Random thoughts (really needing to just get stuff off of my chest....)

Isn't it funny how important it is to poop? We are waiting here at the hospital until he is able to do this most important process. There is a small chance that he may have ileus- which means that his intestines may have stopped working for a bit. This could be caused by the anesthesia. Not sure this is what is going on but the boy has not pooped. If this is the case he would need to be in the hosital a few more days. They would stop food intake and put a tube down his throat to clean out his belly. Then his body would slowly start to work things through again. Hopefully he does not have this.

We will wait and see how today goes- he may come home today. I am nervous about taking him home and caring for him. Especially since I have two kids and a full time job. But we will make it. Always do.

His pain seems to be a bit better today. He was up walking around 5 times yesterday and 2 times today. I have a script for a walker and raised comode. Fun. He is farting like a trooper so let's hope we get some real substance..

The kids are doing great with this. Veda has been a bit anxious about her Daddy. I took her out for a special mommy daughter breakfast this morning. She needed it. Soren just needs to sleep. Little shit was up several times last night. Just needed some loving I guess. More later.

Glad to hear that Jeff is up and moving around a bit. Is he going to be able to get up and down out of your bed once he is home?

Okay, so this is what I do with Jake to get a good poop....
To the tune of "If youre Happy and You Know it."

If you're happy and you know it
Poop on the Potty!!!!
If you're happy and you know it
Poop on the Potty!!!

If you're happy and you know it
Make a stinky poop and showing it

If you're happy and you knw it
Poop on the potty!!!!

And that my friend, is my potty song!

Happy Poopin
Love you

So glad all is going well. Lots of people don't poo after surgery, so don't worry about that. It is a big deal after giving birth/(esp with -sxns), too, if you remember! Hang in there. Glad the good vibes helped. Big hugs to all of you! Cari C
