Thank you all for your suggestions, I really appreciate it. I'm trying to more or less follow all of them, and I think I'm going to try and go to just clear foods starting tonight even though my test isn't until Friday. Maybe just a piece of boiled chicken or something so I'm not realy weakened by Friday. I have lots of Gatoraid, Poweraid and White Grape Juice (I hate apple juice and I can't drink pop so I wasn't sure what else to get). I also have some herbal teas including ginger as I've heard that can really help to settle the stomach. I'm hoping that since I don't eat very much (I'm still technically recovering from an eating disorder because I think *they* say you never really recover) I'll only need the one bottle of Fleet...I can't imagine there would be enough in me to need two doses.

I am really scared though...I'm not sure if I should be alone for the prep. I want to be because I find the whole "stuck in the bathroom all night" thing to be very personal and embarassing, but with the anemia still being so bad and me being so weak, I'm not sure if that's a good idea.

Any suggestions? I just need to calm my nerves or I'm going to chicken out! Also...does anyone remember from when they did it approximately when they were able to stop going or when the severe urgency stopped? I only have one bathroom so if I decide to have someone here with me I want to make sure they can use the bathroom if they have to! They want me to start the prep at 6:00PM but the last time I did that and had an early procedure (I have to be at the hospital at 8:15AM) I wasn't quite finished...and that makes me nervous as the hospital is a long drive. Does anyone know if it would be harmful to start a little earlier? I can't get ahold of the doc :(
