RAINBOW POOP

TOT.
That means, "time on toilet."
We're talking about me and my bathroom fun.
YIPPEE!
Maybe I should start taking pictures of whatever my colon kicks out and submit it to ratemypoo.com. There's a thought.

So I'm still not feeling so good. Although the time frame inbetween is improving. That's a very big plus plus plus! The problem is I never know when the time will arrive that will cause me to be crippled over in pain, on the verge of passing out, pain ripping across my stomach area. Not fun.

The next step is to have an MRA. We'll see what the results are. My guess is good news, because that's how it will be. Okay?

They're trying to see if I have Inflammatory bowel disease or Ischemic Colitis.
Here's my goal:
Good news and treatable.

Being in pain and weak and stuck with tracking TOT's isn't my idea of a summer.

I've never spent more time looking at my shits then I have in my entire life. Always of soft substance, the rainbow version of colors are what I look forward to the most. Seriously, think about it. I get to see if my shits are red, or yellow. A lush green blended with a pretty brown.

Come on. You really think I enjoy the viewing of the poop? Not at all, but I have to find humor in it. Humor helps me when nothing else does. Right now for whatever reason I am sick in the colon and stomach. They have me on protonix to reduce the acid in the stomach and that should help with the pre ulcers they discovered and "erosions along the stomach lining. The biggest challenge has been trying to figure out what I can eat.

It pretty much is:
oatmeal
bottled water
oatmeal
bottled water
mashed potatoes
oatmeal ....

I have had some bland noodles, and some probiotic yogurt with the live cultures to help put some of the good bacteria to work to help reduce the sunburned lining within my colon. It's frustrating.

But, at least I get to say, RAINBOW POOP in a sentence.

What a bunch of shit!

Had to say it. Your diet sounds less than desirable. So much for the summer cook-outs. And unbridled fun. I hope they get to the bottom of this (pun intended) and get your pipes working right. Really, I am sorry you're going through this.

Hmmmm...I'm fresh out of bad poop jokes. I'm all for humor in dealing with health issues. I gave my friend a funny idea (the friend with all the stomach issues); for her last colonoscopy, she had her husband write across her butt (using a Sharpie!) "EXIT ONLY! DO NOT ENTER!"

Rainbow poo.. yeah, there's a one in a million catch line. ;)

I am praying for you and I sincerely hope you get the best prognosis possible. A good dose of complete healing would be nice as well.

Love ya!
