Now Playing: Day 796-The Final Road To Survival
After spending lots of time resting my insides are now screaming so its time to walk, walk and walk! I sure hope gravity is on my side over the next few days in order to work this gosh awful treatment out of my system so I don't end up back at the hospital.
I can't believe its another holiday weekend. If feels like we just celebrated Mother's day last week and here we are with it being just a few days away from Father's day. YIKES! Luckily I got my gifts last week when I was feeling fairly well because this weekend it will be low-key for me. Where is the holiday made for us patients? One where others do good deeds in order to help us conserve some energy. Wouldn't that be nice? A day to be pampered and for others to endure our daily struggles for a change. Maybe then people would finally understand our condition. AMEN. Sadly I still firmly believe no one will ever understand Gastroparesis unless they either take a week walking in our shoes or stuff themselves during every meal as if it was Thanksgiving over and over and over and over again. Since this is the first Father's Day weekend with little Erik we decided to do something as a family. I have a fun activity planned but of course with Gastroparesis its best not to plan too far ahead because you never know one day from the next. Hopefully this weekend will bring me a few GP-free days.
Now that the rest of the yard work and landscaping is near completion it was time to bring out the porch chairs and table. The fur kids were so excited that it didn't take long for them to jump up and take a seat with Mom. I had the chairs out earlier this week but Oreo wasn't feeling good so he didn't last that long outside. The weather is going to be in the mid 90's starting tomorrow so looks like we might have to hold off a bit before spending the evenings relaxing on the porch. Between my Idiopathic Gastroparesis/seizures and Eric's horrible allergies it appears we will likely be spending most of the summer months indoors. We sure do have a lot in common just like two peas in a pod. Hahahahaha!
