The trumpets are a'blowin'

Yes, we have acheived the goal of "FartWatch '06" (Thanks, phenway!) I got to have solid foods for lunch, and after five days of nothing but broth, jello and italian ices, this was the BEST FOOD EVER. Steak with mushrooms, baked potato fully loaded, steamed veggies and vanilla cake. I think the broccoli helped matters move along *laugh*

I get to go home tomorrow morning, but still with a catheter for a week. Oh well, you win some, you lose some. At least I'll be blowing this joint.

I also got a phone call from semantique, so that was my high point of the day. :) No visitors, and outside of my half-brother, she was the only person I've talked to today for very long.

OH! Dinner just arrived and I see lemon pie!

LMAO! I'm so glad you got something to eat. You should go back and tag all of the entries since you were in the hospital Fart Watch "06.

I'm amazed that you're up and making lucid posts on LJ, to be honest. I can't imagine what 5 days without real food must be doing to you.

I'm glad you're doing well though, and hope that they resolve the issue that's keeping the catheter in - so you can get back on the road to feeling "normal" again, at least in time for the next major surgery!

I've been thinking about you.

I'm so glad you're doing well. I hate it when gas won't pass. It really hurts. :\

Sorry if that was a little TMI. Lol.

Yay for real food!!! Mmmm, lemon pie......

So glad you'll be going home today. Everyone knows that the hospital is no place to be when you're trying to get better! ;)

Oh. My. God. A few days without internet connection, and I missed FartWatch '06? How did that happen???!!!???

That's it. I'm sending some of the Big Guy's chili right away! Before you know it, you'll be your own personal gas-fueled rocket ship, orbiting the planet.

We reached the goal of FartWatch '06. Now we are on to PoopWatch '06. 7 days now. I'm ready to kill someone. Thankfully, my husband JUST pulled in the driveway with Magnesium Citrate, so that should be cleared up within hours :)

I'll be right as rain then.

lol. I just sent a package your way today. Although most of it won't help with PoopWatch '06, a few things in there might help.

If not, I'm going to send you a tub of my very favorite Caramel Dip and a bag of fresh apples. I don't know whether you'll curse me or thank me.

And a great way to get PoopFest '06 started in full blast.
