My husband and I have been spending what I would consider an inordinate amount of time fretting about fiber these days.
Do we have enough in our diets? Would we, well, feel better if we increased the amount we ingest on a daily basis? These are questions for the ages, I daresay.
Ralph recently had his first colonoscopy.
Good news: No polyps. Bad news: Ulcerative colitis.
The only positive thing about learning the diagnosis is at least we know what the problem is.
He also is taking medication for it that was just approved in January by the FDA. That's also good, right?
Yesterday we found out he needed another prescription, this one for potassium supplements.
We can only hope the medicines, combined with a more fiber-filled diet, help him along on the path to better health.
