Do you have some sort of laxative? The surgery meds can mess up your works.

A bowl of Texas persimmons would work. :lol: Are they ripe soon? Or long past already ?
Vitamin B1 (thiamine) in TTFD form stimulates peristalsis. Cheap, OTC. Just make sure it's TTFD, the other forms won't do it. synthetic is TTFD, natural is allithiamine, derived from garlic. I would start on it asap, because thiamine can have paradox effect in people with low or marginal level. Start low, ease up "to bowel tolerance." Can combine with an osmotic aid like vitamin C as ascorbic acid or miralax.

Yup, recommended by the joint replacement class I attended. Got 2 kinds. Plus an array of vegetables canned from my 2021 garden. Persimmons are already done. I know there are some around here, there are young trees about 2 feet high in one of the pastures.

I love Texas Persimmons!

They scream old time homestead, and all things good to me.

Funny... the associations in our head. :idunno

What you reckon T-Bone weighs? He's not as productive as Brisket. Brisket is always eating and eats just about anything, including garlic scapes 🙄. I hope T-Bone continues to come up gradually for finishing Oct 2023.

Blah....

We missed red leaf season... way too much rain and overcast. So most of the red just went to muddy brown. :(

Yellow leaves are now up... but the second those turned some already dropped.....

Blah rainy fall. 🌧 :hide

What is the actual temperature? MSM has all of Alaska in different shades of blue. Are you guys frozen soild up there?

Jesus is Lord and Christ 🙏❤️🇺🇸
