Prepping for tomorrow.

Dr said he never heard of Prepopik and doing the Miralax instead... I hate it because you have to drink so much and it bloats me right up.

With the Prepopik it is so simple and 20oz of water and no cramps.

Can't to get this shit over with.

I have to get up at 3:30 am to shower and get down to Emory by 5:30 am. Sucks. :roll:

God, please don't let me puk or get the tube again!!

That is when I will bring out the shotgun! :evil: :evil:
