Do Not Feed the Doug


I called the hospital this morning, only to discover from Doug that the nice folks at the hospital had taken Doug off the fabulous clear liquids diet and put him on the Ethiopian Empathy diet instead.

Yep...nothing but IV fluids and the occasional additive courtesy of the pain pump.


It turns out the strawberry milk they gave him last night after we left, didn't agree with him and his stomach was a little distended this morning...which is an indication (to me anyway) that it was a little too soon for poor Doug.

I am not sure when they plan on reinstating his liquid diet or even when they plan on start feeding him something a little more substantial but I am hoping that it will be in the next day or so.

Hopefully the doctor should shed some light on all this tommorrow when he does his rounds.
