Well, I had my 3rd Fill yesterday and at the time, I didn't think that it did any good. I was able to eat about 3/4'ths of a Grilled Cheese sandwich and a few French Fries (I know, I know, slap me down now!!). So at breakfast today, I had originally planned on ordering a bowl of Oatmeal. But the restaurant had a huge party in this morning that wiped out their whole batch of Oatmeal, so I ordered their special. 2 Eggs, Ham and Pancakes. Well, I ate the Eggs and Ham with no problems. Then I cut the Pancakes in half, gave half of them to my DH, and started to slowly eat the other half. I got about 4 bites in and realized that I was full. So like the good bandster I am, I stopped eating immediately.
TMI ALERT, TMI ALERT!! If you are easily grossed out, please skip the next 6 paragraphs!
Unfortunately, I didn't stop soon enough! I shouldn't have eaten the Pancakes AT ALL!!! By the time I was walking out of the Casino, I realized that I was more stuck than I originally thought. In the restaurant, I felt a little tight, but not really stuck. I decided to go back inside to the Ladies room just in case I needed a toilet or sink! Once in the restroom and sitting on the toilet, I realized that I may actually be getting ready to have a PB episode. Now I have only had one PB to date, so I had little to go by, but I was fairly certain that I was not going to leave there without losing something!!
I got a big wad of toilet paper together and shortly after, I bent forward and retched into the toilet paper!! No food came out, just a ton of slime!! So much so, that I couldn't contain it in the paper!! It spilled over onto the floor in front of me! Luckily, I was in there alone! If someone had walked in, I think they may have thought that I was pregnant and my water had broke!! I immediately felt much better, so I cleaned up the mess off the floor as best I could and walked out.
Now, I have only PB'd one other time, and it was a very mild PB. I was not prepared for this episode!! I always wondered exactly what the slime would be like. I know that many other blogger's had reported having slimed a ton! But not really what it was like. To me, the slime was a little like an uncooked egg white, just not as thick. It is gross and messy! Oh, I almost forgot! I also could tell that I was starting to PB when my eyes would start watering, and my nose needed to be blown. By the end of the PB, I had to wipe my eyes and blow my nose several times.
So! We got into our car and started driving to Walt's Mother's house for the day. I didn't even get out of Reno before I realized that I may PB again! Luckily, I had a bunch of napkins in the car from a fast food place. I needed them! This time I PB'd in front of my poor Walt!! Before I knew it, he got off the freeway and pulled into a Taco Bell (I guess I grossed him out more than I thought!). He told me to go inside and get some more napkins, but for me to I threw out the others first! I went into the restroom and slimed into their trash can for a few minutes and thought that I was done, so I grabbed 15 of their large paper towels and walked back out to the car.
We got on our way again, heading to his Mom's place. In about another 15 minutes, I lost it again and PB'd! Luckily, I remembered that I had bought one of those trial size packages that had about 15 travel size trash bags in it from Target. So I immediately put the paper towels in one of the trash bags. Again, I felt much better.....until another 15 minutes! Again, another episode. Luckily we were within 15 minutes of his Moms place by then, so I was hoping to make it there before it hit again!!!
We did....but not by much. I spent the next 20 minutes in her bathroom, bent over her sink slimming. Finally, I started to feel worse and before I knew it, I bent over and actually threw up!!! I finally expelled what ever was stuck! A few small pieces of Ham and some mushy Pancakes!! I can say that this time I felt immediate relief and that was the end of the problem! Of course, it only took about one to one and a half hours to get it out!! I don't know how so much slime could come out! What I couldn't believe, was that through all of this, I didn't get anything on my top!!! Usually that is the first place anything that doesn't make it into/or comes out of my mouth ends up!!
The rest of the day was fine. We took his Mom to dinner later, and I ordered a bowl of Oatmeal to be safe, and I had no problem with the Oatmeal. Now!! You can slap my wrist about eating at all!! I know that I am not supposed to eat anything the first 24-48 hours. But I always do. I just try to eat something that is easily swallowed.
So the rest of the day has been smooth sailing, that god!! Although I wouldn't qualify this as a painful episode, it was definitely unpleasant and extremely messy. It wouldn't have been so bad if I had been at home where I could ralph in private!! I felt sorry for my dear Walt!! He had to be witness to all but the last 20 minutes! He said that he was very supportive and considerate. I said, yes, you kept your mouth shut, eyes forward and tried not to look! He said YES, that's the one!!!
Well, I will go for now so he can use his computer. I will post my thank yous for the nominations tomorrow after we get home!! Everyone have a great weekend, ya hear? So, till next time.
Aloha My Friends :)
