The fiber I'm taking is cholestryramine, which is also a cholesterol medicine, but I don't have cholesterol problems, so that's strange. Anyway, that's what I surgeon prescribed. He did say at my appt. last week I could try something else. I may do that.
My little Julia is my only blood grandbaby, but my husband (we've been married 24 years) has 3 older boys who all have children. They live in VA, so we only see them a few times a year. My son lives in Florida about 45 minutes from us, so I get to see my "Florida grandbaby" every week...in fact, I usually keep her at least one day a week while they are at work. I haven't been able to for the last few weeks, but I think a couple more weeks and I'll start again. Tonight my son and his wife are going to a birthday party, so they'll drop the kids off (my son married a girl with a little boy) and I'll keep them. My son and his wife will come back later and spend the night and we'll have Easter together tomorrow. I love all the grandkids, they are older and come visit us in the summer, but it's so nice to have a baby close by!
My surgery was done in a hospital about an hour away, but my husband just stayed the entire 8 days with me. Our hospital has a hospitality house where family can stay for $40 a night, so he did that, but actually stayed with me most of the time. The room just gave him a chance to get out a little. My son lives nearby, so my hubby was able to get out and have lunch with him too. I didn't mind at all, and it kept him from going nuts!! I just really liked having him with me at night.
Off to hard boil some eggs so Felipe (step grandson) and I can color eggs tonight! I also got a couple movies, so we should have a good night. My little Julia is the best baby I've ever seen in my life; she's always happy, never cries, and goes to bed at 9:30 and sleeps til 8 am. I told my son not to expect that from the next one!!
