Poopy Patrol

I finished the 72 hour stool sample!!  Yeah! And for some very strange reason Gabe only went a few times. He usually goes 3 to 4 times a day. But he only went twice on Saturday, twice on Sunday, and once on Monday. Strange. Maybe he knew I wouldn’t have been able to handle opening that container more than that! And today I drove it to Mt Kisco (a 20 minute drive) to drop it off. They said it would take about a week to finish all of the testing. I do not envy the person who actually does the testing! And my good friend, A, drove with me to drop it off. Now that is a good friend who will ride in the car with you for 20 minutes with a big jug full of poop in the back! I had about 4 bags around it hoping to keep the bad smells inside!  This is a friend of mine who would do anything in the world for me but I never thought she was emotionally there for me. But lately it seems like she is trying harder. Maybe she sees how I am struggling to stay afloat with my emotions. Or maybe she is just realizing how good she has it with 3 healthy girls! But whatever I am thankful for her.  It’s hard to sometimes feel so alone with this disease.

PS We just got home from school a little over an hour ago and Gabe is now going poopy for the second time. I guess he is playing catch up from the weekend.  Interesting….
