Now Playing: Day 809-The Final Road To Survival
OK. If the weathermen were getting paid per each accurate forecast they sure did hit it on the nail today! WHOA! Its FLIPPIN HOT, HOT, HOT!!
Don't let this photo fool you seeing this was just mid afternoon. This is the time of year when I get into huge trouble. The sunlight is one thing with having a seizure disorder but adding horrible heat and humidity also takes a big toll on my Idiopathic Gastroparesis. Its easy for patients to not only become dehydrated but the heat drains what little energy we have to start with on a daily basis. I need to do lots of walking and with the summer heat and humidity now in full swing its leaving me scrambling for indoor places to walk through out the day into the evening hours. This is the time I must get creative or I run the chance of bowel obstructions by not keeping gravity on my side. Sure, the Drano aka Hell-In-A-Jug works but it doesn't work all the time since my condition continues to progress. This evening we had to start finding indoor complexes where I could walk down the pain and inflammation. Crazy the things Gastroparesis patients have to do in order to stay out of trouble. I tend to think the summer months are the worst for all of us.
My friend John sent me an update on the beautiful weather they are having out in Napa, California. A cool, dry 80 degrees with variable light winds. Gees! Like I really needed to see that and now it only makes me yearn to move out west even faster. I would take the weather out there any day compared to this nasty heat. Better yet, maybe Alaska or even better the North Pole. "LOOK OUT SANTA! HERE WE COME!" Hee,hee,hee,hee... By the time it was 8pm the temperature was up to 104 degrees. I haven't seen any tumbleweed just yet but if this heat continues it won't be too much longer.
Tomorrow is dreaded Friday for this gal. Its the day I meet my new surgeon and surgical team. Eric calls it the day of, "Bad news or worse news." Anyway for him is going to be bad because lately the jolly green giant inside my body has become down right ANGRY. He also has noticed the increased inflammation with my intestines and abdominal swelling so you can certainly bet there isn't going to be any good news coming out of this appointment.
Knowing tomorrow will mostly likely be a long day physically and mentally we just decided to call it another late evening catching up on the last of our favorite recorded shows. The fur gang didn't mind a bit and after hearing Oreo's snoring I don't think he did either. Hahahaha!
