It was the Pie's Fault.....

Good Morning everyone!  It's cold outside....around here!

Well....I just finished chatting with one of my (Besties), via texting and I told her how mad I am at myself!!

I just had to do it......I had to have a slice of this delicious pie!!  Coconut Pie!!

Why?  Why?  did I do it?  It was the pie's fault.  It was screaming out at me...."Your taste buds need this!"

So....I did!  I ate a slice or maybe two.  Just imagine....a perfect flaky pie crust, that is filled with rich coconut cream, layered with coconut and mile high meringue.

Who could resist?

I wish I had.....because I now have another bout of diverticulitis! is painful.   

Trista took me to the Dr. yesterday and they hooked me up to an IV of fluid and meds....I was dehydrated and nauseous...The Doctor also gave me something for nausea, which made me so super sleepy!!

It was quite a sight....I'm sure!

This is the first step, and hopefully it will get better.  Dr. Robin informed me that I might still have to be admitted to the hospital....if we don't see some great changes.   I'm hoping not!

Not sure that I ever completely got over the bout in October!  I guess we will see how good the meds work.....

For now....I'm sitting, drinking, drinking, and drinking..lots of water and Gatorade!   

Our New Year's Eve celebration will be a quite one this year.  
 What plans do you all have for celebrating the New YEAR??

I am so sorry to hear that you're having such a painful experience. I too would have eaten the pie. In fact, after spending the holidays wearing warm knit pants I put on a pair of jeans yesterday and realized I must have eaten quite a bit of pie and everything else! Back to the eliptical this morning and I hate that thing. I sure hope this doesn't last too long Shug and that you're back to your chipper self soon. If I were closer I'd offer to come over and take that pie off your hands, but I'm sure your family did that. Get some rest kiddo!

Oh my gosh! I think I have become an expert on this. I have been hospitalized four times (once for ten days)I have visited a surgeon, I am on experimental drugs and a diet now. It could be that you never really got rid of the last bout. Also, I think coconut is not good for it. When I had an active attack, it was on the no no list. But who knows, you may have gotten it anyway. Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions. It is a constant struggle for me, but no attacks in a year now!! I must be doing something right! Praying for you!!!

My grandmother suffered with this condition, so I know it can be very painful. Best wishes for a good recovery. Stay hydrated and be well!
