After having subsisted on mostly liquids and squishy foods for five days and being a bit wonky in general from the antibiotics and aftereffects of anesthesia, do not be surprised when your tummy ache presages wicked diarhea, Likewise, do not be startled by its flaming crimson color.

Also, I would pay a lot to be able to blow my nose. But not until Saturday.... sigh. Gagging up bloody snot is losing its glamour somehow. Yeah. Somehow.
