At about 8:00 pm EST today I ...wait for it....PASSED GAS! Farting is a very big deal after GI surgery, I have learned, and I announced this with a very pleased look on my face to my night nurse, Tiffany. Tiffany and I are both happy with my bowel developments. Next up: the big BM!!! (When this is made, I fully expect confetti to drop from the ceiling. This is a revered right of passage after intestinal surgery, ensuring that everything is in full, working order.) Of course, you can also expect an exuberant announcement here, too. Matt and I are like expectant parents - we can't wait until our little BM comes! (Did I just take this too far?)


  1. Just as long as the confetti doesn't drop from... you... hehe.

  2. Haha - I deliberated with typing that, but told myself: "The truth must be known of surgery/Crohn's Disease! I will not hold back - this is for the people!" Or something like that! ;-)

  3. You can't go until you "go"!! There is never a way to go too far when it comes to toilet humor! Glad you are doing well and in good spirits. HUGS!!!
