After all the craziness with the water around here, I ended up needing surgery. There was no way around it. I didn't want surgery, but I had to or I wouldn't get better. You see I have Crohns and I have struggled with bowel obstructions for the past 2 school years. In the past, they cleared on their own without surgery, but it required an NG tube and no food or water for a week. This time I spent a week in the hospital, went home, and had to return the next day because it was back. When I saw my bowels on the screen down in x-ray, I realized that I had a really narrow area and it wasn't going to get better so I finally agreed to surgery. I spent a month in the hospital. I haven't been to work since January and I don't plan on returning until next school year. I hope to start blogging soon with my ideas for next year. I am just now beginning to feel like my regular self and I'm getting excited for summer with my son.
