touché, Bisquick

Recently approved edible solids: rice noodle, refried beans, potato.

Recently learned non-edible solids: Bisquick.

For the abominable crime of indulging in a new solid food today (in prolonged celebration of checking off a certain exam), my third major attack of this episode assaults.

It's about 2/3 what the first two were in terms of pain - ultimately quite worth it, by the way <crosses fingers in abject fear hoping that it doesn't get any worse> But really? Really, intestines? Bisquick in water with no eggs or even rice milk, and only a pinch of baby food bananas to suggest flavor?

It was the shortening, wasn't it? It had damn well better have been the shortening, because if my system is kicking back flour after 2 weeks of prednisone I'm going to be severely agitated. To be fair, however, it is just as likely an issue of having too much weight in my tummeh in general. I did, after all, have some oatmeal, 2 small pancakes and some baked potato strips all today, with two glasses of water and some tea. <smiles innocently>
