And they're talking about people without IBS issues!

Anyway, the video is tongue in cheek, but in all seriousness, when the election turned out the way it did (horray) I said then and there, it's just a good thing I'm unable to attend the inauguration!

Just thought I'd give you all something to smile about, from the comforts of your home and/or office and not having to deal with the shortage of port-a-lets!
Marsky/Mary's story.....
- Diagnosed with rectal cancer, April 1999 - Stage I, no treatment necessary
(5 hour colon resection: 90% sigmoid removed, 15 inches of colon removed, gall bladder removed, given temporary colostomy)
- Colostomy reversal, June 1999
- Left with IBS/D symptoms, multiple bm's every day
- On a low residue diet at least 75% of the time
- Takes Colace 50 mg each evening

All in all I do okay, I just use the bathroom A LOT! But I survived and beat cancer!

Oh my gosh! I hadn't even thought about all the people vs. toilets. "How can someone with IBS not even think of the toilet issue?" you may wonder. Well, I'm not a fan of crowds; I try to avoid big cities like the plague. I'm all for this historic event, but I don't feel like I need to be there... The thought never crossed my mind.
Thanks for sharing, Marsky! :-)

Lil - guess what. After watching the coverage I now wish I could have been there. Somehow, someway. Probably pre-cancer ways....LOL Not as I am now. They said people would be wearing so many layers and they have to tuck all that back inside their pants before stepping out into the cold again. So that would be another reason why lines at port-a-lets would be very long.

But I did hear the mood was very cordial, upbeat and positive. Still, if I had gone, used a port-a-let and needed it longer than the average person was taking, I'd feel bad! Maybe if they could have put a sign on some that said - for those with IBS issues! Hey, that probably would have cleared the lines for that particular port-a-let.

Anyway, it was nice to be home watching. But as it all turned out, we had a leaky outdoor faucet. So we had to turn our water off beginning Sunday. We could only turn it on for short periods, when everyone ran around using a bathroom or taking quick showers, etc. We finally had a plumber come yesterday. So in theory I might as well been in DC. LOL All in all, I drove to Target twice to use a bathroom and then visited the library on Monday, to use theirs for a while too and read magazines while I waited for my crazy colon to do its thing. We had our leak fixed by 2 pm yesterday. Oh to have water again!
