Jill’s a lot stronger today. She’s already walked 4 times logging 13 laps and it’s only 2 pm. She ate some solid food for the first time too….eggs and grits then some of a Snarfs sandwich and of course a little ice cream – thanks Rebecca for being the lunch fairy everyday!
She’s able to sleep a lot more now because the private room is so much quieter…and the sound reduction headphones from Eddie and Megan (thanks).
So today’s goal is to pass gas…an actual poop would be a miracle…but gas would be just as exciting! Every doctor that comes in asks about it….no it’s not a secret fetish…it’s important because it means her bowels are waking up from their long winters nap. It makes me wonder if the characters Terrance and Philip were created by someone that had colon surgery.
I’m hoping Jill looks like Philip by the end of the day!
There’s a lot of weird sounds churning around inside those bowels….it sounds like a scene from the Gremlins. That’s good though it means there’s a storm brewing. The first two days when Dr. Wise listened it was very quiet…sleeping from surgery.
I’ll keep you posted and her progress!
