Rosemary.....Good luck with all this legal issues. I cannot imagine, your so strong and so good for this website.
I am doing better today Jen......still not eating much, but I at least have a slurpee or ice cream everyday to get in extra calories :) Still holding about 100-101. My mom hurt my feeling yesterday and said I looked emaciated in the face and neck, but i do not think i do. I think i look healthy and most other do to. The only thing that is bothering me is that I have had to increase my MOM to twice a day. My meds seem to be working....I feel ok. I do not feel perfect, but trying to be more positive and especially for all of you.
Jen, just go slow, it does take time.....some things make me go and some do nothing and I feel slightly bloated. Drinks lots and try some solids and chew really well. I had some pratial obstructions and they pass with fluid usually......hope your feeling better.
Jenise- Hope your doing well...time will fly by....its the recovery that seems like forever and you have the holidays in between. Thanks for your encouragement. I do sound better and feel better, but I still have my moments. I think something is still wrong with my rectum becuase when the stool comes out its very thin if its not liquid and I really have to strain. I start biofeedback next week so we will see what has happened to my tone. Say some prayers.
Thinking of everyone else......Love you my familia.
