9 hours in the ER

We spent 9 hours in the ER on Sunday evening. It was an experience I don’t want to repeat anytime soon. Why we were there will be under a TMI shortly.

It’s Monday October 26, 2020. COLD, WINTER COLD. Someone has mother nature all confused. We seem to be skipping fall this year. Or so our 3rd snow this year is the new Iowa.

Mom didn’t come to visit after all. Me spending 9 hours in the ER thinking I would be admitted. That would have just messed up her visit. So we are rescheduling.

Had a phone appointment with Dr. Eastin today. I really like him as my shrink, he listens, he asks good questions, and he obviously takes incredible notes. Better than any shrink I have used before.

OK, here’s the skinny on why I was in the ER. And the aftermath.

I hadn’t had a bowel movement in 2 1/2 weeks and it had started to get painful. So, after trying EVERY laxative we could find, the ER doc suggested GoLyghtly, which is the laxative/drink they give people heading in for a Colonoscopy.

Well, nothing done in the ER did anything for me. So we went in to this GoLyghtly with a grain of salt. Well, we were down to the last glass, when finally I had the bowel movement to end all bowel movements. Needless to say, I feel considerably better now. All it took was just short of 3 liters of GoLyghtly. My stomach is stomach shaped, not squared, it doesn’t hurt to touch my stomach. Now, if I could quit having bowel movements (now that I am mostly cleared out) I’d be a truly happy man.

Tuesday is supposed to be the coldest day of this coldness, so of course I have to go out. First I have to meet with Krystal (One of Wehbe’s nurses) about the situation covered under the TMI. Then I have an anti-pneumonia breathing treatment. Then we are stopping by Wal-Mart, and finally grabbing some lunch and home around 2. It’s gonna be cold and miserable outside.
