Tales from the plugged....

Well, tonight things turned a corner. I am out of the woods. Two weeks ago, I went home and my Mom noticed I wasn't eating and my stomach was very distended.  I am the queen of constipation, so no big deal, right? Wrong. I tried EVERYTHING - ennemas, Klean-Prep, grapes, binging, and bran muffins. Nothing worked. Mom and Dad offered to take me to the hospital, but I knew I would be tube fed Klean Prep. I have Klean Prep at home, so why go through all that trauma when I could drink it myself? In the last week, I drank as much as I could with an already sore stomach.

I've been home for most of the past two weeks. Thank you world for my amazing family. I was so close to going to the hospital. Thank you God for allowing me to stay in my home. Thank you for my Mom's bran muffins, grape Kool-Aid, cable TV and a place to be nurtured.

I gained weight, but who cares???! Life is good as long as I can poop! When I can't sh*t, I don't give a sh*t about anything else.

Excuse my language, but I've just been through an ordeal.

All In The Family....

Archie and Edith Bunker's Final Appearance

Jean Stapleton passed away on May 31, 2013. As a huge All In The Family fan, this saddened me. Edith Bunker's kind heart reminds me of my own Mom. Rest in peace Jean. Rain is hitting my windowpane. It's been raining all day. I watched Love In The Afternoon, an old Audrey Hepburn movie. Maybe I'm an old soul. I suppose that, as long as we have a soul, it doesn't mater if it's old or young.
