Now Playing: Day 603-The Final Road To Survival
I had to give into the ole Drano today. The pressure pain from my intestines kept me up tossing and turning all night. By 2:00pm I had enough and vowed to finally do treatment. Luckily I have quite a few things to do around the house in order to keep me moving in between glasses of toxic poison.
Here's my Drano day in pictures:
1-At 3pm I got my glasses ready and set the kitchen stove timer. One full glass every fifteen minutes. Most stayed down but you can't win them all in the game of Drano aka Hell-In-A-Jug. At least the new refills don't taste so much like plastic unlike the last batch, UGGGG!
2-Finally my friend returned from 24 hours straight of working at the jail then drill for the Army. Guess what he brought me back? Popcorn for my very spoiled wildlife gang outside and the usual candy that is 'GP friendly.' How nice and thoughtful was that?! Since I was still consuming glass after glass of treatment I told him I would wake him up around 8pm. This allows him enough time to catch some sleep before having to get back up, take a shower and head to work at the jail then straight to the armory again. Wow! Must be nice to have so much energy! I am tired just thinking about all the hours he has to work this weekend. YIKES!
3-Within a few hours the treatment started working although one can never tell how bad its going to affect you. This time it was a sneak attack! Not only did it hit me but it seemed all at once. The only thing I did differently this time was not consume any fluids after midnight. Maybe that was the trick although I was in so much pain I wasn't thirsty. By 7:30pm I lost track how many times I was in the bathroom. A TV would be perfect in there! Maybe even a heated toilet seat, hahahaha! So much for a brilliant idea to run up to the post office in the middle of treatment. DUMB! My friend drove of course after he got up at 8pm because I thought I would be OK. Even OK enough to stop and get my local newspaper delivery boy a holiday gift. So we got the gift but I had to walk out of the store very slowly in order not to pass out and instead wait in the car. Let's just say it was a fast trip! What was I thinking? Sadly on Drano that's the problem...you don't think. All will be worth it to see the smile on the young man's face tomorrow.
4-After a exhausting day in between Drano and doing more than my fair share of house chores I am BEAT! Stick a fork in me and call me DONE! Unfortunately it was a must to do treatment so I don't end up in the hospital with an obstruction. Not so good being home this evening alone since family are all sick with the flu or other viruses. These are my fur nurses who will be keeping a close eye on Mom tonight into the early morning hours when my friend will be back to check on me in between jobs.
5-By 10pm I wasn't the only one struggling to stay awake. I think even the fur gang are tired and ready for bed. Good thing at least one of us will be able to sleep, hahahaha! Back to Drano land for this gal...
