Unhappy

I am sorry the boys were disrespectful of your property.
You have every right to be angry.
hopefully they will shape up and not park on your side.
next time take your pictures and report them to the office.
I think that is a good idea you have.

Kay,



I also don't think that what you said was bad but parents trying to defend their
obnoxious children will do what they can to pick a fight /change the issue.

I hope that the kids can be convinced to be less obnoxious with the bikes.

Thank you, ladies. You made me feel a little less like a monster! lol

Corey told me yesterday that he's not mad at me. I know he's still obsessing about the whole bike situation. He's more PO'ed about the bikes than me, but not happy about Saturday's altercation.
I've had time to think about the situation, and I'm not so sorry I swore at the kids because it got their parents attention- for better AND worse.
The boys played outside the apartment yesterday, which we have no issue with, and they kept their bikes off the patio. They still don't know, or care to know, where to put their bikes per the agreement with our neighbor, but that's HIS problem.
The father of the kid upstairs stuck a note in our mailbox with his name and number on it, asking us to call him if we have any problems with the neighborhood children. So, there is a way to possibly work this situation out without future bloodshed. I think it was very nice on his part, and I will take him up on his offer, but we will still continue to take pictures, and at the first sign that he is unable, or unwilling, to control the situation, we will get the office involved.
If Corey continues to brood about the situation, I will tell him to "CUT THE S-", too. It is quiet at the moment, so I'm over it now.

Anyway...

Forget how I know, but I KNOW that there is a narrowing somewhere in my intestines, which is obviously why I ended up with the obstruction that landed me in the hospital, tho it was not obvious like this before. And right now, I've been having severe abdominal pain because I'm very constipated. I'm very worried I may become obstructed again, but things are kinda moving at the moment. I did not know whether or not to take Mirilax this morning, but in the end, decided I should. Hopefully, that was the right thing to do.

I'm expecting a call from one of the doctors on the surgical team for a follow-up after my hospital stay, hopefully today. I need to know what to do in my current situation and beyond, and I they need to relay to Dr. Chen that I definitely DO have a narrowing. I don't know what can be done about it, aside from another surgery tho. If I don't hear from them this morning, I may call them this afternoon. Constipation is nothing to sc'ew around with in this situation. I don't want to end up back into the hospital

That is what I'm hoping, and that's how I usually handle things... waiting it out.
Thank you

I'm guessing the mom just thought she had to say something because
her son expected her too. But I'm also guessing she doesn't
worry to much about it. Its more for show for her to say something honestly.

She would have wanted to help you work it out if she really cared about her son and his friend. And his bike and what he learns to act like as an adult.

That honestly is how parents who care like the father, do things.
So remember that when she comes to blow her mouth off.

You make a lot of sense, Donna.

I think the mother wanted to pick a fight, and enjoyed the opportunity to do it, but was more for show, as you said. She was a crazy mess. It looked like she had not bathed in a long time, she couldn't stay on point, was saying some very odd things, and kept making strange (and very amusing) whole arm gestures. I think she's on drugs. She's lucky I didn't laugh in her face. Well, I did when she insisted her son had NEVER left his bike on our side of the patio.

I don't expect to have to deal with her regarding this issue again, if at all. I won't be swearing at anymore children, and I have the father's number now. Hopefully, we can work things out that way.

I decided not to wait for a call from one of the doctors, and called my surgeon's office yesterday. I got a call back from one of the nurses at the hospital, who said that Dr. Chen suggested I go on a liquid diet for the time being to see if I feel better. Another nurse is going to call me today to see how I'm doing, and to try to schedule an appointment with me to see her soon in her suburban office, which is hard enough to get to... there's no way I can drive into Boston.

I do feel better since going on the liquid diet. I had only had a little chicken noodle soup prior to that suggestion being made anyway. I'm not having any pain anymore. I'm still not going to the BR in any meaningful way tho. I think it will take a while, but I think things will work themselves out. I don't know how long I will be on the liquid diet, but right now it's not bothering me. I'm just worried about losing more weight. I've already lost 2lbs of the weight I gained back since coming home from the hospital.

When I see Dr. Chen, I'm going to tell her I'm content with just having D for the rest of my life. I don't want to spend my life in and out of the hospital with small bowel obstructions (I've had plenty of patients with that same problem), but I don't want to have anymore surgeries either.

I'm going to try to make a quick trip to the grocery store a little later today if my stomach feels okay. The walking will do me good.

Thank you Bobby, but all those protein shakes are grosss!!! I'm not ready for them yet
I only lost 1/2lb between yesterday and today, so that's not too bad. Honestly, I think this is a good weight for me to be at, but I am concerned about how I got here, and losing more weight that way, because it's not healthy. At some point, I may have to start drinking that crap tho.

I'm still constipated/impacted. I know I'm not obstructed right now (no pain, etc), but aside from some liquid D, which went around the impaction (not a bad thing), nothing is moving. It may be because the passage is just too narrow, but I think I just need more time. This morning things seem a little more promising tho, so maybe something will happen...

I'm glad that I called Dr. Chen, and she suggested I go on a liquid diet because I think that I would be in trouble, or at least in a great deal of discomfort, right now if I didn't. I spoke to a nurse from Tufts this morning who told me that Dr. Chen was of the same mind, that things would probably resolve given time, and I should stay on a liquid or soft diet in the meantime. The secretary from her S office is going to call me tomorrow to schedule an appointment.

Being on a liquid diet, and being unsure of how long I would be on it made meal planning and grocery shopping pretty difficult yesterday. I think I did okay tho. I really didn't enjoy cooking and doing the dishes for a dinner I couldn't eat last night, and am not looking forward to doing it again tonight. Fortunately, I bought things that will be easier for me to cook going forward, whether it's for one or two people.

Today is lottery day, so I will at least get out of the house to do that. I think I will do a little cleaning today, too. Moving around is in my best interests right now.
