Today was a very good day! Nose hose out! A little food in! 30 laps around the wing.
But disaster almost struck. Note: I have not had any food for a week. Today the doctor said I could have cream soup for dinner, easing me back to eating solid food. Let me tell you, YUMMY, the thought of tomato soup was a sweet thought all day long. So about 6PM I call in my food order. It took about 4 phone calls for them to accept that I could have soup added to my clear liquids restrictions, but that glitch was finally settled…so I thought. I’m waiting, anticipating…my tray arrives, and there is my bowl, I open it and its BEEF BROTH. Knowing that the kitchen closes at 7, and its now 6:58, I quickly call. I am put on the automatic recording saying I will be the next in line. Promptly at 7, I get another recording saying the kitchen has closed. Click. I don’t cry easily about food, but the tears welled up. I called the nurse….and thankfully, I was able to enjoy my soup a short while later. Thank you nurse Amber! After eating that most delicious cup of soup and an italian ice, I felt as full as after Thanksgiving dinner. But it digested just fine, and hopefully tomorrow I will get more solids added to my menu.
