So, you'd think after all the years that I have had my ileo, that I'd learn how to count and change it when I should, right?! Welllll, NOOOOO! I decided that I was in too big of a hurry yesterday morning to get to work. (Been working a lot of hours at the university since the beginning of the semester last week. And leaving my house at 7:00 am -- just too early to do anything but try to get showered and dressed.) Anyway, I decided to star marking my calendar beginning in January of this year so that there is never that guessing game for me. I just can't remember.... wait for the itchies and then change it. Anyway, I am up in the middle of the night cuz I ended up with a leak because I IGNORED my calendar yesterday. A minor one but I hate being woke up that way!!! I do sympathize with ya all. It's just been a long time for me since I have had a "surprise"!!! Serves me right!
