FYI for any students of placenames and so on, the name Gneeveguilla is from its Irish form Gníomh go Leith.  A "gníomh" is an old form of land measurement, defined as one-twelfth of a ploughland, which in turn meant the area of grass needed for one cow.  So Gníomh go Leith is the area of grass that could support one and a half cows, although probably better defined as half the area to support 3 cows, that the village was built on.

Placenames Gneeves (Brosna, Co Kerry), Two Gneeves (Cullen, Co Cork) and Three Gneeves (Cloonkeen, Co Cork) are also thus explained.

Just in case anyone was wondering.

Paging "Ball Hopper" and/or "AZOffally" to this thread please to help explain the intricacies of club football in Kerry...

http://gaaboard.com/board/index.php?topic=29146.0

Same debate every year it seems.  There are moves afoot in Kerry to change the system, but I’ve not seen any proposals.  Having more than 8 senior clubs is supposed to be part of the new system, if approved.  Moving to 12 senior clubs is most likely.  That discussion started pre-Covid and two straight knockout championships later, who knows what way the feelings are under a completely new County Board.

Progress is continuing, even if at the usual slow rate.

Had a good Christmas and New Year.  Ate enough, drank nothing and had a good time with the family.  Getting the right balance of meal times and frequency/timing of meds is the ongoing battle - everyone is different and I have to keep trying until I find the magic combination that will allow me to sleep most of the night at least.

Bathroom issues are improving though, with daily visits now down to single digits.  Of course, any stepping out of line with diet will cause grief, so I've been fairly good in that area.  The last visit with the medical team got me permission to step up from the very bland foods to something near-normal, with some exceptions.  With the intent of putting a bit more aggression toward the intestine, I was allowed to have crispy foods, but nothing deep fried yet for a few more weeks.  Add some stronger seasoning will be the path forward for now before eventually getting to a mild curry or equivalent.  That might take weeks or a few months, nobody knows.

Vegetables still not allowed unless mashed, as the intestine wouldn't be able to handle the hard items like carrots, even if boiled completely.  I thought that was odd until I found out how tough it is to mash those boiled carrots - not as easy as I thought.  Although I was allowed to step up to Chinese food, I chose not to do that until this coming week, as overstepping the mark will have a bathroom price to pay and I'll wait till this coming week to venture up the food spice chain. Some General Chicken midweek is the plan, with plain white rice.  Avoid stir fry stuff though, as the large chunks of veg won't be fully cooked.  For once, the Irish way of boiling the heck out of everything in the veg arena will suit me for a while.  Porridge is back on the menu too and I really enjoy it.  Having multiple smaller meals during the day is the way to go, with nothing within hours of bedtime.

I'll probably overstep the mark initially on some foods, but I'll have more tolerance the following week when I try those same foods again.  Eventually I'll build up said tolerance to back to near normal and away I go.  I figure the next two months will tell a lot.  Don't think I'll ever get to super spicy stuff, but I'm ok with that too.  Had a glass of wine before Christmas as a trial run - did not work out well for me, so no alcohol until March at the earliest.  Now that I know the repercussions of a glass, it is surprisingly easy to forego.

Everything else is going very well - the ileostomy site has healed full from the inside out with no sign or trace of any infection along the way.  I am eating more these days, after I had to force myself to eat the portions before Christmas.  I never thought it would be so hard to finish a small plate of meat and potatoes as it was when I just wasn't hungry at any time of the day.  Weight is just a small bit over my target, which is fine.  It means I tolerated the surgery and recovery pretty well. 

So I just have to behave myself when it comes to foods I like/want for a while.  Introducing them slowly in small quantities and building up tolerance is the key.  If I don't do that, the intestines may never come to accept such foods and I'll be stuck on the bland diet forever and any small deviation will have bathroom consequences.  The goal is to get back to normal by March, but any time up to early summer will be ok too.

I'll update again when I get closer to March, and, as always, sincere thanks for the support.

I’m going to preface these comments with the caveat that today a family member died of Covid. I have also spent most of the last three weeks in hospital for non Covid reasons.


Sorry for your loss , David.  Hope your own health issues are easing too.

General discussion / Re: Medical Status of Boardmembers
« on: December 03, 2021, 03:38:00 AM »
Hi all,

It has been a month since my ileostomy reversal, and I must admit that healing progress is very slow.  On the plus side, the ileostomy wound site is healing nicely and is down from 4 cm deep to about 1.5 cm.  Extra protein in the diet will help continue healing and it might well be 100% buttoned up by Christmas.

On the other hand, the incontinence issues are at a level that was expected after one to two weeks, rather than four weeks.  Average daily bathroom trips are in the 12-15 range, with 4-5 of those at night.  I seem to get best sleep from 6-9am or so, plus a short hour-long afternoon nap keeps me from being totally fatigued, but it is not ideal.  I need to get down to single digits per day very soon and get a good night's sleep as well - the long-term effects of not sleeping properly will lead to other health issues that might not be directly related, but may be prevented.  Of course, the effect of me getting up almost hourly some nights does impact my partner as well, and I'm not sure how best to address that if this continues to medium and long term (but I imagine the spare room will be suggested). 

The medical people say that if I don't work extra hard to get things under control in a matter of weeks or a low number of months, the body will turn my current condition into a chronic, long-term, permanent status.

Diet is very strict and they are playing around with medications and preferred times to take those "medicaments" in the hope of hitting the magic combination really soon.

Any variation in diet, even by as little as one meal or one bottle of wine, could push progress back by several days or weeks and hinder the probability of final success, so there are no "blow-out" days or meals or even drinks allowed.

So I'm on a super strict diet with regard to what I eat, when I eat, and what quantities at different times of the day.  Things are rather bland, to put it mildly.  Exercise is required, but can't do too much either as straining the body is not a good idea.  So it is not fun, even though general health is quite good and of course, the cancer-free umbrella over all I do is very comforting.

Weight is holding up well so far and I'm determined to get on top of these matters quickly, even if everything will be super-boring for the next while.  I'm told I will "observe" the Christmas holidays in the truest sense of the word in that I will not participate in any of the gluttony of food, beer, cider or wine.  I will admit that, while this will be my third sober Christmas and New Year in a row, the people around me are not too bad when I'm the only sober one.  I was willing to bet that they are no fun at all and would be really annoying even.

So a decent birthday celebration in March is what's on my horizon and I'm ok with that.  I'll update again around Christmas and hopefully I'll be making progress by then.

Thanks again for all the support and good wishes - it does help.  Everyone can have an extra dessert or drink for me so I won't feel too left out over the Christmas period.
