My husband, Blue Belle and I sat relaxing on the beach, however it was very windy and cold, so we got up to go for a beautiful hike. We walked past some horses on our nature walk.
She can just smell the food in this photo above, but she wasn't allowed on the deck due to her having what the health department determines to be very deadly germs that could kill everyone in the restaurant. She wanted very much to be with us, but we were fortunate enough to still be able to sit close to her. I at least got to enjoy a wonderful meal with my husband and dog before getting another intestinal block. We shared a piece of chocolate cheesecake together for desert before I got very sick. My intestines started to churn about 30 minutes after we left the restaurant and I dealt with some pain for a couple of hours. The pain in my abdomen would come and go in waves as I tried my best to relax and enjoy the rest of the day.
We stopped in a little town called Bolinas to shop and to relax some more before heading back to San Francisco. We had our bags ready to stay the night in a hotel. We stopped at one to see if the hotel had a bathtub and since it didn't, we headed back to San Jose.
The kitties were very pleased that we didn't stay the night. My intestines started to get progressively worse as the evening wore on. I stayed home from work Mon-Thursday. Mon-Wed. was the worst of the days, and by Thursday, the blockage had eased up and my bowels were able to start functioning again. I didn't dare eat another thing the whole week.
This morning, my husband woke me up and took me shopping at the air conditioned mall since the temperatures were soaring past 104. We shopped and I got to move around and get my bowels working again. We shopped for a swimming suit and went for a nice late swim in my new suit.
Oh what a week & back to work tomorrow!
