Mood: don't ask
Now Playing: Day 736-The Final Road To Survival
Its one of those days...Add Drano aka Hell-In-A-Jug to the mix and double whammy! Sara, can you print out each page over the past two years that I have consumed Drano? Hmmm...If you do can you please let me know how many jugs I am up to now so I don't have to keep guessing anymore? Hee,hee,hee,hee...The wonderful part of being a tech/computer geek is knowing how to utilize IP addresses from the web or when you get anonymous messages sent to your cell phone but luckily my illness never took away from my IQ.
So you know the drill once again because treatment day means BLAH day! Line up the ole glasses, get the red Hawaiian punch ready to do shots then chug away...Hit me fast, hit me slow, anymore I don't know which way it will go. I feel for my dear fellow GP friend Jennifer who endures the ole Mag-Citrate on a weekly basis. The fun never ends no matter if its colonoscopy/surgical prep aka Drano or glass bottles of fun-Mag/Citrate. Some how though I tend to believe only the strong get handed down paralyzed intestines. At least its good to know I am not alone. Jennifer is not alone. Jeannie is not alone. AnnMarie is not alone. We are only a handful of those who endure torturous weekly treatments but hopefully in the future those who are diagnosed with Gastroparesis will have other options besides consuming liquid dynamite. Amen!
By early evening I was BEAT but one must keep moving. Littleblue had so much outdoor time in between playing in the backyard and taking walks she was out early for the count! Bear kitty is in this picture snuggling by her head but tends to blend in with the couch, hahahahaha! My friend-Caregiver kept busy relocating the plum tree in the backyard. Its a good thing we decided to move it now seeing the roots were almost impossible to dig up and replant but after an hour the tree finally has a new home located next to the peach tree. Maybe if I get a few more fruit trees I can just go in the backyard and pick my own fruits to juice. Nah, I tend to agree by saying the only ones who might end up enjoying the fruit in a few months will be the wildlife. I can only imagine the deer in the backyard come early June when the plums and peaches will be ready to pick. At least I will be able to catch some great photo opportunities!
With a specialist-free week I honestly don't know what to do with myself. The only one with a doctors appointment this week is my friend-Caregiver. Better him this time than me! I am sure I can find better things to do with my time then visiting my doctors and getting blood taken, scans done, etc. Hopefully this much cooler weather will hang around long enough till the end of the week that way I can get the new patio furniture out and spend some time r e l a x i n g...
The only other thing this week I have hanging up in the air is getting a new hair style. My hair has royally suffered by the hands of Drano treatments and Gastroparesis. I have been taking a poll asking friends if I should keep my hair long or cross my fingers it starts growing back instead of continuing to come out OR go for it and get a new style. The winning results so far: NO WAY! I love your long hair, KEEP IT!
I guess all I can say to that is, "Time will tell" or my hair will first. HA!
