B-but all she did was run and run and run and skate and run for hours before dawn each day so her mom can't stop her! Why does baby potato Jesus test her so?As long as enough of the intestines remain in the abdominal cavity, an ostomy may be reversed weeks, months, years, or even decades after the original operation. Once the ordinary course of digestion is restored, few patients regain fully normal bowel function, but a great majority report an improved quality of life.
To her Stories, Anna recently posted a lot of pictures of spiderwebs and small snakes she encountered while exercising out of doors. I did not cap these because I am sure you know what a spiderweb and a small snake look like. She also found someone's abandoned lighter and pack of cigarettes, which she takes to mean "they" want "you" to start smoking:

She complains she was left waiting in an exam room for a long time, so she worked on memorizing all the muscles in the human body from a poster. What a joke and a waste of time her education has been - in a quality program, this is something you'd learn in one semester of gross anatomy:

This is the kind of thing a four-year-old makes up, and you think it's actually pretty clever and funny coming from such a little kid, and then they say it five hundred times more, and you just want to punt that stupid Sweet Potato Baby Jesus out into the backyard and send the kid home so you never, ever have to hear about Sweet Potato Baby Jesus again.
Now imagine being Anna's parent. Yikes.
It seems like the doctors have long gotten wise to her martyr act. Instead of special tests, more pain meds, and possible surgeries, she's getting kicked over to physical therapy - which she will never go to - and told to stop irritating the injury further.
