I'm too tired to post!

I love to blog---but I am sleeping 12 hours a day and taking so many meds . I just can't seem to get enough energy to do aanything but work and sleep. Maybe I have to adjust to my new diet.

The Low Fiber Low Sugar Diet is composed of foods that are low in residue content. This diet therefore reduces fecal mass and avoids intestinal pressure. This diet is sometimes used in the treatment of chronic diarrhea, colitis and other gastrointestinal disorders, although more recently, higher fiber diets have been employed for these purposes. This diet is very useful for pre- and post-operative abdominal surgery. Eat three small meals per day and three fat-free sugarless snacks per day.
Do not increase serving sizes.

Sorry--I've been sick again

I wasn't out of the hospital long. I just spent another week living on IV's and morphine. This time a Dietician gave me a meal plan of bland foods with no sugar or spice. I go back to work Wednesday and I hope to be blogging soon. Thanks for the thoughts.
