Under Pressure

I took a contrast study yesterday. And, like all three of my fortune cookies said, it didn't turn out so good.

I now have two leaks, and one of them isn't getting any smaller. The other one is getting a teensy bit smaller every time - but if it gets just a little bit smaller each time, it could take years to close up (that's what the radiologist said). So Dr. Thompson is going to have to go in and totally redo the ostomy. Like take the small intestine back up and in, take the J-pouch off and sew it on again, and then take the intestine up and over my skin again.

It's going to be a while before I have this thing off. Like, a really LONG while.

It's time for me to give my blog a makeover again! Christmas is over. The best gift I got is a tree ornament from the amazing Neer family that has me as a doctor and says 'Who needs a colon?' on a perscription bottle I'm holding. I love it!!

On Vh1 and Vh1 Classic, they have a countdown of the 100 Greatest Songs of the 80's. It's the best. Haley and I were watching it and we were trying to figure out what song would be in the preview if my life were made into a movie.



Word to your mother.

Word to your mother? What does that mean? Is it nice or are you dissing me? Because if you are, then word to YOUR mother (who also won't know what it means.)

The additional surgery is not where you hoped to be at the moment. Just think what a breeze medical school will be after all this.

I am so thrilled that you liked the ornament! I love those things...you can totally customize them. And yes, I did see the irony of giving all of you guys Christmas ornaments. But I made sure they weren't too Christmas-y lest Nana Judi view me as trying to convert her Casela...the next generation JAP.

Missed seeing you.
