This is our cute dog Bella. She was diagnosed with congenital megaesophagus soon after we found her at 4 months old. Megaesophagus means that her esophagus is enlarged and lacks the muscle mobility to swallow food while horizontal. This is her “Baileys Chair,” which she needs sit in while eating and for 10 minutes after she eats. She eats soft dog food with a little water mixed in. She is now seven months old and doing great!

As we all know, living with roommates is a pain in the ass. Hell, living with anyone is a pain in the ass. These people have taken it upon themselves to use wit and written communication to avoid a ridiculous fight about simple matters.
When you start thinking about sex and who you plan on screwing that night, whether a one-night stand or good friend, you might want to take their allergies into consideration. And if you have allergies, don’t have one night stands or let your significant other know about them, because it is possible that you could die if you don’t take such measures. In fact, you could still die, so maybe just stick with people with similar allergies, or at least someone who won’t eat them due to the fact that they could KILL you.
A young woman, 20, and her boyfriend has planned on getting romantic, after he had a handful of brazilian nuts. She explained her extreme allergy to nuts and asked him to take necessary precautions before they hooked up.
The man brushed his teeth, rinsed his mouth out, washed his hands and scrubbed under his fingernails, according to science-technology website io9.
But what happened next has alerted scientists to the fact that the nut proteins can get into the seminal fluid.
The doctors at St Helier hospital in Carshalton, Surrey, had believed this was a normally contracted reaction to kissing or skin touching, until they were told about the extreme precautions that were taken, and have now determined that it can travel through sweat or saliva.
It is the first recorded case of an allergic reaction to Brazil nuts through intercourse.
To be absolutely certain, doctors brought the man back in and took two semen samples – one before, and one four hours after eating Brazil nuts.
They then performed a test on the girl, where they give a small injection with a needle covered in semen underneath the skin.
The tests proved that this nut did not break down during digestions, and were therefore able to travel through the immune system. Luckily the girl is alright, but the couple has been broken up. He probably realized that every time he ate nuts he’d have a hospital bill to pay for and she just wasn’t worth that kind of money.

So I was doing well on the Master Cleanse, up until last night. I came home to a friend of mine, Kevin, who was cooking some AMAZING food. It smelled delicious, looked delicious, and I wanted more than anything to take a bite. So I did. First I started off with trying a carrot to see how my stomach reacted, but then I just dove right in. There was a salad with mozzarella balls soaked in flavors, baby tomatoes and shrimp. Next there was a delicious sausage with pineapple, mushrooms and onions. And I don’t even know how to describe the cheesy potatoes, but they were delectable. He also had a cheesecake as dessert with ice cream and fruit that had been soaked in raspberry Vodka for days. Ultimately, I could not resist. I portioned myself and only took 2 sips of wine the entire evening.
Today I’ve decided to not go right into eating regularly, so I’m having Orange Juice diluted with water. Later tonight I play to make a soup with cabbage, squash, onions, carrots, zucchini, etc. Mmmm.
I’m glad it’s Friday and I can finally put some substance in my body. Sure, i didn’t make it the full length of time that I attempted, but I did make it a good 3 days. Although, not great, I still feel like I did a good job and I don’t plan on move hastily back into my normal eating patterns. Labor Day weekend, aka 3 day weekend and I am so excited

I’ve made it two full days on the Master Cleanse thus far. This morning, I woke up though, and realized that I only had enough maple syrup to make 8 oz glasses of me “lemonade”. This isn’t a huge deal seeing as I can go to the store and buy more, but the idea of going into a building full of food seems quite difficult at this point ha.
Quite honestly though, last night was probably the most difficult night yet. A few of my friends and I went to Bingo at Hamburger Mary’s and EVERYONE there was ordering food and drinks like no other. Seeing drinks coming and going, plates filled then empty was like pure torture. I was also exhausted, but thankfully the entertainment was amazing and I couldn’t be stopped from having a good time :)In fact, last night I happened to win a game of bingo and was able to do my prat falls in front of the entire Flipping Out cast, Sara Rue and the rest of the crowd at bingo. I always get a kick out of making my friends and everyone else laugh at my embarrassment, so that was pretty awesome. All around a good night, with good people
I’m doing pretty good so far today, but just wondering how long I’ll be able to last. My friend is coming over tonight to cook us dinner, and I want so badly to be able to enjoy it! Hopefully my will power will keep me strong enough to resist (although I’m doubting it at this point).
