I’m sitting in the calm of a sleeping house all prepped and ready for surgery. It’s currently 1am here in Washington state. We’re a tad behind the rest of the world. 😉
I’m not sure if a bowel prep is better with or without an ostomy. I had the grand pleasure of putting 2 Liters of soapy (go figure 🤷🏼♀️) water into my stoma. I have a loop ileostomy, so there’s the output portion, and the part still connected to my hiney. You can probably imagine the rest, lol. If anyone needs advice with this particular prep, I’ve done it twice now. I’m just waiting on my t-shirt in the mail. 🤦🏼♀️
I check in for surgery at 5:30 am. I know I have a recto vaginal fistula repair to start, and possible reversal. I want to thank all of you for your friendship, laughter, and support. I will update as soon as I’m lucid. Although it could be more fun if I’m still doped up. 😂
I can’t wait to chat with y’all while I’m recovering. Laughter is after all the best medicine. Much love to everyone!
