Hey Emma- Out of town sounds real good about now! Happy Birthday too! I'd say that your plate is full.
The salad didn't work for me, I don't think I'll do that very often. Hot dogs and beans didn't work either. French fries are bulk forming for me, but smell bad. I'm learning how different things work for me or not. Because I have to empty the ileostomy pouch, I have to see everything- yuk! It's been hard to get used to that! But most importantly, everything works inside. My transit time is very quick. No constipation here! No Imodium, Miralax, or fiber. Just my HTN/Tachy medicine, and the Lexapro for depression, and occasionally something to help me sleep. I was taking way more crap before surgery.
Today marks 2 months since the 1st surgery. 1 1/2 months since the 2nd. I'm half way to the 3 months recoop mark for reconnection. After the new year I should be ready physically. Really, I'm scared to death of another surgery, after so many problems last go round.
My hands are done peeling, but now my face, arms and the souls of my feet are peeling. What else?
I'm off to go buy some vitamins and get my blood drawn- eek!
Talk to you all later,
