I'm used to my daily pains and Saturday was just like any other day; had some pains and dealt with it. Things have been getting better and better with being able to digest foods; don't get me wrong, I still suffer in pain when food is digesting, just more so with certain types of foods. I decided not to eat anything except an Ensure for breakfast and just go with the moment laster on. My husband and I found out about this Pet Expo at the San Mateo Expo Center just that morning on television. He needed to see some sports so I decided to take my neighbor's 13 year old daughter with me to the Expo since I know she loves animals so much. She is also a brain cancer survivor and has the strongest spirit of anyone I have ever met. She is an inspiration.
We had lots of fun at the Expo and among all the things we got to do, we met a Kyra Sundance and her dog Chalsy from the this TV show (Showdog Moms and Dads) I used to watch that came on after "Groomer Has It" on Animal Planet. She has also been on "Pet Star", "The Ellen Degeneres" and other shows. She and Chalsy are the Author's of the Best Selling Book "101 Dog Tricks".
There were so many cool booths, demonstrations, products, everything pet related even down to an exhibit of snakes and reptiles, everything pet related, it was here!
After the Expo I took my neighbor's daughter out for some easy to digest food at my local Sushi (Kazoo) Restaurant and I just couldn't help it, I did have some miso soup, a few Cali rolls, and a sweet potato roll. I have to live sometimes and darn it sometimes its worth the pain. How much is it to ask if I could something digest normally? Normally, just the miso soup but I couldn't help it, when my neighbor grabbed at the Sweet Potato roll, I just had a to have a few. That's been my latest addiction lately. It is a California Roll, with shrimp, cucumber and sweet potato with a sweet sauce. So far I have been able to handle those and I limited myself with a total of 3 rolls and my Miso soup. After my neighbor had gone home, my husband returned from watching the games and we watched a movie together. My husband had made some popcorn and I snuck a few bites of popcorn (I love popcorn, just can't digest it) and then about 30 minutes later that's when the pain started. I had an official bowel blockage. I think it was because I didn't drink enough prune juice through out the day.
My stomach swelled up and we just continue to play a waiting game to see if it will fix itself.
