Have you ever had one of those days? Of course you have!!
Sorry to take so long since my last post. But with so much going on, and sooo many hoops to have to jump through for a while, I feel really stressed and over loaded. I have so many things to accomplish, that I feel like I am running around in circles and not getting anything done!!
Anyhoo, I want to tell you about my recent horrible experience!! As you all know, if you have been reading my blog, we just had my FIL'S Memorial on Friday. But we had so much food left over! We of course took it home to eat on. So Saturday night, I had some of the Chicken to eat. Unfortunately, I chose some of the worst pieces for a Bandster to eat! Some of the pieces were fine. They were from the center of the Chicken & more juicy. But the other pieces (these were all small pieces), were from the edge of it, where you get the seasoning, hence more flavor. But it is also the driest area!
After eating them, I realized that I had made a mistake & shouldn't have eaten them! I was stuck!!! It hurt.....a lot. Then I thought that it was going to pass through. It kind of went back & forth, until finally, it went through!!! So I thought I was safe!
Then, later on that night (remember that I am up really late every night), I got hungry again. I remembered that there was One Donut Left, from Friday morning! I couldn't resist it! I figured, it would go down easy, like a slider food. Right? I WAS WRONG!!!
TMI ALERT!!! Don't read if you get nauseous easily!!
Again.....I was stuck!! But in the past, I was always able to pass it through. So I elongated my body trying to stretch out my Esophagus so it could slide down easier (thus getting rid of the pain in my chest) & hopefully pass through the Band into my lower Stomach! Usually this works, but this time....it wasn't. Then I thought, maybe if I could bring it back up? I have read on others blogs that if they could bring it up, it was a great relief.
Luckily, my plate was still sitting on my desk next to me. I leaned over it & opened my mouth & out came a few pieces of the donut with a lot of clear slimy gunk! Sorry, I don't know how else to describe it!! It was clear liquid, but kind of slimy! So I went into the bathroom thinking that maybe I could bring up some more. I was blowing my nose like crazy & I spit out some more gunk in the sink, but not too much more. I kept doing this until I finally began to burp! Once the burping began, I knew that I wouldn't be expelling any more gunk & it was going to pass through!!!
So I guess you could say that I have had my FIRST PB EPISODE!! What an accomplishment! I am glad to have finally experienced it, yet I am hopeful that I will never have to experience it again!!! Of course, this is wishful thinking and I KNOW that it WILL happen again!! It is inevitable!! But I can do my best to not let it happen again. And luckily for me, it was a relatively easy PB compared to some of the others I have read about! Mine only lasted about 10-15 minutes, whereas, others I have read about lasted hours!!!
So, yesterday was Walt's 55th Birthday. Our Daughter Kat & her Husband Elliott took us to dinner at the Claim Jumper restaurant. The dinner was excellent. But it was sooo much food! I only ate about 1/3 of my meal. So I have food for lunch & dinner tonight! Then we came home & our other Daughter Christa & her Husband Mark & our adorable Grand Kids, Walker & Emily came over with Walt's Birthday present & a home made cake!! We knew they were bringing a cake, so we stopped at the store & bought some ice cream to go with it. So because of this, we had a really high calorie day yesterday! I haven't even stepped on the scale, I am sure that it is up, not down!!
Well, I better go for now, I need to go to the store. I am out of my Sugar Free Kool Aid!! This is my water intake, so I have to go. Till next time.
Aloha My Friends :)
