Well after many ups and downs this last week and especially saturday...we are back on track.
The TPN ( total perenteral nutrition) and the NG ( naso gastric) tube came out. The IV is still hanging around since he had 24 hours of severe dehydration. But overall he is doing so much better. The food is still not settling too well and even tho he knows he has to try to eat real food, after the 3-4 day stint of eating->blockage->throw up its hard to make yourself eat.
FYI if i lost some of you just take it as this...he had a block in his small intestine near the Ileum so the digested food just backed up. How awful. And fortunately his body has stopped producing so much fluid and we think the "twist" in his bowel is now unkinked. That is what the delay is.
A surgery like this has a huge risk of dehydration and we saw that first hand friday night into saturday when is already low BP dropped to 80. Crap.
So here we go, body...lets do it this time!!! GO RICH!!!
As for the update on what really annoys me...I think that I have another one. Running by ipoded runners or riders ( which is even worse) and they act all startled like it is my fault I startled them. Um HELLO. You are the one with the headset on! It isnt like i should have to run with a megaphone!
Getting a flat saturday, then having the car not start really was the point where I surrendered and just cried. Now I have peroneal tendonitis in my left leg from pushing my bike up hills in my cleats to get a ride home. And yes I had a spare but i couldnt get the staple out of the tire for the life of me that sucker was in there for good. At 32 degrees and 8am I had no fingers after 10 minutes.
Ok then...we have to thank the cast of Arrested Development for keeping us laughing this week. I cant wait for the movie. If You havent seen this series go get it. Watch it from the beginning...It is well worth it! Your dysfunctional family will seem pretty normal after this series!
