Over the past half day or so I have managed nine and half hours of sleep, including waking twice on my wound side. (Ouch.) Also, finally the gates of my lower GI have properly opened, which is a relief so profound it cannot be described, and a cliché so worn that someone who's never been in the position of needing that relief tends to find it laughable. (I was similarly blissfully uninformed and tactless in my youth).

Another day of laying low. Things do hurt a bit less.

Tomorrow my surgical oncology followup.

Glad you had a successful trip home and are feeling better, and that no disastrous return trip was necessary this time. All in all, this went as well as such things could possibly go. Best wishes for tomorrow.

SO glad to hear things're moving again and hurting a bit less, too. And that you're sleeping lots, as that's healing 'n' necessary.

*gentle hugs* See ya' on the flip-side (back home again in approx a week)!

Oh oh oh - I LURV yr train pic idea. There're stray trees 'n' mossy bits downstairs - DO make it so before the "tracks" go away, if you possibly can, as it'd be awesome beyond belief, TMM.

Yay you!

My IBS has similar lower GI effects, though not as dramatic as yours. My bloating and to some extent the cramping and pain has finally faded...yay!

Here's to continued progress. I'd probably drop by today, but I have a new bedframe to assemble and horses to ride. We'll see how it goes. I may want a break.

Here's to peristalsis!

(You know I sympathize fully ;-) )

I was thinking about you this morning on my drive into work. I'm glad things are going better this time. I hope there is no next time.
