Anxious and apprehensive...asking for prayers please.

I've been up most of the night due to a prep for a colonoscopy and endoscopy that I'm going to be having this morning. They are both five year routine. While I've had them both before, I've never had them together. It sounded good at the time the doctor suggested it but now I'm feeling very anxious about being sedated for so long. She said it would be about forty five minutes. I'm going to be 70 next month. Now, that I'm older being sedated always worries me. I'm afraid I won't wake up. I believe in the power of prayer, 🙏🏼so I'm asking that everyone who reads this will please send a short prayer and positive thoughts my way. Thank you in advance for listening and for your prayers!🙏🏼🤗

Will keep a thought for you today.  So, What have you got scheduled for this afternoon that you don't want to miss?

I am awake much earlier than usual with some anxiety also. I'm sure your doctor knows it's safe for you to be sedated for that long or he would do each procedure separately. You will be so happy and relieved this afternoon when both have been completed. Prayers for a good outcome for both tests!

I understand your anxiety.  I am like this about most things.  When I get a colonoscopy, they always do an endoscopy at the same time because I had digestive issues.  You will not even notice that you had both at the same time!  And this way, you don't have to go two separate days - you will have it all done at one time and be done with it! It will go smoothly and you will be just fine!  I am 71 and I have had this done many times!  Best wishes and try your hardest to think good thoughts!
