Hello, internet. I don’t know what to write about! I’ve had a rough week, health-wise, and it’s zapped me of all desire to do anything that doesn’t involve finding a position that isn’t painful and laying motionless until it becomes too uncomfortable or I have to get up to go to the bathroom (whichever comes first). I guess I’ll just write about what’s going on.
I spent the last few days watching Friends and playing iPhone games. In the words of my husband, “so your brain is basically mush, huh.” Yep. I tried reading Thanks for the Feedback, but I couldn’t concentrate. Yesterday it took me 6 hours to finish a bowl of mashed potatoes and a bottle of ginger ale, because when food makes you hurt, your appetite disappears.
I am feeling a little better today, but that’s not saying much. I’m still stuck in bed and feeling pretty miserable, but my appetite has improved, I haven’t thrown up, and I’ve taken fewer trips to the bathroom. So I’m hopeful that I’m on the mend.
Things with Lulu are getting better. She is more obedient, and her personality seems to be returning. I still have a little trouble trusting her, but I’m not scared of her anymore. Thanks for your prayers regarding that situation. I know it may seem like a silly problem to some of you, but it’s deeply unsettling to not feel safe in your own home, because of a beloved pet. In fact, I’m almost positive that the stress of last weekend’s aggression issues are what triggered this Crohn’s flare-up.
I really appreciate all the prayer and the love y’all have shown me in regard to my health. It’s hard to write about, because I have so little control over it, and I’m afraid that I’ll be bombarded with well-meaning (but overwhelming) suggestions for improvement. But I’ve been overwhelmed in a good way by your care for me. Thanks, y’all.
