Capsule endoscopy
I'm undergoing a capsule endoscopy right now. I swallowed a tiny camera the size of a large vitamin this morning and have been wearing leads and a little backpack all day. It's a little uncomfortable but not as bad as not being able to eat for 24 hours. The camera has been sending pictures of my GI tract for the last 7 hours, I saw it in my stomach before leaving the hospital. It's a pretty interesting experience. I hope I get some of the photos. I'll have to update with the results in a few weeks.

With the sweatshirt over everything I look like I'm 7 months pregnant, but only on my left side.

The receiver is pretty heavy so I have to be careful not to move around too quickly or it'll pull the patches off.

They told me not to be alarmed if the camera comes out still flashing (I do not need to return it.) I have to avoid MRI machines, anyone else doing a capsule endoscopy and radio transmitters.

say when
The well is poisoned, the earth salted. Perceptions are made not broken. It's time for change if I can actually make it.
