"DO YOU WANT TO GO POO?"

"mumble, mumble?"

"I SAID DO YOU WANT TO GO POO?"

"mumble"

"BECAUSE I COULD GIVE YOU A STOOL SOFTENER AND YOU WOULD GO POO IN 10 MINUTES"

"mumble?"

"YES IN TEN MINUTES YOU WOULD BE ABLE TO POO!"

"mumble mumble"

"SO WOULD YOU LIKE TO POO NOW?"

ummm...not Michael.

He has the common sense to wait for the comfort of his own home.

Besides, he's not hard of hearing.

And when you read this, you have to read the shouting parts v-e-ry s-l-o-w-l-y and draw out the word poo for a very long time.

so, are we home?

I'm not, but he is.

He didn't get wink of sleep last night at the hospital. Morphine drip + vicodin + ambien and he was still wide awake.

But now he has his blankie, lots of red pillows, the soft sunshine, the swaying redwoods, and the kitties. And judging from the lack of posts today, I am guessing those work better than medicine.

it's hard to poo when you're not at your house.

sleeping has been the one thing that has been the hardest through this whole thing. It is just so hard to get comfortable, still.

I can't imagine ever being able to sleep well in a hospital. all those pinging machines...

I hope he has a wonderful nap with the kitties.

i am confused? who is needs to poo again? Olaf or VB?

what was the need to go? is it a post surgery requirement?

is it related to post surgery effect like constipation?

gah...

She never did poo?

I like that. A sort of defiant stance using the few weapons you have left.

To hell with all you people, I am not pooing.

after certian surgeries, they won't let you leave the hospital until you fart...odd but true...

The painkiller induced backup at the interchange. Traffic is backed up at the Caldecott tunnel.

Gotta love hospital stories. Fortunately for me I had my own room for the few hours I was in there. Could still hear the guy groaning and grunting next to me though. My daughter I think has been scarred for life... :)
