Digestion Hell

Hello World!

Well I have been in digestion hell this past week. Not enough coming out, so in turn not much can go in. Ive been having tummy troubles all week. Going to the bathroom is a bit of a task. Although I've never actually given birth, I felt like it this week on many occasions. I had cramping like crazy on one side of my abdomen. Its still there a little bit but not as bad as it was. Since nothing is really leaving my body, well not a lot has gone down, and stayed there! I'm still hungry... starving even! But about an hour or so after I eat, I tend to just puke it back up. Not keeping many calories down that way. No Calories = No Weight = DEATH SENTENCE (to be dramatic)!!!

I had clinic today. Lung functions same as 2 weeks ago which was good. Weight.... 90.5lbs. THERE IS NOTHING LEFT OF ME!! I'm like skin and bones, its gross. I have to have a certain BMI in order to stay on the transplant list. I'm half a pound away from being "deactivated" until I gain more weight. HOLY CRAP! My doctor told me the crampyness is due to a blockage! BLOCKAGE, greeeaaatt!!!! They think the blockage is due to dehydration. Very possible as I hate water and love to sit in the heat.

Solution: MIRALAX! And lots of it. Also 32oz of Gatorade a day, to replenish. If the Miralax doesn't work we move on to GoLytely... that stuff makes you go! Haha, so hopefully I won't need that. If both of those still don't work, surgery to "unblock" me. YIKES! I don't want any surgery. Anesthesia makes me really nervous. I don't like being "knocked out." And I heard it can be dangerous for patients with respiratory problems. I don't need anymore 'danger' in my life. I'm pretty tapped out.

So hopefully I gain back the 8lbs I have lost in a week and a half. I can't be this small. Its just not healthy.
