To answer the question that my dear friend CH posed...
I'm not in the pictures at the beach for two reasons.
1: I was taking the pictures
2: The lobsterfied parts of my anatomy lie below the waist, hence the previous post titled "toasty buns". It wasn't used solely for the cuteness factor.
Although I could give you a mental picture.. um.. no.
Probably not healthfood for the psyche.
Anyway, the swelling in my lower half is still pretty frightful, i've been led to believe by some well intentioned advice that i've suffered a bit of sun poisoning.
I wouldn't doubt it. I have old lady "kankles".. you know when your calves go straight into your shoes?
I'm pretty swollen alright.
I have to admit though, the sympathy help from my better half has been much appreciated. He's not usually one for the kind hearted sweet stuff, but the horror of my burntness and seeing me walk like I have no knees has brought out his softer side.
I'll take it where I can get it. I'm not proud.
As for the little runchkin, his gastric outputs have been way over the top all day today. I'm looking for a better way to set his g port to drain. All we have is a small plastic drain from the hospital and it does the job, but when his output is this high it's hard to keep up without it overflowing.
I'll apologize now to anyone in this area who had to step over the huge green puddle of stomach ooze that was left in the Albertson's parking lot earlier today.
Couldn't be helped.
If any of you have experience with this and can give me any bright ideas it would be much appreciated.
I wish Tuesday's GI test would hurry up and get here already.
