Long story short - I was in the ER on Saturday for 15 cm small intestine inflammation, abnormal blood content and was released later that day. Before

released and were not supposed to get worse but they did. Dehydration also started to become bad. So earlier today they had me go and get some more
stuff to treat the diarrhea. It's been about 5 hours since then and I've managed to eat a bowl of chicken noodle soup, a cup of applesauce, a few
crackers, and a bowl of cereal. Previously, I could manage a max of 2 bowls of cereal a day.
