    All sounds like a good reason to try a clear liquid diet - like vodka or gin . . .
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Sorry to hear this news, Bubba. Her pain sounds just miserable. I hope she's feeling better very soon.

    Maybe just broth today, and some of her Thanksgiving meal favorites frozen for when she's feeling better?

    I hope you are doing ok, supermom/wife!

    Bubba, I'm so sorry that your daughter is so sick. I remember my dad had diverticulitis and he was in terrible terrible pain. He could only eat and drink liquids for a long time. But he slowly got over it and was put on a very strict diet. I'm sure your daughter will be given a strict diet. I'll continue to pray that she will heal. I have diverticulosis but it's nothing like the other. She should stay away from nuts and popcorn. Boy that will set it off in a minute.

    Ovarian cyst I had and it does make you very sick. Doctor wasted no time to remove the ovary and I got better.
    Try to enjoy your day and don't worry too much. That will only make you sick.

    Pat, I was going to suggest what Cathy F. has....I have known a couple of friends that have had diverticulitis and this is what they did. In fact one of the people I knew was a neighbor of mine at the time she was ill, and I took food over to her for 1-2 wks ( Clear Liquids)
    Clear Liquid Diet :
    https://medlineplus.gov/ency/patient...ons/000205.htm
    Slowly introduce :Full Liquid Diet :
    A full liquid diet is made up only of fluids and foods that are normally liquid and foods that turn to liquid when they are at room temperature, like ice cream. It also includes strained creamy soups, tea, juice, Jell-O, milkshakes, pudding, and popsicles. You can NOT eat solid foods when you are on a full liquid diet.

    I have to eat like this several times a week....( first Clear Liquids, then the Full Liquids diet(s)...)
