Fart, Fluffer, poot

Today we’re talking about gas. You know how babies get those little grimaces that we call smiles because they need to pass gas? Those are not smiles!

Crass is it sounds I’m at the place where I need gas to move I am trying to move it in order to get other things to move so I can move.

It’s painful. Painful to have gas painful cough it’s painful to sneeze is painful to laugh. I suppose I should count my staples at some point.

Today we are trying to stretch the amount of time in between my painkillers. I need your prayer that Jesus will be my strength in between those times when medication wears off and I wait for it to take effect again.

I bought an audiobook to listen to try to take my mind off the pain at those times when I’m feeling like I’m falling behind. My next pain load will be probably at about midnight.

Today they pulled the picc line out from being so close to my heart it was making my chest race. Hopefully that’ll boost my energy even more tomorrow.


Now I’m having a nebulizer treatment and then going to try to go to sleep. I’ll save you some eggs for tomorrow morning.

    Farting . . .the funniest topic at the dinner table that we’re not supposed to talk about! LOL!! I’m glad things are moving along well, so to speak! I feel your pain with gas that won’t move along after major surgery!! I can only recommend soothing low level background music that relaxes the entire body and mind (spa like), alternated with light comedy tapes or DVDs to help with keeping your mind in a happy place and ease the transitions as you recover! You have come a very long way in a very short time and the strength you and Josh have shown us all is tremendous! You all continue to be in my thoughts and prayers, and some day soon you’ll be sitting around the camp fire and laughing about how important farting was at one point in your life!! Have a great day Scott!

    those eggs look awful.. LOL… so happy to hear that you are doing so well… gas and all .. you are a walking, talking miracle.. you do realize that, don’t you? I would imagine that nobody minds the gas and all the unpleasant side effects of medications, surgery and a new liver .. we are all so very blessed that you and Josh are on the mend and at some point in the future this will all become an distant memory.. We are all still praying for you and your beautiful family.. in the meantime, do what they tell you and continue to improve and walk out of there sooner rather than later..

What are you thinking? Tell me!
