Dinner and a Musical

My DH was recently diagnosed with diverticulitus. The past three days he was on a strict liquid diet for his colonoscopy (spelling?) today. As a matter of fact when I purchased the 20 boxes of jello (he's a big guy and that's all he ate for 3 days) the woman behind me said "Boy, you must really love jello." I thought it was funny and wanted to say something clever back...of course, nothing came to mind.
Well, today was the procedure and I had to get up at 3:30am to get cleaned up and take him to the hospital where he works which is an hour away. He did well with the test. They did remove one pollup, which we will have to wait for the results.
Anyways, they didn't warn me in advance of the musical I would endure for the hour ride home and of course all throughout dinner. It seems that during this test air gets trapped and creates a no-orderous gas...lots of gas. Well, just in case any of you get the joy of doing this wonderful procedure...don't invite dinner guests!
Needless to say today was an interesting day. I learned more about the human colon then I care to and I had a wonderful dinner...with of course music
