So the course of antibiotics has failed to do what I WANTED it to do...

Surgery for divirticulitis (sp) correction is scheduled for tomorrow at 230 PM. Not noon as I was originally told.

All together now:
EEK!!!!!

OMG Tom, I am so sorry I have been a bit slow in catching up on my fl. I am hoping your surgery is all over by now, and all is ok?

I have gone back and read/reread your entries, and I realise you & I have a few things in common - I decided this when you were talking about your apartment and that you had things laying around etc.....it sounded like your were talking about me.

Ok, hope the hospital treats you a little better, and also that you will be allowed home real soon.

Luv,
Shelley

I don't know what they'll be doing to you, but if my husband's situation is similar to yours, it was the best thing that could've happened. After numerous bouts with diverticulitis and antibiotics, and mushy diets and high-fiber diets, he had a severe attack and they ended up removing 18" of his large intestine. Once he recovered from the surgery, he was good as gold. They took out the bad spot and ever since, he can eat whatever he wants, no restrictions. It's been 13 years.

*knock on wood*

Sending positive energy and happy digestive thoughts your way, T.

Yeah! This will be sort of what they will attempt tomorrow. Provided ot can be done fairly cleanly.

It'll be nice to hear from you on the other side of tomorrow, or however soon you'll be communicative. My husband was loopy for days, so maybe you'll finally get some of that much needed sleep - or at least be too doped up to know the difference.

Yikes! Here is hoping everything goes well. Remind me when it is done to tell you about when my 89 year old grandmother had this surgery (and survived and it went really well). Pain meds made her very funny.

Sending lots of positive energy your way. Post when you can and let us know.
