Day        98°     Partly cloudy this morning then becoming sunny. Hot with highs around 100. South winds 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph.
Night    74°     Clear in the evening then becoming mostly cloudy. Lows in the mid 70s. South winds 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph.

Very hot high temperatures between 98 and 103 degrees are expected across portions of South Central Texas this afternoon.
Combined with humidity, this could result in peak heat index values in the 102 to 107 degree range.

I was up at 5:15 this morning to begin taking the last of the laxative. Though this process is unpleasant, it is less unpleasant that my previous experiences with preparing for a colonoscopy. Mostly this is do to the change in the medication and dosage. Five years ago I was required to mix and drink a full gallon of purgative. The newer system required drinking a ten ounce bottle of medicine last night followed by thirty two ounces of water. That was repeated again this morning. By splitting the amount and timing of the dosage it made it less onerous.

I arrived at 10 a.m. and went in at ?, Our of surgery at 1:15 p.m. the doctor came out at 2:45 p.m. By then, I’d read all the reports and seen all the photos. So it was a handshake and a goodbye.

We had just a few minutes with the coffee crew this morning before we headed to the doctor.

I was really ready for IHOP. The bowl of cereal that I’d eaten Sunday night just didn’t last through ’til late Tuesday afternoon.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer said it this way: “We have learned to see for once the great events of world history from below— through the perspective of the barred, the suspects, the badly treated, the powerless, the oppressed, the scoffed—in short the perspective of those who suffer.”
