If you are sensitive about basic bodily functions, consider yourself warned…..

I am home, thank God!   And feeling better. …the secret is very small portions.  1/4 cup of mashed potatoes goes down real well.  And Ensure tastes like a delicious milkshake after weeks of ice chips and popsicles.   Now, all that’s needed, for an added measure of confidence,  is for these ingested foods to move on and out!    All would probably be much better if I could just forget about this little detail and let nature take its course.   But that is a little hard when a nurse comes in every hour and asks you if you have passed gas, and checks her little box with a big smile when you say yes.  I hated to disappoint them and my awareness of this bodily function has been super sensitized.   I will be one happy, uncrampy, camper very soon.    Fingers crossed, saying a prayer, and following doctors orders.

  1. I will take your advice 1/4 of a cup of mashed potatoes. I refused to go back to the hospital on Saturday. I see the doc on Friday and start Chemo on the 21st. I have been thinking of you so much. I start the day giving thanks to everything beautiful in my day and you are always part of my thanks. Stay well and soon all this crazy body stuff will stop and we will have normal functions. All my love

  2. Look at it from the bright side, life is pretty simple when you can make someone happy by passing gas!
    Take her easy, sweetie! We’re thinking about you.
