Vegetable Lust

I tried the Miralax this week.  While it made things move, it caused horrendous pain. The pain when "not going" is also getting more intense.   I have been seeing more blood in the bowl.  Now that can't be good.  When I talked to my surgeon's nurse this morning she agreed that something is wrong somewhere and is squeezing me in next Friday to see him.  I still think the "narrowing at the connection site" is causing my misery.  But I'm not a doctor, so what the hell do I know?  Just know that if I turn out to be right there is going to be a huge "in your face"  celebration dance  at the doctors office.  To help prevent a major obstruction from happening in the mean time I am back on a soft food diet.  Fun.  I never knew I would one day crave a salad so much.  Hm. . . spinach, carrots, asparagus, broccoli. . .   Oh apples. . .
I just want to be done with this.  I'm tired of only posting about my problems, but they are what are occupying my mind right now.   So fricking annoying.

Oh my gosh!! Look at all that cuteness!! Thank goodness you have Gracie! While things seem bleak now Gracie is a ray of sunshine. I hope you get these issues taken care of soon. I can only imagine how badly you want some veggies!

I'm so glad they're getting you in to see the surgeon. Hopefully he'll be able to "fix" whatever is wrong and you can start to enjoy a more normal diet and life.

Oh, the kids LOVE seeing pictures of Gracie, although every time I have to say, "no, it's not Jonesy, it's Miss Stephanies puppy Gracie" Too funny!

Hi Steph, I can't believe your surgeon is making you wait so long! Tell him EVERYTHING when you get there. Hopefully things will be more manageable soon---you'll probably be so happy when you can just go!...without svere pain! Hang in there and hug that puppy....Scott too. Love ya, Aunt Teri
