I am still in the hospital. On Sunday they began me on clear liquids. I get to drink tea, broth, water, popsicles and Jello. Yum yum; so tasty and filling. Needless to say I am starving. I had a dream about Burger King last night. It was delicious. I continue to make improvement. It is clear that being on all my medication via IV is the way to go for me right now. Unfortunately, there are so many meds and they are administered until 1 or 2 am so getting them outpatient is impossible right now. I also need to be eased back into food. Tomorrow or the next day I will get to eat some bread or mashed potatoes or something equally bland and boring. What I wouldn’t give to have a big pizza or better yet, Allen and Sons BBQ. My diarrhea has slowed both in volume and frequency. (I know that’s sort of a gross detail, but if I ever write a book, this blog is going to be one of the major sources of info and it helps to document as much a possible.) I think this gut rest was much-needed and the pain of starving my self and being teased 3 times a day with broth and Jello should be worth it. I continue to look for an unfurnished apartment here in Durham for when I get out. I’ve found a number of possibilities, some of which I’ve been to and feel safe getting sight unseen.
Well the Red Sox just beat the Yankees at Fenway. They made a great 5-1 comeback in the 5th to tie and scored 2 more in the 7th to pull ahead. But the point is it’s way past my bed time and I need my beauty sleep.
