Yeah for poop!!!

I just got the good news that my father in law took a dump. Let me set the scene. He was taken to the ER Thursday afternoon because he could not stop throwing up. Long story short he was admitted with a bowel obstruction. Poor thing. Almost 8 hours in the ER and never saw a doctor but let's not go there. In the hospital from that night and finally pooped today. He has had a tube up his down and then down his throat to drain all the crap that he would have been otherwise throwing up since it had no where else to go. Let me just say how attractive that way. My father in law is this tiny little man who weighs like a buck thirty, ok? From all the throwing up, he lost 3 more lbs. Like he can afford to lose more weight. I, on the other hand, walk near a bakery and the fat runs down the street after me and attaches itself to my ass. But I digress. Hopefully he will get the all clear from the surgeon today that since he passed the obstruction on his own, no surgery is necessary. The poor man just got done with chemo and radiation and now had plumbing issues. I think he is way over the hospital. Poor thing. He lays there in his hospital gown that is like 8 sizes to big so it is constantly hanging off his shoulders, no teeth in, tube up nose with green crap coming out and what is left of his wild hair (he calls them his curls) is like all over the place. I know that does not sound cute but the man is so cute you could just eat him. I am very lucky in the in-laws department. I know some of y'all have horrid stories to tell but I absolutely love my in-laws, my FIL in particular. Keep saying prayers for him that he gets the all clear from the surgeon and keeps pooping. :)

Yay for pooping!

My dad has cancer, and takes a fibercon pill every day as a preventive measure.
Constipation is common in cancer patients.

Poor Baby....yeah all those cancer drugs really mess up the system and cause the plumbing problems. Not pretty. I hope he gets mucho better fast and gains some weight. He sounds like a great FIL!

I hope he gets the all clear soon and doesn't have to deal with this again. Sheesh! Poor fella.

Maybe next time you walk past a bakery, you should take FIL with you. :-)
