So for the past day or so Maka hasn't been able to pass anything but this long stringy poops that are the normal color of the stuff she usually passes but it's taking her hours to pass them. She still hasn't passed the one hanging from her now. She's acting very lazy and I want to get eposm salt to help with it but I wanted to check with you guys. She's also refused food today and yesterday was spitting it out.
