I'm always there for my sons, Francis.
Always.

Well! Thank God I finally have a day off!
Things were beginning to get very, very stressful at work.
Not just for me, but for everyone.
Between the flu that hit us hard, short staffing and vacationing going on as well, I came home a few nights and just collapsed in tears.
Hopefully we've moved beyond that now.
No big plans today.

Its family day up here so all the kids have the day off. Again. And the teachers are having another strike day Friday so they only go 3 days this week. Nothing on the agenda today other than driving my oldest in to the city so he can plan a winter camp with a couple of the venturers (venturers are older scouts aged 15-18) We encourage them to plan things out on their own for upcoming camps. We have a winter camp at the log cabin in 2 weeks.

Oh, and my only other task today is to hopefully take a dump. Lol. With this gallbladder issue, it quite often plugs me up for days. When that happens, I can't eat. So I've been losing weight rather quickly.

That's because you're not producing enough bile because of the gall stones.
Better be careful with that.
Hard chalky stools are a sign that something needs to be done.

I'm going to completely paint myself with a 100% silicone roof coating.

I won't do it on purpose though, I'll just end up that way!

I'm far away from being a doctor but there was a time a lot of people did fine using old traditional medicine. Here is one that has worked for me and others in the past:

Prunes and prune juice: A natural remedy for constipation

Eating prunes, or dried plums, can alleviate constipation. According to a study in Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition, dried plums and their derivatives, such as prune juice, can prevent constipation and may prevent colon cancer. The nutrients found in prunes may also help control obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.

Research also shows that using prunes and prune juice can be more effective than other constipation-relieving methods. One study in Alimentary Pharmacology and Therapeutics states that prunes work even better than medications containing psyllium. Another study says that prunes should be used as a first-line therapy for constipation.

A super fruit

Dried plums are considered to be very good for your overall health. Prune juice is filtered, so it doesn’t have the high fiber content of dried prunes. Still, both are laxatives because of their high sorbitol content. Dried plums also contain:

iron, which helps prevent anemia
potassium, which aids in healthy blood pressure
sugars combined with soluble fiber, which provides sustained energy
phenolic compounds, which help prevent chronic diseases
boron, which can help prevent osteoporosis

Recommended serving sizes

Prune juice is an effective remedy for constipation in both children and adults. When giving prune juice to an infant, the Mayo Clinic recommends trying 2 to 4 ounces at a time and adjusting the amount as needed. For adults, drink 4 to 8 ounces of prune juice each morning to stimulate a bowel movement. Copy & Pasted from Here
