Bristol Stool Scale

The Bristol Stool Scale goes well with the pee color chart we had a while back.

Perfect Storm

Off-schedule + menstruation + holiday food + stress + sorrow = perfect tummy trouble storm.

A Word to the Tummy Troubled Wise

When I first was diagnosed with tummy troubles, I read a certain tip in books and on the internet. I didn't take it. It seemed like a good idea for the really violently tummy troubled-but not me. I may have gone to the bathroom 20 times a day but I could always get there.
It was a me/them kind of thing. Yeah. I know. I am sorry.

Anyhow, have a bag of clothes, toilet paper, wet wipes and hand sanitizer in your vehicle and have one at work. Take my advice. Do it now. Also, when packing for a trip-pack an extra nightgown. (and extra pants too, obviously)

On a Sunnier Note

Next time you are antsy waiting for your colonoscopy because your doctor takes her time doing them...keep in mind...faster colonoscopies miss problems...which means down the could be spending MORE time in the doctor's office...or the morgue.

London Potty?

Gone potty? I don't know. I do know that this bathroom is opening in London, near or in some shopping center. 10 pounds a go. I am a little alarmed that this was opened in response to a lack of public bathrooms (only 400 in London, which is not a small town) and uh, I have to at least go through London to see my kids in Feb. I better put tummy trouble toilet money in my trip budget I guess. sigh.
