Okay, so even with my many recent surgeries - this past one was the first time I've heard of a Brown Cow.
Apparently this handy little concoction is very useful if you've got some slow to non-moving post-op bowels.
1 dose Milk of Magnesia
1 small can Prune Juice
Heat juice in microwaveable cup.
Add Milk of Magnesia.

I think I'll add some chocolate milk to the mix and we will see....
