Glimpse of Connor during Gut Phase
He ran from me when, as they were leaving, I was chasing him with the tree lopper to get through one branch I had hacked through lack of strength a few days ago. It was 30 seconds of favor. I insisted. Under sufferance he did it. He is not much of a giver and he would not give in an inch to Connor who wanted to go to the closest park to here where he had built a stick house and wanted to see if it was still there. But know, whether Connor liked it or not, they were going to Mooloolaba Beach to have curried-egg sandwiches which Dad knows his son won't eat. Go figure. S was not like this the night Mum spoke to him on the phone and when he was that person he would not remember being the kind of mean killjoy that he is today. He had that suspicious look in his eye whereas the other day I got hugged for a greeting. I hope he finds his comfort zone or safe place later today for Connor's sake.
He has also now decided he needs Vitamin D (some of mine ofcourse). He announced he quit on the cellular stuff and the fish oil. Now he seems to have picked Vit D but the few I put in a bottle for him, he forgot to take, just like Wednesday when he forgot to take the bread he so badly wanted.
From Gecko's to Guts;
my gut is still playing up but not acutely now. I think the chronic version is here for a while. The motions are back to normal unless I let the spasms mount by eating too much or moving too much particularly bending. Every morning I have had to take some codeine to slow it and it works but I have to be careful not to slow it down too much. Unfortunately the joints have joined the party so now I am swallowing glucosamine and chondroitin. My afternoons have been OK but the aching is getting to me. I have spent so much on supplements this year.
