Dept. of Improving Health

The Return of Non-Slurried Food
Yes, it's imminent, because the endoscopy Bob had today appears to have stretched the duodenal opening enough to allow for a so-called "soft" diet. Huzzah! That allows tender meats, most vegetables, and potatoes — even french fries, which addition my beloved noted with an almost salacious gleam in his eye.

Of course, nothing ever gets done completely the first time. The gastroenterologist said Bob must come back in three weeks for one more procedure (more stretching) in three weeks, and he took a biopsy of an area in the stomach about which he had questions. More biopsies. Yay. Not gonna think about that right now, tiddley-pom, fiddle-de-dee.

Still, as long as there's no evidence of bleeding in the next day or so, we can consider today a success. Rejoice with us, friends, as we bid farewell to cream of wheat in all its iterations!

Yes, I'm deciding whether or not to head out and surprise him with some fries later today. He's still recuperating, so I could slip out of the house and be back with the starchy yummies before he knew it. Heh.And I will pass on your congratulations, most definitely.

Yay for Improving Health! BooHiss for the uncertainty down in the fine print. Here's to clarity and good, reassuring news soon, soon, soon.

Stretching via endoscopy beats surgery hands down. I am holding onto my utterly crude jokes until I'm there to deliver them in person.

*snort*

I look forward to your crudest jokes, and I suspect that goes double, nay, triple, for Bob(you just know it!)

We're going to remain hopeful about reassuring news on all other fronts, as well.

Re: Oh, Bother
No bother at all - the good wishes, and declaration that there should be loads of fries are accepted with alacrity, chez us. Thanks.

yay again!
(Because I'm running through the entire weekend's stuff, after Windycon, so I'm in reverse chronological, like Merlin . . . Why the dickens don't the people who build these things allow you to "bookmark" a point in the sequence so you can read *forward* from there instead of backward until something's familiar?
(OK, that's getting sort of off-topic, but close enough for folkmandom.)

You and Bob can commiserate on that one; he has wondered the same thing, I believe.

I hope Windycon was fun!
