We Interrupt This Blog...

I just realized that I haven't updated in a while. I'm having a little mental health break.

I do have some good news to share. I didn't hook up to my "feed bag" that I'm on for my gastroparesis last Friday. Saturday morning my stomach growled for the first time in 6 months! I didn't have any message to my brain that said, "you're hungry", but the physical sensation was there.

I called my gastroenterologist and he's going to wean me off my tube feeding next week. In a couple of weeks I'm going to see a specialist at the University of Michigan hospital. Lastly I have an appointment with a pain mgt. doctor to try to help me with my consistant pain.

Stay tuned cause I'll be back in a few days with some updates, reviews & giveaways.

Hi dear Mimi, I wanted to ask: how are Youyou (Mimi Youyou haha, but I'm a simpleton), but your post already made that clear. You may be happy about the tummygrowl, but dear o dear, tubefeed and constant pain don't sound very great to me. But hey, congrats on the growling tummy. I truly hope you'll feel better real soon, sweet Mimi. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.
Give Oskar a hug please. (I'll soon write some updates on our zoo.)
