------------------"Never let the fear of striking out get in your way." Babe Ruth. And I'm also Praying with Bettie for a cure for this NASTY IBS! Jean

I'll be sure to let everyone know, Bettie. Doesn't it take a few days to get the results back? I forgot to ask. I guess I'll find out tomorrow.Thanks for you kind thoughts.

Thanks, Eric. I probably won't gorge myself right away anyway. I plan to eat at the hospital, and then it will take me 1 1/2 hours to get home by bus and subway. So I'm not going to take any chances on getting sick!It's been nice not having any cramps for 2 days. Maybe I should eat jello more often! Hey, maybe that's the new miracle cure for IBS - jello!

Ha! I would be the first in line for that bionic digestive track. Hmmm. Maybe I should let Bettie go first! Jean------------------"Never let the fear of striking out get in your way." Babe Ruth. And I'm also Praying with Bettie for a cure for this NASTY IBS! Jean
