After having some kidney stones blasted it was requested that I needed a follow-up done which consisted of an Ultra Sound and an Xray.  Didn’t seem like much of a task to me.  I’ve had Xrays before and they were a cinch – no big deal.

I got the call to set up the date for both to be done and the gal told me that I had to have nothing solid to eat after twelve midnight the night before and that I had to have five-eight ounce glasses of clear liquid and be finished two hours before my appointment which was slated for 11am.

I gave that clear liquid thing a little thought.  I wondered if coffee or tea was included in that.  I could easily down five cups of coffee before that.  I called to check to make sure and the nurse said no it must be water.
