I could have died and went to heaven yesterday and gone with a smile. I always said if I were offered a last meal it would be my mom's red cheese enchiladas with her beans and rice. Especially since i rarely get the courage to eat them anymore. So I had them for lunch and leftovers for dinner. I don't consider them junk food b/c it's all homemade but just very spicy and you all know about the beans.lol
But last night after dinner I was feeling horrible. I felt I had to go to the restroom like every 30 minutes but actually didn't and my lower back/colon was tender and in a lot of pain. :( Thank goodness my body did what it was supposed to do and eliminated as much as possible in the morning b/c i have felt very good all day. I have been feeling better and better lately so of course i had to try my mom's mexican food.
Well i just wanted to say how a combination of foods caused inflamation. I know this b/c of the urgency, tenderness/pain and the blood stain. So no Dr better not ever tell me again to eat whatever I like...Well it's after 5 so i'm going to the YMCA, told you i feel so much better today. Dueces. By the way i had fish and mostly vegetables, squash, carrots and brocolli for lunch today..
