Living an involuntary hermit's life. Working towards living a healthier, gluten-free, hopefully cancer free life with my 2 dogs, 3 chickens and loving family.

Living with intention

When stumbling through life isn't good enough anymore..... decide to be yourself and enjoy life, and pay attention to Gods gifts all around.

Sleep....A Wonderful Thing

Something I did not mention about last weekend.  On Friday night, I was up throughout the night with "issues".  I know I did not get glutened and find no matter what my diet is, after a honeymoon stage, my digestion goes back to it's "crappy" normal ways.  So I was tired on Saturday but still functional.

Saturday night, again, up all night having accidents, cramps and "issues".  So Sunday, to say I was a bit rummy would be an understatement.  But still, we came home and then went to David's.  After drinking the Hurricane David made for me.  Well I thought, "Boy am I going to sleep well tonight".

Sunday night, Monday morning.  The phone rang around 2:00 am.  My brother David was having complications again from his surgery about 6 weeks ago.  So I drove to Mt. Angel and it became quickly evident that he was needing to go to the emergency room.  After a couple hours the doctor decided to admit David and later his surgeon decided to take him back in for surgery to take a look and do repairs.  After David got out of surgery, I started yet again having "issues" and went home.  I spent all afternoon having a very bad episode. 

Monday night, Well I slept, slept, and slept.  I think that was the most tired I have ever been and the best I ever slept.  Thank goodness.  Today I am suppose to have a couple friends over for coffee but I think I am going to cancel.  I have some business to take care of and I want to go to David's house to see if he needs help with anything.  Normally, I would have friends over for coffee and take care of the rest after, but I am back to being managed by my bowels and need to take care of business before my next digestive session.
