Throat Blog — Escape Plan Foiled

Well, after titling my previous post Escape Plan Plotted. I never actually explained the plot. Shame on me.

The plot is–continue to get better faster so that they’ll kick me out of here.

And, that plan was working. This morning I had definitive proof that my entire digestive system was flowing. And, when the Dr’s came by at 8:30, they allowed a liquid diet. I had several broths and juices.

Then, around 10, Jello got added to my allowed diet. So I had a couple of those. Dr’s came around again around 11 and saw that I was still doing OK.

So, I was taken off of all food restrictions. For lunch I had Chicken and Dumplings, then about 1/2 of a Rotini with Meat Sauce.

Escape plot definitely on track but…between the Chicken and Dumplings and the Rotini I had to make a fast bathroom break. Then again after the entree. Then again. Oh, then again. Jeez!

Had an oatmeal raisin cookie (and again) and some strawberry ice cream (again).

Then again, and again.

Ok, so a clean escape is only possible if I live about 5 minutes away. An escape attempt any farther away would be, well, not so clean. And I live about 45 minutes away. Would take careful route planning, many quick stops, lots of luck, and several changes of clothes.

So, escape plan is on hold. Meanwhile I’m going to order a Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Fruit and Yogurt Plate, and Seasonal Pie for dinner.

Tonight I’ll try to sleep (in between “and agains”) with two phrases rolling around in my head:

  1. This, too, shall pass.
  2. Never trust a fart.
