Well, I am still in the hospital. They’ve given me some meds to help control my anal leakage. My tests for campylobacter and other infections were negative so the antibiotics are doing their job. I am feeling much better. My weight is stable and the doctors say that as long as I stay stable for a couple of more days I can go home. I really miss getting to eat whatever I want though. I’ve been having dreams about eating BBQ every night. Man I miss that wonderful food. I still get tired easily and nap for a couple of hours every day. I am glad that things appear to be turning around. I’ve been in the hospital for 3 weeks now and I feel like I’m never getting out, so improvement is a welcome sign.
Fipp is back this weekend. It s alot of fun having her here. Tom and some of his friends from Annapolis also came to visit. We spent most of the afternoon talking. It is really nice to see other young folks and be able to make inappropriate jokes. Shannon also stopped by briefly, so it was a busy day. Now I am just watching Kansas and OK State. I wouldn’t normally care, but OK State is winning by 17 with 10 minutes to go in the 2nd half. Kansas is ranked #1 and it would be awesome to see an upset. I really look forward to getting to eat BBQ again. It’s really occupied alot of my thinking the last few weeks. I think I am officially addicted to BBQ since I ate it once a week before I got sick and now I’ve only had it a hand full of times since. But, I’ve been craving it since the summer. Man, it’s going to be awesome to eat it again. I can’t wait to go to Greg’s, Mac’s, Bill Spoon’s, Dixie Bones, Ole Smoke House, BBQ King, Bubba’s, every place. If you know of any good BBQ, it doesn’t matter how far it is, let me know because I want to check it out.
